Today, Barack Obama announced new gun control measures enacted through executive action that would further restrict law-abiding Americans from exercising their second amendment rights.

As a result, the president revealed his contempt for the constitution, public opinion and congress.

Constitution:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – 2nd Amendment

Stifling law-abiding Americans from purchasing firearms infringes on the 2nd amendment, the Bill of Rights speaks for itself.

Congress:

The Constitution defines the separation of powers of the legislative (or lawmaking) branch in Article I, the executive branch in Article II, and the judicial branch in Article III.

Executive orders clearly violate the spirit of our political system, which requires the president to negotiate and deal with congress to find a solution on issues like gun control.

Instead of working with fellow Americans in government, Obama has chosen to operate outside of law thereby turning the executive branch into a textbook totalitarian dictatorship.

Public Opinion:

According to a recent Gallup poll, less than half of Americans (47% to be exact) said they favored stricter gun control laws covering the sale of firearms.  Evidently, our president couldn’t possibly care less about public opinion.

We are a nation of laws and our president seems more than happy to override them in order to push his draconian agenda.  The establishment doesn’t aim to keep us safe, they’re pushing for disarmament for the purpose of control.

Furthermore, hidden in Obama’s executive actions are restrictions on firearm ownership for Americans who are critical of government and some social security beneficiaries.

The only way to stop this criminal is to get informed, share articles on social media and expose our fraudulent puppet president for being a psychopathic dictator.  Evidently, President Obama is hell-bent on overstepping his authority and eradicating the same liberties that patriots throughout history have died for.

It is a fantastical time to be alive.
