I wonder if Obama plans to increase his...

Secret Service protection. Because, if he attempts ANY assault on the Second Amendment, he is going to need it.

this is moot.

it's invalid. not if one believes in the right to self-protection. this is where agorism comes in real handy. i don't expect the majority to comply. not with this.

the problem with fox news, and all the others, is they assume the people are going to go along with these dictates. they have the opinion that government say-so is all there is, whether we like it or not. they will never suggest ignoring the "law". selling fear. that's all they know.

True!

The same type of scenario occured during the depression in 1933. Roosevelt wanted Americans to turn in their gold. Only about 10% turned in their gold.

Most people aren't aware of this statistic..

There is still alot of gold out there that wasn't turned in and as you stated so eloquently, most americans are NOT going to turn in their guns.

Finally, the executive order in recent years has been grossly misused and abused by dictators like Obama and Dubya...

Executive Order:

U.S. Presidents have issued executive orders since 1789, usually to help officers and agencies of the executive branch manage the operations within the federal government itself. Executive orders have the full force of law,[1] since issuances are typically made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress, some of which specifically delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation), or are believed to take authority from a power granted directly to the Executive by the Constitution. However, these perceived justifications cited by Presidents when authoring Executive Orders have come under criticism for exceeding Executive authority; at various times throughout U.S. history, challenges to the legal validity or justification for an order have resulted in legal proceedings.

does anyone realize....

....that the Vatican also is for the disarmament of free peoples? This constant portrayal that Fox News/right wing Christian Republicans are for 2nd Amendment rights so they can defend themselves an Obama IRS, not a John Boehner/John McCain IRS, is stupid!

Abolition of the right to own a firearm is a bi-partisan agenda!!!
