I got a reply from Vern Buchanan. What a tool. Typical canned response, he values my concerns and will keep them in close consideration as issues arrise. Blah blah blah.

Two Representatives Looking to Neuter the NDAA -- Amendment would protect you from indefinite detention

Representatives Justin Amash (R-MI) and Adam Smith (D-WA) are looking to fix one of the most troubling pieces of legislation that have passed during Barack Obama’s presidency.

As you know, at the end of last year, Congress passed and Barack Obama signed a defense authorization bill which contained two very dangerous provisions.

The first of these troubling provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA] is section 1021. It would allow American citizens to be arrested on American soil, detained indefinitely, tried in a military court, and deported to a Third World country for torture.

And all of this could be done without a trial!

An American could be detained if he “substantially supported” an individual who engaged in a belligerent act against the U.S. or its allies, whether knowingly or unknowingly. Thus, if you were to sell a gun to a Timothy McVeigh, unaware of his intentions, you could have all of your constitutional rights summarily taken away by Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder under the terms of this law.

The Amash provision would amend section 1021 by barring the U.S. military from putting any citizen into indefinite detention without a charge or trial.

Another provision in the NDAA [section 1022] actually requires the military to put certain civilian suspects into military detention. While the administration has waived this provision’s applicability to certain groups of people, the underlying law could still be enforced one day by the Obama administration (or a future administration).

The Amash amendment would repeal section 1022 entirely.

ACTION: Please click HERE to ask your representative to support the NDAA-neutering amendment to H.R. 4310.

Please do this for our hobby.

House is Set to Vote on Finding Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress
-- Regardless of outcome, GOA’s lawsuit forges ahead

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder this Thursday because of his role in suppressing and withholding Fast & Furious documents from congressional investigators.

A successful vote would represent the first time in history that the U.S. Congress has held an Attorney General in contempt.

The lead investigator, Rep. Darrell Issa of California, heads the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which last week voted to send the contempt citation to the floor of the full House.

Rep. Issa said that he’s committed to fixing the problems related to Operation Fast & Furious -- where the Obama administration helped gun smugglers sneak firearms south of the border in an apparent attempt to create a demand for more gun control laws in the U.S.

Remember, this is the Attorney General who stated in 1995 that he wanted an ad campaign to “brainwash” people into supporting gun control.

Democrats claim that Issa’s investigation is just a political “witch hunt.” But they ignore the fact that hundreds died while Holder lied.

“We know that there’s a lot of wrong things and we want to fix it,” Issa said. “[But] when the American people get lied to, there can’t be oversight.”

Issa told CNN he was surprised that President Obama exerted executive privilege in an attempt to seal up the requested documents. This move, he says, indicates the White House’s role in Fast & Furious “has been greater than previously acknowledged.”

This revelation -- that the President himself may have had more intimate knowledge of Fast & Furious -- is greatly motivating legislators on both sides of Capitol Hill. The ranking Senator on the Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, said that he had previously only traced the Fast & Furious program to an assistant attorney general.

But now Grassley says that Obama’s claim of executive privilege “raises the question of what does the president know and when did he know it.”

The contempt vote is expected to garner the support of some Democrats in the House. And for this reason, the White House might still try to work out a deal -- releasing some of the requested documents -- in an attempt to stave off Thursday’s vote.

Regardless, the Gun Owners Foundation’s lawsuit will continue to forge ahead. As we reported earlier this month, GOF has filed suit in the U.S. District Court for DC to compel the Justice Department to produce tens of thousands of documents related to Operation Fast & Furious.

If Eric Holder were to refuse the court’s demand for producing documents, then a “contempt of court” citation could land the Attorney General in jail.

ACTION: Click here to send a prewritten letter urging your Representative to support finding Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on Thursday.

PLEASE DO THIS! It takes < 1 minute.

Sanders has acknowledged he is a true socialist. Individual freedom and free-market capitalism are NOT issues he cares too much about. When he says "...congress must become more active in shaping exports" he believes government should control the market rather than let a free market work.

The irony is that many of the corrupt countries he cites have banned firearms so individuals may not defend themselves. That's the only reason there are atrocities and mass-murder. Armed people don't go down easily or quickly, particularly when government thugs are only armed with similar weapons.

More 2nd Amendment danger today.

From the GOA;

ObamaCare Decision Means Feds Will Continue to Cull Gun Owner Information Thursday, 28 June 2012 11:39


Led by feckless chief Justice John Roberts, the U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the ObamaCare law by a 5-to-4 decision, with Roberts voting with liberals Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.

While the decision means many harmful things for the American public, the Second Amendment community remains greatly affected, as the law requires Americans’ medical information to be culled and entered into a national database.

Centralizing these medical records will allow the FBI to troll a list of Americans for ailments such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to deny them their gun rights, in the same way that the Veterans Administration has already denied more than 150,000 veterans their right to bear arms.

Ironically, the Boston Globe last week reported how snarky liberals have been shocked to learn that hundreds of pages of their most intimate psychiatric notes have been posted into the database -- available for reading by hundreds (perhaps thousands) of strangers who work for their provider.

Now, their most embarrassing recollections are semi-public knowledge, and this was done knowingly and unapologetically by the people to whom they were spilling their confidences. Their privacy is gone, and there is nothing they can do about it.

This is the danger that gun owners face -- the sharing of medical information (like PTSD) that can be used in the future to deny them their right to purchase a firearm.

As for the ObamaCare decision itself, the Supreme Court ruled today that the Individual Mandate (requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance) is constitutional under Congress’ taxing power.

Thus, the government can force us to buy broccoli -- or anything else -- by simply imposing an enormous “tax penalty” for failing to do what the government orders us to do. There is NOTHING the government can’t now do as part of its taxing power.

Incidentally, ObamaCare was passed amid vigorous denunciations that Congress was imposing an enormous tax on the American people -- and on the middle and lower classes. Thus, by allowing the Obama administration to now argue that it “fooled us,” the Court becomes a co-conspirator in Obama’s fraud.

The culprits? Well, certainly the tepid, political-wind-monitoring Roberts, who has sold himself to receive favorable media coverage by the liberal left and to get invited to the swanky parties in our nation’s capital. Ironically, the Senate almost did away with the Senate filibuster in order to secure Robert’s confirmation to the Court.

If there is a silver lining to this decision, it is that the Court ruled that the Individual Mandate CANNOT be justified under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. This is good news for gun owners, as this text has been illegitimately expanded over the years to justify all kinds of unconstitutional laws -- including gun control.

Americans now know what we need to do: We need to repeal the Individual Mandate through a legislative rider (or amendment) to the must-pass Continuing Resolution, which Congress will take up around September 30. And perhaps, the ultimate way to get rid of ObamaCare is to get rid of Obama.

In the process, we will need to put a constitutional majority in control of the Senate and consolidate and even expand the anti-ObamaCare majority in the House.

But the first line of defense is to force a vote on must-pass legislation to repeal or “defund” the mandate. You can expect Gun Owners of America to be at the epicenter of this battle. So please stay tuned for updates!
