Oppose Joe Manchin’s Veterans Gun Ban and National Gun Registry

gunowners of americaGun Owners of America

Reports out of Capitol Hill reveal that just-reelected turncoat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is about to stick a big knife in the back of American gun owners.  And to make matters worse, he’s lying about what he’s doing.

Both Manchin and House anti-gun crazy Carolyn McCarthy are claiming to be “working with NRA” to enact gun bans and national gun registries.  NRA says flatly that Manchin is lying, and we believe he is. (The Hill, 1/24/13)

Ironically, Manchin was the “gun owner’s best friend” on November 5 — the day before his reelection to a six-year term let him to pull a great big “gotcha” on those West Virginians who were tricked into believing his representations.

But make no mistake about it:  Joe Manchin’s draft would impose a gun ban on veterans and would set up the framework for a national gun registry.

150,000 honest law-abiding veterans are currently in the NICS system.  They didn’t do anything wrong; they honorably served their country.  But when they sought VA counseling for a traumatic combat experience, the VA appointed a fiduciary to oversee their fiscal affairs and then took away their guns.  And, again, there are 150,000 honest veterans in the system.

New York Senator Charles Schumer viciously fought a Coburn amendment on the DoD bill which would require that veterans get their day in court before their rights were taken away from them, and he won.

What the Manchin bill is about is insuring that “bad guys” like veterans can’t get guns.  And, under Barack Obama’s “Executive Action #1,” the NICS list could soon include tens of millions of additional soldiers, police, firemen, and other law-abiding Americans.

But veteran disarmament is not the only problem with Joe Manchin’s gun ban.

Manchin’s bill would set the framework for a national gun registry and impose a chokehold on gun sales.  There are at least four big reasons for this:

FIRST:  Every gun owner in the country would have a “Form 4473.”  Increasingly, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives are going into gun dealerships and illegally copying all of those 4473’s.

SECOND:  The FBI refuses to tell us how or whether it’s complying with federal law by destroying the Brady Check names, rather than keeping them for a national gun registry.

THIRD:  As it is, the Brady Check system is breaking down on days such as last year’s Black Friday — outlawing all gun purchases.  If you have to drive 200 miles from your farm to sell your gun to your neighbor, this effectively outlaws any efforts to sell or buy a gun.

FOURTH:  Increasingly, the FBI is blocking transfers because someone’s name is “similar” to someone else.  When the legal purchaser complains, the FBI’s response is “Sue us!”

  1. Obama has been photographed firing a shotgun. Obama’s repeated use of ILLEGAL drugs has been well documented, by Obama himself as I understand. Go read question -e.- on that 4473. Why is Obama allowed to hand;le any firearm? Obama says everyone must be background checked but his own background of drug use precludes him from handling a firearm ………

  2. The government screws veterans up in unjustified, undeclared, unconstitutional wars in distant lands where they are ordered to violate Geneva Convention Accords and then when they seek help with psychological problems have their constitutional rights abrogated.

    The public is constantly surfeited with exhortations to honor the veterans but Uncle Sam sets a putrid example. The time is coming when the honorable thing to do will be to stand down and refuse illegal orders.

  3. Forget all their silly new laws. We have all the guns we need right now. Just keep ’em ready, keep ’em hidden, and never register any of them with anybody. Things are likely to come to a head before any of these bills makes it through congress anyway.

  4. Violating the U.S Constitution by not honoring your oath to preserve, defend and protect the U.S Constiution by a elected official is treason.
    West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, are commiting treason?
