Rahms Gun Denial List

It’s no secret that the current administration does not approve of gun ownership by American citizens. So overall it came as no surprise when I found a video on a blog of the white house chief of staff, Rahm Emmanual, speaking to a conference for the Brady campaign about one of his ways of preventing firearm ownership.

It’s no secret that the current administration does not approve of gun ownership by American citizens. So overall it came as no surprise when I found a video on a blog of the white house chief of staff, Rahm Emmanual, speaking to a conference for the Brady campaign about one of his ways of preventing firearm ownership.

You see, we already have certain laws that revoke the rights of gun ownership from specific types of people, most notably felons.  People that have been found guilty in a court of law of committing certain crimes, which we then now associate with not allowing them.  This serves many interests, as now they can classify all sorts of crimes with a specific tag, and now outlaw somebody from gun ownership, even if they have done nothing of a related manner.

But some people still don’t fall into that trap, how do you take care of that?  Rahm thinks he has an answer:

By using the no-fly list as an ad-hoc gun ban, they now have a convenient, unmonitored list that they can control at will.  It was reported that as of September 2007 there were 70,000 names on the no-fly list and that it was growing at approximately 20,000 names a month.  Now it’s over 1 Million! The public is not allowed access to the list so it is impossible to know if you are on it until you are not allowed to board a flight. Given some highly publicized problems with the list, is this really something that should be expanded to encompass gun control?

Given the way this will be sold to the public though, “keeping guns out of the hands of terrorists”, it would be easy to get a law such as this passed, after all, who in the general public would condemn keeping “terrorists” from owning guns?  But think about it, are just terrorists on this list?  How do you know?  Even a group that I am not one to quote much has a section for helping those with trouble on the no-fly list (hey, they’re right on this one).

In this, Rahm hopes to create a list that at-will, the Presidency, and it’s Attorney General can ban people from any form of firearm ownership, with no regulation, and no notification.  There is no real recourse once you are on it, and you can’t even find out ahead of time if you are.

  1. And the vague definition of terrorist is very disturbing. Cause right now I feel like conservative, God fearing people are deemed that by this administration.

  3. That man seriously makes my skin crawl. You know the Constitution if they have even read it means nothing to this administration. Anyone can be labeled a terrorist that is against their agenda.

  5. I have a fear that the new religion is not religion at all, but untested science. Science is now the new religion. This includes the quasi science that is not understood, like climate change. Oh, I believe climate change is happening, but it is not from carbon dioxide (C02 is needed for plants to make their cell walls and to create sugars through photosynthesis). C02 is not necessarily an evil polluter. I think the continent of floating garbage in the Pacific Ocean is more concerning than C02. Anyway, sorry for the tangent. I also believe that the religious, the American patriots, and even the average citizen will soon be persecuted if they even so much appear like they might become a threat to the corrupt administrations of the two factions of the one party system of Demi-Republi-crats.

  7. This is ridiculous. Define terrorists. And by the way, terrorists don’t go through legal ways of acquiring weapons to begin with. These “regulations” to benefit the safety of our nation won’t affect terrorists. He spoke of the killing on America’s streets of children. The statistics of children being killed by guns is being skewed because the definition of children is 20 years old and younger. Tune into http://womenofcaliber.wordpress.com for a post this weekend on firearms and children. Great post, keep it up!
