ObamaCare’s Anti-gun Bias Becomes More and More Apparent
But Rubio proposal could serve as a poison pill


    “Congress is moving closer to [passing] a bill which would require virtually every single American to buy government-approved health insurance, whether they wanted it or not. And, in the process, that bill would feed all of your most confidential medical data into an enormous database, which could be used to take away your guns.” -- GOA Alert, April 2009

Five years ago, during the spring of 2009, GOA told its members that a major priority of Barack Obama's health care reform agenda was to take away your guns.

This was three months before other groups and media outlets came out in opposition of what became known as “ObamaCare.” At the time, Republican Senators like Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch were working hard to solidify a bipartisan consensus which would take the issue of “health care reform” off the table.

Conservative pollsters were saying that opposition to health care reform would destroy the Republican Party.

At the time, GOA said that Obama's health care reform would allow the ATF to troll a federal health database for tens of millions of people -- individuals suffering from maladies like PTSD, ADHD or post-partum depression -- and to send those names to the FBI’s NICS system.

Spring forward to January, 2013, when President Obama published an Executive Action concerning language that was inserted into ObamaCare in a futile effort to appease GOA. Obama’s Executive Action overturned a clear protection for gun owners and declared that doctors are not prohibited from asking about guns and entering that information in a federal database.

Then in January of this year, the Department of Health and Human Services floated regulations which would waive federal privacy laws to allow these gun owners’ names to be submitted to the NICS system.

At the same time, states like New York are turning in the names of New Yorkers, for no other reason that their psychiatrists have given them prescriptions for anxiety medication. Even in pro-gun states like New Hampshire, there are pro-gun groups that (in an effort to compromise) are pushing legislation to send the names of many gun owners who have visited psychiatrists to NICS -- thus, imposing gun bans on a lot more people.

The anti-gun Left is pulling out the stops to save ObamaCare, because this law helps fund much of their socialistic agenda -- including the culling of gun owners’ names. But if ObamaCare isn't destroyed, the Second Amendment will be in grave jeopardy.

Realizing this, Senator Marco Rubio has crafted a legislative proposal (S. 1726) which would repeal Obama's ability to spend $1 trillion to buy off “millionaires and billionaires” at wealthy insurance companies.

Sen. Rubio is trying to repeal this bailout since its only purpose is to keep the anti-gun ObamaCare law afloat through the 2014 elections.

The quickest way to put a stake through the heart of this ObamaCare vampire is to pass the Rubio proposal. Once insurance companies are no longer engaged in a conspiracy of silence on behalf of ObamaCare -- because they realize Obama will no longer pay them $1 trillion of “hush money” -- ObamaCare collapses.

ACTION: Click Here to Contact your Senators. Ask them to cosponsor Senator Rubio's S. 1726 -- a bill that will help the anti-gun ObamaCare law to implode by repealing the bailout of millionaires and billionaires in the insurance companies.

this is for those of you who whine and bitch when Kilogulf sends you emails giving you a heads up about what Uncle Sam is doing to your rights:
No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
― Samuel Adams
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

i better call Ted's office.... well done.Ken! keep'em coming!

Vote "support" or "oppose"

If you aren't signed up with POPVOX you should be https://www.popvox.com/ They're covering everything in congress, not just the 2A and they're non-partisan so know what you're voting on. Just because 99% voted for a bill doesn't mean it what you want. They could all be redder than Stalin...if you don't know, pass on it and ask us...

The Next Big Gun Fight:
Stopping 8 Million New Anti-gun Voters


    “[A] Pew poll suggests that illegal immigrants, if given citizenship, would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.” - GOA’s Erich Pratt, commenting on Pew poll findings as reported in The Washington Post (7/22/13)

Next Wednesday, the House Republican leadership will announce a set of "principles" for immigration reform. Supposedly, if these "principles" are not well-received, the House will shelve the issue for the remainder of the year.

To be blunt: The health of the Second Amendment relies on demolishing these "principles."

Immigration reform will add over 8,000,000 anti-gun voters to the voting rolls. There may be as many as 11.5 million persons illegally in the United States. And, a Pew poll from last year indicated that if illegal immigrants were given citizenship, they would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.

This is exactly what happened to California -- which was once a Red State. Because of the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill of 1986, the state lurched violently to the left and now can’t pass gun control restrictions fast enough.

If this were to happen at the national level, we would lose the ability to stop massive gun bans and gun registration schemes. And all of this occurs at a time when a Fox poll shows the American people oppose Obama’s immigration policies by a margin of 36% to 54%.

The first reality is this: If the House passes ANYTHING, the Senate will tack on its amnesty bill and send it to conference. And the national conversation will turn off of ObamaCare and onto immigration.

And guess what? Every gun-hating institution which moved heaven and earth to pass gun control will move heaven and earth to get the House to retreat -- if not to a "pathway to citizenship," to a "pathway to legalization."

They will have created the biggest and most motivated Obama-loving movement in the country -- devoted to electing anti-gun politicians and retaining Harry Reid's control of the Senate.

What will Republicans get, in exchange for creating an army of pro-Obama election warriors?

Very little. (Be sure to read GOA legislative counsel Michael Hammond’s analysis, which shows, in great detail, how the Republican leadership’s “principles” will end up back-firing on gun owners http://www.gunowners.org/alert1242013.htm.)

The bottom line is that there is a reason why Barack Obama and his "puppet press" have been campaigning for a year to force the Republican House to wade into "immigration reform." It is nothing but benefits for anti-gun politicians, and nothing but pain for pro-gun legislators.

Who would be stupid enough to inflict that level of pain on themselves?

