Per my previous volumes on the subject of gun control, Obama and his Leftist ideologues are following the script. They continue to push an agenda for a total gun ban via incremental power grabs. In spite of all of the evidence that shows far greater problems are facing America, Obama and his band of idiots remain steadfast in their pursuit of disarming of the American people while ignoring real security problems like skyrocketing debt, unchecked immigration, and a world war about to break loose. Obama remains deaf and blind to the rule of law, Constitutional constraints, and the will of the people in his pursuit of tyrannical power. As I am sure you are aware, he is just getting started and has no plans to abate his attacks on your God given rights.
I won’t waste your time reviewing each individual lie and distortion Obama stated today in his “town hall” discussion on his upcoming executive orders. However, I would like to point out a few whoppers. First and foremost, Obama and Congress do not have the power to constrain or limit gun laws short of an amendment to the Constitution through a very specific process. The Second Amendment of the Constitution explicitly withheld this power from the government. In fact, it was intentionally included specifically so that Congress and the President could not “infringe” upon the right to keep and bear arms. Second, Obama has no legal standing to make laws respective of anything. As the head of the executive branch, he can enforce the laws enacted by Congress and no more. His “executive actions” go far beyond enforcing current law and are clearly in the realm of creating new law. Obama simply does not have the authority to create law via executive action and thus his dictates are unconstitutional. Respective of the already unconstitutional no fly list, which I have been critical of since its inception, Obama again has no authority to deny someone their rights without due process. This is very basic legal precedent that our Constitutional scholar, now President, apparently missed…no, ignored. If someone is suspected of being a terrorist or supporting terrorism, then show the probable cause, get a warrant, and arrest them. The notion a citizen can be secretly blacklisted and denied rights without due process for being a terrorist, but still is left on the street is far more dangerous than any mythical gunshow loophole.
Finally, I want to take an entire paragraph to address the constantly repeated propaganda line of “common sense gun laws.” The arrogance of this dictator knows no bounds. By declaring his dictates “common sense,” the thug sitting in the White House is in effect calling the vast majority of Americans that overwhelmingly support the Second Amendment and are against further gun control idiots. I have news for you Barry, the only people that thought gun control was “common sense” were dictators hell bent on subjugating and murdering millions of unarmed and defenseless people like Stalin, Mao, and Hitler. Based on your policy exploits in the Middle East and North Africa, many would argue you are not far behind your previous peers, yet I fear your worst is yet to come. You may indeed sit in the White House as a puppet of the establishment, but you will not be able to escape the inevitable brand by historians as the worst president to ever hold the office. Without any doubt, your “common sense” is wanting.

When does an act reach the bar for high treason? If not when powerful men conspire to abolish the Constitution and your basic God given rights, then when? I ask this question of all citizens because it is relevant in our time. No longer do the Washington elite even try to conceal their hatred of your rights and the lust for absolute power.
While America was enjoying Christmas with family and friends, one of the most egregious pieces of legislative tyranny was introduced to Congress. This was deliberately timed to pass without attention because the framers of this conspiracy know exactly the level of treason they are trying to commit. If we as Americans quietly accept this as mere politics, we are truly doomed to tyranny. The legislation proposed is absolutely nothing short of the government giving itself the power to abolish the Constitution along with your rights without regard for the amendment process and rule of law. Every sponsor of this bill should not only be recalled immediately from office, but placed in jail to await a trial on the charges of conspiracy and treason.
For reference, compare the language of the bill with the Second Amendment. Anyone with even basic intellect should immediately realize they are legally incompatible and the former is a direct attack and violation of the latter.
“To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.” H.R.4269 – Assault Weapons Ban of 2015
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment of the United States Constitution
For those of you that read LMS on a regular basis, you know that I have clearly laid out time and again the agenda to ban and confiscate your firearms. You can read many of these articles to include my three part series (Gun Confiscation Goes Mainstream: Tyranny in the Land of the “Free”) at http://www.lastminutesurvival.com/?s=gun+ban. What you will see is that I the government is following the script I forecasted would play out almost to the letter. This is very ominous. Based on the language and number of sponsors of the bill, it is conclusive evidence of a Washington conspiracy to not just limit, but outright ban and confiscate firearms in the United States.

Today, your efforts combined with a grassroots effort across Northern Virginia achieved a small victory. I want to give a special thanks to the The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) [http://www.vcdl.org/] and the observant citizens, which identified the subversive activities and went after Alexandria County government officials regarding the use of police for the door-to-door anti-gun flier campaign. The VCDL was issued a formal apology from the police chief and Alexandria police took down all flyers and signs posted at their police headquarters saying concealed firearms weren’t permitted and admitted they were wrong.

