NRA: DOJ Memo Proves That Obama Wants To Confiscate Guns February 23, 2013

Obama & Co. are proudly announcing that they are not coming after your guns. If you believe that, then you've been drinking Dran-O.

The simple fact of the matter is this: They don't want you to own guns. They won't say that publicly, of course, because they would get their collective butts whooped at the next election (this happened in 1994). But that's what they really want.

Enter the NRA, an organization dedicated to protecting your Second Amendment rights. The organization leadership thinks that the smoking gun (pun intended) pointing towards universal gun confiscation has been discovered in a Department of Justice memo.

The National Rifle Association is using a Justice Department memo it obtained to argue in ads that the Obama administration believes its gun control plans won't work unless the government seizes firearms and requires national gun registration...

The nine-page document says the success of universal background checks would depend in part on "requiring gun registration," and says gun buybacks would not be effective "unless massive and coupled with a ban..."

[T]he NRA has posted the memo on one of its websites and cites it in advertising aimed at whipping up opposition to Obama's efforts to contain gun violence. The ad says the paper shows that the administration "believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation" and thinks universal background checks "won't work without requiring national gun registration" - ideas the president has not proposed or expressed support for.

"Still think President Obama's proposals sound reasonable?" Chris W. Cox, the NRA's chief Washington lobbyist, says in the ad.

It's important that you catch all the ramifications of what the memo is stating. And it supports the (correct) conservate narrative that universal background checks lead to universal registration. In turn, universal registration leads to universal confiscation.

This is why we oppose universal background checks. We know that they are popular, but that's never swayed us in the past.

Remember, the Second Amendment is clear: "...shall not be infringed."
