Second Amendment Watch: SCOPE, Sen. Ortt decry Orwellian ‘Terrorist Watch List’ Deprivation of Liberty, 2nd, 5th Amendments!

January 21, 2016 62

A joint statement from SCOPE and NYS Senator Robert Ortt regarding the “Terrorist Watch List” was released last week:

President Barrack Obama plans to announce he will issue an executive order to expand background checks and increase enforcement of gun control laws in the name of safety for the people.

In so doing, government shall assume greater power against the people in deciding who shall not have the rights declared in the Second Amendment.

President Obama’s planned limitations will not be as sweeping as he once suggested; and many support his stated objective to solve the nation’s crime problem through limiting the Second Amendment. read more
