2nd Amendment Sneak Attack

CORRECTION:  Bill 1813 does not give the IRS the power to take away guns.  It gives the Secretary of Transportation the power to limit or restrict the transportation of guns.  I'd like to offer my sincerest apology for passing on incorrect information, and I'll strive to be more accurate in the future.  Thank you to those who wrote to point out the mistake - it is greatly appreciated.


It looks like the power of the IRS to revoke passports is merely a drop in the tyrannical bucket.
The Senate has voted to approve Bill 1813, which is now on its way to the House.  The insidious bill has so many attacks on freedom that the most serious one has been largely overlooked.
There are two attacks on gun ownership in this bill.  The text of the bill, all 1676 pages of it, can be found HERE.
The first attack on the right to bear arms is found on page 1323.
The Secretary may modify, suspend, or terminate a special permit or approval if the Secretary determines that—(1) the person who was granted the special permit or approval has violated the special permit or approval or the regulations issued under this chapter in a manner that demonstrates that the person is not fit to conduct the activity authorized by the special permit or approval; or (2) the special permit or approval is unsafe.

In the ambiguous language that the Congress so loves to employ in all things unconstitutional, we can translate that to the parental favorite, “Because I said so.”

The second attack on gun ownership is more subtle.

There is a stream of logic that you have to follow. 

First, if this bill passes, the IRS will have the authority to take away the passports of those whom they say owe more than $50,000 in taxes.  (The tax debt doesn’t have to be proven, mind you, the IRS simply has to accuse you of owing the money.)  You can find this section on page 1447 of the Bill.

When your passport is revoked by the government, you are suddenly on the “no-fly list”.

Membership in the no-fly club puts you on yet another list, as a potential domestic terrorist.

Domestic terrorists are not allowed to have guns.

Don’t believe me?  Listen to Raul Emanuel gloat of it.  He eloquently states “If you are known as maybe a possible terrorist you cannot buy a handgun in America.” (1:13 of the video)

Emanuel, the Mayor of Chicago and former Obama Chief of Staff, makes the top of my personal treason list for this statement. In his own words, "maybe a possible terrorist" means you shouldn't be allowed the rights guaranteed to you as an American. No proof necessary.

Bill 1813, ‘‘Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act’’, is chock full of new ways to take away our personal freedoms.  The bill would require “stalker boxes” on our vehicles, puts a huge number of restrictions on travel and transportation within the US, allows the government to revoke documents and licenses in ambiguous language and is, in essence, nearly 1700 pages of new restrictions. (You can find a summary HERE if you don’t want to read all 1676 pages).

A Call to Action

Did your Senator vote for this bill?  There’s a good chance he or she did, as only 22 Senators voted against it.  You can find out how your senator voted HERE.

The bill was sponsored by Barbara Boxer (California) and co-sponsored by Max Baucus (Montana), James N. Inhofe (Oklahoma), and David Vitter (Louisiana). For your convenience, I've included links to the contact information for each of these Senators.  Be sure and send an email to let them know how you feel about this new attack on freedom.

Email your Representatives and make it very clear that you consider this Bill an act of treason against the Constitution. This directory contains email addresses and contact information for all members of Congress.

Every bill that goes through Congress right now appears to hold another threat to the Constitution (if not multiple threats).  Every word needs to be carefully analyzed so we can fight these attacks.

Remain vigilant. 

Be vocal.



  1. sigh... each bill just gets worse and worse. Any person sadly thinking in the old "two party" theory is being sadly mislead. Both parties are out to screw us.

    1. AND WORSE AND WORSE......

      Thanks for your blog, Daisy. You are an astute observer and an articulate writer.

      And I will share :)

    2. Daisy, I just heard Alex Jones mention you by name on his show regarding this subject. Great JOB!!! I didn't realize you worked for him.

  2. Hi Matt, glad to see your catching on, there is NO two party system, just smoke and mirrors for those who still want to play the game! GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY TRASH! (politicians)

  3. Daisy,

    Thanks for your hard work. Am sending this on to others.

