Gun control, and control of free speech would be combined in a new Obama administration plan that could send Second Amendment advocates to prison.
As incredible as it seems, and just as impossible to believe, individuals would be in violation by “merely posting information on the Internet about common firearms” which “could be interpreted as illegally sharing sensitive information with foreign nationals.”
The Washington Times reported that applying issues related to “exporting” and “foreign nations” under an international treaty to individual on-line speech (under the guise of improperly sharing technical data about firearms) may seem like a stretch, but it is apparently what is happening, unless public opposition is voiced before this oh-so quiet regulation sets in towards the end of summer.
Under the new proposal from the State Department, merely posting information on the Internet about common firearms could be interpreted as illegally sharing sensitive information with foreign nationals. So Mr. Obama’s plan is two-for-one in restricting constitutional rights: He would combine gun control with control over free speech.
And the penalty for violating this policy could be drastic if upheld: 20 years in prison plus a $1 million fine for each violation. Each time that any foreign national accesses the data is considered a separate violation.
All is not lost, Second Amendment advocates are riding a wave of support. Recent gun-control efforts backfired. School shootings and strident press coverage solidified public opinion as people became more aware of the need for self-defense. According to Pew Research, the public now agrees by 52 percent to 46 percent that gun rights are more important than gun control.
