Gun-toting antigun Senator Dianne Feinstein’s attack on the Second Amendment is only the beginning:
The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.
A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.
“Mental health checks” and “penalties for carrying guns near schools” may sound reasonable superficially, but can be used to encroach unacceptably upon your indispensable right to bear arms.
This gives an idea of how serious the situation has become:
The White House is working with aides to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on a broader package of gun-violence initiatives…
There is no public figure more vociferously hostile to the liberties that define this country than NYC’s fascistic mayor, whose lust to dictate even the most trivial minutiae of other people’s lives has already resulted in a ban on large cups of soda in the hyper-regulated moonbat dystopia over which he rules.
Obama et al. are making calculations as to how far they can push their agenda without encountering armed resistance. They will not stop a millimeter short of that point.
