Blame not the tyrant, blame the people who obey him

I haven't got a clue what anti-liberty "executive orders" Obama has proclaimed concerning guns. I'm sure I will find out what most of them are in the coming days. However, I could not possibly care less what he thinks will become "law" just because he declares it so.
Real law is discovered, not created by rulers.
Real law, also called Natural Law, says you have the right to own anything you want, as long as you didn't get it through theft, fraud, force, or threat of force. Anything. Any weapon at all. Yes, even nuclear bombs.
The possession of anything can never be a violation of any real law. Only initiation of force (or a credible threat to initiate force) and theft violate real law. If you hurt someone or damage their property it doesn't matter what you use to hurt them- YOU are the guilty one, not your tool. Anyone who believes otherwise is a superstitious idiot. Yes, Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, and probably just about everyone else who works for the government in some capacity- I am speaking to you.
Obama is violating real law- Natural Law- by pretending he can take your property and/or liberty. By violating your fundamental liberty to own anything you wish, and to defend your life, liberty, and property in any way you see fit with any tool you wish to use, he has declared war on you. Just as Bush the Decider did before him by imposing the Patriot Act. They are no different than a mugger in a dark alley demanding "Your money or your life".
Only people who plan on obeying Obama's anti-liberty proclamations worry about what they might be. I don't worry about it. I know he is the sworn enemy of liberty, and as such he has declared that he is my mortal enemy. This is not news to me.
I will not obey. Not one more inch.
