Washington, DC – -( President Obama traveled to Denver, Colorado yesterday to sign the multi-billion dollar, pork-laden, so-called “stimulus” bill into law.

But forget the $787 billion price tag you heard on TV.  Forget the $12 TRILLION debt limit which the bill created.

By the time debt services and other frills of the “socialism bill” are accounted for, the cost will be over $3,000,000,000,000 (yes, three TRILLION).

This makes the bill the biggest government spending grab in human history.

But what about the details? The hundreds and hundreds of pages in the bill were not made available until less than 18 hours before the final passage vote. But here’s what we know in relation to the gun-related provisions:

* The final bill continues to spend between $12 and $20 BILLION on requiring your doctor to retroactively put your most confidential medical records into a government database.  Based on our experience with veterans, we would expect the government to try to use computerized psychiatric records to impose gun bans on people who have sought (or will seek) treatment.

* The final bill continues to fund liberal community action groups like ACORN, which, you may remember, engaged in massive criminal election fraud on behalf of Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy and also was involved in anti-Second Amendment activism in New Jersey.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was at least honest when he said it would be a shame to let a crisis like the current recession “go to waste.” Like vultures picking on the nation’s carcass, the White House has used the nation’s pain to lavish largesse on its political supporters, at the expense of the nation’s economic survival.

And, in the end, this act of ethical depravity was made possible by every Democrat Senator who voted for the bill, plus the defections of three Republicans: Arlen Specter (R-PA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), and Susan Collins (R-ME).

If there is one silver lining to all of this, it’s the debunking of a rumor that recently swept across the internet.  The rumor claimed that the provisions of HR 45 — the massive gun registration bill introduced by Chicago congressman Bobby Rush (D) — were “rolled into” what was passed.

But having searched the contents of the new law, GOA staff has determined the rumor appears to be false.


Are You A Bitter Clinger?

Who is a Bitter Clinger? According to Barack Obama, who was recorded unawares at a San Francisco fundraiser, bitter clingers are voters who are bitter because of their economic frustration and so cling bitterly to their Bibles and their guns.

If you are a bitter clinger, Gun Owners of America has a T-shirt for you!

You can proudly proclaim your membership in this class of people so looked down upon by the elites in our country.

The shirt is available at for $15.50 plus shipping and handling.

What’s Your Current GOA Status?

Obviously, we now face years of invigorated attacks on our gun rights. Shutting down gun shows, prohibitions on specific calibers, another semi-auto ban, and the anti-gun extremists’ Holy Grail of mandatory federal licensing and registration of all gun owners — these are just some of the horrors that we already know we’ll have to defeat head-on.

It can’t be done without every single voice being counted. That’s why we are asking you to consider making the commitment of becoming a Gun Owners of America Life Member. By doing so, you put the politicians on notice that neither you nor GOA is going away — that no matter who’s in the White House, there is always going to be a solid wall of resistance.

Now is a perfect time to come a Life Member. In addition to providing GOA an infusion of much-needed funds, you can take advantage of a free firearms inventory software promotion.

And if you aren’t a GOA member at all, isn’t it time you became one? Or maybe you are a current member and can’t commit to Life at this time, but could spare another small additional donation. In those instances, the free software also applies… because GOA is doing all it can at this time to line up the troops for the battles that surely must be fought.
