The War On Terror Was Always A War On You

First the government passed the veterans disarmament act, which placed any veteran who has ever been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on a federal gun ban list. Congress passed this criminal legislation in the middle of the night and after Bush signed it into law he fled to Israel.

"It was December 19, 2007. Most Congressmen had left town and were either at the airport or in the air returning home. They weren't in Washington, DC, because their party leadership had told them that all the major votes were over... that the only legislative business left related to non-controversial issues, such as when Congress would return from Christmas break, etc.
But it was then, with most of the Congress gone, that the House and Senate passed the Veterans Disarmament Act without a recorded vote."

Then last year a contrived ammunition shortage hit. Slowly the shelves went bare. Now if you can find any supply in most common calibers, it's prohibitively expensive.

Last month some senators introduced a bill to "close the nation’s gun show loophole.” This will have nothing to do with fighting crime but everything to do with making sure the government knows what you buy and sell.

Now this week:
Proposed Law Allows AG Holder to Block Gun Sales to Over a Million Americans

"New Jersey Democrat senator Frank R. Lautenberg plans to introduce legislation designed to cancel the Second Amend rights of well over a million U.S. citizens this coming week, according to the New York Times. “Mr. Lautenberg plans to introduce legislation on Monday that would give the attorney general the discretion to block gun sales to people on terror watch lists,” the newspaper reports."
"The Inspector General of the Justice Department reported that the Terrorist Screening Center — the FBI-administered organization that consolidates terrorist watch list information in the United States — had over 700,000 names in its database as of April 2007 and that the list was growing by an average of over 20,000 records per month, according to the ACLU. In March of this year the list hit the one million mark, a 32% increase from 2007.
The actual number may far exceed one million entries. The FBI says the number of names on its terrorist watch list is classified. In addition to the National Counterterrorism Center watch list, the FBI keeps a list of persons said to be domestic terrorists, according to
ABC News."

This bill will deny the second amendment to officially designated enemies of the state. Not foreigners, not muslims, not terrorists. You.
