The Institute for Policy Studies is Coming for Your Guns

New Zeal

The far left Institute for Policy Studies, out of Washington DC, is the ideas factory for the Obama Administration.

Then Illinois state senator Barack Obama himself served on the founding board of IPS’ partner organization Demos. Obama’s short lived and still communist “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones, served on the same board some years later.

If you want to know what Obama will do tomorrow, read what IPS is saying today.

IPS wants to take your guns away. Because they know that if they can do that, American socialism is a slam dunk.

The IPS doesn’t just want to regulate guns. It wants to virtually eliminate them.

Here’s some socialist utopian insanity from the IPS website:

Sure, some people can use guns safely. Some people can also smoke crack safely, drink and drive safely and handle explosives safely. We don’t let them because too many other people can’t.

In the wake of every horrific school shooting comes the predictable call for gun control. Just as predictably comes the crazy counter-argument: If only the teachers had been armed, the shooting could have been prevented.

The simple fact is that guns are not compatible with 21st century civilized life. We should get rid of them. If we can’t get rid of them today, we should at least start the process of getting rid of them for the future. The world needs a future without guns.

No one should have guns. Not criminals, not responsible citizens, not the police. Guns should be safely locked away for use in a serious emergency and issued to police officers on a limited basis only when necessary. Even most police don’t need guns.

What about criminals? They have guns. Don’t we need guns to fight them with? Sure, maybe for a while. But after a hundred years with no guns, the supply will dry up even for criminals. We should be planning for the future, not arming for the present.

What about the Constitution? Gun rights are enshrined in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. Well, I have news for Constitutional fundamentalists: The US Constitution has been changed 27 times. It can be changed again.

The author then goes onto emphasize just how fragile the Second Amendment is:

Lest we forget, the Second Amendment was itself a change to the Constitution. That’s why we call it an “amendment.” It wasn’t there at first.

In fact, the Second Amendment only prevents the federal government from infringing “the right to keep and bear Arms.” States could have all the gun control they want if it weren’t for the later 14th Amendment that extends rights under the federal Constitution to apply to state actions as well.

Even this thin reed of gun rights has only existed since 2010. In the 2010 McDonald v. Chicago case, the activist US Supreme Court reversed 142 years of precedent to extend the meaning of the 14th Amendment to prohibit states from prohibiting guns…

It did so by a 5-4 margin. In other words, the nationwide Constitutional protection for gun ownership only came into existence in 2010 (not 1791) and even then by one single vote. So much for the everlasting, inalienable right to own a gun…Gun ownership is a great hobby. It was fun while it lasted. But easy access to guns is incompatible with daily life in 21st century society. There are no bandits on the prairie. There are no wolves at the door. It’s time to get rid of guns. If that means a 28th change to the Constitution, so be it. It’s worth it.

Don’t laugh gun owners. If IPS is saying this today, Obama and the Democrats will be planning to implement this tomorrow.

Obama may get to appoint two more Supreme Court judges before 2016. What’s the bet they will be strong anti-gun advocates?

The IPS and oObama are coming for your guns. You can take that to the bank.


  1. If Feinstein’s bill does not pass Obama will simply issue an executive order declaring gun registration and an assaut weapons ban the law of the land. That’s what DICTATORS do. You can bank on it. The statists cannot complete their Marxist take over of our country without confiscating our guns first. You can be certain that this is exactly what they are going to try to do. You can also expect more suspiciously timed mass shootings that end with some psychiatricly impaired pastsy left holding the bag. The accused scapegoat, or patsy, will conviently be found DOA at the crime scene. Initial eye witnesses will report multiple shooters and someone who was wearing a mask. (they always do) These shootings (aka psych-ops) are designed to help to create public support for gun control. The villians who are a part of the shadow government are playing the gullible public like a fiddle.

    • I don’t want to believe you but I’m afraid you’re right. I fear our future. I am a law abiding, tax payer. I work so the “takers” and “Obama supporters” can have their free ride. I will not voluntarily give up my firearms. From my cold dead hands will be my last words.

  2. The left is wealthy and they own our government and they run it like a crime family, so in the end we will fight, die or at best become slaves.

  3. If the Federal Government can’t identify, round up, and deport 11 million illegal aliens, how in the world will they identify and round up 300 million “illegal” gun owners?

    If the Federal Government can’t win the “war on drugs”, how in the world will our tyrannical Government the win the war on citizens?

    Why do they want to start a war with tax paying, law abiding citizens who are simply exercising their Constitutionally protected right to bear arms anyway?

    I think the Federal Government better think long and hard before they start another war they simply cannot win.

    They work for us, and yet they think they own us.

    Time to clean house in Washington DC.
