Tag: Government wants to disarm law abiding citizens

Team Blue to Americans: Fuck the 2nd Ammendment!

With the SCOTUS shooting down this administrations attempts to run roughshod over the 2nd amendment and operation “Fast & Furious”, intended to create a crisis they hoped would sway public opinion in the direction that would allow them to disarm the sheep and thus better control them, having backfired on them, you would think they would give it up. Not a chance in hell. The leftists want to make sure the people can’t defend themselves from their deprivations, and thus, they are at it again:

Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales.

Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories.

“This administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent ‘reputational risk’ to do business with,” said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP. “So financial institutions are reacting to this extraordinary enforcement arsenal by being ultra-conservative in who they do business with: Any companies that engage in any margin of risk as defined by this administration are being dropped.”

A Justice Department representative said the agency is conducting several investigations that aim to hold accountable banks “who are knowingly assisting fraudulent merchants who harm consumers.”

And any organization that they don’t control is basically engaging in what the left feels is fraudulent behavior. These fuckers fear an armed population because they know that sooner than later the people will have had enough of their abuses, and then it might get ugly. If they disarm the sheep they have a better chance of resisting/suppressing the peasant’s revolt, or even surviving it. This government is hostile to freedom and will go to any length to disarm the people they see as the enemy. That the enemy is primarily comprised of law abiding, tax paying, hardworking citizens, getting fed up with the chicanery and abuses by our oligarchy, is a sad state of affairs.

These marxists are using the financial institutions, yet again, to pick and choose winners and losers. They have targeted some in the porn industry and are doing the same with the people that sell guns now. And they won’t stop there, I assure you. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that they have been doing this sort of thing to other entities and organizations they dislike. Shit, they sicked the IRS on their political enemies! They won’t back off as long as they feel they can circumvent and the law to get what they want. Despicable.

Others are also wondering about this…

Not sure how many people here have seen the price jump on standardized ammunition calibers and the accompanying shortages that make restocking 9mm and 10mm rounds a monumental exercise. Manufacturers in the US have been going balls to the walls to keep up with demand, as citizens, correctly feeling the heavy hand of those members of Leviathan that want to shit all over the 2nd amendment and disarm the sheeple, stock up on the ammunition. It’s that philosophy that heavy metals are needed to deal with the catastrophic consequences of the idiotic decisions our government is making. I am talking about buying gold, silver, and the ultimate heavy metal, lead, as a precautionary strategy to our reckless fiscal and social policies, which can’t be sustained on unicorn farts and liberal wishful thinking and are setting us on course for a societal implosion.

Many have pointed out that while the military has been gobbling up a lot of ammo, the real outlier is the ridiculous purchases by the DHS. Oh, big sis tells us they aren’t buying that many rounds or that they need those rounds for training. They even claim they are doing this because they want to save tax payers money, and these bulk purchases supposedly do just that. Of course, since it is these bulk purchases driving the scarcity and the price hikes, one can be forgiven for thinking that line is all bullshit. There is something else at work here. Queue the belief that there is an ulterior motive for the DHS purchases, and as the article points out, we got more of the same from the DHS:

Officials at the Department of Homeland Security denied Thursday that its large-scale ammunition purchases were an effort keep bullets out of the hands of private citizens.

At a hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, top DHS training officer Humberto Medina said he could “say categorically that was not a factor at all” in the purchases. He also noted that ammunition DHS purchased would be used for both operations and training purchases.

The Associated Press reported in February that DHS was planning to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds over the next five years, a number that sparked fears of government stockpiling – which DHS previously denied to Whispers. Officials told lawmakers DHS actually was planning to buy only up to 750 million rounds.

But, the information that should immediately stand out to anyone with two firing neurons as odd and contradictory is the following:

But Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said it still looked like the government was unnecessarily amassing ammunition.

“The idea that you have to have excess rounds, year after year, flies in the face of common sense,” Issa said. Medina argued that DHS keeps a reserve of ammunition because of market fluctuations and because of past problems with vendors.

In fiscal year 2012, DHS purchased more than 103 million rounds of ammunition, to be used by about 70,000 DHS officers who are currently authorized to use weapons. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said Thursday that “the math” didn’t make sense, pointing out that this means an average 1300-1600 rounds per DHS officer – some 1000 rounds more than the average for an officer in the Army.

That’s a lot of extra ammo. Granted that’s what an officer shoots in the Army, not the grunts, but I will bet that even the grunts don’t get to fire off even half that many rounds a year, period. WTF makes the DHS agents so much more special? Especially in a time of war.

Leviathan’s agents can deny all they want that this is not a big deal, but I am not buying it. The proof that this government has hated the SCOTUS’ Heller decision is ample. From the
DOJ’s cover up of a scandalous and bogus operation that is tantamount to an act of war against the sovereign Mexican state to the despicable attempted gun grabbing legislation that used the emotions caused by the tragic Newtown massacre to bamboozle citizens into letting Leviathan piss on our constitution, legislation I add that would have done absolutely nothing of an effective to prevent another Newtown-like tragedy but in the mind of reality challenged idiots, it has been obvious that the focus of these people is on disarming the law abiding citizenry. And the ammunition purchases by the DHS is just a lot more of that. It isn’t
