Well, to anyone that was paying attention to who Barack Obama really was when he first ran for U.S. Senate, it was clear that he was a calculating socialist with a well-funded public-relations team. A look at the traitorous mob that he surrounded himself with (the Chicago Machine, Bill Ayers, etc.) cemented the impression that his true values were unAmerican to the core.
But he was an eager, brazen liar, and he employed many other liars (of various skill levels of lying), and he had the zealous unquestioning support of the liberal media behind him. And he coasted into office despite his lack of qualifications and many unanswered questions about his past.
Since taking office, he has put into motion a wide variety of schemes to undermine the traditional American way of life and traditional social values. Some were overt maneuvers; some were hidden. But all were calculated to adhere to his mentor Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
His assault on the Second Amendment is no different. Knowing that the NRA has considerable influence in the House and Senate, he instigated a multi-front assault on gun rights via indirect routes.
The Gunwalker/Fast & Furious scandals are one such attack. Send illegal guns into Mexico, so that he can then use the havoc they create as a pretext for additional federal gun laws. Thankfully the scheme was revealed before he could make his bogus case. Hyper-partisan Attorney General Eric CockHolder continues to obfuscate and lie about the scandal. But alert patriots derailed the scheme before Obama could capitalize on the mayhem he created.
His decision to poke his nose into the criminal assault on George Zimmerman was another move calculated to tip public opinion against the Second Amendment.
But some of the indirect moves he has made haven’t received as much press.
It’s a full court press, folks. Obama has no reason to moderate his behavior because he can’t run for re-election. He will keep trying to erode the Second Amendment as long as he is able to do so.
Vigilance, communication and action are the only ways to combat this assault on our liberty.
