Those of us who were not mesmerized by the shiny object that was Candidate Obama knew that the effete little city boy was going to come for our guns at some point. [I would like to take this opportunity to call out you morons who ignored every public policy position ever taken by now-President Urkel in order to support that naive and ephemeral HopeAndChange schtick. You people were and are idiots and we all now have the government that YOU deserve.]
ABC News is reporting that President Obama wants to seek a new assault weapons ban. You know, those scary looking weapons that are almost never used in crime. ABC reports:
“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.
So now we stomp on the Constitutional rights of Americans because it will help those corrupt banana republic a$$holes down in Mexico?
It looks like those people who were buying guns in record numbers after Obama’s win were only being pragmatic. What Comrade Obama is missing, but some congressional politicians likely are not, is that we Americans love our @*(&#$ guns. LaPierre makes that point:
In a brief interview with ABC News, Wayne LaPierre, president of the National Rifle Association, said, “I think there are a lot of Democrats on Capitol Hill cringing at Eric Holder’s comments right now.”
This will be good material for campaign ads in 2010. Any congressman from a non-hard-left district is going to pay a big price for supporting this gun control law.
Holder, best known for securing the controversial pardon for the biggest tax cheat in US History and violater of the Trading with the Enemy Act, continues:
“I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller,” Holder said, referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Washington, D.C. v. Heller, which asserted the Second Amendment as an individual’s right to own a weapon.
The gun show loophole. What they really mean on that one is that they do not like that regular people can sell guns to one another without the government being in the loop. And Cop Killer Bullets? I thought that we had seen the end of that stupid one a long time ago… it is a straw man argument. And since Heller (much to the chagrin of freedom fearing leftists) affirmed our individual rights under the second amendment, I cannot see how a ban on semi-auto rifles could stand that test.
Now would be a good time to go out and purchase one of those Chinese AK knock offs. They are good guns and not all that expensive. Get non-corrosive 7.62 ammo!
