GOA: OPPOSE JOE MANCHIN'S VETERANS GUN BAN AND NATIONAL GUN REGISTRY
OUR VETERANS AND WE, THE LAW ABIDING AMERICAN PUBLIC, WHO FOLLOW THE RULES AND THE RULEBOOK (THE US CONSTITUTION), EXPECT MORE OF OUR GOVERNMENT THAN THIS. THIS IS CRIMINAL. IT IS IMPEACHABLE. IT IS A HIGH CRIME OF TREASON.
Gun Owners of America
Oppose Joe Manchin’s Veterans Gun Ban
and National Gun Registry
Reports out of Capitol Hill reveal that just-reelected turncoat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is about to stick a big
knife in the back of American gun owners. And to make matters worse, he's lying about what he’s doing.
Both Manchin and House anti-gun crazy Carolyn McCarthy are claiming to
be “working with NRA” to enact gun bans and national gun registries. NRA says flatly that Manchin is lying, and we believe he is. (The Hill, 1/24/13)
Ironically, Manchin was the “gun owner's best friend” on November 5 -- the day before his reelection to a six-year term let him
to pull a great big “gotcha” on those West Virginians who were tricked into believing his representations.
But make no mistake about it: Joe Manchin’s
draft would impose a gun ban on veterans and would set up the framework for a national gun registry.
150,000 honest law-abiding veterans are currently in the NICS system.
They didn’t do anything wrong; they honorably served their country. But
when they sought VA counseling for a traumatic combat experience, the
VA appointed a fiduciary to oversee their fiscal affairs and then took
away their guns. And, again, there are 150,000 honest veterans in the
New York Senator Charles Schumer viciously fought a
Coburn amendment on the DoD bill which would require that veterans get
their day in court before their rights were taken away from them, and he
What the Manchin bill is about is insuring that “bad guys” like
veterans can’t get guns. And, under Barack Obama's
“Executive Action #1,” the NICS list could soon include tens of millions of additional soldiers, police, firemen, and other law-abiding Americans.
But veteran disarmament is not the only problem with Joe Manchin’s gun ban.
Manchin's bill would set the framework for a national gun registry and
impose a chokehold on gun sales. There are at least four big reasons
FIRST: Every gun owner in the country would have a
“Form 4473.” Increasingly, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms
& Explosives are going into gun dealerships and illegally copying
all of those 4473's.
SECOND: The FBI refuses to tell us how or whether it's complying with federal law by destroying the Brady Check names,
rather than keeping them for a national gun registry.
As it is, the Brady Check system is breaking down on days such as last
year’s Black Friday -- outlawing
all gun purchases. If you have to drive 200 miles from your farm to
sell your gun to your neighbor, this effectively outlaws any efforts to
sell or buy a gun.
FOURTH: Increasingly, the FBI is blocking
transfers because someone’s name is “similar” to someone else. When the
legal purchaser complains, the FBI's response is “Sue us!”
