While the “Assault Weapons Ban” and federal registration scheme pushed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has already sparked a nationwide outcry against Washington’s latest attempt to further infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, the Obama administration has made clear that its own full-fledged assault on Americans’ gun rights aims to go even further. According to news reports citing officials, a task force led by Vice President Joe Biden is developing a gun control “package” including broad executive and legislative actions that could gut what remains of the Second Amendment. Even some Democrats have called the proposals “extreme.” 

The Obama administration and its “fusion centers” were working with the privately owned Federal Reserve as well as state and local law enforcement to spy on “Occupy Wall Street,” according to heavily redacted Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents recently released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). While the controversial “Occupy” movement sparked serious concerns, the actions and lies of authorities detailed in the files have also raised fears over an out-of-control federal government and its central bank partner.

North Dakota State Representative Rick Becker knows a threat to liberty when he sees one. He will soon introduce legislation to limit law enforcement's use of drones in searches and seizures.

On Wednesday, January 2, 2013, President Barack Obama did what constitutionalists and civil libertarians knew he would do: He signed into law the renewal of his power to apprehend and detain Americans indefinitely on no more authority than his own suspicion of their complicity with enemies in the “War on Terror.”

The tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14 has proven to be a reference point for opponents of the Second Amendment to once again propose anti-gun legislation. However, reports from the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicate that the focus on rifles is misguided. In fact, according to the FBI, more hammers, clubs, and blunt objects are involved in murders than rifles or shotguns.
