White House Spits in Americans Face Over AR-15 ‘Gun’ Ban

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- ACTION: Contact your Senators. Demand that they oppose the Lynch nomination, and do everything in their power to get the ammunition ban reversed.

Senators can use the Lynch nomination to hold Obama accountable

A smirking White House spokesman Josh Earnest couldn’t conceal his glee, yesterday, as he reveled in the trick Obama had played on the Second Amendment movement.

Think back to April 17, 2013, when the Senate killed the Feinstein amendment to ban the AR-15 by a vote of 60-40. This fell 20 votes short of the needed 60, even though Democrats controlled the Senate at the time. But now Obama is trying to effectively ban the AR-15 by “regulatory fiat” by banning the most common ammunition used in that firearm, M855 ammunition.

But a gushing Earnest was unrepentant: “The President has long believed that there are some commonsense steps that we can take … taking some commonsense steps to prevent people who shouldn’t have guns from getting guns.”

There are a couple of things which are interesting about this statement:

(1) Certainly the first is the Orwellian use of “Bloomberg-speak” — using the gun control nuts’ “commonsense steps” jargon TWICE IN THE SAME SENTENCE. To try to come up with an analogy would be almost impossible, but it’s as though a Gestapo soldier was so stuck in a discredited pattern of behavior that he gave a Hitler salute at his war crimes tribunal.

(2) The second is a Freudian slip, but it says volumes: Earnest talks about keeping GUNS out of the hands of “inappropriate” persons.

But hold on a second: This was supposedly a ban on AMMUNITION, not a ban on guns. But, as Earnest made clear — however haplessly — this is an effort to BAN GUNS by banning ammunition used in guns.

So what is to be done?

Over and over again — on immigration, on ObamaCare, on guns, on the Internet — Obama ignores any legal or constitutional restraints on his actions. And then he dares congressional Republicans to do anything about it — and mocks and laughs at them in the process.

But Senate Republicans do have leverage. And they are in a position to deprive Obama of something he very much wants — that is, holding a vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General.

Loretta Lynch
Loretta Lynch

Lynch is a leftist, anti-gunner and she deceived Senators on the Judiciary Committee with respect to gun control, making it as clear as a bell that she intended to continue and expand Eric Holder’s unlawful executive actions and gun bans.

Imagine a nominee for Attorney General claiming that she was “not familiar” with the gun legislation that was hotly debated in the public square for months after the Sandy Hook shooting. While taking questions from Senators in the Judiciary Committee, Lynch refused to give her opinion on universal background checks which, similar to the Toomey-Manchin language, would have effectively imposed a universal gun registry on millions of Americans.

Furthermore, it also seems clear that Lynch is being groomed to replace Supreme Court Justices Anthony Kennedy or Antonin Scalia — which would turn the court into an anti-gun juggernaut.

Republican Leader Mitch McConnell can put the Lynch nomination on hold by simply refusing to bring her up. And while Senate Republicans should ultimately oppose her nomination, they should urge McConnell (at a minimum) to let her nomination languish without a vote.

So why don’t they? Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and a liberal anti-gun press are laughing at the GOP. And it’s time the GOP showed a little backbone.

ACTION:

  • (1) Contact your Senators. Demand that they oppose the Lynch nomination, and do everything in their power to get the ammunition ban reversed.
  • (2) Contact the NRA if you are an NRA member. Urge them to come out in strong opposition to the Loretta Lynch nomination. You can contact the NRA via their webform or call them at: 1-800-672-3888 or 1-800-392-8683.

ATF will most liely go to each company threaten with fines and jail to cease sales and production to civilians, JUST LIKE BARNES BULLETS. Look it up Barnes solids banned, multiple calibers all claiming to be able to used in a pistol . Not loaded ammo , constructive ban by using existing laws.

justtryit

Looks like OslammaJammaBama’s Butt-Buddie ingested too much Preparation H!

looks like i’m being censored, i just exposed a bait and switch tactic used by our leaders and its not posted. the ammo ban was a diversion.

freewill

ATF backed down to quick, to easy, I smelled a rat, its called bait and switch, while every bodys attention was on this, the wanna be king obama is signing on to the UN climate justice tribunal, complete with foreign judges, he’s trying to by pass the Senate confirmation on this and I have a suspicion the UN small arms treaty is in there some where. stand guard people.

william johnson

the word of the day…CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE! That’s how we beat them! What are they going to do, lock up 300,000 gun owneers?!

George

Is it time to put Operation Valkrie in play?

misterick

Christ what a bunch of bigoted idiots commenting here.

don magic juan

I agree completely, nobody talks about how we couldn’t even buy AR-15s between 94′-04′ lots of Bush years! This article also claims 62gr. Ammo is “the most common” maybe for military, not civilians. Most Americans have more gun rights than ever and none of them seem to appreciate it! I can’t stand this racist bullsh*t either! This day in age its absolutely ridiculous! Just had to say it.