    Y'all Beware!

  4. What does a special permit have to do with gun ownership? This isn't about guns - the special permits in question are related to transportation permits for overweight loads. Here, from the text of the bill:

    15 ‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any other
    16 provision of this section, a State may issue special
    17 permits during an emergency to overweight vehicles
    18 and loads that can easily be dismantled or divided
    19 if—

    1. Hi, Todd. Thank you for stopping by!

      It's typical congressional ambiguity. The title of the section is "Firearms" and a bit above where you were reading is where you'll find what I am referring to. Scroll up!


    2. In the firearms section it clearly states that it does not prohibit or regulate transportation of a firearm. The special permits are for vehicles, not concealed carry.

    3. Daisy,
      This is a very loose, (emphasis on loose) interpretation. Todd is right, I don't see how this could possibly be used to affect your second amendment rights. My concealed carry allows me to purchase a firearm without a background check and if I did not have one then a purchase permit issued by my county sheriff is all that is needed not a permit from the Feds. Also, the purchase of a firearm is not contingent on a permit, if the purchase is between private parties.

    4. Even reading page 1320, this has nothing to do with limiting the purchase of or ownership of a firearm. Try to keep the sensationalism to a minimal, enough attacks on our Liberty already instead of chasing rabbits.

  5. And don't forget, if the gub'ment decides you're a 'potential terrorist', you're off on a permanent vacation to one of FEMA's new internment camps via night raid police and/or train boxcars with shackles. Look it up.


  7. we already have military check points inside the USA that are not on military reservations checking cars and American Citizens without a warrant or probable cause. If they cant take away our guns they will restrict our ability to get ammo or transport.

    I keep seeing or hearing references to the President somehow changing the 2nd Amendment with an Executive order. If the last couple of generations were truthfully schooled in the public/government education system of the US about the US Constitution and Amendments, together with the Federalist papers that were written by the same men who wrote the Constitution...this struggle between the government and the right of the private citizens to own their fire arms would not be even taking place. How many citizens know that Presidential 'executive orders' only have affect over those people who are under the 'authority' of the President. That is all persons employed by the 'federal government' not under the authority of the other two branches of the US Government! That means just about 'all' Federal employees are subject to Presidential 'executive orders'!! Not 'one' civilian citizen is subject to any 'executive order' by the President under the Constit...ution...not even the National Guard except when the Congress shall declare WAR at which time the President becomes Commander in Chief of 'all' military assets in the defense and prosecution of the 'Constitutionally declared law.' Look up Article II.
    Over a very long period of time the citizens and employees of the US Government have been gradually bamboozled, educationally deceived, brainwashed by many means including movies, intimidated and yes...even TERRORIZED by different means in the long attempt to 'negate' the US Constitution(especially the Bill of Rights)!!
    Some of it has been accomplished both through 'Foreign and Domestic' means and covert actions.
    The movie 'LINCOLN' is just another attempt to distort what the citizens will think and believe regarding the 'power' of the President. It hopes to make as many citizens as possible believe the slaves were freed by an 'EXECUTIVE ORDER' by President Lincoln. What gave the slaves after the Civil War their freedom was the 13TH AMENDMENT...and even then they still didn't have the Constitutional right to vote until Congress and the States ratified the 14TH AMENDMENT!!! The President has NO authority over any private citizen regarding the 2ND AMENDMENT. He does however have authority over almost all government employees(the exception being those who are employed under Congress or the Supreme Court) In other words he... could by 'executive order' disarm all 'Executive branch' employees'!!!
    It is damn well time for the citizens of these United states of the Americas to take the time to read your Constitution...know when they are being lied to...and stop those who have been working so tirelessly to subvert and 'TRANSFORM' your Nation!!!!!!
    It is now time to stand and be counted...or simply lose your 'rights and freedoms' and live under the same conditions most other 'subjects' of most other country's Authoritative or 'TOTALITARIAN' form of government forces on them!!!!!
