If Obama Wins...

If the polls are to be believed, one week from today we will be electing the Senator who has been rated the most liberal Senator in history to the office of President of The United States. If the Democrats can get enough people to the polls to elect Obama, then I fear they will get enough people to the polls to gain a super-majority in Congress. What Republicans that are left may very well be powerless to even slow down the avalanche of leftist legislation that will fly across capitol hill straight to the President's desk. We can stop this, I am not sure that we will, but we can. In the event that we do not, here is a little excerpt from the Democrat National Platform that should give you a heads up as to what to expect shortly after Inauguration Day.

From the Democrat National Platform (.pdf page 48):

"We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, but we know that what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne. We can work together to enact and enforce commonsense laws and improvements -- like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system, and reinstating the assault weapons ban ..."
As you most likely know, "closing the gun show loophole" is anti speak for criminalizing the private sale or transfer of firearms. Their version of "improving the background check system" will place millions of Americans on the 'deny' list used by NICS. And finally, "reinstating the assault weapons ban". They are not interested in reinstating the assault weapons ban. Even they know that the AWB was a failure. It failed to control crime, and worse for them, it failed to disarm America. Nope, they are not going to reinstate the AWB, they are going to pass a new and improved AWB, an AWB similar to H.R. 1022.

H.R. 1022 is "To reauthorize the assault weapons ban, and for other purposes", it is sitting in the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, and it has 67 Cosponsors.

Go and read H.R. 1022, digest it and then consider that this may be the lite version of what they may push when they have a super-majority. H.R. 1022 has a sunset and a grandfather clause. I will bet you dimes for dollars that at least the sunset clause will be removed before this bill leaves the house floor.

Maybe H.R. 1022 will die in committee. If it does, the bill that replaces it will be much worse. A bill that would replace H.R. 1022 will contain all the elements of H.R. 1022, plus verbiage that would criminalize the private transfer of all firearms and possibly even a national firearm registry.

If Obama is elected, an Assault Weapon Ban will become law.

We can stop this!