Bandit

You are forgetting there are a lot of Clinton years in therexas well, you people keep ragging on Bush but it was under Clinton that, that particular bill was singed, so get off Bush’s. Back already, the way many of you people attack him all the time you would think that he was till in office. Face we have a dictator in office right now and if you think we have more gun rights now than ever before, woo just go to NJ with your gun, not only will you be locked up but you ill be sent to prison… Read more »

you could buy AR 15 between 94 and 04 they just had to be demilitarized no flash suppressor, no pistol grip and no bayonet lug, read the technical language of the law at the time. it was a very weak and not really not a ban

Oneil

Voted him you say? He is just a puppet bought and payed for just like the rest of the cockroaches in the white house. We the people or should I say we the exterminators need to do a little cleaning up.

Gun Owner

This country can survive Obama, and it is not him we should be worried about. It is the people who voted him into office that I’m worried about. I’m not sure if this country will survive them.

Maca

Geeze guys Im glad I live in New Zealand!!!! Ill sit and observe!

bill spurgeon

The half breed that is in the white house is a moron. and all the other dem and some rep are morons. They thank that this ammo is the only kind used I guess . there is so many brands and so much components of this ammo this is funny. we have a gov. full of morons . we need to do away with about 60% of the house of congress and about 50% of the senate. and most of the rest of the departments that are costing us taxpayers so much money. and take hold of our gov. again… Read more »

Captain Bob

I understand what you are saying and I’m with you BUT Obama and his minions are NOT morons. They are smart and they know exactly what they are doing. This was no mistake because they thought only criminals used this ammo to shoot cops. It was a plan to ban popular ammo and then, after this was in place for that reason (cop-killing) they would start banning other ammo for the same reason since virtually ANY rifle cartridge will penetrate police body armor and almost all rifle cartridges have been chambered in some sort of pistol. It was the old… Read more »

FORTUNATELY, the BATFE was SWAMPED with angry protests from LAW-ABIDING, private citizens who INFORMED the jerks running BATFE that the AMMO under consideration to be outlawed is THE MOST POPULAR AND COMMON ammo not just in THIS country, but in THE WORLD! Furthermore, inner city gang-bangers have NEVER shot a police officer with either a handgun OR a rifle using THIS ammunition. So, for NOW, no ban. Expect another end-run by this administration in an all-out effort to end private citizens’ ownership of ALL and ANY firearms before Mr. Hitler II leaves The White House! Be informed. Be watchful, folks.

Greg

It is time for all of our reps who took the oath to enforce it. Those white spineless men in D.C are fools for not impeaching the dictator.

Wow. Arizona… you need to take your meds EVERY DAY, and maybe stay out of the sun for a while.

TEX

Arizona,You’re unreal dude ! Put a few Buds away and chill out ! The US will survive the negro muslim stinking up the White House !

bigmegina

congress will do nothing because they are all paid whores.notice how Obama does not pick anybody white?that is because we are conqured.

Nam Marine

Sorry “BOY” no one is paying attention to you anymore !

Nickname

NEVER trust a sodomite or his lovers like the idiot white boy bending over for the negro. But this is all getting too weird for me with obama electing his mother (notice the resemblance?) to “Lynch” Americans. The lieberals are beyond breaking the law and now making fun of you Americans!

But you should laugh because you know you will be committing treason if you listen to the sociopaths and psychopaths (laughing white boy) breaking your Constitution. You did know that didn’t you?

crymech

This clown is like his boss. Needs to be fired.

Terry Harris

I’m not even a gun owner, I’m a felon, and trust me on this… you don’t want me to have a gun unless I’m your fox-hole buddy, then I’m your champ. What concerns me about this ban is that M16 owners (our military) can become the prime source of the ammo. Use one round to kill a soldier and now you’d have 60 more rounds. Our precious military just keeps getting kiestered.

JD

Don’t know where you live Terry, but in WA all you have to do is fill out some paperwork for the court, pay 280.00 bucks and bang! You get your gun rights restored. That is if you have been a good boy for at least 5 years.

Janek

Re: The Picture – Akin to Joseph Goebbels, but with a smile!

rehafner

And the ammo is flying off the shelves faster than it can be stocked. The people are flipping Obama and ATF the famous one fingered salute.

Jay

Well rehafner, could it be that he really wants people to stock up on guns and ammo so that while he and the rest of the NWO guru’s are hiding out underground and eating the food that they have hoarded for the last days, the people up top who have run out of food and finances will use those guns to carry out the U.N. population control agenda? Could it be a little reverse psychology?

Eric

OH the good old Circle K in Phoenix AZ . GAS , tobacco ,Booze and Firearms , only 1 store I liked it back in 1993 first time there.

Janek

ATF sounds like a good name for a one stop shopping emporium where you can buy your alcohol, tobacco, and firearms.

Luis

I remember seeing this on a T-shirt in a catalogue, a couple of years ago:

“Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms”

Who’s bringing the chips?”

Grey Beard

I have that T-Shirt. I wear it to our weekly “Cigar Night” event where we smoke cigars, drink beer (or whatever You want), and talk about and handle various firearms. Yes, the ammunition is safely stored.

Eric

Time to eat the alphabet soup and get rid of the letters batfe.
