"What could he be doing?  I know that gun deaths are into the 5 digits every year and there have been mass random shootings pretty much every day for months, but there has to be something else.  Why would anybody put minor gun control in place over a bunch of stupid dead kids? I've got it!  Secret UN Illuminati Invasion!"

Yes.

God.  I hope so.  I'd love to see the gun nuts totally lose their shiat over that.  We should encourage this foil-hattery.

Sadly, it probably has more to do with America's weekly mass-murder, as opposed to the UN and their strongly worded letters.  But, you know, it's Fox, and what the hell do they know about reality or honesty?

I've long been curious about that.  The American loony right wing seem to think that the UN are completely ineffectual and can only write strongly worded letters, and at the same time, they also think blue-helmeted UN troops are ready to storm into the US and take over.

How can the UN be both ineffectually weak and ultra-powerful at the same time?

That's just what they want you to think.  Every one of those blue bleu-helmeted soldiers can break apart into a dozen smaller soldiers armed with pens and paper.  In a matter of minutes, you could find yourself buried or cut to ribbons by an unholy onslaught of strongly-worded correspondence.

Only a fool would fark with the UN.

Why the government will never take your guns: (From someone who works for the government)

First, there would have to be a proposal for it, and then people would bicker back and forth about things like the definition of guns. Then there would be a two year bidding process for various contractors to submit their cost analysis of proposals, and thousand page documents about exactly how they would do so. 

All the proposals would be sent back eventually because there was a spelling error on page 1384 Section 6.2.3, Subheading A, Paragraph 16, Line 4. This would go back and forth until it was at least five years beyond the original deadline. Finally, once all the contract proposals were in, they would all be promptly shredded and the contract would be awarded to a Senator's friend. Then the edict would go forth to the various departments, which would begin arguing over exactly what jurisdiction it falls under, because some assistant director needs a new computer but it just isn't in the budget, but it would be if they're controlling the contract. 

Once that's all sorted out, there would be a massive effort to write impossibly detailed procedures for how, exactly, they're going to go about taking the guns. Which of course will have to comply exactly to the Code of Federal Regulations and OSHA standards, and then it'll have to go for review by every governmental agency that could possibly be affected by the implementation of it. 

To which some person who has literally no idea what's going on will disagree with the usage of the word "the" on page 1467, Section 4.13.13 (a), because it causes confusion about the exact meaning. Again, this would bounce back and forth for quite some time. We're about fifteen years out from the original deadline now.

Then they would actually send a trial team to take a gun from some hermit in Montana, and an agent would cut himself stumbling on a rock. This incident would have to be reported and analyzed extensively to figure out exactly why the agent had stumbled, the history and chemical make-up of the rock, congressional hearings, what lessons could be learned from his "near miss"

It would then be determined that rocks are hazardous, and were not accounted for in the original proposal. The project would be scrapped, but be considered a valuable program, because it generated tons of peer reviewed research on rocks. It would then be reassigned US Geological Service.

It's like some sort of retarded Occam's Razor - where it's not the simplest solution, but the most Rube Goldberg-y, pants-on-potato, "musta been them libs", MAD Libs situation.

Just grab a handful of words, smash 'em together, and we now have our explanation for why the Debt Ceiling causes communism:
"See, because FIAT MONEY is printed by THE FED, Ben Bernanke is secretly wired into your bank account. Then, via EXCESSIVE TAXATION and THE COST OF MONEY, the value of your dollar shrinks, meaning you now owe more to OUR USURPIST PRESIDENT. Because he's constricted by how much he can borrow for his insane KEYNESIAN OVERSPENDING, he must therefore raise the debt ceiling to BANKRUPT us all - and only then will we realize his LIBERAL UTOPIA, with NO GUNS and FREE HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE, and NO MORE RICH PEOPLE."

You know, if nut-job conservatives are going to constantly accuse the rest of us of zany conspiracies and absurd schemes no matter how stupid their theories are, we might as well just do some of this stuff just to see what happens. Frankly, I'd love to see Fox News on the day when there actually are black helicopters dropping UN soldiers into the middle of some conservative bastion like Colorado Springs.

Of course it is.

You see, that's why the health care reform was so important to him. Soon, he, the American Medical Association, and big pharma can team up to put more people on Prozac, which causes everyone to commit mass murders. Then, they can take away our guns to bring in the One-World Government under the UN.

Didn't you know? It's all over the internets.

The craziest conspiracy theories mash it all together.

I've mentioned him before, but I work with a guy that thinks Obama is going to take our guns, in part because he's part of a secret plot to destroy America and bring socialism. The ones doing the destroying are a "cabal" of demon controlled Jews that can only be defeated by love. These demons feed on human suffering and misery. Also, these demons might be aliens and it's all Solomon's fault for using demon's to build the Temple.

Additionally, vampires, lizard people, and Dick Cheney using his secret phantom producer caused 9/11.

I wish I was farking joking, but he wrote a "manifesto" about it that showed up on my desk in an unmarked manilla envelope, and when it became clear I was not a true believer, he hamhandedly asked for it back.

Plus he keeps all his crazy conspiracy research in a public file folder on the network...
