Most of us, myself included, have always thought that the notion of Mass Gun Confiscation is unrealistic in the United States. Have we been wrong?
H/t to Breitbart for the find…
FrontPage Mag published an article Monday that provides five proofs that Democrats are on the verge of a sweeping gun confiscation push.
A new Obama administration healthcare rule “allowing health care [sic] providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system.” Because the definition of “mentally ill” is arbitrary, FrontPage Mag predicts the moniker of “mentally ill” will begin to be applied to “any belief or behavior that the left would like to stamp out– fervent adherence to the Constitution, homeschooling, and climate change ‘denial,’ for example–enabling the government to categorize those gun owners as mentally ill and disarm them.”
Executive expansion of the number of ATF and FBI personnel focused on guns. Obama’s January 5 executive gun controls included the addition of 200 new ATF agents, along with another 230 FBI personnel. The White House said the new ATF agents will “help enforce our gun laws” while the FBI personnel will help process background checks. The Washington Examiner pointed out that these 430 new federal positions–focused on guns–constitute a force “more than eight times the size of the team of commandos he is sending to the Middle East to take on ISIS.”
Increased, unvarnished calls for all-out bans on semiautomatic weapons. The Washington Post’s Eugene Volokh explained, “These aren’t calls for restricting supposedly narrow categories of guns that are allegedly used predominantly by criminals. These are calls for banning the sorts of guns that tens of millions of law-abiding Americans have in their homes.” Volokh explains the progression–from seeking a ban on “Saturday Night Specials” in the 1970s to a ban on “assault weapons” in the 1990s and 2000s to seeking an all-out ban on the possession of semiautomatic weapons now.