ACTION: Contact your Representative here http://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app/write-a-letter?2&engagementId=38552&lp=0. If he is a Republican, the pre-written letter will ask him to reject the ridiculous "immigration principles" being hawked by the leadership -- principles that will eventually destroy the pro-gun movement in America. The pre-written letter for Democrats is a generic opposition letter.

ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE: Remember that clicking on the first “submit” button on the GOA Engage site (where you input your name and address), only submits your information so that your correct legislators can be identified. Hence, the first “submit” button does not actually send your letter. Instead, it brings you to the next page where you can actually review the pre-written letter. The second “submit” button actually sends the letter.

Gun Owners of America
Senator Rand Paul to Offer Amendment Allowing Guns in Post Offices

Have you ever wondered why you can't pull your pickup truck into the parking lot of the Gillette, Wyoming, post office, go in, and mail a letter -- without giving up your Second Amendment rights?

The answer is that a bunch of gun-hating legislators -- who are terrified of the very thought of guns -- slammed through a law prohibiting guns in any federal facility. It is now contained at 18 U.S.C. 930.

The original law contained a provision, at subsection (d)(3), which would allow you to carry your gun for "other lawful purposes" -- including, presumably, self-defense.

But, not surprisingly, the ATF and the other anti-gun denizens of the federal government have read this exception out of the law -- by executive fiat.

But the good news is this: On Wednesday, January 29, Senator Rand Paul will offer an amendment, in committee, to the Postal Reform Act (S. 1486).

The amendment will allow you to drive into a post office parking lot with your gun, and will allow you to carry it into the post office, to the extent state law would allow you to carry that firearm in any other venue.

Because the amendment will be offered in Governmental Affairs, a vast percentage of the committee membership consists of conservative Republicans and Democrats running for reelection in conservative states. So there is a good chance that we can score a major victory for the Second Amendment if you act now.

ACTION: Please contact the senators on the committee (listed below) and ask them to support the Rand Paul amendment allowing Americans to exercise their constitutional rights in parking lots and public areas in federal post offices.

You can E-mail the Senators http://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app/write-a-letter?10&engagementId=38577&lp=0 -- or call them at 202-224-3121.


NOTE: You are receiving this alert because one of your Senators is on the Government Affairs committee. Residents of Kentucky should simply thank Senator Rand Paul for taking the leadership on this issue. (See below.)

MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
    Democrats: Tom Carper, DE; Carl Levin, MI; Mark Pryor, AR; Mary Landrieu, LA; Claire McCaskill, MO; Jon Tester, MT; Mark Begich, AK; Tammy Baldwin, WI; and Heidi Heitkamp, ND.

    Republicans: Tom Coburn, OK; John McCain, AZ; Ron Johnson, WI; Rob Portman, OH; Rand Paul, KY; Mike Enzi, WY; and Kelly Ayotte, NH.

Boehner Working with Obama to Ambush House Republicans on Bloomberg-backed Immigration Changes


    “Democrat control of Congress bodes well for oppressive gun laws, [and] a huge influx of newly legal voters from cultures where draconian government control over private firearm ownership is an unquestioned matter [helps]. Bloomberg can hardly be unaware of that.” -- The Examiner, January 29, 2014

The good thing about anti-gun liberals in Washington is that they are pathologically incapable of keeping their mouths shut.

And, Wednesday morning, shortly before 9:00, MSNBC commentator Dick Gregory announced that House Speaker John Boehner, the day before, had told a private meeting of reporters that he had been talking with Barack Obama "a lot" about pushing immigration reform.

It's pretty clear why Barack Obama wants a bill which would either legalize or grant citizenship to as many as 11.5 million people who, according to Latinos expressing their opinions in a Pew poll, would cast 88% of their votes for liberals like Barack Obama.

It's also clear what Speaker Boehner has in mind: If he sabotages his own party, the liberal media will throw him a "doggie treat."

But, for other House Republicans, the advantage of having an Obama/Boehner knife in their back is a little less clear.

A note on why gun owners have "skin" in the immigration game: By turning a net 8,000,000 people into an "Obama army," even "legalization" without immediate citizenship would fundamentally change electoral politics for the 2014 elections.

This is why, along with gun control, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made immigration "reform" his central priority.

The anti-gun Bloomberg knows that "legalization" of persons unlawfully in the U.S. will create an "Obama army" which will transform the 2014 elections and achieve the almost impossible task of delivering the House and the Senate to the party of gun control.

With Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in power in 2015, the "Obama army" will then get their "citizenship" reward -- and gun control will advance.

This “Obama army” has already made several appearances:

Remember how, in November, children of illegals ambushed House Speaker John Boehner in a local diner over breakfast? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRPDZDpNaBg

Remember how a mob of pro-amnesty spectators turned the U.S. Senate into a pep rally last June by chanting Obama's campaign slogan, "Yes we can," from the Senate gallery? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAblqhLV8FY

Remember how Bloomberg orchestrated out-of-state agitators who descended on the town hall meetings of Senators like Kelly Ayotte and Jeff Flake in order to demand gun control last Spring? http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/30/17988465-gun-vote-stirs-passion-at-ayotte-town-hall-meetings?lite

Multiply this by a million, and you will understand the ramifications of giving Obama an anti-gun army, going into the 2014 elections.

ACTION: Contact your Congressman http://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app/write-a-letter?2&engagementId=38944&lp=0. Tell him to stand up to House Speaker John Boehner at this weekend's "retreat" and to oppose the creation of an "Obama army." There are separate letters for Republican and Democrat Congressmen. Based on your zip code, the correct letter will be automatically selected.
