Obama demands Congress pass law denying Second Amendment rights to anyone the government puts on a list. No explanation needed. No due process

Gun control

(NaturalNews) Like a myna bird or a broken record that repeats the same thing over and over again, President Obama can't stop talking about taking away your Second Amendment rights. But would-be tyrants tend to do that, we suppose.

Anyway, as he promised he would, the president is continuing to politicize gun tragedies, this time in response to a recent shooting in Colorado, in which a crazed loner who lived off the grid and has a history of violence, shot and killed three people while wounding nine others.

"This is not normal. We can't let it become normal," Obama said. "If we truly care about this ... then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough."

Of course, the shooter – Robert Dear – did not have a "weapon of war." He had a semi-automatic rifle that resembles one. And while some may argue that is just semantics, as someone who has actually fought in a war (unlike Obama), I know the differences between such weapons, and they are substantial. After all, Obama and the Democrats are lecturing the rest of us to "be honest" about this gun debate, and yet they're the first ones not to be honest.

Watch lists

As for Obama, he didn't stop there. He went on to demand – demand, mind you – that Congress pass legislation before the holidays tightening up gun laws ostensibly aimed at persons with "mental health issues." And of course, who would get to decide what constitutes a "mental health issue?" That's right – Big Government.

"If the U.S. Government has determined that it is too dangerous for you to board a plane then you shouldn't be able to buy a gun," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said a day after the Colorado Springs shooting. "Congress should pass this law before leaving for the Holidays," Breitbart reported.

Coming from a guy who is protected 24/7/365 from threats, just like his boss, that's a pretty bold statement. What's also ironic is that Earnest insists "the government" is competent enough to make such decisions about who gets to fly and who doesn't – even when it's demonstrated otherwise.

So what happens when you get put on a government "list?" Easy – your rights disappear, and what's more, there is no process for taking them away. They just vanish.

Consider the case of Gulet Mohamed, a 21-year-old U.S. citizen from Alexandria, Virginia. According to Mint Press News, "Mohamed "discovered he was on a watch list in 2011, when he was told he would not be allowed to travel back to the United States after a trip to Yemen and Somalia — his country of origin. Mohamed was never charged with a terror-related offense or any other crime, which is why he is fighting his inclusion on the list."


"Of those included on the watch list, many are actually not suspected of being known terrorists, but are known as 'non-investigative subjects.' In other words, the federal government is, as Abbas says, 'literally putting people they decided not to investigate on the federal government watch list" — a matter Abbas said all American[s] should find disconcerting because it's proof that the 'government is playing games with folks.'"

Fair play

What's more, most people on government watch lists have no idea they've been placed on one, until they attempt to exercise their constitutional rights – like buying and owning firearms.

And the Obama administration wants to emulate state laws such as those adopted in New York, where gun-hating politicians and Gov. Andrew Cuomo deny Second Amendment rights to those added to a "mental health list," even for the flimsiest of reasons. And worse, once you're on one of those lists it is next to impossible to get removed from it.

Obama has lectured Americans for years, but most recently about our need to not overreact to the Paris terrorist attacks, by denying Syrian refugees entry into our country, despite the fact that our own intelligence agencies know that terrorist operatives from that part of the world are already in the U.S., and are using the refugee "crisis" as a way to infiltrate our country and others in the West.

Well, turnabout is fair play, Mr. President. Yes, we've had some horrific shootings in recent years, but let's not overreact to them by attempting to deny innocent Americans their Second Amendment rights.
