Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- We’ve heard it all a thousand times: Barack Obama’s dubious claims that he believes in the Second Amendment — that he supports hunting and fishing — that he only wants to make “reasonable, common sense” restrictions on your Second Amendment rights.

And we’ve told you a thousand times what you already knew: The man is a liar.

Obama’s goal is nothing less than to crush the Second Amendment movement — and outlaw the possession of firearms in America.

Now we have the “smoking gun” (so to speak). Obama has now moved to shut down every gun dealer and manufacturer in America by cutting off all credit from any financial institution — in addition to eliminating any ability of an FFL to process payments through the banks.

In a front-page article Monday in The Washington Times, reporter Kelly Riddell described this concerted effort by the Obama administration to choke off gun manufacturing and sales in the United States by drying up credit to gun dealers and manufacturers.

Obama Using The FDIC To Restrict Second Amendment Rights

The effort starts with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which has lumped gun dealers in the same “high risk” category as pornographers. Coupled with Eric Holder’s Justice Department Operation Chokepoint, the FDIC’s action has encouraged banks to destroy the gun industry by dropping dealers, freezing their assets, and refusing to process their on-line sales. Already, thousands of gun dealers report being victimized by this administration effort to destroy the Second Amendment by regulatory fiat.

And, if the gun dealer near you has yet to feel the pinch, just wait awhile.

As Barack Obama no doubt understands, if American gun dealers and manufacturers can no longer get credit, the manufacture and sales of firearms in America come to a screeching halt.

As the owner of the gun manufacturer, the McMillan Group, persuasively argued in the Riddell article, this is nothing more than an “attempt by the federal government to keep people from buying guns.”

In fact, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the Obama administration feels it can destroy a major political opponent of theirs — namely, gun owners — by destroying and demoralizing the Second Amendment movement.

GOA working the “ground game”

Already, Gun Owners of America is encouraging Members of Congress to defund Obama’s efforts to dry up funding for the firearms industry by regulatory fiat.

Congressman Steve Stockman put it this way: “It’s pretty clear that, unless Congress uses the power of the purse to stop him, Barack Obama will use his ‘phone and his pen’ to ban guns by cutting off money for gun manufacturers and dealers.”

The Obama administration has done a lot of nibbling around the edges in its efforts to ban guns by the back door. But it has now taken us to the crucible of history. And Congress, by its actions, will show whether it is willing to take on the White House and the sycophant mainline press in order to save the Bill of Rights.

Legislators are proposing bills on a wide variety of fronts. Blaine Luetkemeyer, vice chairman of the House committee with jurisdiction, has called for legislation to block the FDIC’s insidious scheme. And good for him! But, given that Obama will veto any free-standing legislation to save the gun industry, an appropriations rider is also necessary.

By the way, remember the Manchin-Toomey amendment from last year? It would have required private transactions to go through gun dealers. Now we know what that was about. If you have to go to a gun dealer to transfer any gun – and Obama succeeds in shutting down every gun dealer in your state (or within 200 miles of your home) – the Second Amendment, practically, ceases to exist.

Viva la Free Market

While we must work hard to defund Obama’s backdoor efforts to impose gun control, there is also a free market solution that has sprung up. One company that was hit hard by this FDIC policy has created an answer: McMillan Merchant Solutions.

The McMillan family is no newcomer to the Second Amendment community, as they have been manufacturing guns and accessories since 1973.

A victim of the Obama Administration’s policies, the McMillans recently invented and implemented Pistol Pay — a product specifically designed to handle legal firearms transactions between two individuals in a safe and secure method.

Now, McMillan Merchant Solutions can have gun dealers processing credit card orders inside of 24 hours.

If a gun store you deal with has been squeezed due to the President’s administrative pressure, here is where they can get relief: http://www.mmsllc.com/

Finally, GOA has just learned that there seem to be other similar solutions. As we check them out, we will let you know about them.

ACTION: Contact your Senators and Representative. Demand that they adopt language on this year’s appropriations bills which will stop Obama from bankrupting the firearms industry by cutting off credit to gun dealers.

    1. I have contacted my reps and have no responses. I cant understand why congress lets this president shred our constitutional rights and sits with their thumbs up their butts! elections are fast approaching and someone will get fired!

    2. Everyone is talking about how the upcoming mid-term elections will get the Republicans back in control ! Well thats all good and well except the Republicans let obama hussein do anthing he wants with his “pen and a phone” What will change ? Will they just do a another “McCain” ?

    3. Also contact Bass Pro and Cabela’s if you carry those cards. Make sure the companies they use for them are not bowing down to Obama. Bass Pro is Bank of America and Cabela’s is Worlds Foremost Bank. If your personal bank is bowing to Obama/Holder, it’s time to change banks.

    4. If the American people don’t wake up. This fool in the white house will kill our rights to bear arms. He is worthless in ever thing he doe’s. Obama must go. Stand up America for your right’s our he will take them away.

    5. We need to choke Obama. The only legal method is impeachment. Considering the recent event in Kentucky, McConnell winning the slot (again) for the Senate seat, this is unlikely. Our future does NOT look good.

    6. Obama is nothing more than a two face fork tongue unjustifiable brainless foul smart mouth crook and the rest of them too… we are Americans not robots or animals… we can all live by our rights no matter what… aren’t the people that voted just guy in office sure that he is not a Hitler or Hussein or Ben Laden or even Putin ??????? HELLOOOOO WALKE THE HELL UP STAND UP AGAINST THEM or coward down like a blind black sheep that is anything but strong and tell these guys NO YOU AINT RUNNING OUR LIFES WE AS A NATION SHALL RISE TO FIAR NO EVIL…………………….

    7. Obama NEVER SPENT ONE SECOND IN ANY MILITARY branch so what gives him any rights above and beyond the citizens of America ??? we served this nation we have seen the up most horrific events that will haunt us VETS.for the rest of our lifes.. we do not walk the earth thinking we own everything and everyone.. we only own ourselves nothing more…Obama is not a leader of any good to America nor even to the rest of any nations… he needs to be impeached at once without delay….

    8. Obama is a traitor and so are most of our senators and congressmen. With 17 trillion in debt they are destroying our country. Working against our constitutional rights rather than supporting them should be a penalty of death for any sworn official. We have a mafia running our country that couldn’t care less about the tax payers. We have judges and an attorney general that belong to or are owned by that mafia organization.

    9. The Democrat Socialists have struck a roadblock in their quest to fulfill their Resolution to: “IN TIME, CONFISCATE PRIVATE PROPERTY, PRIVATE INDUSTRY, PRIVATE INCOME AND PRIVATE CAPITAL AND MAKE IT THE PROPERTY OF THE ELECTED ASSEMBLY OF STATE.”
      I was at that Regional Council Meeting with the Regional Travelers and District Representatives for the Niagara SDS at SUNY in 1968. It was agreed the disarmament of the US Citizens would have to take place before this move to a Totalitarian Socialist (Communist) State could be achieved.
      Solidarity with the al Fatah PLO-PLF was reaffirmed at this meeting too.
      Do not submit to disarmament stand with your Constitutional Second Amendment Right.
      What is happening is not stupidity on the part of this driven Administration, but a carefully planned conspiracy to take over and change our United States to a Communist State with the aid of their insurgent “Warriors of Jihad.”

    10. Obama means just this……. ONE BIG ASS MISTAKE AMERICA !!

      If the Second Amendment falls so does the rest of our Constitution !!
