Presidential Executive Orders: WILL GUNS GO THE WAY OF GOLD?

The recent Executive Order granting government officials unwarranted raises in a time of financial crisis had me thinking of the other issue facing America today: gun control and confiscation…

President Barack Obama has shown little or no reluctance to side-step the Constitutional duties of Congress to impose Administrative rules and regulations by Presidential fiat – knowing that any serious challenge to his actions would require an expensive and lengthy battle in the courts. And that given the vagaries of the Supreme Court as evidenced by the Roberts’ decision on Obamacare, the outcomes are uncertain given the ideology of the Court at the time. In an event, the damage would have been done … and possibly impossible to reverse.

For those who think it can’t happen …


Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 (equivalent to $371.10 today) per troy ounce. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by the recently passed Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, violation of the order was punishable by fine up to $10,000 (equivalent to $180 thousand today) or up to ten years in prison, or both. Most citizens who owned large amounts of gold had it transferred to countries such as Switzerland. <Source>

Bottom line …

We are in an era of unprecedented large-scale corruption driven by the ideology of the international socialists who want to diminish the power of the United States on the way to defeating our government, way of life and institutions from within.

The thought that Barack Obama actually cares about destroying the United States as his legacy is greatly overshadowed by his legacy on the world stage as the one that brought the United States to its knees to bow before the international socialist institutions as just another unexceptional member of the international community.

There is but two interrelated things that can spark a revolution against our government. One, the abrogation of the United States Constitution; and two, the confiscation of citizen arms in contravention of the Second Amendment. Both acts of government tyranny that would see the leaders prosecuted for high crimes and misdemeanors. 

Considering the alleged provision of weapons of war to Islamic terrorists and the cover-up of the Benghazi affair, impeachment might not be that far off.
