Obama Threatens Our Constitutional Rights
Like it or not, the Second Amendment is part of our Constitution. Obama and his Chicago Mafia, however, don't like the Second Amendment, which is part of the Bill of Rights. In fact, they don't much like the Constitution as a whole. But let's concentrate here on the right to bear arms, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Gun owners - legal, law abiding gun owners - have been under attack by the anti-Constitution crowd for decades. But now, as pointed out by NRA Institute for Legislative Action, the rights of gun owners is in greater danger than ever. (As a historical note, you should know that the first thing that any dictator does when they first take power is to take away the guns away from those they wish to subjugate.) The NRA-ILA states on their web site: Barack Obama and Joe Biden will take oaths to uphold the Constitution, but we know by their deeds and their words that they believe the Second Amendment rights of American citizens must be severely restricted. We know the people Obama will appoint to his cabinet and to other federal offices will be almost universally anti-gun. Obama’s selection of Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff is a perfect example of the hostility the Obama White House will have for gun owners’ rights. Emanuel, now an anti-gun congressman from Illinois, was once described as the Clinton administration’s "point man on gun control." Continued... Back to the dictators and gun control: In 1928, five years before the rise of Hitler, Germany's freely elected government enacted a "Law on Firearms and Ammunition." This law required anyone who owned a firearm, or who wanted to own a firearm, to make themselves known to the authorities....."Proof of need" was made a condition for issuance of all licenses, not just the carry permit. Mandatory prison sentences were imposed on anyone who professionally sold or transferred a firearm or ammunition without a license....As a result of the 1928 Law, all firearms and firearms owners were registered. To take firearms from anyone they distrusted, the Nazis simply did not renew permits....Nazis could now easily confiscate all firearms and ammunition from any, or all, selected groups. The gun law of 1928 had served the Nazis well. It made almost all law abiding firearms owners known to the authorities. The 1928 law on firearms and ammunition helped the Nazis to destroy democracy in Germany, by disarming the law abiding majority, whom they feared. Full essay...

In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
