NRA official: Obama wants to outlaw guns in 2nd term !!!

NRA official: Obama wants to outlaw guns in 2nd term

While 49 other states have ratified Concealed Carry laws, Illinois is diligently working to track and punish their own citizens for exercising their Constitutional rights. If Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has his way, gun owners will not only be tracked in the same manner as sex offenders, but will be slapped with a repeating $65 fee…for each gun.

Rahm Emanuel proposes $65 per-gun fee and registry

Chicago Sun Times

Emanuel’s proposal would require all handgun owners to obtain a certificate of registration from the State Police for every handgun they own — at a cost of $65-per-weapon — and to renew that registration every five years.

They would be required to provide: their name, address and telephone number; the manufacturer of the gun, its model type and serial number; and the date and source of the purchase.

Whenever a handgun is sold, the seller would be required to report the sale to the State Police “no less than 48 hours prior to delivery.” Handgun buyers would have 20 days to file for a new certificate of registration. Anyone caught carrying or possessing an unregistered handgun would face a Class 2 felony.

If gun owners cannot afford to pay the $65 fee for each gun they must turn their guns in to local law enforcement for destruction. Punishment for not complying is a Class 2 Felony. How unfortunate for the rest of the good people of Illinois to have the scourge of Chicago in their state. And this fresh on the heels of signing a check for $399,950 to the Second Amendment Foundation after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Chicago’s ban on handguns…because it was unconstitutional.

If you think this is a bummer for the residents of Illinois, just wait. Emanuel, the heart and soul of the first two years of the Obama administration, is tipping Obama’s hand for his second term.

At the CPAC on Friday, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre had this warning…

NRA official: Obama wants to outlaw guns in 2nd term

The Washington Times

While delivering one of the liveliest and best-received speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said the president’s low-key approach to gun rights during his first term was “a “conspiracy to ensure re-election by lulling gun owners to sleep.”

“We see the president’s strategy crystal clear: Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms’ freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S.

Mr. LaPierre said the president's two Supreme Court appointees — Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan— are "two of the most rabid anti-gun justices in history." He also accused Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of being a foe of gun rights.

And with the possibility of two or more Supreme Court justice positions opening during the next four years, the NRA official warned that gun ownership would be in jeopardy if Mr. Obama stays in office.

"If we get one more like those three, the Second Amendment is finished," he said. "It'll be the end of our freedom forever."

Mr. LaPierre, who said "there is no greater freedom than to own a firearm," predicted that gun owners will rally en masse to defeat Mr. Obama in November.

"All of what we know is good and right about America, all of it could be lost if Barack Obama is re-elected," he said. "It's all or nothing."

Obama is a nightmare for the Second Amendment. He wants to make sure the government and criminals have guns…and the citizens don’t. You can’t have Marxism until you disarm the populace. It looks like the state of Illinois will be the first state to institute Marxism in the Union. Thanks for nothing, Rahm/Chicago. Just wait until Obama’s second term and he gets to appoint two more Supreme Court Justices…Chicago will be the United States.


Wild Thing's comment.........

These people refuse to read plain English. “. . . the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

A mandatory fee IS an infringement.

May God help us all if this idiot-in-chief is re-elected.

Pay a fee of $65 per gun. Doesn't that jerk Emanuel realize that fee was already paid in blood on battlefields all over the world and United States?

Only a Constitution hating liberal would want Americans to pay to exercise their Constitutional Rights.

My lack of faith in the voting public caused me to recently buy several more cases of my favorite "assault" rifle and handgun fodder. There is little doubt that a lame duck obama would appoint a gun "czar" to oversee the effort to destroy the Second Amendment and criminalize/enslave us gunners. I still think that Texans(and Okies and other Southern and Western staters) would revolt against a Chicago type gun ban. As would most local police. In the Free States(red) most cops are some of the biggest gun lovers. Can you visualize a Federal Govt. trying to tell Gov. Rick Perry that he cannot have his guns unless he registers them with the Feds.
