Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.
A new gun law being considered in Congress, if aligned with Department of Homeland Security memos labeling everyday Americans as potential "threats," could potentially deny firearms to pro-lifers, gun-rights advocates, tax protesters, animal rights activists, and a host of others – any already on the expansive DHS watch list for potential "extremism."
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has sponsored H.R. 2159, the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009, which permits the attorney general to deny transfer of a firearm to any "known or suspected dangerous terrorist." The bill requires only that the potential firearm transferee is "appropriately suspected" of preparing for a terrorist act and that the attorney general "has a reasonable belief" that the gun might be used in connection with terrorism.
Gun rights advocates, however, object to the bill's language, arguing that it enables the federal government to suspend a person's Second Amendment rights without any trial or legal proof and only upon suspicion of being "dangerous."

It's being done in increments now. Ban people suspected of being members of militias from owning guns, ban people on the no-fly list from owning guns, Ban smokers (or whatever) from owning guns and gradually you see the numbers of gun owners is getting smaller and smaller.
Ban gun ownership within a certain distance of ... skules for example. Make a psychological test a prerequisite of owning a firearm ... gradually they are unobtainable to law-abiding people.
How about they come to ''check'' your guns? Is that OK? They want to check the guns are in a locked box and the ammunition is somewhere else also locked-up? Where is a good place to draw the line?
I'm sure you are getting uncomfortable. Especially with the progeny of terrorists from Israel (Raum Emanuell) and the previously mentioned Bolshevic leader of HS successfully eroding Americans' freedoms. See who really runs the show?

Thats all they'll get from me.
The day they break for our guns is the day that I believe the rest of you weirdos that they actually ARE out to get us.
I've got my formal apology all written and ready too.
