The Democrat Congress and Barack Obama just can’t keep their eyes off of Americans’ guns. Though they are allowing and open invasion of the United States at the southern border, something they should be dealing with according to law, they are unconstitutionally focusing on their continuous violation of the Second Amendment. This week, the new gun confiscation bill introduced in the Senate on Tuesday claims to be aimed at removing guns from domestic abusers, but since no authority was given to the federal government to restrict or regulate arms, it is unconstitutional on its face. Given the U.S. Supreme Court in Castle Rock v. Gonzalez ruled that the state owes no duty to protect citizens from each other, the government has no authority involving itself in domestic violence matters or child support enforcement matters.
The new bill, termed the “Domestic Violence Gun Homicide Prevention Act of 2014”, is cosponsored by U.S. Senators Murphy, Schatz, Gillibrand, Kaine, Levin, Durbin, and Warren, all Senate Democrats with a long history of supporting anti-Second Amendment, pro-gun control and pro-gun confiscation measures. The legislation would institute and fund a series of grants, administered by the Director of the Office of Community Policing Services of the Department of Justice. These grants would be distributed to states who have domestic violence gun prohibitions and enforce regulations that include the seizure of firearms in cases of domestic abuse.
What happens when one is falsely accused of domestic violence??? According to dozens of empirical studies, (www.saveservices.org), over 75% of domestic violence allegations are false. They are usually made in the heat of a divorce battle to obtain unfair advantage in the divorce and child custody dispute. Will the falsely accused have to take their cases to trial and overwhelm the legal system to protect their Second Amendment Rights? Does the man get his guns back if falsely accused? Does the false accuser go to jail for false allegations/perjury? Does the false accuser lose custody of her children for making false allegations? I am sure that these new domestic violence grants will be once again one-sided and discriminatory against males–males who make up 40% of domestic violence victims according to the U.S. Dept. of Justice.
