ALL ... Please re-read this entire thread so you can understand who was the first POTUS in U.S. History to sign the FIRST de facto Gun Ban in U.S. History ...

So-Called Uber-Conservative Ronald Reagan ... with the misnamed and misrepresented legislation known as the FOPA of 1986 (Firearm Owners Protection Act) ...

The Hughes Amendment that was "Deemed Passed" by then acting Speaker of the House & STILL Ethically Challenged Charles Rangel (D-NY) but was never actually passed... expedited the FOPA to Ronald Reagan's desk where he eagerly awaited the Legislation he & the NRA and every surviving POTUS at the time lobbied congress for ...

The NFA (National Firearms Act) was passed by FDR & His Congress in 1934 when they realized that they had no constitutional authority to BAN any type or class of weapon... although they did have dubious authority under the 16th Amendment & elsewhere in the constitution to TAX anything... as we have seen most recently with ObamaCare which the SCOTUS has ruled is in fact ANOTHER OBAMA TAX ...

What the NFA actually did was impose a mandatory FEDERAL REGISTRATION of Class III Weapons and a astronomical for the time $200.00 Luxury TAX on them ... a tax that stands today but due to things like the Federal Reserve Act and the Federal Government being able to print money backed by air, a handshake and a teleprompter $200.00 is not so much anymore...

Until Ronald Reagan was POTUS you could buy a Full-Auto Defensive Weapon or Collectors item for not much more than its semi-auto version...

I am all for Impeaching Obama for things like Libya & Fast & Furious and not being held to at least the same standard John McCain was with respect to his eligibility, signing the NDAA, and using the Bully Pulpit to push for the trampling of the Second Amendment and other nonsense ... but lets hold accountable those that are actually responsible for abominations like the FOPA of 1986 ...

As I said earlier short of impeaching Obama & successfully convicting him, biden, Axlerod, Pelosi, Reid and others for treason, we need to focus on getting individuals whom will support the Unabridged Second Amendment in 2014 & 2016 ... with the current makeup of this Congress, SCOTUS & POTUS I do not see a winning path to repealing the Hughes Amendment/FOPA of 1986 ...

ALL of the U.S. House of Representatives is up for re-election every two years...
1/3 of the U.S. Senate is up for re-election every two years...

AND our respective State, County, Local and other municipalities Representatives come up at similar intervals, we need to exponentially expand & educate our base of supporters of the "Unabridged Second" Amendment...

We must all wake up every day & ask ourselves what have we done or will we do today, this week, last week etc., to EXPAND & EDUCATE our base of supporters of the "Unabridged Second" Amendment?

Don't assume that current members of Congress, Media, or General Public know what the FOPA of 1986 IS or the shenanigans of how the Hughes Amendment was passed to bring it to fruition to begin with...

A Plethora of the General Public think Machine Guns were BANNED in the 1930's ... EGREGIOUSLY TAXED & MANDATORY FEDERAL REGISTRATION YES, BANNED NO...

We can't get more on our side until we & those that we would like to join us know the facts...

Our Fundamental, Pre-Existing Rights, PROTECTED, NOT CREATED, by the Second Amendment has been incrementally INFRINGED upon since at least the 1930's primarily due to the IGNORANCE & NON-ACTION of the voting/failing to vote general public ...

Nowhere in the Second Amendment does it state "Shall Not Be Infringed" ... Except ANYTHING...

It is the single most unambiguous Amendment and there is a reason why...

Only the 3rd, 5th and 14th amendments were/are quantified with a ... according to Law Clause which would give Congress the ability to expand upon what the limits thereof are...

Yes SCOTUS, Congress & POTUS IS WRONG there are NO LIMITS to the Second Amendment ... (Its no wonder Feinstein's latest second amendment infringement legislation (2013) submitted is titled in part "To Ensure The Second Amendment is not without Limits"...)

IF there were any limits how would WE THE PEOPLE ever be able to remove or replace or repel a tyrannical Government which is the key tenet of the Second Amendment; without the "Unabridged Second Amendment" ?
