The Return of Change.gov

November 17, 2008

It’s baaaaaaaack!

After it was “disappeared” for a while after the election, Mr. Obama has put his agenda back up on his change.gov website. Let’s examine it, shall we?

From the Urban Policy Agenda:

Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.

Remember what happened to Joe the Plumber? Mr. Obama was campaigning in Joe’s neighborhood, and he asked Joe to ask him a question. Joe asked his question, Mr. Obama answered with a Socialist comment, and then Joe’s life was destroyed. His federal records were accessed by at least 6 different people. They illegally looked at his tax records, his child support records, everything. They then leaked it to the press, who published it for the world to see. What will happen when it’s you? What happens when any federal employee can find out about your personally owned firearms?

Here’s the gun show loophole, for those who don’t know. Until Mr. Obama makes his judgment from on high, in some states it’s legal to bring a firearm to a gun show and sell it to another private individual with paperwork or background checks–you know, basic commerce between folks. Apparently that’s evil. It was going away regardless–McCain had said he’d close it, too, so use the chance you have–go to a gun show before January 20, 2009. Pay cash.

Childproof guns? Super. Responsible gun owners already lock up their weapons when not in use and educate their children about them. What Mr. Obama is talking about here is keeping guns locked at all time. I don’t have children–if I have to keep a childproof lock on any firearms I may own, their value in self-defense goes down to their utility as clubs.

The AWB? Keeping the world safe from varmint rifles with scary black composite hardware. Stock up on 30-round mags, ammo, and other accessories for your evil black rifle. They’re about to be worth a fortune. 

Here’s your mandatory volunteerism and a 300% increase in the size of Americorps.

From the Homeland Security Agenda:

Give Real Authority to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Board: Support efforts to strengthen the Privacy and Civil Liberties Board with subpoena powers and reporting responsibilities. Give the Board a robust mandate designed to protect American civil liberties and demand transparency from the Board to ensure accountability.

Canada has a human rights “star chamber” that was used to harass bloggers like Ezra Levant. Coming soon, to a country near you…Under what part of the United States Constitution is this even legal?

This isn’t paranoia. This isn’t a right-winger’s black helicopter fantasy of what the future may hold. This is Mr. Obama’s very clearly stated policy and agenda. During a time of two wars and unprecedented economic difficulty, Mr. Obama is going to concentrate on reigning in the rights of the American people.

Congratulations, 52! We’re about to have change we can believe in. Hugs and kisses, 48.
