ALL GUN OWNERS ARE MENTALLY ILL?

January 21, 2014 @

By Michael Connelly

On June 25, 2013 I posted an article on this blog titled “Psychiatry as a Weapon of Tyranny” and I pointed out the history behind using an ever broadening definition of mental illness as a way to disarm and ultimately imprison the potential enemies of dictators throughout history.  I also pointed out that his technique was being used against American military veterans, and with the IRS now having access to the medical records of all Americans, this type of action would be broadened to include many more U.S. citizens.

          Now, Obama has issued two new illegal and unconstitutional Executive Actions on gun control that attempt to codify my predictions into law. The new EAs exempt the states from complying with Federal privacy laws and encourage states to disclose confidential medical information to the FBI so that more people can be placed on the NICS and prohibited from purchasing firearms. 

          This is despite the fact that in order to legally be placed on the NICS list an individual must be a convicted felon or legally adjudicated to be mentally ill to the point of being a danger to themselves or others.  Obama and the Veterans Administration are already bypassing the legal adjudication process when it comes to veterans and now with these new EOs will do the same thing to many other Americans.

          The Constitutional implications of this are obvious and rampant. First, Obama has violated both Article 1 and Article 2 of the Constitution that establish the balance of powers existing between the Congress and the Executive Branch of government. Under Article 1 the Congress has the exclusive power to pass laws and Article 2 requires the Executive Branch (the President) to enforce those laws. The President is routinely violating these provisions by choosing which laws to enforce, amending existing laws without congressional approval, and making new laws by Executive Order.

          Second, federal laws require the states and the medical community protect the privacy of individual medical records.  This has now been waived by the Obama Executive Orders that he had no constitutional authority to issue. This also violates the Fourth Amendment prohibition against illegal searches and seizures.

          Third, the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution prohibits the government from depriving citizens of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. By placing veterans and other Americans on the NICS list without a legal adjudication of mental illness causing them to be a danger to themselves or others they are being denied liberty and property without due process.

          Last, but certainly not least, the U.S. Supreme Court has twice ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, yet this right is routinely being denied to veterans and other Americans simply because Obama and his minions want all of us to be disarmed. A disarmed population is a population that cannot effectively resist tyranny.

          Since Congress has repeatedly refused to pass gun control legislation Obama is invoking the mental illness card to accomplish the mission. If you have ever told your doctor you have been depressed, ever suffered from PTSD after being in an accident or losing a family member, or even in the past taken certain types of medications for things such as ADD you may be denied your Second Amendment rights.

          The Obama administration has also changed the definition of adjudication of a mental illness from requiring an action by a board, commission, or other lawful authority to allowing anyone in the VA or other government agency to find someone incompetent or mentally defective.

There is no longer any due process required and while military veterans are still the primary target, the ultimate goal is the disarming of all Americans. This mirrors the actions of the Nazi party in Germany and other dictatorships that have used alleged mental illness to disarm, imprison, and control their populations.

The groundwork is being laid to have the very act of gun ownership be declared a mental illness. That is why the lawsuits we at the United States Justice Foundation (www.usjf.net) are working on for veterans are so critical. If the efforts of the Obama administration are successful at disarming veterans the rest of the population will also be vulnerable.

    The mentally ill are those who would cede their rights to other men and corrupt governments, and that includes the will and the means to defend their freedom and rights.Today there are a lot of mentally ill in our nation , but then there always have been. At least one third of the early population was mentally ill and supported remaining subservient to the Kings of Europe. It is the third that demanded and sacrificed for their God given rights and freedom, that created the greatest society ever known to mankind! And is about one third of us today that are blocking total tyranny by the leftist movement in this nation! Not one good thing has come from a leftist of any ilk, and certainly not from a corrupt psychiatrist!

    One must understand Chicago politics – 1st and foremost is the rule of the little black book. This rule requires someone seeking power to have some dirt on anyone and everyone. With the general lack of morals in our nation this is fairly easy to accomplish – 2nd rule is to have a means to bring transgressions into the public view – often and frequently as possible. 3rd rule is to use just enough pressure on those who could or would cause you problems to make them acquiesce to your will or demands. 4th rule – always make your potential adversaries for power look bad. 5th rule even when you’ve no dirt on someone – make up stories – get them published and shown on national tv. Hitler called this the art of telling the big lie – one so big that most would believe no one could lie like that – therefore it is accepted as being true.
    Thus no one in Congress or the courts (already loaded) – in MSM would dare to oppose the current WH want-a-be dictator without the risk of exposure. Especially since he employs the best attorneys money can buy.
    Sadly like those in FL – counting is a short-coming – as there are more gun owners that will not go peacefully to the gas chamber or other means of death.
    This is a great nation – however, it is seriously time to turn off the boob tube – stop going to the mall – remember this nation was founded upon God’s Law by the best of the best minds in the world at the time – (Read “The Majesty of God’s Law” published 1996) and will endure only as long as men and women are righteous and obedient to the Commandments.

