Obama hopes to enact new gun-control measures in 2013

President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013....
Will he succeed?
First, by many accounts Obama stole the election with the electronic voting machines.
Second, Sandy Hook, more than likely, was a “false flag”. 223 caliber casings were found in the building, but Lanza’s .223 (Assault Rifle) was still in his car. We have heard no more about the other two men who were apprehended at the scene. Go figure.
Third, Obama got his health care despite the huge public outcry against it. Where were the House and Senate “Republicans” when we needed them? Why will not the House Republicans cut off the funds needed to finance the socialist agenda?
Fourth, The news media for the last several weeks has reported record gun, both hand gun and long gun, sales, particularly of the military style AR15, which uses the military .223 round. (There is a 6 month backlog at the gun factories.) There are several other long guns that use the same round and are semi-automatic also, e.g., the Ruger mini-14 Ranch Rifle. It has a wooden stock and looks like the older military M-14 of Viet Nam era. There is not a big fuss about that long gun, evidently because it does not look as menacing as the AK47. It also holds a 30 round mag.
The vast majority of purchases are for self-defense.
Psalms 3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
Psalms 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
Psalms 33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
Psalms 147:10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
Isaiah 31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
“The Fourth Woe The False Help;” (Keil-Delitzsch)
Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
Jeremiah 48:7 For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity with his priests and his princes together.
Throughout Scripture, God has used the enemy of his people to destroy whatever hope they had outside of Himself. He continuelly showed them that their trust in what man can do is a useless hope. In his destruction of thier false God’s, they had to return to dependance upon him.
The more the nation departs from God, the more lawlessness prospers. But notice that rather than seek to return to the law-word of God, evil continues to grow, so people purchase guns to protect from the evil.
Over the years, God has destroyed man’s false gods and assurances.
Will God allow gun control go to its logical conclusion?
The above certainly does not mean that Christians should ignore the dangers, and depend totally upon the Lord for his deliverance:
Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
What does it appear that America is depending upon for safety: the Lord, or strength of the flesh?
Throughout history, what has happened to false gods?
