Topic: Second Amendment Foundation takes on the ATF
TALK SHOW GUEST
Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation is spearheading a media effort that criticizes President Obama’s executive actions which seek to ban ammunition commonly used in AR-15 sport utility rifles. The Second Amendment Foundation is rolling out a TV and radio media campaign that includes a $700,000 ad buy on Fox News and Glenn Beck’s Blaze network.
The one minute commercial asks all Americans to call a toll free number to express their concerns over Obama “exercising another executive power grab.”
Gottlieb notes that the President is attempting an end-run around Congress and the Constitution by attempting an ammo grab through fiat executive orders. This is part and parcel of this administration’s many attempts to rule through administrative decree as opposed to conducting itself lawfully by signing legislation that had been passed by elected representatives in Congress.
While it is the position that such an ammo grab is in and of itself un-Constitutional and a violation of the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment, by championing this issue the Second Amendment is taking on a more fundamental issue which is to thward an unlawful attempt by the executive branch of government to sieze powers not delegated to it by the Constitution.
