Thank Paul Ryan For Obama’s Gun Grab

When President Obama announces his latest extra-constitutional action – this time another infringement on the Second Amendment, taken in complete disregard for Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution – the Capitol Hill Republican establishment will have a big news conference and decry Obama’s executive overreach. 

But no matter what they say, they cannot escape the fact that they have empowered Obama to do what he is doing by their six-year long feckless failure to exercise their constitutional responsibility to use the power of the Paul Ryanpurse to fight Obama’s power-grabs and defend constitutional liberty. 

And beyond their six-year record of spineless wilting in the face of Obama’s onslaught against constitutional government there is the very real proximate cause of Obama’s latest assault on constitutional liberty – the passage of the 2,000-page Omnibus appropriation bill that effectively gave away all congressional leverage against the executive branch by funding Obama’s agenda for the rest of his term. 

Of course establishment Republicans, especially House Speaker Paul Ryan and the Senate’s Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, will claim they didn’t know Obama was going to try something like this when they passed the Omnibus. 

But that’s a lie. Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Before the Omnibus passed Obama said he was going to wring as much fundamental change as possible out of his last year in office. 

And the last time the Republican Congress passed a year-end Omnibus spending package Obama promptly attempted to grant “executive amnesty” to millions of illegal aliens. 

And within days of the passage of the Omnibus Obama said he would waive immigration restrictions on Iranians entering the United States to implement the disastrous nuclear weapons deal with Iran. 

And reports have been filtering out of the government for weeks if not months that Obama has already printed and plans to issue millions of work permits to illegal aliens. 

The list of Obama’s publicly announced extra-constitutional actions go on and on; but establishment Republicans say they didn’t know Obama was going to pull something like this gun grab? 

The good news is that, while there are an estimated 29.03 million golfers in the United States or less than 1 in 10 Americans, there are as many as 100 million Americans who say they own an estimated 270 million guns – that’s more like 1 in 3 – and they vote and are prepared to stand-up for their values and constitutional rights. 

And there are a few conservatives in public life – like Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert and Texas Governor Greg Abbott – who are prepared to fight Obama’s gun grab. 

But what are Ryan, McConnell and the rest of the Capitol Hill Republican establishment going to do to stop Obama? By passing the Omnibus they’ve already given away the most powerful tool – and the weightiest responsibility – the Constitution bestows upon them – the power of the purse.  

Wolves follow their nature and slaughter defenseless sheep – that’s their nature as wolves – and Obama is likewise merely following his nature to grab as much power as possible when facing-off against spineless establishment Republican sheep like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. 

So, when the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America.
