    All H is Breaking Loose!

    All Heck is Breaking Loose! - Gun Owners of America

    “The real agenda of the gun-hating Obama administration is to strip gun rights from law-abiding Americans ....” -- GOA’s Legislative Counsel Michael Hammond, The Washington Times (1/7/14)

    Four issues in which you have been heavily involved have come or are coming to a head this week.

    We are putting out this emergency alert to keep you apprised of the fast-moving legislative landscape.

    HHS REGULATIONS: See a Shrink, Lose your Guns

    GOA's campaign against Obama's war on individual privacy is beginning to really catch fire. Our article in The Washington Times is being widely circulated by other pro-gun groups and can be read here.

    And, although we will probably not have a vehicle for defunding this Executive Action -- until the individual appropriations bills begin to move in May -- we are optimistic that a majority of senators and House members will oppose this effort to partially repeal federal privacy laws, called HIPAA.

    As you probably know, the proposed regulations would repeal HIPAA insofar as necessary to allow psychiatrists to turn their patients into the FBI's NICS list -- all as a result of personal information, communicated in private.

    This would massively expand the ability of the federal government to impose federal gun bans on otherwise law-abiding Americans.

    Or as we at GOA have said: These regulations would result in a situation where if you “see a shrink, you lose your guns." But now a wide variety of others are beginning to take notice.

    Go here to read the comments that GOA submitted to HHS in opposition to their recent, anti-gun regulations.

    And go here to submit your own comments on or before March 10, 2014.

    THE UN ARMS TRADE TREATY

    For a year now, we have told you that we easily have the 34 votes necessary to defeat ratification of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. That treaty would set the stage for far-ranging gun and magazine bans, gun registration, and gun microstamping requirements.

    We have told you that the next task would be to pass an appropriations bill amendment which would defund any Obama effort to implement the ATT by executive fiat. And we have drafted such an amendment and made it available to Congress.

    That amendment to defund the UN ATT is about to happen.

    Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) has announced that he has amended the must-pass omnibus appropriations bill to ban funding for the implementation of the ATT.

    That big appropriations bill has pluses and minuses, and it probably is not the bill we would have drafted. But the win on the Arms Trade Treaty is huge.

    ANTI-GUN JUDGES

    We have told you that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's corrupt and fraudulent invocation of the "nuclear option" had the potential for packing the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, with anti-gun judges.

    On Monday, Senator Reid used this corrupt procedure to force the confirmation of Robert Wilkins to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. You can see how your Senators voted here. (The NAY vote is the pro-gun vote.)

    As a district court judge, Wilkins has held that an American living in Canada could constitutionally be stripped by the 1968 Gun Control Act of the right to purchase any firearm in the United States. In other words, according to Wilkins, the Second Amendment does not guarantee Americans the right to purchase or acquire a firearm.

    ANTI-GUN OBAMACARE MANDATE

    Senate Republicans have thus far followed a strategy which GOA has publicly pushed -- which would insist on votes to defund ObamaCare as a condition of moving Democratic priorities such as the unemployment bill.

    Thus far, the strategy has worked pretty well.

    The Senate has been tied in knots for the past week, unable to move Barack Obama's liberal legislative agenda. This, despite the fact that Harry Reid could remove the roadblock at any time by simply allowing the Senate to vote on ObamaCare. We've been particularly eager to get votes on two amendments: (1) whether to delay the unpopular anti-gun ObamaCare mandate; and (2) whether to defund a bailout of insurance companies totaling tens of billions of dollars. Either of these amendments, if adopted, would effectively bring an end to the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate.

    As you know, the ObamaCare program sets the stage for compiling a national health database which could be trolled by the FBI and could strip tens of millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights.

    ACTION: Click here to contact your Senators. Ask them to continue objecting to any Unanimous Consent request which would allow Obama's unemployment bill (S. 1845) to be passed, unless Senators are granted the right to vote on the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate.

    And next King Oblammer will just sign a edict allowing funding again, just like he did with the CDC junk science "studies" a few months ago.

    Comments submitted.

    I'm so sick of this...
    round and round, we vote no.
    change a word - resubmit, we vote no.
    then try again, we vote no.
    through the backdoor...


    Its complete BS that our "representatives" are being allowed to get away with this. When do we finally start recalling these monkeys?

    Merkley and Wyden both voted for see a shrink, lose a gun. They both voted for a federal judge known as a gun confiscation judge.
    Merkey is up for re-election and is not very popular in the polls.
    So now is the time to convince neighbors and relatives to vote him out of office.

    Want to bet that when Obama leaves office he is going to be signing a lot of papers that will affect us (law abiding citizens) for very long time. Not just the typical pardons and releases, but MAJOR issues....

    Hang on folks. November is right around the corner.....

    it's been said before and I will say it again they're giving the 2nd amendment a death of 1000 cuts. They are tenacious in their efforts against the 2A and care little about anything else!!!!!

    I've been writing the NRA for years telling them they need to get more involved in more than just 2nd Amend things since they're coming at us from all sides with presidential edicts and new rules/laws. They don't seem to care about the "little stuff".

    No need to repeal HIPAA, just go to SSI and see who is on the dole for being mentally ill.

    and


    There are many many more issues affecting us and our ability to fight. So many back door laws are being pushed and no one notices. Some may not be "Directly related to "Guns, but by god they beat the hell out of us and some are designed to divert or redirect our means to fight the important bills. The contribution laws, the laws pertainingg to sending out information to members only. The increase in taxes that take money away from people that could have used some of them to fight for our rights. The increase in laws that are making damned near everything either a felony or a psychiatric, or some other issue that enables them take away gun rights from citizens. All laws are relevant and all of Obumbelers EO's are relevant and have a direct effect on guns and gun ownership somewhere down the pike.

    We have to know about all that the Marxist representatives that occupy DC, lays on us.

    We have to fight it all tooth and nail and the only way to do that is educate yourself on everything they do behind closed doors, not just what the mainstream wants to tell you. DIG and DIG deep, learn and be alert and let people know.

    Just in Oregon there are about 2K proposed bills in the Senate and another 2K bills in the house waiting to get heard, and we won't hear about any of them unless we dig for them and expose them.
    Also it will give us some ammo to expose on these leftists and get them replaced in Nov.
