Obama’s Official Proposed Gun Ban List - Corrected
Editor's Note: This story misquoted the stated author by combining it with editorial comment by Red Flag. The response from the proported author is reprinted in full.
PHOENIX, AZ - Where did that email/article come from? A lot of people apparently got it before someone sent me a copy.
I’d like to write to whoever decided to create and circulate it.
I finally got it in this link from someone: http://americannationalmilitia.com/obamas-gun-ban-list-is-out
I did not write that inflammatory paragraph and its next sentence, even though someone has attributed that to me.
I did indeed post, in January 2009, the huge list of guns to be banned that came with it — which I took directly from a Democrat’s proposed bill, HR 1022, in the 110th Congress. That list is accurate (as it appeared in the link above, and as it remains posted on my website), including the blanket powers to be granted to the Attorney General, amounting to an extraordinarily broad firearms ban.
["Rifles (or copies or duplicates): M1 Carbine, Sturm Ruger Mini-14, AR-15, Bushmaster XM15, Armalite M15, AR-10, Thompson 1927, Thompson M1; AK, AKM, AKS, AK-47, AK-74, ARM, MAK90, NHM 90, NHM 91..."the list goes on at great length, including shotguns, handguns, gear, parts and much more, go to my website for the whole list]
That part is not invented. It was from Congress. In 2009. To everyone who wrote to me asking for the source, there it is.
No one, including the Democrats, expected that to have a chance of passage at that time,
under President Bush. It simply showed what they wished for, and they introduced it into Congress.
It is horrifying from a gun-rights perspective.
Whoever used my name without my permission or knowledge was at least clever.
My original posting is here, including the list of guns to be banned, and you can read it: www.gunlaws.com/GunLawUpdate3.htm.
If you own a gun, chances are yours is included, because along with the specific lists,
are features guns have, like grips (you read that right), and anything the AG might decide to add.
The Brady Gun-Ban Strategy, issued at the same time at the beginning of Obama’s first term, is here: www.gunlaws.com/BradyStrategy2009.htm
It did not circulate very far outside their own circles. The lamestream media basically ignored it because it was so incendiary.
This is why the left was so disappointed with Obama’s performance: he failed to act on their astounding rights-removal plans.
Their respect for the fundamental civil and human right to arms is lower than you can dream. Now, as far as I’m aware, no one outside his inner circle has seen his current plans.
Saying “Obama’s Gun Ban List Is Out” — and attributing that to me, is false. I would sure like to know who did that. But the list of guns was real, it was proposed in Congress almost four years ago.
Who knows what they’re planning now. Wait and see. I doubt it will be good, if your rights mean anything.
As before, I’ll be watching, and will continue to post these things as I find them.
I read the bills, and describe them in plain English. I get other insider info. It’s what I do. Get on my list on my home page — http://www.gunlaws.com
I have the UN Arms Trade Treaty spelled out in my reports 113, 114 and 116, here: http://www.gunlaws.com/PageNineIndex.htm
- 113- How treaties can trump the Constitution; 114- The UN treaty spelled out in plain English;
- 116- Mexico’s plan to use it against us, from our pro-rights Ambassador Donald Mahley.

Permission to circulate this memo gladly granted.
P.S. If that doesn’t worry you enough, scroll down to this item on my New Stuff page: GUN-RIGHTS LICENSING PLANNED, http://www.gunlaws.com/newstuff.htm also introduced into Congress, HR 45, at about the same time, the beginning of Obama’s term.
It would require a test to own a gun that no one could pass, plus biometric ID that doesn’t exist. It also had no chance of passage, but shows how they were thinking. It got no co-sponsors, was introduced by former Black Panther Bobby Rush, and what’s our Congress come to.

Catch-all category (for anything missed or new designs):

- (i) a folding or telescoping stock,
- (ii) a threaded barrel,
- (iii) a pistol grip (which includes ANYTHING that can serve as a grip, see below),
- (iv) a forward grip; or a barrel shroud.
Any semiautomatic rifle with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds (except tubular magazine .22 rim fire rifles).
A semiautomatic pistol that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine, and has:
- (i) a second pistol grip,
- (ii) a threaded barrel,

- (iv) can accept a detachable magazine outside of the pistol grip, and

Frames or receivers for the above are included, along with conversion kits.
Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will: Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any “semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General.”
Note that Obama’s pick for this office, Eric Holder, wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm in your own home. In making this determination, the bill says, “there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.” In plain English this means that ANY firearm ever obtained by federal officers or the military is not suitable for the public.
The last part is particularly clever, stating that a firearm doesn’t have a sporting purpose just because it can be used for sporting purpose — is that devious or what? And of course, “sporting purpose” is a rights infringement with no constitutional or historical support whatsoever, invented by domestic enemies of the right to keep and bear arms to further their cause of disarming the innocent.
