Fitton: The ATF Is Still Hiding the Truth About Obama’s Anti-Gun Agenda

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 12, 2018

Simply put, the ATF refuses to comply with federal open records law. The ATF has withheld records for over three years concerning the Obama administration’s shady attempt to institute gun control by restricting ammunition instead of guns.

The Obama administration excelled at pushing its radical agenda through any means necessary. Since its gun-control agenda was not going anywhere, it decided to control ammunition, which would have had the same effect.

Everyone with an appreciation of the Second Amendment saw right through it.

Late last month, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a component of the Department of Justice, for 1,900 pages of records about a proposed reclassification that would effectively ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition as armor-piercing (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02218)).

We sued after the agency failed to respond to our May 14, 2018, FOIA request for the 1,900 documents about the Obama administration’s AR-15 ammo ban efforts. The documents include ATF talking points about the “Armor Piercing Ammunition Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” and other records discussing ammunition classification.

This lawsuit is the latest development in our more than three-year effort to obtain documents from the ATF. Judicial Watch discovered the document cache in separate litigation on the ammo ban issue.

Here’s some background:

Gun Owners Should Fear the Deep State – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 13, 2018

Unfortunately, the deep state could increasingly focus on gun owners in the coming years. The number of Americans who are violating firearm laws and regulations is increasing by tens or hundreds of thousands almost every year. This is not the result of a violent crime wave, but because politicians are continually criminalizing the possession of items that were previously legally owned.

Five years ago, the Connecticut legislature decreed that all owners of so-called “assault weapons” (which included any semi-automatic rifle with a pistol grip) must register their firearms. Perhaps as few as 15 percent of gun owners bothered to comply with the new law—meaning that Connecticut had up to 100,000 “criminals” living within its border. A 2016 Albany Times Union editorial lamented that 96 percent of roughly 1 million New Yorkers who owned so-called “assault weapons” failed to comply with registration requirements. California gun bans have been met with similar, massive non-compliance. Undeterred, local governments have begun jumping on the bandwagon. Deerfield, Ill., recently decreed a $1,000-a-day penalty on anyone who fails to surrender or disable their semi-automatic firearms with cosmetic features that frighten politicians and editorial writers… Read the rest of this entry »

The US Has Devolved into a Police State – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. Fox on January 11, 2018

No one is getting this. Police worship by the sheeple is as strong as ever. The sheeple are dragging us down.

You try to imagine how you would react in a survival situation. I imagine my thought would be – who will hurt me more, the criminal or cops and courts.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/01/10/us-devolved-police-state/

Yesterday I posted at this URL — https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/01/09/democracy-america-oxymoron/ — a news report and two videos of a white female school teacher being removed and brutalized by a black police officer from a public meeting of school teachers with the school board while the school teacher was engaged according to the rules in normal conversation with a school board member.

The school board is comprised of both genders and both races. (Yes, I know that today we have more than two genders and there are more than two races.) Obviously, the school teacher was removed at the order of the school board or some member of it…

The meeting was about the school board’s approval of a raise in salary for a school board member equal to the annual pay of school teachers, while the teachers themselves received not one cent.

The white female teacher assaulted by the black cop wanted to know why resources needed in the classroom, where class size had increased by about one third, were instead going to school board members who really did not do anything except collect high salaries.

This is a fair and honest question, but it was one the school board did not want to hear. So the school board had the uncle Tom black cop brutalize and arrest the white female school teacher.

As I said, this is America today.

The same thing is going on everywhere…

There are many things to be learned from this school board meeting atrocity. First, it is not just white cops who assault black people. Cops, whether black or white or rainbow in color assault the general public, white, black, brown, the young, the elderly, cripples in wheel chairs, the family dog. The cops, irrespective of race brutalize the public. There is no race safety. The police are a brutal force whose only function is to suppress all dissent against the bosses. All lives matter, not just black lives. The police actually kill more white people than they kill black people.

The police are the enforcers of the thievery practiced by the One Percent. The main function of the police in America is to suppress the citizens. That is what the black uncle Tom cop is doing at the school board meeting…

Once Americans give up their right of self-defense, they are toast. My advice to every American citizen is: when you see the Second Amendment going down get out of the country as fast as you can.

Be seeing you

Separating the Mundane’s From Their Guns-Nice Try- The Real Issues Are Hidden

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 20, 2013

An Erie Times letter writer’s attempt to separate the Mundane’s from their guns, via Article 1 of the Constitution is a nice try but I believe flawed.

We must start with the idea that many founder’s did not want a standing army.  They feared it would be used against the citizenry.  They may have had some foresight.  The government’s (armed) drone surveillance, DHS ammunition stockpiling and FEMA camp construction end game has yet to be played out.  The founders also leaned toward a weak central government per the (preferred by some) Articles of Confederation.  The vision was no standing armies, just civilians available when called upon to repel foreign invasion, put down domestic insurrection and rogue governmental tyranny. The nation’s defense against enemies without and within was the various state militias. Read the rest of this entry »

Second Amendment How and Why. What Can Happen When the Citizenry Is Made Vulnerable.

Posted by M. C. Fox on December 26, 2012

Most do not appreciate that the second the Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting nor protection in the street mugger context.  It is about protecting one’s self from malevolent government.  We are living in a time of government reading all communications, TSA searches on planes and trains and beginning in 2003 the start of domestic government use of drones for spying on anyone.  Going to a rally or protest?  Assume you are being watched and biometrically scanned.  Combine that with the government’s successful efforts in destroying our economy, but not that of their bankster buddies and it is no wonder there are those that feel they must gather protection from the government.  We common folk certainly can’t expect to attack and win against the military/militarized police.  Hopefully the current regime will collapse from its own folly as did the Soviet Union but without the widespread suffering.  We must be capable of  defending against the mobs that will ensue as a result of government generated economic and social collapse.

Here is an excellent summary of second amendment how and why.  Here is what can happen when the citizenry is disarmed. Read the rest of this entry »

More on the Subject of Gun Control and Liars, take President Obama and Pathological Hillary…Please

Posted by M. C. Fox on December 27, 2011

More about Obama’s anti-gun agenda.  He is getting help from that bastion of truth Hillary Clinton.  You remember Hillary, who as first Lady told the story of allowed to land in a helicopter in a free fire zone and had to dodge bullets on her way to safety.  I hate to point out mores lies but what can you do when talking about Obama and Hillary?  It just comes naturally.
