***Clinton To Register Guns By Executive Order***
National registration of all firearms as well as national registration (often called licensing) of owners of firearms will begin no later than January 20, 2001. It's not going to happen because of a law Congress will pass, but because of an executive order President Clinton will soon issue - the action of one man. He will most likely issue the executive order just after the upcoming presidential election regardless of who wins.
If you think my prediction is far-fetched, think again.
President Clinton and his supporters will continue to actively push Congress for so-called "reasonable, common sense" gun-control legislation. However, when President Clinton and his supporters don't get what they want from Congress in the proper constitutional legislative process, he will spit on the Constitution by issuing an executive order to get what they want anyway. He's done it before and he'll do it again.
Don't take my word for it. Take the Clinton administration's word for it. Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt said, "We've switched the rules of the game. We're not trying to do anything legislatively." [The Washington Times, June 14, 1999] Since President Clinton has grabbed millions of acres of land in the Midwest and West by issuing executive orders, why would he hesitate to issue an executive order to grab millions of guns?
Secretary Babbitt warned us in June of 1999. John Podesta, President Clinton's chief of staff, also warned us in November of 1999. "White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, frustrated with the balky Republican Congress, thinks it's time for President Clinton to show who's boss. How? Clinton plans a series of executive orders and changes to federal rules that he can sign in to law without first getting the OK from GOP naysayers. Since it's Podesta's idea, aides have dubbed it 'Project Podesta.' The namesake told our Kenneth T. Walsh: 'There's a pretty wide sweep of things we're looking to do, and we're going to be very aggressive in pursuing it.'" [Paul Bedard, U.S. News Online, November 1, 1999]
Paul Begala, as a senior adviser to President Clinton in 1998, gave us a big hint when he said, "Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool." [The New York Times, July 5, 1998]
No, it's NOT cool!!!!
Legislation that will stop President Clinton in his tracks and prevent future presidents from acting like kings is now pending in the U.S. House and U.S.Senate.
