President Clinton’s Gun-Free America

Louisiana- (Ammoland.com)-  You've heard the news.  This is a look at our future if readers don't get out and vote this year.  This is how Hillary Clinton can disarm these United States.  Whether this is fact or fiction depend on us.

The election was over.  This time President Hillary Clinton kept her word.  President Clinton outlawed firearms, just as she said she would.  Legal scholars pointed out that President Clinton's executive orders never said firearms were illegal, not in so many words.  That was technically true, but in fact you couldn't have a gun.  This is what happened in Hillary’s “Gun-Free” America.

President Obama had already appointed a large number of pro-government judges to the US Federal Circuit Courts.  Clinton accelerated the appointments.  She bypassed the legislative review process, by claiming a state of emergency.  Of course, that was illegal, but 41 loyal Democrat Senators made Clinton immune from legislative rebuke.  Elections have consequences.

The Clinton judges, along with Clinton’s executive orders, “reinterpreted” consumer products laws.  The new Clinton laws let any “injured party” sue firearms manufacturers.  The results were sad to watch.  The victims of gang shootings in our inner city were mostly young minority men raised by single moms.  Once the lawsuits started, these young men had more family than the Duggars.  The injured had more relatives than the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Teachers sued if their students were wounded.  Chicago Ministers joined in the lawsuits if their parishioner's house was hit by a stray bullet.

The trial lawyers who had missed out on the big tobacco settlement 19 years ago had learned their lesson.  Tens of thousands of plaintiff's lawyers had ten years of cases lined up in the courts in no time.  

Clinton responded to the “judicial emergency” and appointed special judges to hear the backlog of firearms related cases.

Any business who touched a firearm was mentioned in the lawsuits, from manufacturers to distributors, from retailers to gunsmiths.  And, of course, their insurance companies.  Any company with an insurance policy or deep pockets was named in the Clinton lawsuits.

Firearms sales to police agencies were technically exempt from the new Clinton gun laws.  Lawyers from the firearms industry knew better and refused to sell even to the cops.  They knew that thousands of firearms were stolen.. or mysteriously resold,  from law enforcement inventories each year.  Each stolen gun was a potential lawsuit.  Industry complained that they couldn't make a profit selling to law enforcement.

That wasn't a fault; that was a feature.

The solution was politically simple.  A Clinton crony bought the rights and tooling from a recently bankrupt firearms company.  President Clinton simply restarted a government arsenal to turn out guns for the armed forces and police.  A percentage of each sale went to the Clinton Foundation.

Any agency or industry who accepted government money was told it was now a gun-free zone.  That included a surprising number of places.  A church was declared a gun free zone because state aid helped pay for their daycare center.  Even armed law enforcement officers were told to stay out.. unless they were on duty.  Taking the king's shilling meant obeying the king.. or the new queen.

Small-government states were outraged.  Some pro-rights states closed the offices of federal agencies located in their states.  Some states reacted differently.  Big-government states were furious.. that they didn't get a cut of the now legal looting of the firearms industry.  New York State imposed a special tax on any proceeds of the firearms lawsuits granted to New York residents.  Other big-government states followed New York's lead.

The news networks, the publicly traded media, were joyous at these new laws.  Story after story claimed that President Clinton's new gun laws would end violence in America.  On the other hand, the public was furious.

The weak kneed republicans put up a bill that outlawed Clinton’s extra legal action.  The republican bill was filibustered in the Senate.  The filibuster was finally broken by invoking special rules for closure.  President Hillary Clinton simply ignored the new regulations and refused to sign them.  Clinton had her federal judges and she had her 41 Democrat Senators to block her impeachment.  Clinton granted herself special funding privileges to pay for her new anti-gun pro-safety initiatives.  President Clinton could do as she pleased, and she did.

Big box retail stores pulled their firearms inventory overnight.  A legal feeding frenzy started as bankruptcy lawyers competed with personal injury lawyers to file lawsuits.  Liberal police chiefs seized the inventory of smaller firearms stores so the “tainted assets” wouldn’t disappear before the lawsuits were settled.

Some large companies were exempt from the seizures.  Those large companies sold their firearms inventory to overseas buyers.  It turned out that those companies had made sizable contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

Gun owners found themselves on the Department of Homeland Security No-Fly list.  Saying they were overwhelmed, the DHS stopped processing appeals.  President Clinton set up “voluntary turn-in sites” where subjects could turn in their registered firearms.  If you wanted to fly, you turned in your guns.

The interstate transport of firearms was outlawed.  Being a registered gun owner was now probable cause for a traffic stop.  Hell, having your car registered to the same address as a gun owner was a good enough excuse to get pulled over.  Firearms were seized on the spot.  Citizens could appeal in court.. if they had the time and money.  Some officers enforced the new gun ban.  Some didn’t.. And that was a problem for President Clinton.  

That is how Hillary Clinton disarmed the US.  What happened next is covered in part two.

