Evil Strikes Again … This Time in Florida

I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now.  

Evil struck on Sunday morning.  It was the largest shooting massacre on American soil, as 50 people were gunned down at an Orlando bar. 

Sadly, President Obama and Hillary Clinton are now blaming guns.  The ACLU is blaming Christians.  

How ironic that anti-gun liberals never seem to want to blame the actual perpetrator.

The fact is that the killer was filled with hate.  He pledged his support to ISIS while on the phone with 9-1-1.

No amount of gun control would have been able to prevent him from finding instruments to funnel his hatred.

Gun Control Does Not Stop an Evil Heart

No Right to Concealed Carry, Says Ninth Circuit Court

You have no constitutional right to carry a concealed firearm in public.

That’s what the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just ruled, by a 7-4 margin, in a case that puts the battle for the next Supreme Court justice into even brighter focus.

Remember, the Supreme Court ruled, in two 5-4 decisions, that the Second Amendment protects an individual right (District of Columbia v. Heller) and that the protection of the right to keep and bears arms applies at the state level as well (McDonald v. City of Chicago). 

The recent death of Justice Antonin Scalia would put those and subsequent Second Amendment cases at a 4-4 split, meaning lower court rulings would stand.  And, as we know, almost all lower court rulings are terrible decisions written by rabidly anti-gun judges.

This means that whoever replaces Scalia will tip the balance.

Scroll down to the “How to Take Action” section below and submit your outrage with Obama’s plan to ban hundreds of thousands of senior citizens from owning guns — thus setting the stage for massive gun confiscations.

Obama’s Plan to Jeopardize Gun Collections and Inheritances

Barack Obama understands it is the Second Amendment community that has destroyed his legacy. 

And now, like a rabid dog, he is lashing out in an effort to destroy as many law-abiding gun owners as possible. 

His most recent scheme is the SOCIAL SECURITY GUN BAN, which was formally published in the Federal Register last month.

How broad will this regulation be? 

If you are on Social Security disability by reason of a mental health impairment, then your gun rights are gone. Period.

The regulation promises to aggressively search for and take away the gun rights of Social Security Disability recipients with PTSD, ADHD, post partem depression, Alzheimer’s, etc. 

But understand this:  Some parts of the regulation, like the definition of “adjudicated as a mental defective” in proposed CFR 421.105, are applicable to all Title II recipients, including old-age programs. 

Thus, under this language, if you are a senior and can’t “manage [your] own affairs,” you are specifically acknowledged by the Social Security Administration as being a “mental defective” for purposes of making you a prohibited person. 

And, under the NICS Amendments Improvement Act, this would impose a legal obligation on the Social Security administration to search for and turn in your name to NICS as well. 

So the question is:  Do you trust Barack Obama?  Because this regulation potentially opens a broader gun ban than it now acknowledges. 

And if Obama decides to extend the gun ban to seniors by “executive action,” this regulation will have put all of the procedures and definitions in place to do so. 

And guess what? Obama MAY argue that, if this regulation specifically acknowledges that seniors are prohibited persons, then the NICS Improvement Act will require Social Security to take their guns away.

You Have the Right to Contest Obama’s Gun Ban, if You Have $10,000

But, argues the Obama administration, errant senior citizens would have to be notified that they were losing their constitutional rights — and would have the legal ability to contest the finding. 

If there is anything we have learned from living for a decade under the Veterans Disarmament Act (or “NICS Improvement Act”), it is that the “right” to spend $10,000 in legal fees to contest the government’s finding is an ILLUSORY RIGHT which is virtually NEVER capable of being invoked. 

The “right” to use a “relief from disabilities” program to restore one’s gun rights after-the-fact is even more useless. 

How many of the 250,000-plus veterans who lost their guns — through the same star-chamber procedure now proposed for seniors — have ever successfully contested the government’s seizure of their Second Amendment rights?

It’s a very difficult and expensive process.

The bottom line is that Barack Obama now proposes to turn hundreds of thousands of law-abiding senior citizens into instant felons, subject to fifteen year jail terms.  

Obama concedes that “75,000” seniors would be turned into felons, but anyone who thinks the impact of this proposal can be contained at 75,000 grandmas and grandpas may want to remember Obama’s “You can keep your doctor” track record of veracity.

Even the Los Angeles Times last year suggested the figure could be as high as four million seniors.

Hillary Won't Stop at Just Disarming Veterans

Hillary Clinton is the Most Anti-Gun, Anti-Veteran Presidential Candidate in History

GOA hopes you had good Memorial Day weekend.

While most of us took the day off of work to enjoy friends and family, let us not forget what Memorial Day weekend was all about.

Since our nation’s founding, hundreds of thousands of American Service Members have paid the ultimate price and sacrificed their lives to keep the United States of America the land of the free and home of the brave.

Our veterans have defended the U.S. Constitution and our God-given rights.  But now we must stand up for them as Hillary Clinton and the gun grabbing left seeks to dishonor their service by depriving them of their Second Amendment rights.
