Obama going after the guns

We knew it was an question of when.

Looks like using the Mexican Drug War as an excuse Eric Holder (Obama's AG) has declared that Obama wants to re-enact the Assault Weapons Ban. Of course this time around it will be much, much worse.

Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

"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"..."I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum" (It would "help" stem the flow of guns to Mexico).

Yes ban guns from law abiding citizens in order to "help" stem the flow into Mexico.

"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"

There is NO "gun show loophole". What Holder is talking about is banning private sales of firearms, meaning selling a gun to your neighbor, friend, or in the paper. There are already laws covering if you sell many guns this way as a form of income. Do it without a license and go to jail. Banning these sales would be the same thing as making it so you couldn't sell your car unless you sold it to a dealer and the dealer could sell it to someone else.

There are NO "cop-killer bullets". Throwing this scare tactic term out allows the AG to go after ALL ammo except maybe the lowly .22...until someone uses that to kill a cop. Any caliber rifle has the capability to penetrate a vest. Say goodbye to that 30-30 lever action that's been in your family for 4 generations.

The new Assault Weapons Ban will also include language making it the discretion of the AG as to what guns are designed strictly for sporting purpose. If a gun is use for anything but sporting (police and military), even if it also used in sporting, than it can and will be banned. Say goodbye to a Remington 700 bolt action rifle. It's used by police and military snipers today. Say goodbye to the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 pump shotguns. They are used by the police and military today.

Haven't even gotten to registration, insurance, and ammo microstamping yet.
