The Obama administration is preparing new, unconstitutional gun regulations in an attempt to disarm law-abiding American citizens. It’s obvious that Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda through executive force.
The Department of Justice, headed by newly appointed Loretta Lynch is working on new gun regulations to be implemented by the end of the year, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.
The Hill reports:
The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.
Gun safety advocates have been calling for such reforms since the Sandy Hook school shooting nearly three years ago in Newtown, Conn. They say keeping guns away from dangerous people is of primary importance.
The Justice Department plans to issue new rules expanding criteria for people who do not qualify for gun ownership, according to the recently released Unified Agenda, which is a list of rules that federal agencies are developing.
Some of the rules come in response to President Obama’s call to reduce gun violence in the wake of Sandy Hook. He issued 23 executive actions shortly after the shooting aimed at keeping guns away from dangerous people, and some of those items remain incomplete.
Michael Hammond, of Gun Owners of America‘s warned that the above reference to “criteria” would bar someone from owning a gun “who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband.”
“The Obama administration is trying very hard to disqualify people from owning a gun on the basis that they are seeing a psychologist,” he added.
The NRA takes the stance that many people who are mentally ill may not necessarily pose a danger to society, and gun rights advocates are arguing that it would be more effective to deny, and monitor people on an individual basis, as opposed to banning all people who are mentally ill.
“A person who experienced a temporary reaction to a traumatic event or who has trouble handling household finances may well be treated the same as a violent psychopath,” the NRA wrote.
“Not only is this unjust and stigmatizing, it creates disincentives for those who need mental health treatment to seek it, increasing whatever risks are associated with untreated mental illness,” it added.
Obama’s gun-control agenda has nothing to do with mentally ill people obtaining guns, or with stopping crime. Just look to Benghazi, and Fast & Furious for the facts pertaining to Obama’s gun policies, or should I say gun-running policies.
