With the hoo-hah now dying down over the Presidents gun control announcement,it may be opportune to State some facts that may have been lost in the spin.
Firstly the President has ZERO chance of getting an assault weapons ban or a magazine limit through congress. He has admitted as such and his biggest Senate supporter ,Senate Majority Leader has stated it is unlikely to pass the Senate.
As to the Executive orders ,I have downloaded and studied them.None will adversely affect you right to own guns. They deal with enforcement of existing laws, easing co-operation between agencies on background checks and providing funds for gun education programs,
Obviously the devil is in the detail.especially if its Obama we are discussing, but the US Constitution puts a block on any attempts to grab power.
The most effective counter to him and all who are trying to undermine the 2nd Amendment is the NRA. Since January its membership has increased by 250,000 members, and they are recruiting at approx 8000 per day.
Many members of Congress are NRA members with high ratings (Harry Reid has an A).
This helps them get elected. If only half of the 100.000,000 (one hundred million) gun owners here were NRA members the whole gun control issue would vaporize overnight. The left know this ,which is why the constantly attack the organization .
