A few days ago, our President issued two executive orders on gun control, while five, six, seven warships (each a flotilla with supporting assets) lay in the Mediterranean Sea and wait for his word. A "shot over the bow", he calls it. There are some though, whom consider it an act of war. The fact that Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea have allied is cause enough for concern, but that's another matter. The U.K. isn't prepared to commit, and who knows if France is sure. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is adamant, because they fear the fire that surrounds. But that isn't what's important, I believe we may have entered into a new Tepid War, one that could heat up quickly. Let us not be so arrogant to presume we cannot be over-run by foreign powers.

To my first point, I am in opposition to both executive orders. The order that restricts ownership of trusts and corporations is ill conceived and in violation of existing case law. On the order that bans the importation and re-patriation of military firearms, the President has behaved criminally. From the establishment of our Constitution and through numerous court rulings, the right of the people to keep and bear arms has been held to a high standard. Roughly, Every American Citizen may own firearms that have been used by a soldier in an army. Under the duress of "gangs" and Depression Era government expansion / encroachment, laws were enacted that restricted concealable and automatic firearms. "Mufflers" or silencing devices were added, as none of these were considered belonging to the common soldier.

Are the tens of thousands M1s in South Korea the target? They are ours. If South Korea no longer needs them, we deserve them back. They've each been paid for more than once and they should be given back to the States proportionately, for distribution to the citizens. It has been proven throughout history, instituted by our Constitution, and upheld by our courts; the individual is responsible for his/her fate. The federal government does not have the authority to regulate the preservation of self or family.
