(Gateway Pundit) – Joseph Stalin’s firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state.
Above: Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur)
But that could never happen in the United States, right?
Or maybe not…
Via Guns Saves Lives:
In this short video by the NRA, an internal Justice Department memo revealed the Obama administration’s own research shows that an assault weapons ban would only be effective with mandatory gun confiscation and that universal background checks would only be effective with federal gun registration.
In their January 4, 2013 document, Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies, the Obama Justice Department admitted that an assault weapons ban would not be effective without confiscation and gun registration.
It is widely known that Democrats have been pushing for gun bans for years.
The federal government ordered Google and Apple to turn over the names and contact information of over 10,000 American users of a gun app Obsidon 4.
Own a rifle? Got a scope to go with it? The U.S. government might soon know who you are, where you live and how to reach you.
That’s because the government wants Apple and Google to hand over names, phone numbers and other identifying data of at least 10,000 users of a single gun scope app, Forbes has discovered. It’s an unprecedented move: Never before has a case been disclosed in which American investigators demanded personal data of users of a single app from Apple and Google. And never has an order been made public where the feds have asked the Silicon Valley giants for info on so many thousands of people in one go.
According to an application for a court order filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on September 5, investigators want information on users of Obsidian 4, a tool used to control rifle scopes made by night-vision specialist American Technologies Network Corp. The app allows gun owners to get a live stream, take video and calibrate their gun scope from an Android or iPhone device. According to the Google Play page for Obsidian 4, it has more than 10,000 downloads. Apple doesn’t provide download numbers, so it’s unclear how many iPhone owners could be swept up in this latest government data grab.
