This bill aims to strip "right wing extremists" of their 2nd amendment rights. Right wing extremists have been defined in the MIAC Report restoretherepublic.com... as veterans, advocates of the 2nd amendment, people opposed to the North American Union, "right to life" advocates, worshippers of Odin, and third party candidate supporters among others. H.R. 2159 gives the Attorny General of the US Eric Holder complete and sole discretion without due process to deny 2nd amendment rights to anyone deemed a "right wing extremist" whose definition is ever expanding. www.govtrack.us...
I just added H.R. 2401; No fly, No buy Act of 2009. This bill seeks to deny Americans 2nd amendment rights by linking the NICS background check system to anyone on the no fly list to deny their right to buy a firearm. People are put on the no fly list with no due process whatsoever and by extension will deny the 2nd amendment as well with no due process.
I hope anyone who signed on to this petition for 2159 feels the same for 2401. If not I will delete their name.

Here, maybe this will help cheer some of us up? For those who believe we only sit here and bemoan the iniquities of a corrupt government, actions are being taken. Whether it works or not remains to be seen.
The federal government no longer fears the people and they are showing their open blatant disrespect daily.

Americans have been desensitized so much that only few truly think for themselves anymore. I doubt any revolution would last longer than a few days. Any true threat to the infrastructure of the United States Government would be quelled in a short amount of time.
I do agree that its too late for anyone who wants to make change by means of force.
America loves to point the finger. The media perpetuates the false 'bad guy'.
The enemy is ourselves. And the first opponent you must always defeat is yourself.
H.R. 2159 would increase public safety by permitting the Attorney General to deny the transfer of a firearm or the issuance of firearms or explosives licenses to a known or suspected dangerous terrorist.
