My Open Letter To President Obama

June 17th, 2014 | by Nick Adams

After hearing President Obama hail Australian gun laws, I penned this open letter to the President for my good friend, Joe the Plumber. It went viral with over 50,000 shares. Be sure to pre-order my book, which deals with this matter in even more detail: The American Boomerang- How The World’s Greatest Turnaround Nation Will Do It Again.

Dear Mr. President,

You recently hailed “Australian gun laws”.

In doing so:

you praised a government for forcefully removing all semi-automatic firearms from its populace,
you admired the banning and confiscation of guns.

We expect to hear that from a European leader. But not you.

You’re the leader of America:

the world’s first free country,
the nation that has inspired many to be free,
that has protected the freedom of others,
that has spread more freedom than any other.

I am an Australian and I must set the record straight.

The “success” of the 1996 Australian gun reform is a myth.

The only thing achieved was to take away the guns of the law-abiding, leaving only the criminals armed. Is this what you wish for America?

In Australia, if a citizen has firearms, the police have a right to search their property without a warrant any time. Does that sound like America?

The laws you praise outlawed the Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun that my father played with as a child. Now you need a special permit, gun safe and serial number.

For what?

There are just as many guns on the street today. Gun crime is no lower. In Australia, mass shootings have been a rare event. If strict gun laws mean no massacres, explain Britain’s

Cumbria shootings, Monkseaton and Dunblane. Or Anders Breivik of Norway?

Gun laws achieve very little.

Mass shootings are about illness, not guns. Any other so-called “gun issue”, if there are any, is related to the breakdown of the family, cultural decline and the age of entitlement.

The Second Amendment defines American exceptionalism. It speaks to the character of America, and reflects why America is America.

Civilian disarmament is based on the assumption that people are irresponsible (unless they work for the government). America was founded on the opposite premise.

Don’t make America a namby-pamby society.

The right to bear arms is not wrong nor unnecessary. It is:

the greatest test of genuine freedom,
the best protection of you, your family and your property,
the ultimate deterrent against government overreach.

The Constitutional right to bear arms is pivotal. The American idea is a value system. If you take away the guns of America, you take away America.

Mr. President, your country is the one the world relies on. Right now, it is at a tipping point.

Forget guns.

Focus on: ending the waste, paying back the debt, limiting the government and axing political correctness. That’s how you’ll get America to boomerang.

Your country is the greatest in the world, and respectfully, Sir, you should stop apologizing for it. Keep it up, and America will be just another European state. And that’s not good for anyone.

Yours Sincerely,

Nick Adams

    I comment your rhetoric regarding Australian Gun ownership. There are some very important parts of your half truths that need to be addressed. You assume that no illegal or unregistered fire arms got handed in during the amnesty. I was an illegal firearm owner and handed my weapons in. I know many other illegal firearms owners that also handed their weapons in. It is true that many criminals retained ownership of their arms but overall the risk of exposure is significantly reduced… Why?

    Having fewer firearms means that there are less break and enter crimes to steal those weapons to use in further criminal activities. Right now throughout Australia firearm owners are regularly having their properties illegally entered and their non-automatic, non-semi automatic weapons are being stolen. That is a significantly better position to be in than having more illegal ownership of semi-automatic and automatic weapons. The challenge is that there is still a flood of illegal weapons being imported in parts.

    If you honestly think that gun ownership makes you safer you should seek medical attention for crack addiction. Looking at the American murder rate by firearm vs Australia.. we are not even in the same league. While it is true that countries like Canada and Norway have higher rates of gun ownership they don’t have the paranoid fear cycle propagated by fools that you have in the US. I wish you luck in the future when the American union falls apart because of a complete lack of perspective on real issues.
