Obama's ATF is coming for your guns

The Bill of Rights is Abolished  -  Comrade Obama uses the "war" on drugs as an excuse for the Feds to steal private property
  • In a total rape of the Constitution the Federal Government is coming for your guns, for your money and for your private property.
  • All hail Karl Marx.

Comrade Obama's regime is making it easier for bureaucrats to take away guns and other private property without offering the accused any realistic due process.

In a final rule published last week, the Justice Department granted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) authority to “seize and administratively forfeit property involved in controlled-substance abuses.”

That means government can grab firearms and other property from someone who has never been convicted or even charged with any crime reports the Washington Times.

The Bill of Rights has no meaning in the modern United States.

It’s a dangerous extension of the civil-forfeiture doctrine, a surreal legal fiction in which the seized property — not a person — is put on trial. This allows prosecutors to dispense with pesky constitutional rights, which conveniently don’t apply to inanimate objects. In this looking-glass world, the owner is effectively guilty until proved innocent and has the burden of proving otherwise.

Anyone falsely accused will never see his property again unless he succeeds in an expensive uphill legal battle.

Such seizures are common in drug cases, which sometimes can ensnare people who have done nothing wrong. James Lieto found out about civil forfeiture the hard way when the FBI seized $392,000 from his business because the money was being carried by an armored-car firm he had hired that had fallen under a federal investigation.

As the Wall Street Journal reported, Lieto was never accused of any crime, yet he spent thousands in legal fees to get his money back.
