Shall not be infringedI had a website brought to my attention earlier this week and it was very alarming.  While I do not feel that this could get any momentum at the Federal level, I do believe it could get momentum in liberal controlled states.  If that is the case it could turn this country upside down in my opinion.  The website:  http://www.trayvonsamendment.com/  is rather disturbing to me and likely to any legal gun owner in this country.  On the website, they not only glorify a hoodlum but they are attacking the second amendment.  One part of the website is calling for an amendment to our Constitution that would not only repeal the 2nd Amendment but in many cases make criminals out of most gun owners.  Here is the meat of the proposal:

“The 12 provisions below will work to make America a more safe place by eliminating the obviously failed experiment that is the second amendment.

  1. 1.  The second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, being no longer necessary to a secure state is hereby nullified.

  2. 2.  The production and sale of new firearms, being defined as a rifle, pistol, or other gun, will be disallowed until a time in which the number of firearms in circulation is equal to 50% of the population as determined by the Census.

  3. 3.  No gun may reside in the same building as anyone who has failed a mental health evaluation, as performed by a medical professional, as approved by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).

  4. 4.  A mental health examination, as performed by a medical professional approved by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) must be passed in order to receive a firearms license.

  5. 5.  An income tax equal to 4% of an individual’s income will be assessed by all gun owners.  In states which were at any point in time a part of the Confederate States of America, this tax shall be equal to 10% of an individual’s income.  Taxes levied under this amendment shall be appropriated in equal portions to programs to expand Affirmative Action programs and begin to pay reparations to the descendants of African slaves.

  6. 6.  Any person making the choice to own a firearm must carry $250,000 worth of liability insurance for each weapon owned.  This insurance must be provided by a publicly owned insurance company to be established.

  7. 7.  All firearms must be retrofitted with both a global positioning transmitter as well as a fingerprint activated locking mechanism.  Failure to comply with this provision will result in a fine, prison time, and forfeiture of the privilege of firearm ownership.

  8. 8.  The National Rifle Association, Michigan Militia, and other “gun rights” groups shall be considered terrorist operations.

  9. 9.  United States Marshals will be randomly placed at various “sporting venues,” where a firearm could be otherwise legally discharged.  This could include publicly or privately owned venues where the following (but not limited to) take place:  hunting areas, shooting ranges.

  10. 10.  In a calendar year, no person may buy more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

  11. 11.  Assault rifles, semi-automatic, and automatic weapons, as well as those not fitted with GPS and trigger locking devices will be immediately seized by the government.  The owner will be compensated fair market value of the weapon, minus the cost of the seizure operation.

  12. 12.  President Obama will establish a Secretary of Firearm management.  This office will have final say over future gun regulation to prevent against rampant innovation that was not foreseen by the second amendment.”

Now, I don’t know about anyone reading this but I know it sent chills down my spine.  Another part of this wonderful (sarcasm) website is the Trayvons List http://www.trayvonsamendment.com/uncategorized/coming-soon-trayvons-list-gun-owner-registry/.  Not only is this another insane proposition but one that I could see needs to be fought by everyone not just law abiding gun owners.  This is what they have posted:

“In the coming days, we’ll be launching a user-submitted searchable database of gun owners in America.

This database will serve to a similar purpose as the Megan’s Law sex offender database.  While not all gun owners in America are criminals, a portion of them are.  This list will offer families the knowledge that a potential murderer, such as George Zimmerman (who was a “law abiding gun owner”) is living near where their children play, so that they may make the most informed decisions as to where their owners live.

Upon launch, we urge all viewers to immediately begin submitting names and photos of your neighbors who may own firearms, legally or otherwise.  It could save your family’s lives.”

Now after rereading this and letting it sink in, I think everyone should be concerned about how dangerous these two things could be to our way of life and the freedoms we have in this country.  People need to contact this website, comment on the posts, and share everything listed in here with friends and family to help protect them from this blatant invasion of privacy.  We need to stop this kind of nonsense before it ever has the ability to gain momentum.
