Obama: eliminating 5.56 mm rounds

M885 Round, 5.56 mm (.223)In a naked attempt to eliminate the most common American long gun extant: the AR-15 rifle chambered in 5.56 mm caliber.

And let there be no mistake.

Why are all of these issues and topics being pushed and steamrollered all at once?

I submit: easy.  Because the current Obama Administration and what the Leftists believe will be the next Clinton Administration are in the process of, yes, fundamentally transforming this nation into what they believe will be, finally, the new global paradigm of Socialism.

Each Socialist regime believes that it can “do” Socialism much better than their predecessor — if only they were given the opportunity.  Never mind that Socialism has never worked for any country at any time in the entire history of this planet.

Obama and fellow Leftist Demorats believe they can “do” Socialism better than anyone else — despite the fact that Socialism isn’t working for Europe.

Question: what do you call doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results?

Of course you know that answer.

Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

by Paul Bedard

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

The question is: will Congress do it?  And will they have the cojones to actually move against the president’s imperial actions via BATFE?

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used “ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”

At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.

This AP ammunition, because it was (past tense) so plentiful, is popular with American shooters.  You’ll notice, Leftists, per the top photo, these are not “dum-dum” or “hollow point” rounds.

The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals. The agency proposes to reclassify it as armor-piercing and not exempt.

Please read the rest of the article here.

This is, frankly, an excuse for the proverbial “foot-in-the-door” trick.  The goal?  To chip away at the Second Amendment in the US Bill of Rights.

Why the push to regulate the internet?  Why the push to eliminate firearms?

It’s all about control and the elimination of pushback, opposition to policies that people believe to be Socialist in nature.  Eliminate the Second Amendment and you can readily eliminate the First Amendment.

I’m a cop; at least for a few more months until I retire.  And there isn’t a rifle round that already won’t go through my vest, from .223 to .308 and most all points in between.  How about some graphics?

GUN CONTROL Gun StatsObama knows full well: he who controls the ammunition, in truth, controls the firearm.

If you can’t eliminate the firearms, eliminate their ability to shoot.

On the cusp of banning firearms in Fornicalia?

MicrostampingYes.  One federal judge could make all the difference in the world.

From FoxNews.com:

Gun rights groups await judge’s ruling on California’s ‘microstamping’ law

by Malia Zimmerman

California’s gun laws are among the nation’s strictest, but a looming decision in a federal lawsuit could effectively ban handguns altogether in the Golden State, according to plaintiffs who want a judge to toss out a state law requiring all new handguns to be equipped with technology that “stamps” each shell casing with a traceable mark. 

The problem with the “microstamping” law, which was signed into law by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007 but only took effect in 2013, is that it relies on an unworkable technology, according to gun manufacturers and attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation. If guns without the technology can’t be sold in California, and gun manufacturers can’t implement the technology, the law is, for practical purposes, a handgun ban that violates the Second Amendment, goes the argument.

Thanks Arnold, you blubbering, steroid-ridden baboon.  And all with an (R) at the back of your name, as in (R)apist, for screwing over our Second Amendment.

“This is about the state trying to eliminate the handgun market,” said Alan Gura, the lead attorney in Pena v. Lindley, filed on behalf of the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation against the Chief of the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms. “The evidence submitted by the manufacturers shows this is science fiction and there is not a practical way to implement the law.

It’s the same reason Ronnie Barrett refuses to sell or service his .50 caliber BMG rifles any more in California, whether they are held by private owners or law enforcement agencies.  Ruger has already stopped selling semi-automatic handguns in Fornicalia.

Since the law took effect in 2013, no manufacturer has made a new firearm that complies with the requirement.Two major manufacturers, Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger & Co., announced last year they would stop selling new firearms in the California market, and blamed the microstamping law. The technology has been demonstrated, but gunmakers say requirements that each new model, or even modification, must be re-tested for compliance makes the entire scheme unworkable.

When you, as a Leftist, hate guns, fear guns, and detest the thought of them in the hands of private citizens, you do your very best to eliminate them by any means possible.

This all dovetails.  Why is there a push to control the internet?  To silence DC pushback on various Leftist plans.  Why is there a continuing and unrelenting tsunami to take guns from American citizens?  Because, as with the internet, when you silence citizens you eliminate pushback.  How do you guarantee the average citizen cannot “push back” against the government?  You eliminate the Second Amendment.

Because when you eliminate the Second Amendment you will, by extension, help to eliminate the First Amendment.

Then you truly do have Serfs, Proles and Groundlings in the United States of America.

The Second Amendment doesn’t exist to protect hunters.  If you believe that, you are a complete fool.

2011 DeathsThe Second Amendment exists to keep the individual citizen safe from the over-reaching powers of an oppressive government.  And to guarantee free speech.

See anything like that recently?

Western civilization has Islam wrong:

KoranAbsolutely correct.

Western civilization and nations have Islam completely wrong, as Islam has been telling you for quite some time.

It isn’t Islamists that aren’t following the Quran.

It’s so-called “moderate Muslims.”

Ponder that for a moment.

Then read “Why Islam Creates Monsters.”

West: “moderate” Muslims the exception, not the rule

This is, perhaps, the most important post I’ve made to date.

On any number of levels, from any number of GOWP sources, we are constantly barraged by the Leftist meme that violent Islamist individuals and groups who carry out bombings, killings, beheadings, spilling blood in the name of Islam, are the exception and not the rule.

..اسلام به عنوسلام به عنوان اسلام می کند

I said a number of years ago and say now: “Islam IS as Islam DOES.”  Nothing more complicated or cerebral than that.  To excuse Islam from actions carried out in its name excuses over a thousand years of bloodshed and unnecessary deaths on behalf of a barbarous religion that is unmatched in its ferocity via any other religion on the planet.

Islam isn’t “gray” and it isn’t “nuanced” and it isn’t “subtle.”  Islam will and does tell you precisely what it wants day after day after day.  And we, the various Western nations, are not listening.

Worse yet, we are choosing not to listen.

“Those who make all Islam their enemy not only succumb to a simplistic and essentialist illusion but they lack any mechanism to defeat it.”

An incredibly simplistic statement in and among itself, promulgated by Leftists.

Most lawful citizens of Western nations are good people.  They want to believe in the inherent goodness of people.  They want to see the proverbial glass as half full, as opposed to half empty.  They want to believe that most issues can be solved with good will, communication, positive intent and low voices.

With the exception of Islam.  Which has proven over the past thousand + years that it cannot be reasoned with, it cannot be corrupted, it cannot be subsumed, it cannot be modulated and it cannot be ignored.

Please listen to Colonel Allen West as he happens to nail Islam precisely, and names it for what it is:

Sadly, Allen West refutes feelings and emotions with nothing but solid facts and history and knowledge.  To the detriment of Leftists and Muslims and Muslim-apologists.

It really is this simple: Islam is as Islam does.

Islam is a cancer.  The problem to date: there is no chemo for Islam.