    Progressives are mentally ill. ALL recent mass shootings at schools, shopping malls, movie theaters, etc. are all the subjective proof that is needed. The progressives are trying to shift the spotlight away from themselves.

    A liberal is mentally ill but curable. Once they metastasize into a progressive they are in the final incurable fatal stage like pancreatic cancer. Then all that can be done is to make sure they stay on their anti-psychotic meds and that they do not own or have access to firearms.

    Look, if gun violence is the real issue and mental illness a contributing factor, the answer is simple.
    Since the VAST majority of gun violence is committed by Democrats or their offspring, you simply need to check voter registrations and remove guns from the hands of Democrats…
    As far as the mentally illness aspect goes, it will be accomplished at the same time because as everyone knows, simply registering as a Democrat confirms that an individual is mentally unstable and should not possess a firearm…

    Hoplophobia, the morbid fear of guns, is a real, extremely dangerous, widespread and clinically recognizable complex specific phobia with a number of unique characteristics, described. It has caused and continues to cause grievous harm in America.

    When the Government takes the guns from the people then the government will control the people with their guns. Obama’s soul intent from day one is to destroy America from within turning America into what she was never ment to be, a socialist communist third world country ruling her with an iron fist of communism. Obama is a Pathological Narcissist descrbed as such by Dr Vaknin, a world renown psychiatrist, a specialist on narcissim. Read (Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer) by Ali Sina, Dr Vaknin describes in depth the narcississtic mind set of Barack Obama. Obama is the one that is mentally ill/unfit, not veterans who fought wars (with guns) to protect America and her freedoms, with out them America wouldn’t be. You can find (Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer) at http://www.faithfreedom.org/obama.html, is a long read but is well worth it. The Life Blood of America does not flow through the veins of Barack Obama, it never has and it never will.

    It has to be his desire to become dictator of the US….forgive me, he has already become the first dictator. If guns are bad why not knives (one of his racial components fear being cut above all forms of violence)? If knives why not forks…sharp points you know? Or we could make an argument for trees since they have limbs that can made to have a sharp point, remember spears? One side of this discussion is in fact ill and it’s not the gun owners. I predict when the fecal material hits the rotary oscillator they’ll wish they had a dozen guns.

    Over 100,000 veterans have had their firearms confiscated under the disguise of having their Second Amendment rights revoked. THIS IS OUT RIGHT CONFISCATION OF FIREARMS. It does not matter who the person is or was. The government is using soft words so the masses won`t up rise and will also think it is a selected group of veterans that are mental ill.

    Where are the pro-gun organizations, Where are the 1 hundered million firearm owners that claim, give me liberty or give me death or say come and take them. I will tell you, they are under their beds shaking in fear that it won`t be them next, but it will.

    What group of people are next? If you think it is going to stop at the veterans you are only fooling yourself. Over 100.000 thousand veterans today maybe 1 million non-veterans tomorrow. Since it has been easy to confiscate firearms from veterans just think how easy it will be to confiscate firearms from we the people.

    When the government takes guns away from citizens it is confiscation no matter how the government words it.

    Since taking office, the Obama administration has confiscated more than 100,000 veterans firearms. If that doesn’t make you furious, I’m not sure what will!

    CONFISCATION IS HAPPENING NOW TODAY IN THE USA, QUIETLY!!!

    The Farmer Doctrine is as follows: Be it resolved that an attack one group of guns and gun owners shall be considered an attack on all guns and gun owners. Therefore we should all rise to the defense of each other.

    There is one thing we can count on, the gun confiscation lobbies will never let up as they explore any and all avenues to accomplish their goals of total gun confiscation.

    2nd amendment gun nuts that think the second amendment pertains to an individual is laughable.
    Sorry the 2nd would say Persons not People if it applied to individuals.
    A bunch I addicts talking is laughable. Nothing well regulated about individual gun ownership off ones property.
    The 2nd doesn’t no matter how much u want protect the individual outside a well regulated militia which we don’t have. Morons. U moron gun owners will be the only ones fighting when they take ur guns and put
    Them in an armory where they are supposed to be. U are not judge jury and executioner. If the
    Second was abolished it wouldn’t change anything. You weaken your stance against tyranny by proliferating guns. You morons can’t invoke the 2nd cause u destroyed the intent of it. U can’t regulated ur own firearms.
    Their is no such thing as responsible gun owner. Truly pathetic u addicts are. Tyranny u are afraid of lol it
    Has already happened and ur guns were used against u to suppress u. Lmfao. Small minded addicts. It is easy to plan for a populace that has guns already . Like u think the right to bear arms would stop tyranny. Morons.

