Washington, DC -(Ammoland.com)- In one of the first pro-gun actions of his administration, President Donald Trump is expected to shortly move to revoke Barack Obama's illegal actions to effectively outlaw gun collecting.

Obama's anti-gun “executive action” was announced on January 6, 2016 — in the wake of Obama's unsuccessful attempt to scapegoat law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a Muslim terrorist in San Bernardino.

Obama's action was implemented as a “clarification” because he knew that his lawless moves could never pass muster under the rule-making procedures of the Administrative Procedures Act.

Under Obama's now-moribund “clarification,” a gun owner could have been imprisoned for up to five years and fined $250,000 for “only one or two [firearms] transactions,” according to a White House fact sheet.

Note that, under Clinton, tens of thousands of licensees lost their licenses because they didn't have “brick-or-mortar” stores.

Now, in a Clinton/Obama Mutt-and-Jeff routine, Obama proposed to imprison hobbyists who didn't have licenses because the government refused to issue licenses to them.

Hence, a hobbyist who bought a firearm one day and sold it the next day at a profit could go to prison for five years. Obviously, the intent was to create such a cloud of ambiguity that gun owners would refrain from constitutionally protected activity (private firearms sales), for fear that they would run afoul of Obama's amorphous rules.

Tragically, in some cases, Obama's unlawful actions had exactly the intended effect.

But, thanks to President Donald Trump, Obama's unlawful action will soon be repealed — as one of the priority actions of the incoming administration.

Gun Owners of America is optimistic that this is only the first in a series of Trump actions overturning illegal Obama actions.

We are also asking for Trump administration action:

  • Removing the U.S. from the Anti-Gun UN Arms Trade Treaty;
  • Repealing bullet and gun import bans going from Obama back to George H. W. Bush's semi-auto import ban;
  • Repealing the suspension of health privacy laws with respect to gun owners;
  • Repealing executive actions encouraging doctors to inquire about gun ownership and to enter this information into a federal health database;
  • Restoring gun rights for 257,000 law-abiding veterans;
  • Repealing Obama's efforts to strip Social Security recipients of their guns, merely because a guardian processes their checks.

There is an old joke that goes: “What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? Answer: A good start.”

The work of restoring the Second Amendment to its God-given status has only just begun.

But the important thing is that it has begun.

Sincerely,

Tim Macy
Chairman

If I may, I think a couple of comments are appropriate 1. Several posts here appeared in Spanish, which I assume is the writers native language. I have no idea as to how many people who view these posts read Spanish, therefore once again, how about an English translation please. 2. President Trump is supposedly a strong supporter of Second Amendment Rughts, several aspects of which have been screwed up by past presidential executive orders. President Trump has the power, the authority to kill these executive orders, though one wonders if decision authority might be time limited, I don’t know.… Read more »

As to Trump Readises Pen To Remove Anti Gun Executive Orders, he had best quite making noises about it, and do it. TIme is passing, and the window for rescinding previous executive orders is closing. By the way, the extra lgal antics of the ATF remain, standing before the populace, in all their glory, waiting for concrete expressions of presidential disapproval, pardon me for so noting.

As for existing legislation, things like The Hughes Amendment, The GCA of 1968, the National Firearms Act of 1934, ridding us of those millstones requires congressional action, the congress needs to be pushed and pushed hard, pushed without respite here,if anything is to be accomplished.

This is another slimy example of the necessity to be “reasonable” and be a ” willing victim”. Why only a 10 day “waiting period”? Why not a year? It’s more “reasonable”.

Or blaming the car for drunk driving,especially when there is a loose nut behing the wheel. Or a pervert pulling the trigger.

“You wouldn’t deny a state the right to regulate driving or alcohol sales or welfare benefits, or immigration” Ignoring for the moment that none of those are constitutionally protected rights, imagine the outcry that would result if a state proposed requiring a background check and a waiting period to buy alcohol to make sure the purchaser has never been convicted of DUI/DWI. “You’d be fine if a burglar could buy a gun as long as you could buy a gun at your whim.” You’re forgetting that criminals, by definition, break laws.

@Bob G, you are wrong. Gat is slang for the Thompson submachine gun. I think that you have switched sides. You have turned into an elitist.

(Oh, and states do not have any right, powers, or authorities in immigration law…none.)

Bob G.: There is no reasonable balance when it comes to rights, you either have them or you don’t, you either are allowed to exercise them or you aren’t.

Why not just decommission the EPA. Send every employee home, unemployed. Let the United States Attorneys’ offices prosecute alleged violations. Make the USDOJ do its job while saving billions of taxpayers dollars. Most of these federal agencies are no more than jobs programs for liberals and hardcore unemployables, anyway.

LesWol

Lots of federal employees are conservatives that despise liberal policies. If they lose their jobs they will be on unemployment, an unhappy situation for them and the taxpayer. If we decommission the EPA and the entire BAFTE we would be better off offering these people a lateral transfer, maybe to an expanded DOD. If I were still working for the government I’d leap at the chance for a transfer if my job was eliminated.

Wild Bill
Guest
Wild Bill

I really was not considering the employees because the point of an agency is not to employ people. Many of the federal agencies are making rules that have the force and effect of law, that is a usurpation of Congress’ legislative authority. The agencies are exercising authority that they do not have and, therefore, must go.

A pro-Second Amendment Civil Rights Director would not solve the problem of corruption down to the special agent level. Why not just repeal the GCA and the NFA and send the entire BATFE home, unemployed, saving the taxpayers billions every year. The GCA and the NFA have neither prevented nor solved a single crime, ever.

