Americans' Right To Arms is a Project of Patriot PAC
NEW H.R. 3516 WILL HALT OBAMA
S. 2002 is a GUN GRAB TRAP!
Legislation will 'Protect' Vets, Seniors at
YOUR URGENT SUPPORT FOR H.R. 3516, the Social Security Beneficiary Second Amendment Rights Protection Act, is needed TODAY!
HEARING YOU, Texas Republican Rep. Sam Johnson has introduced H.R. 3516 to STOP Obama's illicit scheme for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to add millions of America's seniors the population most likely to own a firearm to the National Instant Background Check System.
Gun confiscation was underway for MILLIONS of older Americans for something so petty as having a designated person to help manage their finances NO DUE PROCESS REQUIRED!
Defend the RIGHT that defends ALL OTHERS! Stand for YOUR Second Amendment protections to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, and BLAST CONGRESS TO ENACT H.R. 3516 WITHOUT DELAY!
Because of YOUR PRESSURE, Obama's SSA hacks went on a P.R. blitz downplaying this sly scheme to strip away our liberties via one government agency at a time. Since SO FAR Obama has been unable to get Congress to do his dirty gun-grabbing work for him he is HELLBENT to abuse his Executive powers to do so, using gun-grabbing bureaucrats. HE MUST BE STOPPED!
"It's no secret President Obama isn't a fan of our Second Amendment," Rep. Johnson said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. "Because he failed to push his gun control agenda through Congress, his administration is now seeking to deny millions of law-abiding Americans their right to bear arms by going through Social Security. Old age or a disability does not make someone a threat to society."
He continued: "These folks should be able to defend themselves just like everyone else, and Social Security has no business stripping them of that right."
Johnson's bill, H.R. 3516, will stop Obama's bureaucratic blitzkrieg on our constitutional right to keep and bear arms BUT ONLY IF YOU DEMAND IT.
Remember, as we've previously warned, RINO bill S. 2002 is sitting in the Chicken Little McConnell Senate. It purports to protect our seniors but does so at the expense of the liberties of everyone else!
WE NEED YOUR HELP MAKING SURE CONGRESS KNOWS WE WANT MEANINGFUL RESISTANCE NOT 'FOOL-THE-VOTER' CAPITULATIONS!
While resistance is rising in the House, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) is right now attempting to pull a fast one on all gun-loving Americans with S. 2002, a bill touted as PROTECTING gun right for veterans and seniors.
The truth is, this bill CLAIMS to avoid illegal bureaucratic "mental health" dragnets and intrusive reporting to the NICS background check system in exchange for EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS but it STILL SUPPORTS A NATIONAL GUN-OWNERS DATABASE AND WEAPONS CONFISCATION SYSTEM!
These are the hallmarks of tyranny, and MUST NOT be tolerated!
Cornyn's legislation DOESN'T EVEN TRY to fix the broken system that is wrongfully disarming sane, law abiding, no-threat Americans while missing those like the South Carolina neo-Nazi who massacred Christians! And it's all wrapped in a nice little package about protecting our veterans and seniors!
DON'T BE FOOLED!
Whether under the Obama regime or the next regardless of party the Federal government CANNOT be trusted with monitoring of the mentally ill; such monitoring must remain with local and State jurisdictions for the safety of the Second Amendment rights of ALL AMERICANS. Otherwise, there is NOTHING to prevent ever more "background check" data relayed to the Feds from metastasizing into a NATIONAL GUN-OWNERS DATABASE for our elected elites and bureaucrats to use coercively and punitively against us.
Defend YOUR liberty while you can! Cornyn SHOULD NOT be helping the anti-gunners hold our vets' and seniors' gun rights hostage to more gun control and less freedom!
THIS BILL WILL GET PUT ON OBAMA'S DESK UNLESS YOU SHUT IT DOWN!