We live in a time where many citizens are being illegally deprived of their Second Amendment right. In cities like Chicago it is still nearly impossible for an average citizen to “legally” carry a firearm for self-defense. This situation becomes even more pronounced when traveling overseas in countries with total gun control. As such, the issue of how to protect yourself and your family against predatory thugs when disarmed is a situation we have all likely experienced and had to endure. This article does not seek to diminish the necessity of firearms, but does provide an expedient option that has proven time and again to be highly effective at deterring criminals.
A few months ago a veteran Special Forces operator and I were chatting about the degree to which the US had moved toward tyranny and a police state. We discussed strategies we had successfully employed when confronted with threats where we desired a firearm, but for one reason or another were unable to carry one. One tactic we employed domestically as well as overseas was carrying a policy style radio. At times the radio may have been even more effective than a firearm as its presence alone dispersed a crowd much larger (and likely armed) than someone armed would want to confront. To employ this tactic, one should consider carrying a Motorola style “police” handheld radio in a manner that looks covert enough to appear cop-like, but overt enough to be clearly seen by thugs. We both used this simple strategy very effectively.
In both our experiences, the moment the radio was seen by the circling predators, they immediately backed off and left the area. Criminals hate cops, but rarely look for a fight with a cop when they are not cornered. It is this perception of law enforcement that is so effective at deterring potential assailants. Further, the radio is generally not a restricted item that security will take from you or that you can be punished for possessing. As such, it can be carried concealed, overseas, and even through airport security. It is also an object that is recognized worldwide as associated with official government activities that the public generally would prefer not to be involved with. The effect can be amplified by purchasing and using the stereotypical “pigtail” earpiece often associated with Secret Service Agents. Finally, if the radio is actually functional, you can even use it to legitimately call for backup if in trouble. Employed properly, the criminal will generally pick another target and you live another day.
We are not suggesting that carrying a police style radio is going to stop all potential attacks and may not even be visible during low light conditions or at night. However, it certainly causes any potential assailant to hesitate and second guess whether or not to go through with their criminal act. It is within this window of opportunity created where you can effect escape, execute a defense, or potentially avert the attack completely. Further, when no firearms are available or allowed, it is one item that is available, but goes overlooked as potentially useful for deterrence. Also, the weight of the radio makes it suitable as an expedient bludgeon. Although new Motorola XTS 5000 style radios can be extremely expensive, plenty of very affordable Motorola radios such as the Motorola CP185 have the look and function you need for effective deterrence. Ultimately, you must evaluate your own personal defense plan, but in a pinch, this Last Minute Survival Tip is certainly one to consider.

VA Establishes Back Door to Disarm Veterans
In a “Quick reference Guide for Clinicians” obtained by LMS, the Veterans Administration guide instructs clinicians to question veterans on whether or not they have access to firearms. It then goes further and instructs clinician to restrict the patient’s access to those firearms using the police if necessary. In fairness to the VA, the guide is for potentially suicidal vets; however, the knowledge that gun confiscation may be a part of the treatment plan will scare off vets in need of and seeking help for a range of issues such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Further, in the event a clinician orders the veteran restricted from access to firearms (whether justifiably or note), this diagnosis will likely plague the veteran and bar any future purchase or possession of firearms. Once diagnosed, the veteran has few to no resources to undo the damage to their gun rights even if the suicidal tendencies were a temporary, treatable, or curable condition.
Even more chilling is how this practice can be expanded to other issues such as depression or other common symptoms of PTSD that often occur in many returning veterans, but typically subside on their own quickly. For many of those veterans in transition, the military urges and sometimes mandates psychological screening and treatment. Any positive diagnosis or even temporary treatment to include routine counseling could be used to justify a psychologically unstable or incompetent verdict being rendered against the veteran. Under state and federal firearms laws this could again, bar future purchase or possession of a firearm. Based on studies and threat warnings released by the Department of Homeland Security that have vilified gun owning veterans as terrorists and potential right-wing extremists, it is not a leap to suggest that the current Administration seeks to quietly disarm its returning veterans using this backdoor tactic of forcing treatment and then using the “documented” mental or psychological treatment to permanently disarm them. Not only would that remove probably the most capable armed segment in this society that this Administration has called potential “terrorists,” but could be done with government paid “experts” in very short order.
Our veterans deserve the very best in care, but what they do not deserve is to be stripped of their constitutional rights for their service. Veterans dealing with PTSD, which could at times include suicidal thoughts, neither want nor need to be labeled and blacklisted. They need to be treated and treated in a manner where they are free from legal recriminations that have ranged from biased custody judgements, denial of security clearances, and now even the very rights the fought to preserve! Please write your local VFW, Foreign Legion, and Congressional representatives and demand this policy be modified to ensure veterans are not banned from possessing firearms and that there is a clear and simple process to reverse cases already processed.
