In 1938, prior to WWII, Hitler prohibited Jews from acquiring, possessing and carrying firearms and ammunition. What happened here a few years ago? Citizens were asked to turn in their guns, and some did. Will it get worse? If President Obama has his way, yes.

On January 16, Obama signed executive orders on gun control and then urged Congress to pass even stricter gun laws. Here’s the kicker: He surrounded himself with little children who had written letters to do something about the violence in schools. Who wants to debate with him with all the little ones around? If he is so eager to restrict guns, let him start in Chicago, the murder capital of the country. He used the Connecticut school massacre to promote a political ideology.

The executive orders are a way of getting around the Constitution and conditioning the minds of the people to accept the president saying, “Don’t worry about the supreme law of the land, and listen to me.”

And why is his administration arming itself to the teeth? Andrew Malcolm, writer for the Investor Business Daily noted on Feb. 8, “Homeland Security just placed an additional order for 21.6 million bullets… several other agencies of the federal government also began buying large quantities of bullets last year.” Why does the government need to be so heavily armed but not the people? The government is showing its tendency more and more to force its will on the people.