The NRA has rubber-stamped this bill but grassroots fighters like Gun Owners of America are SOUNDING THE ALARM and WE AGREE! this deception is all set to be slammed through the House and Senate as soon as Congress returns from August recess.
The Social Security Administration sent a classic CYA response to Rep. Sam Johnson's letter demanding more information on the agency's proposed reporting on seniors and others receiving the SS federal benefit to the NICS background check system in many cases for no other reason than a recipient having a representative payee. This disarmament is being done WITH NO DUE PROCESS granted in the automatic stripping of Americans' Second Amendment rights an anti-gun, anti-freedom assault similar to that employed by the Veterans Administration to DISARM OUR VETS!
The last thing we need is this Cornyn "appeasement" bill S. 2002, to halt the VA and SSA or any other Federal agency from reporting individuals to NICS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS AND PROPER ADJUDICATION confirming the individual in question is in fact a danger to themselves or others AT THE EXPENSE OF MANDATORY 'MENTAL HEALTH' REPORTING BY OUR STATES! Remember, if the States do not comply they LOSE Federal grant money
S. 2002 MUST BE REJECTED OUTRIGHT AT ONCE AND REAL REFORMS LIKE H.R. 3516 PUT ON OBAMA'S DESK!
YOUR support is needed NOW to rally a strong pro-gun Republican majority against RINO collaborators in Congress who want to "go along" with Obama
Believe it or not, Obama is trying to use his bureaucratic bludgeon to beat the Second Amendment to death for the largest gun-owning demographic in the United States, our vulnerable SENIORS!
"Old age or a disability doesn't make someone a threat to society. Having a representative payee should not be grounds to revoke constitutional rights. We strongly urge you to halt any steps to provide information on Social Security beneficiaries or Supplemental Security Income recipients to the NICS," so said Rep. Johnson and other members of Congress wrote in a letter to Carolyn Colvin, Acting Commission for Social Security.
Colvin has since responded that no names have yet been turned over but that the SSA is "looking at possible implementation scenarios." It does NOT rule out that having a representative payee will result in disarmament.
While this letter is a great start, WE NEED MORE THAN A LETTER WE NEED TO DEFEND OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!
THAT MEANS WE DON'T NEED S. 2002 WE NEED H.R. 3516!
The Second Amendment rights of America's law-abiding senior citizens many of whom are our most revered VETERANS are in jeopardy. The Obama administration is stealthily moving to expand the "mental health" dragnet by mandating Social Security now report seniors' health information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to a new report by the Los Angeles Times.
Like the mandated Veterans Affairs reporting, all it will take is being deemed unable to manage their personal affairs like finances because of "marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease," and their gun rights are gone.
And just like the VA reporting, that by the Social Security administration is bound to be riddled with inaccuracies and errors leaving our seniors to jump through expensive hoops to get their lawful gun rights restored.
According to the Times report, the Social Security agency "has been drafting its policy outside of public view."
ONLY YOUR PUBLIC OUTRAGE WILL SHUT IT DOWN!
Now that the story has broken, WE NEED YOUR HELP EXPOSING OBAMA'S NEWEST EXECUTIVE FIAT TARGETING OUT SENIORS! This is the baby boomer generation, who either themselves or their parents fought for to save this country and the world from Hitler in World War II
And this is their thanks from Barack Obama.
Only you can rally Congress to STAND WITH OUR SENIORS and OUR VETERANS against Obama's ever-expanding mental health dragnet!
Obama is not backing down from his "fundamental transformation" of America, and especially not when he thinks he can transform this nation of LIBERTY from one with gun rights into one with NO RIGHTS, starting with YOUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!
Right now, this administration is prepping over a dozen "executive actions" to gut the Second Amendment rights of "mental defectives" something that could apply first and foremost to our VETERANS returning from overseas for so little as seeking out family counseling or therapy!
The pitch is that Obama's "dirty dozen" gun control executive orders will "keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people." But THEY WON'T.