We need a better “think tank” to play this chess game ahead more moves to get off the defensive and on the offense. There are other political moves that have nothing to do with guns that will help the constituency which understands he importance of the 2nd amendment.

No, not really oppressed but rather, digressing…the reasons for our refusal to submit. They think that the average gun owner just wants to keep their guns to shoot whomever they feel is violating their safe zone, or because a piece of paper says we have the right to own one. They think, that by imposing more useless laws for gun control, they can make their point relevant & our reasons moot. They think, that if they can “reform” the Constitution, that their control over the puppets will be complete & any that buck the system, can “legally” be branded a… Read more »

What would happen if the NICS system was shut down by the Federal government?

It would create, overnight, the largest black market firearms industry the world has ever seen, while simultaneously creating hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of criminals out of ordinary people who’ve never stepped outside the law previously in their lives.
That was the point of my earlier post. The ‘law’ has nothing to do with morality. There’s going to come a point where every person who wishes to maintain any semblance of his freedom will be forced to break the law to do so. That’s the plan, just like it’s been the plan of every government that’s ever existed.

That was the gist of my comment. If the government chooses to go that route, the reprocussions would be on them, not us. By THEIR LAW, we may become criminals if we choose to keep our guns, stand our ground & fight to keep the freedoms we have that are upheld …not PERMITTED…by our Constitution. The difference is, THEY are already acting in a criminalistic way by attempting to remove or deconstruct, the God given rights that each person alive has…to protect themselves & family…in essence, removing the guarantee of life, liberty & pursuit of happiness that is proclaimed in… Read more »

I understand your perspective.
Yes, you’re right, we are being oppressed. They are the real criminals.
My concern lies with the number of gun owners who aren’t able to differentiate between the two sets of laws we’re discussing. I afraid that by the time they figure it out, it’ll be too late.

I agree with Tionico on this. The depiction was alarming & the scenario is disturbing…but one thing that was failed to be mentioned, was the resistance of WE, THE PEOPLE. With all the Queens cronies, police, thugs & bought individuals, the implement I ng of a government structure such as this, would be met with an opposition such has not been seen since the Independence of our nation from the last Queen (or King). If anything is certain, it is the fact of every red-blooded FREE American, with the Constitution in their hearts & minds, will not sit idley by… Read more »

Plausible, particularly given the well known track record (and hints of the hidden one) of this she beast. However, let us not forget our history, as so many have done. The Colonials knew armed conflict was ahead for more than a decade prior to Lexington. Paul Revere had been an undercover operative for some twenty five years before his “midnight ride”. Even as the pot simmered more vigourously as That Day approached, life was pretty much normal, even in the face of the Brit tyrants having evicted almost all the residents of Boston after the tea chests were had over… Read more »

I’m not really sure why we have all all these guns, if you all just plan on letting them take all your guns. You’re gonna have to get over all this, “legal”, “illegal” b.s. at some point and just come to grips with the fact that you are gonna be an outlaw eventually. If you’re not prepared for that, you may as well go ahead and give your guns away to the people who are. You’re also gonna accept the fact that the same law enforcement officers that you so vehemently support right now, will be the ones charged with… Read more »

Miss, you do NOT need to understand why I own as many firearms as I do. It is none of your business, it is also none of the federal,state or local governments business! It is my business and mine alone. It is my right as a legal ,law abiding American citizen to own as many firearms as I want. The hand-ringing liberals want to disarm “we the people” as to complete the total take over of our lives and liberties. That should make any freedom loving individual, pro or anti “gun”, stand up and fight to preserve all God given… Read more »

I think that you missed the point of my post entirely.
Also, if that “Miss” at the beginning of your post means that you think Lysander Spooner was a female, I suggest you do a Google search on him, lol.

Miss, as in don’t get yer panties in a wad. As a Spooner deciple you may think anarchy and lawlessness is the only path to freedom. Some of us refuse to become criminals in order to maintain our God given rights. Same goals, different approach?

Lysander Spooner
Guest
Lysander Spooner

Yes, we have basically the same goals. I just don’t think, to paraphrase Mencken, that men can be governed AND be free.
Just for the record, Anarchy and lawlessness are not the same thing, like law and legislation, legal and moral, etc. The word has been corrupted into something meant to frighten people, by the very people who don’t want you to consider it as an option. There’s no reason to argue semantics though. You seem to be on the right side of things. Thanks for the clarification.

I do believe that Trump has been working with the Patriots in our shadow government for a while if not from the beginning. Patriots within the ranks of FBI, CIA, NSA, homelad Security and Congress are working to stop this threat. They will fatally wound the beast and We the People will put it out of our misery on Election Day!

This is a well thought out scenario. There will not be a mass assault on our guns so we can all band together and protect our rights. As always, they will use the law to enslave law abiding citizens. Our country may fall as illustrated, death by torturous affair. Each individual “standing alone” will have to risk life and limb. All your assets will be confiscated. This is the abyss where we stand.
