Cartoon BRILLIANTLY Illustrates Birth of Democrat Party

 Another Thanksgiving is coming upon us and yet another ridiculous suggestion from Democrats on bringing up politics while trying to enjoy time with your family has reared its ugly head.
Over past years, Democrats have suggested talking about their failed Obamacare plans. Funny they aren’t suggesting that again this year.
This year Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest is suggesting people talk about unconstitutional gun control over Thanksgiving dinner.

From The Daily Signal:
The Obama administration would like to you set aside some quality time with family and friends on Thanksgiving to promote a political opinion.
Explaining how lawmakers should “pass a law that would prevent somebody who’s on the terror watch list from being able to buy a gun,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest decided to encourage folks to use a holiday about gratitude to preach some liberal tenets.
“As people are sitting around the Thanksgiving table,” Earnest said, “talking about these issues, as they should, and as I’m sure they will, all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised, and asked by members around the table—that if we’re going to have a serious discussion in this country about national security, let’s talk about some pretty obvious things that Congress can do.”
Watch the video here:

So let’s talk about this ‘terror watch list’ or ‘no fly list’ for a moment.
There are 73 TSA employees who were discovered to be on the Terror Watch List. Most likely they aren’t supposed to be there but they are.
Clearly the federal government can’t really be trusted to keep accurate lists.
On top of that, these people are on lists but haven’t actually committed any crimes.
The Obama Administration wants to take people’s rights away without having actually indicted them for anything that would normally prohibit them from buying firearms.
Not to mention it’s extremely easy to GET on the Terror Watch List.
The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government’s secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place entire “categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to “nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be watchlisted.
The only thing this would be used for is to make it so more law-abiding citizens cannot purchase firearms. Period.
It’s another back end form of a gun ban because there is no one accountable for the list and they have made the requirements to be ON the list vague and arbitrary.

If any of your relatives bring up this topic, tell them the above and ask them if they know whether or not they are on these lists because they actually could be.
How many rights in the Bill of Rights are the Obama Administration and Democrats willing to infringe upon and violate for their hoplophobic push for useless gun control?
Note to Obama: If terrorists really want to get firearms, they most likely won’t get them legally. People intent on breaking the law don’t usually let laws get in their way.