They WON'T keep guns from people like deranged Newtown murderer Adam Lanza who stole his from his law-abiding mother. Or like the Aurora, CO movie theater killer whose insane homicidal spiral was simply missed by mental health professionals even when he reached out for help.
Serious mental health issues WERE the problem in both cases above and Obama's proposed anti-Second Amendment actions wouldn't have stopped them!
But they WILL stop our veterans and other Americans in need of depression counseling, therapy in readjusting after deployment, or other treatment from seeking it!
MAKE NO MISTAKE: This is just a convenient excuse for implementing MORE GUN CONTROL even if it will DO NOTHING to save innocent Americans. It demonizes our fine veterans and in fact puts more Americans' well-being in jeopardy by discouraging important counseling services. But from Obama's perspective, where better to intensify gun control than with our vets, whose healthcare is already being overseen BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
Considering it's coming from this regime, which has admitted to monitoring "right wing" social media right along with ISIS terrorist networking, we know just who they are trying to DISARM and it is already happening.
DEMAND CONGRESS RE-INTRODUCE AND PASS S. 572/H.R. 577, the 'Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act,' BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
According to a shocking memo first obtained by The Daily Caller, the FBI is working hand-in-glove with the Obama Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to strip America's soldiers from their right to keep and bear arms.
These corrupt apparatchiks are doing WHATEVER it takes from distorting "confidential" interviews, to manipulating privileged medical information, to flat out lying about or exaggerating the "mismanagement" of vets personal financial matters to eradicate the Second Amendment rights of our brave fellow citizens who answered the call and put their lives on the line FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM.
Congress MUST ACT and ENSURE the Feds AND the State police powers colluding in this travesty STOP THIS ABUSE OF OUR VETERANS NOW! This is unconstitutional and unjust, and if you are passive and tolerate this abuse upon others, it WILL next be visited by a tyrannical Obama regime upon YOU.
A memo dated February 2012, is entitled: "Memorandum Of Understanding Between The United States Department Of Veterans Affairs And The Federal Bureau Of Investigation Regarding The National Instant Criminal Background Check System."
It stipulates that the VA MUST provide a veterans' personal information to the FBI:
VA will provide an encrypted compact disc exchanged via mail to the FBI no less than quarterly for, inter alia, inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
In fact, it reveals a "monthly CD" is submitted by the VA information technology center in Austin, Texas, to the FBI with NEW NAMES of veterans added to the "watch list" our veterans enjoy ZERO citizens' privilege they are data-based like criminals!
Veteran Douglas Szklarski, one of those vets, told The Daily Caller,
"I've had like nine doctors say I wasn't incompetent and they still went after my guns," Szklarski added. "ATF came to my house. I had to surrender them."
And it's only going to get worse, folks On Apr. 25, Obama's anti-gun surgeon general Vivek Murthy in an interview with NPR re-affirmed his commitment to eradicating "gun violence" as a PUBLIC HEALTH concern while ObamaCare continues infringing on our rights and privacy within the sanctity of our doctors' offices and hospitals these VA anti-gun maneuvers are but a TRIAL RUN to see what "public health" gun grab schemes they can get away with
MANY veterans are placed on this list deeming them "disqualified" for firearms possession after being declared financially 'incompetent' by the Veterans Administration a far cry from being determined to be dangerous to anyone, themselves included!
Could you imagine if this "criteria" of financial mismanagement were applied to civilians? THERE WOULD BE RIOTS IN THE STREETS!
Yet, the VA is getting away with disarming our veterans using criteria that do NOT meet the federal government's own standards of "danger!" to make this list.
According to a 2013 Senate report, the VA's recommendations account for 99 percent of the people in the "mental defective" category of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
AND OBAMA'S ANTI-GUN RADICALS ARE TAKING THEIR CUES ACCORDINGLY THEY WILL ONLY GROW MORE BRAZEN UNLESS CONGRESS STANDS UP FOR OUR VETERANS AND STARTS CRACKING DOWN ON THE GUN GRABBERS NOW!
