Confiscation of Legal Guns in America Begins

Obama said in 2008 that he believes “in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away,” but now he seems to favor of taking guns away from legal gun owners…like this new California law.

“I just want to be absolutely clear. Alright, So I don’t want any misunderstanding when you all go home and you are talking to your buddies and you say, ah ‘He wants to take your guns away.’ You’ve heard it here, I’m on television so everybody knows it. I believe in the Second Amendment.”  Liar-In-Chief, 2008

Fast forward to Oct. 1, 2015, when, after a shooting occurred at an Oregon community college, Obama said the following: “We know that other countries in response to one mass shooting have been able to craft laws [gun confiscation] that almost eliminate mass shootings; friends of ours, allies of ours – Great Britain, Australia – countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it. And of course what’s also routine is that somebody somewhere will comment and say, ‘Obama politicized this issue.’ Well, this is something we should politicize. It is relevant to our common life together, to the body politic.”

Obama was referring to laws passed in Great Britain and Australia in the 1990s. Both countries went on to enact legislation banning most guns, with Australia also instituting a compulsory gun buy-back program for newly banned weapon, which confiscated over 600,000 weapons.

New California Law Allowing Government To Seize Legal Guns Goes Into Effect January 1st

After a shooting rampage perpetrated by the liberal Elliot Rodger in May 2014, the bill was proposed as an “emergency restraining order” option for families concerned their loved ones may act out violent urges — if they persuade a judge that loved one’s possession of a firearm “poses an immediate and present danger of causing a personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having it in his or her custody or control.”

In other words, the “law gives us a vehicle to cause the person to surrender their weapons, to have a time out, if you will,” Los Angeles Police Department Assistant Chief Michael Moore told a local NPR affiliate.

You read that right – a government-imposed time out. Now go sit in the corner, and think about what you did.

“It’s a short duration and it allows for due process,” Moore continued. “It’s an opportunity for mental health professionals to provide an analysis of a person’s mental state.” Because, as everyone knows, mental health professionals – like police – are infallible.

Rodger was 22-years-old when he launched a series of attacks around Isla Vista near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara that left six people dead and 14 injured before he turned one of his guns on himself. All the weapons he used — three handguns and two knives — had been legally purchased. Mere minutes before carrying out his plan, Rodger uploaded a video to YouTube and circulated a 107,000-word manifesto.

How this law answers that attack on Isla Vista – with the attacker offering nothing in the way of an advance red flag about the carnage that was about to unfold – is anyone’s guess.

Even liberal UC president, Janet Napolitano, said at the time, “This is almost the kind of event that’s impossible to prevent and almost impossible to predict.”

Seeming to ignore this major factor completely, San Diego State University professor and attorney, Dr. Wendy Patrick, told a local CBS affiliate, “[I]t’s the family members, it’s the people closest to the perpetrator who are in the best position to notice red flags.”

Second Amendment and constitutional advocates have been understandably upset by the coming law, saying further rules in a state already rife with restrictive gun laws will only serve to punish law-abiding gun owners.

“We don’t need another law to solve this problem,” asserted Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, to the Associated Press, as reported by the Washington Times. “We think this just misses the mark and may create a situation where law-abiding gun owners are put in jeopardy.”

What could possibly go wrong?

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
