New gun laws use "secret watch list" (Are you on it?)

New gun laws use “secret watch list” (Are you on it?)

You and I love our guns, and we feel really strongly about our gun rights.
That’s why so many of us are upset about the threats of gun control through executive orders.

I’ve seen all KINDS of proposals, including threatening to make all gun owners get “psych evals,” banning standard-capacity magazines, banning popular semi-auto rifles (or making us register them, which is basically the same thing)…
…And all of these are in bills that are somewhere in Congress, even if they haven’t made it to the “final stages” to become laws yet.
That’s bad.

But there’s an even bigger threat that is ALREADY in place, one that may already be targeting YOU specifically, and you don’t even know about it.
Because our government is ALREADY using a “secret watch list” to track gun owners!
I found it in a report from the ACLU, whose record on gun rights, honestly, isn’t great – so if they’re worrying about it, we should be even MORE worried.
The report from their website says…
“The U.S. government maintains a massive watchlist system that risks stigmatizing hundreds of thousands of people—including U.S. citizens—as terrorism suspects based on vague, overbroad, and often secret standards and evidence.”
What that means is that the FBI is using this “secret watch list” in background checks – you know, the ones the gov’t wants to extend to EVERY gun transaction – meaning no more “off grid” firearms!

What’s even more worrying, to me, is the “secret and nebulous criteria” used to classify people like YOU AND ME as terrorists, people who can’t buy guns, can’t fly on planes, and are presumed guilty until proven innocent in the eyes of the government!

(“Nebulous” means it’s so vague that they can do it to ANYBODY they want, at any time.)
Following the attack on the Capitol on January 6th, those “nebulous criteria” are only going to get more broad.

They’re going to lump YOU in with the nuts who stormed the Capitol screaming about how “next time” they’ll need “more rifles.”
(Dressing like a deranged Viking bison is optional, I guess.)

“But Jeff,” you might be thinking, “There’s no way I could be classified as a domestic terrorist.”

Don’t think so?

Think again, amigo, because our government’s own official documents (such as those used by the FBI and Homeland Security) declare as potential “domestic terrorists” any U.S. citizens who…

  • Believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment
  • Are concerned with the direction of govt.
  • Buy guns and ammunition
  • Store survival food and other supplies
  • Are Christian… military… or “conservative”

And that only scratches the surface of who they are looking at as a potential “enemy of the state” – especially now that EVERYONE who doesn’t agree with the government is being smeared with the label of “insurrectionist.”

You May Think You Aren’t On A List, But…

You still may not think you’re on any kind of a list, but honestly, you probably wouldn’t know it if you were.

Quite a while back now, I found an online tool that lets you check yourself or a family member to see just how many “red flags” you’ve tripped.

(The page links to a “news article” that is really just an ad for this Truth Finder tool, which is cheesy as heck, but it just means you have to click a second link.)

What I found out was, I wasn’t on the watch list yet… but my ex-wife was!
(I also found out there were some – ahem – people on “offender registries” living nearby, among other things.)

But what I have to ask myself now is… disturbing as it was to see someone I knew on the list… have I been added to it since?

With the government furiously cracking down on any “insurrectionists” it thinks might be “disloyal,” more and more people are going to start being added to that list, and that might include you.

And some of the new laws being proposed in Congress now, like the enhanced “background checks,” are just a backdoor way to put you and every other gun owner on that watch list…
…Which means a whole lotta trouble for even the most responsible gun owner.
If you’d like to find out for sure, head on over to the “info article page” that links to the online tool – but be prepared to type in your name and be left speechless.
