JPFO Alert: Trampling 2nd Amendment Not Enough for Gun Ban Zealots

Today's JPFO Alert notes that the First Amendment is becoming almost as much a target for the gun ban zealots as the Second has always been.

And then remember that the Obama administration has asserted (and indeed exercised) the "right" to use armed drones to assassinate suspected "terrorists," without regard to their American citizenship. And people like Franchi accuse us of using "violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes"?

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, and Claire, you owe it to yourself to fix that.

Banning guns is just a necessary first step. The "liberal progressives" (i.e., fascists) want to control everything you do, say, and even think.

In their Orwellian double speak, an attack on a US embassy is a "spontaneous protest," a shooting spree by a Muslim shouting "Allahu Akbar" is "workplace violence," and a minor dispute over grazing fees (in which no one was killed or injured) is "terrorism." And the NRA is a "terrorist organization," but somehow the parent organization of Al Qaeda is not.

And trying to influence legislation is now "terrorism," instead of lobbying? All legislation benefits someone or other. A tax cut benefits the rich, increasing Social Security pensions would benefit retired people, tuition loans benefit college students, and so on. If you write a letter to your congressperson asking for increased funding for food stamps, or to prevent cuts in veterans' benefits, or for better enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act, are you a "terrorist" because you are trying to influence government action on behalf of a particular group?

And it's the usual double standard: leftists want to be free to demand anti-gun laws, or to criticize a Republican governor or senator, or to hurl epithets and make wild accusations. But if you express an opinion contrary to theirs, you are guilty of terrorism and/or "hate speech."
