UPDATE: March 03
Mike Hammond: HR 45 May be More Troubling Than the Average Anti-gun Bill Legislation may reflect Obama’s thinking.
* H.R. 45 would require a federal license for all handguns and semiautomatics, including those you currently possess; and
* It would require handgun and semi-auto owners to be thumbprinted at the police station and to sign a certificate that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family.
Pretty scary, huh? But, while this despotic nuttiness makes you wonder why a congressman from the Murder Capital of the Midwest would think that it would help to make the residents of New Hampshire, Alaska, and Wyoming comply with his blood-soaked city’s anti-gun laws, there have been other bills which are just as unconstitutional.
You may be thinking, “I’m just a hunter with a deer rifle… surely, none of this is relevant to me”?
Combined with the Ammunition Accountability effort to outlaw ammunition in numerous states, this two-pronged attack would soon make gun ownership a thing of the past.
Barack Obama was fond of saying during the campaign that he supported the Second Amendment. And we read of gun buyers who are flocking -– while it is still legal -– to purchase firearms, but who concede that they believed Obama’s assurances and voted for him.
But we may soon see a more horrific, nastier side of Barack Obama… and a capacity to go after his political enemies. And we have to assume that he will view gun owners as just about the most important of those enemies. Read More
Gun Control Introduced in Congress
This nefarious bill seeks to strip us all of our Constitutional Rights to possess and bear firearms of any distinction. It requires, within the first two years, that all new guns be registered. The bill goes retroactive after two years. Meaning that two years after the passage of the bill, ALL FIREARMS in a citizen’s possession must be registered, not just those purchased after the bill passes, and this apparently applies to antique firearms as well.
Every five years the firearm owner must go through a complete renewal process for each weapon owned. Failure to comply carries stiff penalties including confiscation of the firearms and jail time (penalties as high as ten years imprisonment in some cases). The bill also authorizes government searches without warrant, the creation of a federal bureaucracy to monitor firearm possession, etc. Read More

Remember this post from February 2, 2009 ?
Rep. Alcee L. Hastings D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations
More questions of what Obama is up to.
Defense Department Establishes Civilian Expeditionary Workforce for combat-support missions
The Defense Department is forming a civilian expeditionary workforce that will be trained and equipped to deploy overseas in support of military missions worldwide, according to department officials.
Remember Obama said he would start his own civilian military to patrol the homeland of America…this military he said would be as well funded as our regular military is and as well equip as our regular military. Imagine a civilian military with TANKS, military weapons patroling your area where you live. Why would Obama need such a military? Whats up with this? Oh I know we are getting mixed signs about this from Obama as always talks out both sides of mouth.
Now is the time to start contacting your congressmen and demanding that they support your rights to own guns. You can not wait to the last minute, act now cause Obama will take your guns! Sarah Palin is looking better for 2012!
