DHS to 'Expand and Formalize Coordination' on Gun Control Efforts
The Weekly Stndard ^ | 1/16/13 | MICHAEL WARREN

Posted on 01/16/2013 2:26:22 PM PST by Nachum

Janet Napolitano, head of the Department of Homeland Security, released a statement Wednesday saying she is "proud to support" the Obama administration's efforts to "combat gun violence in our country." Here's more from Napolitano's statement:

In the aftermath of the tragic Newtown shooting, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), together with the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the FBI have worked to identify measures that could be taken to reduce the risk of mass casualty shootings. In the coming days, DHS will expand and formalize coordination of ongoing efforts intended to prevent future mass casualty shootings, improve preparedness, and to strengthen security and resilience in schools and other potential targets.

Oh good. Now they can send VIPR squads to schools and molest the children with backscatter radiation and cavity searches.

Too bad she’s not interested in the weapons on the border or the criminals the government is selling them to.

Looks like Usama bin Laden and the Marxist scumbags are together, for now, succeeding in the destruction of the Constitutional United States.

Tennessee is in the fight. Our state Rep just Proposed a TN bill on this issue.

Saying Americans should be able to “defend themselves from tyranny,” TN state Rep. Joe Carr said today he is proposing a bill that would allow federal agents to be arrested for enforcing new gun-control laws.

Carr, a Lascassas Republican, is sponsoring legislation that would charge federal agents with a Class A misdemeanor for enforcing or attempting to enforce a federal law or executive order that bans, restricts or requires registration of any semiautomatic gun, accessory or ammunition.

Formalize Coordination' on Gun Control Efforts

Great News Comrades!

I'm gonna guess that DHS will be handing out those 1.4B rounds, recently purchased, to millions of patriot Americans for training purposes at brand new shooting ranges they're undoubtedly planning to build across the nation! Just imagine that, not only will this strengthen our ability to defend the homeland, but also put foreign powers, criminals, and illegals on notice, while employing thousands of American workers!

What a guy our Comrade Obama is, No!

I believe I recall stories how TSA employees were being used at school dances last year. Wait, just wait until the guards at our schools are TSA employees; of course with a "security" office in each school where children will be coerced to rat out their parents. It is already bad enough in schools with unionized socialist teachers that stifle conservative thought and indoctrinate our children with Marxist ideology. Image in the combined intelligence between stupid $hit teachers and glorified rent-a-cops. Of course all of the GBLT clubs in our schools forms the basis of "Obama Youth", with their rainbow uniforms and unicorn unit patches on their upper arms.

All of this paid by our tax dollars.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it. . . There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be
much easier to deal with.”

(”Atlas Shrugged”, 1957)

The NRA should be very clear that by embracing this gun control effort, with the next Republican congress and president, the DHS will be abolished.

The message is not to their political hack leaders, but to the bureaucrats of DHS. Do not do this, or you will lose your jobs. And there will be no other government jobs for you.

Make it personal.

That DHS spent two years in Sandy Hook running training drills http://www.ct.gov/demhs/ical/eventDetail_page.asp?date_ID=CBC7CBCBCC83CDC9CC might be widely known here but I, being behind the curve, just learned about it at
http://beforeitsnews.com/conspiracy-theories/2012/12/what-was-dhs-doing-in-shady-hook-false-flag-two-years-in-the-making-or-department-of-homeland-security-fail-2446904.html

There are two Sandy Hook scenarios suggested there. False flag is one and another disastrous DHS program is the other. At this point it’s a coin toss.

Based on their history, I’m leaning towards ‘another disastrous DHS program’ explanation although I don’t understand the practicing to fail idea presented at beforeitsnews.

I do think it’s safe to say it’s not likely DHS will get the coordinating right, either.

Nor try to make it any less painful.

LOL, so the Dept of Mall Cops are going to ‘do’ guns and security. If their track record is any indication of success.... At ant rate, they should compare notes w/ the ATF before they perform any PR raids. That Waco place didn’t work out nearly as well as they thought it would. Holy Cow, just what we need, a bunch of ill trained border line criminals/incompetents running around w/ guns and badges pretending to be significant.

Forcing kids to be accustomed to the TSA at every turn in their travels. They aren’t worried about the old folks.. Too late for us. They’ll kill us all off through 0bamacare ‘death panels’ anyway.

Just a matter of time before these Brown Shirts come pounding on your door in the middle of the night.

I wish I was joking or being hyperbolic.

Janet Napolitano sits on the board of the IACP. International Association of Chiefs of Police. Her teaming up with local law enforcement is not a good thing, the feds having their hand in local law enforcement.

Too many police chiefs are bought and paid for union political appointees who are anti-gun and will go along with what the feds want.

This is something to keep an eye on. Obama was once on the board of the Joyce Foundation which also has ties to the IACP.

I bet she has been in touch with some of Janet Renos goon squads from Waco.
Alaska has a bill about to be passed, ANY person trying to enforce ANY of Obamas 23 executive gun orders will be charged with misdemeanor.

Last I heard Wyoming will arrest them and charge it as a felony.

I hope we see HS met at borders and escorted back out.

And if they do try to perform their Gestapo tactics they get ratted out, they are disarmed and blacklisted to never return to that state again or risk incarceration.

Parallels:

Hitlers reign= Germany was the Fatherland
Stalins reign= Russia was the Motherland
King Obamas reign= The USA is the Homeland

Oh. Great just like Nazi Germany.

Meanwhile commiefornia( yes I still live here0 has decided illegal aliens and the rest of us will be safer when they're issued California Drivers Licenses. No idea where the logic is in this but it's seemingly parallel logic to what DHS may attempt to do.

Maybe they'll hire the illegals to try to disarm a lot of gun owners? Hell they have the F&F weapons already and the Mexican cartels have full sway in certain bankrupt counties and cities. Nevermind though, Gov Moonbeam wants all guns and frisbees collected and no holes dug at the beach.
