It didn’t sound right to me so I sent an email to Alan asking if he had written it and if he had was it recent or sometime in the past. He replied to his email list and posted on his blog the following denial.
I’m reminded of something Winston Churchill said, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Churchill, of course, said that before Al Gore invented the Internet so today it would be more like around the world 10,000 times instead of just halfway.
From Alan Korwin:
I did not write this:
Obama’s Gun Ban List Is Out
Here it is, folks, and it is bad news. The framework for legislation is always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want to impose upon us. They really do not believe you need anything more than a brick to defend your home and family. Look at the list and see how many you own. Remember, it is registration, then confiscation. It has happened in the UK, in Australia, in Europe, in China, and what they have found is that for some reason the criminals do not turn in their weapons, but will know that you did.
Remember, the first step in establishing a dictatorship is to disarm the citizens.
Where did that email come from?
A lot of people apparently got it before someone sent me a copy.
I’d like to write to whoever decided to create and circulate it.
I finally got it in this link from someone:
I did not write that inflammatory paragraph and its next sentence,
even though someone has attributed that to me.
I did indeed post, in January 2009, the huge list of guns to be banned that came with it — which I took directly from a Democrat’s proposed bill, HR 1022, in the 110th Congress. That list is accurate (as it appeared in the link above, and as it remains posted on my website), including the blanket powers to be granted to the Attorney General, amounting to an extraordinarily broad firearms ban.
[“Rifles (or copies or duplicates): M1 Carbine, Sturm Ruger Mini-14, AR-15, Bushmaster XM15, Armalite M15, AR-10, Thompson 1927, Thompson M1; AK, AKM, AKS, AK-47, AK-74, ARM, MAK90, NHM 90, NHM 91…”
the list goes on at great length, including shotguns, handguns, gear, parts and much more, go to my website for the whole list]
That part is not invented. It was from Congress. In 2009.
To everyone who wrote to me asking for the source, there it is.
No one, including the Democrats, expected that to have a chance of passage at that time,
under President Bush. It simply showed what they wished for, and they introduced it into Congress.
It is horrifying from a gun-rights perspective.
Whoever used my name without my permission or knowledge was at least clever.
My original posting is here, including the list of guns to be banned, and you can read it:
If you own a gun, chances are yours is included, because along with the specific lists,
are features guns have, like grips (you read that right), and anything the AG might decide to add.
The Brady Gun-Ban Strategy, issued at the same time at the beginning of Obama’s first term, is here:
It did not circulate very far outside their own circles.
The lamestream media basically ignored it because it was so incendiary.
This is why the left was so disappointed with Obama’s performance:
he failed to act on their astounding rights-removal plans.
Their respect for the fundamental civil and human right to arms is lower than you can dream.
Now, as far as I’m aware, no one outside his inner circle has seen his current plans.
Saying “Obama’s Gun Ban List Is Out” — and attributing that to me, is false.
I would sure like to know who did that.
But the list of guns was real, it was proposed in Congress almost four years ago.
Who knows what they’re planning now. Wait and see.
I doubt it will be good, if your rights mean anything.
As before, I’ll be watching, and will continue to post these things as I find them.
I read the bills, and describe them in plain English. I get other insider info.
It’s what I do. Get on my list on my home page — http://www.gunlaws.com
I have the UN Arms Trade Treaty spelled out in my reports 113, 114 and 116, here:
113- How treaties can trump the Constitution; 114- The UN treaty spelled out in plain English;
116- Mexico’s plan to use it against us, from our pro-rights Ambassador Donald Mahley.

Permission to circulate this memo gladly granted.
P.S. If that doesn’t worry you enough, scroll down to this item on my New Stuff page:
GUN-RIGHTS LICENSING PLANNED, http://www.gunlaws.com/newstuff.htm
also introduced into Congress, HR 45, at about the same time, the beginning of Obama’s term.
It would require a test to own a gun that no one could pass, plus biometric ID that doesn’t exist.
It also had no chance of passage, but shows how they were thinking. It got no co-sponsors,
was introduced by former Black Panther Bobby Rush, and what’s our Congress come to.