It is swiftly becoming the next big political correctness taboo to dare question the eradication of Second Amendment rights for any one alleged to be "mentally ill"
California the bellwether State for liberals to see just how far they can go when it comes to trampling Americans' rights is ENACTING a NEW "mental health" disarmament dragnet this year WITH REPUBLICAN PARTY SUPPORT!
WE NEED GUNNERS LEFT RIGHT AND CENTER TO STEP UP AND DEFEND OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS TODAY, especially those of our targeted military veterans, former LEOs, senior citizens and patriots!
ONLY YOU CAN BRING COMMON SENSE BACK TO CAPITOL HILL, OUR STATES AND THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION!
A dozen California GOP State senators sent a letter to State Attorney General Kamala Harris calling for an oversight hearing on the State's latest aggression in confiscating firearms from "prohibited persons," or those whose names appear on the flaw-ridden Armed Prohibited Persons System.
This is a one of a kind State database A MENTAL HEALTH GUN REGISTRY created in 2007 for the purported purpose of cross-referencing firearms owners against a "separate" list of aforementioned "prohibited persons."
Should the two lists collide, the State's Department of Justice sends a swarm of ARMED agents to the home to DISARM THE CITIZEN SEIZING ALL FIREARMS IN THE HOME.
The GOP's letter's prime "accountability" concern is that for an extra $24 MILLION in funding, there was only a net increase of 1,616 confiscated firearms out of an expected 40,000 ESTIMATED to be in the possession of "prohibited persons."
NOT TO MENTION that with such raids that introduced aggressive police action to uninvited civilian contact, the opportunity for an unintended violent "incident" is VASTLY HEIGHTENED!
Certainly, keeping firearms out of the hands of the truly mentally ill IS a worthwhile objective, BUT this ill-conceived and poorly executed program is not AND THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY IN SIGHT!
According to Gun Owners of California, anywhere from 40 percent to 60 percent of the names on this list SHOULD NOT BE THERE AT ALL but appear because of bureaucratic bungling or because citizens do not know they have to fill out forms x, y, and z and petition the court for restoration of their Second Amendment rights!
Many possibly most don't even know their names are on the list.
AND according to a 2013 State Auditor report, 37 percent of firearms simply were wrongly confiscated!
"They show up in full regalia armor, machine guns and black SUVs," said Sam Paredes, the Gun Owners of California's executive director. "Very few judges will give search warrants because the information is so sketchy, so they go and knock on the door and try to bully their way into the home."
And simply handing over a firearm to a relative (at another address) for safekeeping isn't good enough The SWAT team just goes there to seize the weapon.
This abuse by the Leviathan State creates unnecessary occasions for VIOLENT RESPONSES, as if we don't have enough of THOSE in the news
CONGRESS MUST LEAD THE WAY IN DEFENDING OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS. Demand they begin by reintroducing and passing S. 572 and H.R. 577, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act and take the bullseye off our honored Vets who are specifically targeted in this unconstitutional dragnet!
Meanwhile, back at the State Capitol, LEGISLATORS CONTINUE TO EXPAND THE NUMBER OF WAYS TO PUT YOU ON THIS LIST!
California must feel the backlash of angry citizens sick of tyrannical government control and destruction of our rights.
ALL 50 STATES NEED TO HEAR YOU BEFORE THE 'MENTAL HEALTH' SLIPPERY SLOPE GAINS ANY TRACTION AND CONGRESS NEEDS TO STEP UP!
In as early as an October 2013 editorial for Science Daily, Dr. J. Michael Bostwick of the Mayo Clinic wrote: "We physicians generally do not know enough about firearms to have an informed conversation with our patients, let alone counsel them about gun safety."
