Written by Chuck Baldwin & understanding the DHS report on rightwing extremists plus the DHS released/recalled MIAC report, the following is truly scary stuff. Every gun owner can have their 2nd Amendment rights DENIED if HR2159 passes (proposed by idiot rino Rep. King from NY). The only measure for this is a SUSPICION, no proof of wrongdoing needed. Is this what rino's mean when they say they are 'moderates'? If this passes OR especially if this rino is supported by the Republican party, the GOP can forever kiss goodbye any hope of winning back my support, along with many others.
"According to World Net Daily, May 9, 2009, "A new gun law being considered in Congress, if aligned with Department of Homeland Security memos labeling everyday Americans a 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.'"
