Obama announced his latest attempt to take America's guns through Executive Order. The Order is unconstitutional on three of its terms, at least. There is a mental health term, which allows medical records to become part of the background check. This allows doctors to report patients they think are mentally ill and add them to a government database, even without their knowledge. There's no court determination, no defense presented by the patient. Then there's no due process probable cause warrant for the government to access such private medical papers.
In part of the mental health requirement, Obama has made the determination that any senior citizen who receives Social Security through an automatic deposit from government to bank account is immediately deemed unable to take care of their affairs and, thus, too mentally unfit to own a gun. This is Obama's determination of mentally unfit, even though veterans are encouraged to receive their Social Security check in this manner. Even though most employees receive their salary in such a manner, saving time going to the bank, and keeping their money safe from robbery.
The second unconstitutional term is that anyone selling or transferring ownership of one or two guns will now be classified as a gun dealer, requiring a dealer's license, which takes a year to obtain, if granted. Anyone who transfers a gun without a dealer license is deemed to be a criminal. This is where Obama has overstepped his authority, creating a category of a crime. Only Congress can do this. Thus, Congress should step up and stop this Executive Order.
The third unconstitutional term is anyone who is on the no-fly list will have their gun taken. Sounds "sensible" on its face, but the no-fly lists are arbitrary, decided by administration people. There's no notice, no probable cause needed beyond having a similar name, no habeas corpus, or attorney. Someone will put your name on the list, maybe for political revenge, as with the IRS scandal, followed by a knock on your door, demanding your guns.
The problem is that the government has limitless funds in fighting any victims of these unconstitutional terms trying to retrieve their guns.
This Order establishes a national database that the UN has been after for decades. The UN wants to know what kinds of guns, how many guns, how much ammo each American owns. The UN Charter allows the UN Blue Beret Beasts to enter any country to put down a riot, civil unrest that Secretary Ban ki-Moon decides to put down.
One must look at the bigger picture, before he leaves office, Obama is going to bring in 10,000 Syrian "refugees" that the Dept. of Homeland Security and FBI says they cannot vet for terrorists. ISIS has warned that they will enter the United States within the refugees. The CIA taught ISIS/al Qaeda how to make Hell Canons in the Mid East. Recently, components of Hell Canons have been either purchased or stolen in Virginia, Missouri, and No. Carolina. Since 9/11, the number of Mosques in the U.S. has doubled to about 2400. In Paris, they searched the Mosques after their recent attack and found weapons hidden in the Mosques. Obama has prohibited the FBI from surveilling U.S. Mosques, even though such surveillance in the past stopped terror plots. There are 35 Muslim Paramilitarily Training Camps across the U.S. that could be closed if the State Dept. would label them as terrorists groups, but Obama won't allow it, although neither did George W. or Bill Clinton. Without such designation, the terror camps can't be touched by the FBI or local law enforcement. The question today, however, with his unconstitutional gun confiscation Executive Order, is Obama setting up the U.S. to be taken, attacked by Muslim jihadists?
Obama has made numerous back-door attempts to confiscate guns without the notice of the American people, and without touching the Second Amendment. To Wit:
WHEREAS: In March 2009, under Obama, the Dept. of Defense sent a letter to the owner of Georgia Arms, the 5th largest retailer of .223 ammo in America, who normally buy spent brass from the DoD – ‘one time used’ shell casings by our military – from training on military bases. They buy the brass and then re-load for resale to law enforcement, gun shops, gun clubs, Wal-Mart, etc. They normally buy 30,000 pounds of spent brass at a time. The letter stated that the DoD will be shredding the brass, making it useless for reloading. The DoD informed that that shredded brass would be sold for less to China, after paying for the shredding. One of Georgia Arms’ competitors who had already purchased a load of brass last week was contacted by the DoD, saying they were sending someone over to make sure (the brass casings) were destroyed (after purchase). Obama’s policy called for a reclassification* of the brass and resulted in the above procedure. However, public outrage resulted in reversal of Obama’s policy.

WHEREAS: Obama has illegally ordered the ATF to ban the sale to Americans citizens ammunition for the AR-15, the most popular rifle of Americans, by reclassifying* the weapon, even though federal law has exempt this rifle – and thus its ammunition. The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms, ammunition is a given, in order to carry out their “duty” to overthrow a tyrannical government. [dailymail.co.uk/02/27/2014] and [Declaration of Indepen- dence] Only public outrage caused Obama to rescind this order, although ATF says they will work on how to take ammo.
WHEREAS: Operation Choke Point: Obama ordered the FDIC to close all bank accounts of some gun shop owners; as a result, shops have closed, preventing Americans from buying guns from those owners. [www.foxnews.com/politics/ 2015/03/24/ congress-launching-hearing]
WHEREAS: “UNODA, United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, A/CN.11/L.72, Distr: Ristricted, 5 August 2013, Original: English, Disarmament Commission – Civilian Weapons Confiscation Study Group, New York, 20-31 July 2013. The issue of military grade weaponry in the hands of civilians looms ever larger in the face of the global implementation of 22/Agenda 21 by member nations. In particular, the United States of America has an estimate 500 million weapons in the hands of its civilian population. This is not just a static problem, it is a massive dynamic problem for the process of confiscation as there will be those who refuse to surrender their firearms. The conclusion of discussion by the CWCSG led to the adoption of a proposed agenda to begin the process of introducing to member nations a framework by which they can begin codification of national laws to disarm civilians within their borders through a gradual process Within the discussion framework, we have identified several problem areas that must be address, they re: 1. Classification* of military grade weapons to be made illegal for possession. 2. Creation of programs to provide reasonable compensation for voluntary surrender of said arms. 3. Codification of laws to begin the restricting and strict licensing of concealable firearms. 4. Codification of laws to begin the restrict and strict licensing of hunting grade firearms. 5. Codification of laws to restrict the sale of, and possession of ammunition and components to manufacture ammunition. 6. Finally, codification of laws to completely make any and all firearms illegal to own, possess or use outside of military and law enforcement usage. 7. Creation of a United Nations Police Taskforce* with the specific mission of assisting member nations with the collection of weaponry from civilian hands. The WCSG will submit its findings…for a full review by the Office of the Secretary General. [There is much controversy as to the authenticity of this document; good arguments on both sides.

“Summary – Disarmament Goal and Objects – The over-all goal of the U.S. is a free, secure, and peaceful world of independent States (nations) adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct, and subject the use of force to the rule of law; a world which has achieved general and complete disarmament under effective international control; and a world in which adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations…
During Stage II, States (nations) shall develop further peacekeeping process of the United Nations to the end that the UN can effectively in State III deter or suppress any threat or use of force in violation of the purposes and principles of the UN. Stage III: Progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no State (nation) would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened UN Peace Force*…The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those agreed types and quantities to be used by the UN Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order.” [www.sweetliberty.org/issues/guns/dos7277.htm]