Dr. Bostwick RIGHTLY and JUSTLY argues:
Dr. Richard Friedman: " there is overwhelming epidemiological evidence that the vast majority of people with psychiatric disorders (the mentally ill) do not commit violent acts. Only about 4 percent of violence in the United States can be attributed to people with mental illness."
But that didn't stop RINO U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) from SUCKING UP to the gun grabbers after the Newtown CT tragedy and pushing their own NATIONAL background check bill targeting the mentally ill for inclusion on the lifetime gun ban list! Unjust! For shame! Help us SHUT THEM and their S. 2002 sham bill DOWN!
FOLKS, THERE IS A REASON GUN OWNERSHIP RECENTLY HAS SURGED TO 47% ACCORDING TO GALLUP THE HIGHEST IN FOUR DECADES! OUR GUN RIGHTS ARE ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK!
IF YOU DON'T JOIN US IN THIS FIGHT, IT WILL BE TOO LATE!
The writing is on the wall when it comes to just how far this administration with its cowardly State-based AND Congressional RINO collaborators is willing to go to destroy our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Obama and the gun grabbers will stop at NOTHING to confiscate our weapons of self defense and self determination, and they have found the "common sense" pretext of "competency and mental health" to get establishment Republicans to carry their water for them!
To help counter the MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in anti-gun campaign cash already pouring to rig the 114th Congress AND elections 2016, and paying for Obama's gun control propaganda, WE NEED GUN RIGHTS SUPPORTERS TO RAMP UP THEIR EFFORTS NOW.
Elderly DOES NOT mean incompetent and veteran DOES NOT mean ill or disturbed!
We must HIT Congress and our States HARD, NOW so that they particularly McConnell, McCain, Graham, Toomey and all the rest of the RINO Establishment KNOW that WE ARE PAYING ATTENTION AND WE ARE READY TO FIGHT ALL COMERS, INCLUDING THEM, FOR OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS IN 2014!
As REQUIRED by the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that no person shall " be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law ", EVERY STATE in the United States protects EVERY American soldiers, seniors and civilians alike from being declared 'incompetent' without due process of law which usually REQUIRES A JUDICIAL HEARING WITH EVIDENCE BEING OFFERED!
But Barack Hussein Obama wouldn't want a judicial speed bump to slow his plot to disarm America, so he is simply going around the Fifth Amendment, bypassing Due Process right along with the Separation of Powers AND UNLEASHING HIS ANTI-GUN APPARATCHIKS IN OUR STATES!
WE SAY, NOT ON OUR WATCH!
Remember, the SAME logic already being invoked specifically to DISARM AMERICA'S VETERANS through the VA medical system applied across the general population would mean those taking mood elevators to stop smoking, sleeping aids, SSRIs for stress and mild depression, and those also affected with PTSD like BATTERED WOMEN could also see their Second Amendment rights decimated under the Obama regime.
This is ALREADY BEGINNING with our vulnerable senior citizens! Obama is just starting with those among us most experienced with conflict and proven ready to put their lives on the line for freedom and then moving to disarm other population sets.
We need YOUR help to DEMAND Congress re-introduce and enact S. 572 and H.R. 577, so Obama and his faction KNOW the Constitution is still the law of the land!
With your support, we can defend the Second Amendment rights of our soldiers and citizens from his gun grab edicts but we must RESPOND right now REPUDIATING Obama's Executive actions to EXTEND his disarmament of the nation.
We are pursuing a full-court lobbying and blast-fax campaign on the new Republican-controlled Congress to RE-INTRODUCE AND PASS S. 572 and H.R. 577 because Obama is so out of control we KNOW we must head to both Congress AND to our States NOW, IMMEDIATELY with our Veterans AND NOW our seniors on social security before the force of government comes come for ALL our guns!
WE MUST STAND WITH OUR VETERANS AND FOR OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TODAY, THIS MOMENT, ALL THE WAY!
Will you help us?
