From the Washington Post, via Drudge, comes word that Obama plans to seize guns. Included will be: tracking all gun ownership and sales, restrictions on ammunition purchasing, and mental health exams for all gun owners and/or purchasers.
In addition, Obama plans to introduce Cap and Tax (aka the Global Warming initiatives), Open Borders aka Amnesty aka “immigration reform” and the debt ceiling. He’s invading Russia while conducting a Peninsular Campaign. He’ll do much damage, to the nation (and quite possibly end it) but he doesn’t see it. He feels like Jamie Foxx at the end of “Django Unchained” where he’s “killed all the White people, how Black is that?” and figures “I won.”
Obama figures there is no need to be moderate, he is operating as if the President were a supersized Mayor Washington of Chicago.
Obama hopes to peel off hunters and Wal-Mart to play ball. Undoubtedly he has punishments for those who don’t play ball, but his string of broken promises and his habit of double-crossing those who have gone along with him work against him. How have things worked out for Boehner? For McCain? For “moderate Republicans?” Have they found electoral success, no real challenges in primaries? Will Wal-Mart decide to go with the guy that most of their customer base really HATES? After all, same-store sales in Wal-Mart USA are flat, expansion abroad has been iffy and fraught with peril (Wal-Mart Mexico is embroiled in a pay-to-expand bribery scandal). Obama can make things very difficult for them. On the other hand, their customers can desert them. And the fashionable set don’t shop at Wal-Mart.
Hunters too, are going to be wary of making any deals with a guy known for tossing those he makes deals with, under the bus at the first opportunity. Obama promised during the campaign he would not “go after your guns” and now he’s … going after your guns.
My guess is that Obama will effectively outlaw gun ownership, sales, ammunition, and so on, creating the robust black market in guns that exists in Mexico, and making most White middle class Americans into criminals who HATE HATE HATE their government and find it nothing but an oppressor.
Obama’s gun ban effort will go as well as Napoleon and Hitler’s invasion of Russia. A massive success at first, against weak enemies, and then a fighting retreat to prevent a total rout and the end as a continental power.