    The erosion of oress freedom or the 4th,8th etc etc are far more fundamentally damaging. Where are the states well regulated militias to protect us from federal tyranny? Oh that’s right gun addicts traded in our militias for individual gun ownership. You gave away the 2nd stop blanking the govt. Gez. Waaaaaaa

    Article.I.Section.Section.8. of the Constitution allows the Congress to call forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions.
    To provide for organizing, arming,and disciplining the Militia, and for governing such Part of them that as may be employed in the service of The United States reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the officers, and Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress. Now that is the complete pronouncement on the various States Militias as required by the Federal Government in Article.1.Section.8..
    Then the Constitution of The United States in Amendment II. that: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, PEOPLE BEING CITIZENS OF A POLITICAL UNIT
    , AS A NATION OR STATE. PEOPLE ARE REFERRED TO AS PERSONS OF A COMMUNITY SUCH AS ANY COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES. PEOPLE ARE FAMILY MEMBERS, RELATIVES AND ANCESTORS. IN CONSIDERATION OF ABOVE DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THE WORD PEOPLE MEANS, AND THIS ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY, EVEN YOU MJ CAN SEE THAT PEOPLE ALSO REFERS TO PERSONS AND INDIVIDUALS. So the Second Amendment does refer to individual people or persons. So you will have to agree that the Second Amendment does mean each and every Citizen.
    So the people of The United States do have the right to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS AND THIS RIGHT SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED BY ANY RESTRICTIVE LAW OR PRONOUNCEMENT WHATEVER AND THAT INCLUDES THE BOLSHEVIK COMMUNIST OBAMA AND HIS BOLSHEVIK REGIME.
    In America the only way to get a weapon is to buy it. The Federal Government won’t issue one to you and the several state Governments won’t issue a weapon so we must BUY THE WEAPON AND IT SHOULD BE AN ASSAULT WEAPON SINCE THE SECOND AMENDMENT STATES THAT WE THE CITIZENS OF THE SEVERAL STATES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR SECURITY. ALSO, MJ, YOU MAKE AN ASSERTION THAT THE WEAPONS BE KEPT IN AN ARMORY. WHAT IF THE VERY STATE YOU LIVE IN IS THE OFFENDER AGAINST YOUR LIBERTY? DON’T YOU THINK THAT THE ARMORY WOULD BE GUARDED AGAINST YOU WHEN YOU GO TO GET YOUR WEAPON? THAT’S WHY THE FOUNDING FATHERS THAT THE PEOPLE SHOULD KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. IT IS OUR DUTY AS CITIZENS OF WHATEVER SOVEREIGN STATE WE AND YOU,MJ, LIVE IN TO DEFEND IT AND KEEP IT SECURE AND WHEN A NATIONAL WAR OCCURS THEN SOME OF THE MILITIA DEFENDS THE UNITED STATES IN A GENERAL WAY.
    You also ask, mj, where are the several State’s well regulated militias? Well, that would be the millions of hunters in The United States, the many millions of VETERANS FROM VIETNAM, FROM THE GULF WAR ONE, THE SECOND WAR WHEN WE ATTACKED IRAQ AGAIN AND STILL HAVE SOME TROOPS THERE. THEN THERE ARE THE SEVERAL HUNDRED TROOPS STILL IN AFGHANISTAN. SO WITH ALL OF THOSE TRAINED AND COMBAT EXPERIENCED VETERANS AND HUNTERS I PRESENT TO YOU THE AMERICAN MILITIA, MANY MILLIONS STRONG AND ALL ITCHING FOR A FIGHT TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE ELITIST/ZIONIST/BOLSHEVIK/COMMUNISTS. IF THINGS CONTINUE TO GO ROTTEN IN AMERICA AS THEY ARE NOW THE BLOOD WILL START TO FLOW AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT OBAMA, SCHUMER, REID, PELOSI, BOXER, FEINSTEIN, BIDEN, McCANE,OR ANY OTHER TRAITOR IN OUR GOVERNMENT CAN DO ABOUT IT. ALL OF OBAMA’S PRIVATE ARMY; SEIU, ACORN, THE COMMUNIST POLACK TRUMPKA AND AFL-CIO, AND ANY OTHER BOLSHEVIK/COMMUNIST UNION CAN DO. THEY WILL PROVIDE A LITTLE TARGET PRACTICE FOR OUR WELL REGULATED MILITIA.
    YOU ALL SHOULD DO A LITTLE STUDYING ABOUT THE CIVIL WAR AND IN DOING THAT YOU WILL FIND WHAT THE UNITES STATES REALLY IS MADE OF. I TELL YOU, IT IS FRIGHTFUL. ONCE THE BEAST IS CALLED OUT IT DON’T QUIT UNTIL THE WHOLE NATION STEPS TO IT’S OWN FRANTIC PULSE BEAT.
    MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND THE UNITED STATES AND MAY WE RID HER OF HER ENEMIES. KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY AND YOUR WEAPONS WELL OILED, FOR WE FEAR NOT BATTLE NOR DEATH.

    I see that people are advocating targeting Dems and libs because it is being said that most people who go on shooting sprees are Dems. I can’t argue with that, but if so, I’ve also noticed that almost all of them are males. I can’t think of a case where a female went on a shooting spree. So when we move to disarm the Dems of any weapons we have, we should also do the same for males. Keeping all firearms in the hands of females only is sure to help.

    Would you please cite your references and provide links to sources. What are the EO numbers? How about a direct link to the EOs. How about White House, VA or Federal Register links so I can read the new mentally incompetent or mentally defective definitions/requirements.