I would add the Post Office parking lot ban to that list. The gun free school zone needs to have an exemption for CHL holders vehicles on school property also.

The so called “Gun Free School Zones Act” is a disaster that needs to be REPEALED!
Look at a map of the K-12 public, private and parochial schools in your city and draw a 1000 foot no-carry zone around each one and you will see that this draconian law essentially takes our 2A rights away from us. Full Constitutional Carry laws are meaningless as long as this law remains in effect…and we know it does nothing but further endanger our children in those zones as criminals do not obey laws and signs!

when that disaster was first passed, I saw a map of my town…. with all those 1000 foot circles overlapping, there was NO WAY I could drive, wealk, or cycle the few miles from my house to any freeway onramp. In other words, either I left my gun at home (how could I even GET IT THERE when I bought it?) or became a felon every time I drove anywhere out of town, or through it. So I said NUTS TO IT. and carried on regardless. These days I’ll cycle right past any of the schools, handgun in pocket, and… Read more »

I would suggest that all public areas of Post Offices should allow carry per the state law. The Postal Workers Union can deal with their problem created by the PMG banning guns to postal workers back in 1964, before the firast postal worker went “postal.” Years ago the mail carriers had a 45 in their leather mail bag.

Years ago rural mail carriers would deliver the mail with a gun rack in their truck. Every once in a while one of them would be lucky enough to shoot a buck and put it in the back of their truck until they could get it processed.

@LesWol, Years ago, we could go into the hardware store, buy a firearm, and walk out with no more paperwork than a receipt. Our freedoms are slipping away so incrementally that is even hard to describe, much less stop. I weep for the youth of our nation that don’t even know what freedom is and, therefore, what to demand! I believe that the beginning of this evil is the rule (with the force and authority of law) making ability of the various federal agencies.

It has to be a balancing act. Modern society may or may not be different from when you or I were you, but I have no problem with a fair waiting period and a background check. My problem is – as you stated – the protracted dry hump of politics using guns as the mean monkey that ails us. I grew up on a farm. This was back in the 60’s, but I was taught about guns and gun safety, and I was responsible enough at seven to get a revolver loaded with ratshot to dispatch those big scary farm… Read more »

Get real, “a fair waiting period and a background check” is part of the problem. The Statists are never happy and will always want just one more bit of “sensible gun safety rules” including checks on personal transfers, universal registration, and eventually confiscation.

You make a good point regarding freedom. Hopefully Trump will release the freedom that we should have. The laws that have passed from Clinton on seem to squash the freedom of the people. We need to teach our youth about guns and responsibility. The time may come when they need to shoot to preserve the way of life or life itself.

I visited a municipal Post Office in N.E. Ohio last week and looked & looked for the “no firearms here” stickers/signs/placards both on my way in and again on my way back to the car – and there was no “Victim Zone” indicators ANYWHERE that I could detect.
I have grown accustomed to the evidence of infringement of my Liberties while using post offices ever since qualifying for the State recognized permit to carry, and this is the very first time I’ve encountered a lack of signage at a post office.

The REPEAL of the 1989 import ban by krook lloyd bentsen and daddy bush for”sporting purposes” and such deserves a flying start. There is no logical reason that my old original H and K 91 is worth 3 grand. Besides I’d like to add a Valmet M78 AGAIN to the collection to keep it company. So dump the import ban, pretty puleeez!!!!!!!!!!!

Repealing the entire GCA would be no more difficult than removing the sporting purpose test. Let’s push for repeal of the GCA and the NFA.

I have a 100% disability awarded by the VA. Unfortunately, it’s due to PTSD. (Stuff I deal with from Vietnam. Am I correct in thinking I cannot get a carry permit or own a weapon for home defense? And had I had one, it would have been revoked?

Seriously, I know the proper situations/use of a handgun. I’m not one of these home-grown terrorists. I’m just a vet. With no malice toward anyone. UNLESS there is an invasion into my home.

Am I out of luck?

Under the executive order signed by Obama, you would not be allowed to own any fire arm if the VA reports to Social Security Admin that you have a mental health issue. The SSA was required to report you to local authorities starting Jan 18th. 2017. HOWEVER, President Trump is rescinding that EO. He already signed an EO to stop the implementation of all regulations.

I would still keep a weather eye open. There may still be some hidden bombs in the mine field that Barrack Obama laid out.

The VA tried to take my guns and I went to my senator. They shut up and no more was heard about it. The bottom line is for this to be legal you have to have been charged with a felony crime, tried, and convicted before you are supposed to loose your gun rights under the 2nd amendment. “Obummer” enacted an unlawful act by this executive action and he knew it.

Governor Brown in California has passed laws to make it very hard to purchase guns you like so many now are only for law enforcement officers even a Browning 22 target ported pistol. We have to register our AR’s. It appears if they cannot come and take our guns they will make it impossible to buy them. They are going to require gun manufacturers to have any gun do a double casing stamp of course manufacturers are not going to comply and gun stores will go out if business. You have to pass yet another background check in order to… Read more »

Karen Boyles:

It isn’t the governor, Brown or any other governor who Passes Laws, it is the state legislature, even in California, where I lived for a while, oh so many years ago, that enacts laws. Re that FACT, who did you and other Californians who have commented here vote for or put in other terms, who didn’t you all vote against? also, did you all vote and or work for opponents? How is it that Brown came go be governor is another point of interest? Just the expression of an old man’s curiosity.
