Two of the nation’s leading gun rights organizations have vowed to stop an attempt by the Obama administration to implement broad new gun control measures.

On the heels of a report in the Los Angeles Times claiming that millions of people on Social Security could be prohibited from purchasing firearms because they have their affairs managed by a representative payee, both the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation have said they will fight to keep the plan from going into effect. The plan, similar to a policy already in place at the Veterans Administration, would designate anyone who receives Social Security but has another party legally manage his benefits a “prohibited person” under federal firearms law. So far the VA policy has affected around 177,000 veterans, but the proposed Social Security policy would touch far more, as many as 4.2 million.

The National Rifle Association, the country’s largest gun rights organization, said that it plans to do everything within its power to ensure that the plan is never implemented. “The Obama administration will stop at nothing to strip as many people as possible of their Second Amendment rights,” said Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA will employ all means available to prevent the implementation of such a widespread injustice.”

Cox said that the NRA had called on President Obama to abandon the policy and is working with Congress to force him to drop the plan. “We’ve called on the president to immediately suspend this activity,” Cox told Cam and Company. “We’re going to work with Congress so that if he doesn’t do it voluntarily, which we obviously don’t expect him to, we’re going to make him do it involuntarily.”

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
