January 8th, 2015
With the week of January 3rd 2016 being somewhat of a ‘hot news week’, primarily because of the Obama executive actions, there is a lot of information and opinion available. Predictably much revolves around the further “chip-chip-chip” against the Second Amendment.
To help keep you in touch better we will share a few links that are felt to be not only relevant but, give views and details you should see in order to be better informed, essentially revolving around the week’s events.
“Loretta Lynch warns gun owners: We’re watching you” – U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch issued what Second Amendment supporters likely see as a dark warning about the White House’s expected executive order on guns, telling a group of reporters the federal government would be actively searching out those firearms’ owners who want to sidestep registration.
It seems we still have a gun-hating AG even now – no surprises there.
“Liberal Media Pave Way for Obama’s Anti-Gun Rights Action” – Barack Obama’s announcement of new gun regulations has already been met with cheers by the anti-gun rights activists in the liberal media.
As so sadly predictable, the mainly leftist and anti-gun media just laps up this sort of news – they are no friends to gun owners.
“Under Gun Rules, F.B.I. Will Receive Health Data” – Responding to Republicans who have repeatedly tied gun violence to mental health issues, President Obama’s new gun control plan will allow state agencies and the Social Security Administration to provide certain “protected health information” to the F.B.I. to help crack down on weapons sales to people who pose a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs.
This superficially sounds an acceptable move, until you see not only the potential for abuse but also the invasion into people’s medical history.
(Late addition) – “Are Obama’s New Actions on Gun Sales ‘Legally Meaningless‘?”
Lawyer, Case Western University School of Law Professor Jonathan H. Adler, wrote on the Washington Post’s The Volokh Conspiracy Opinion blog, Jan. 5th, that President Obama’s recently announced executive actions will likely have no effect on gun laws.
