Article from 25 February........
The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.
"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.
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."
Gee, I wonder if Kenny's gonna go over the edge here with opining on the subject.
Heh....... Y'all know me like a book, eh ?
Hot buttons, hot buttons, who's got Kenny's hot buttons ?
You funny..... You make me laugh..... ha !
OK smart guy, whatcha got for me ?
Isn't it slightly, kind of, sort of, possibly, even remotely obvious to you that that the current administration is gearing up...... for something dangerous.
Oh no, here we go again........
Really? Here we go again ? Look at facts....... Executive orders and regulations (plus 'nudges' and 'tweaks' to existing ones) are becoming the law of the land. There's a nice one that allows Interpol to operate freely within the borders of America and not be subject to any Constitutional restraints when dealing with anyone. There's also another E.O. that completely revamped the authority, handling and classification of documents within the entire federal government structure..... Plus another one that basically seizes State Sovereignty and hands over the national guard of states to the federal government in undefined emergencies - the 'marketing' name of that thing is a 'governor's alliance'. Then of course,The EPA unilaterally shut off 95% of the water used in farming to the single most fertile growing area in America and that's in a single state...... why ? All because of a 3-inch fish that does nothing ? The water is still off. That state (California) should have told the feds to go spit up a rope and yeah..... moved in with force if necessary to secure it's sovereignty. The state government isn't even arguing, let alone fighting.
OK, that actually makes a good point....... Go on.
Congress is almost completely irrelevant to this administration and will be just that after the about-to-be rammed through complete cradle to grave government control over individual citizen's life and death via "health care" legislation and then, right behind it, we'll see cap & trade - based on Algore's 'settled science' insanity and the aims of The International Coalition For The Responsibility To Protect.
You're scaring me with all this talk abo..........Wait........ What's The International Coalition For The Responsibility To Protect ?
Oh boy........ Nobody's been listening for the past year or so........ Look at this: http://responsibilitytoprotect.org In The USA, it's address is http://r2pcoalition.org This is the organization that put together all the UN and other international one-world government stuff, like The UN Convention On The Rights Of The Child, The International Arms Trade Treaty, helped with C.I.F.T.A. and started that bizarre 'Coexist' organization and many more.
Just look at what's going on in education at the grade-school level here....... A piece of abject evil is installed as something called a 'Safe Schools Director' within the Department Of Education. The guy is one of the chief advocates for some of the most deviant behavior known to exist and has documented that he will make his views a part of every curriculum nationwide. This kind of thing doesn't just pop out of thin air. It's worked in over time and many many layers of invisible and seemingly unaccountable-to-the-people bureaucracy.
Hey, can I get back on track now before I lose my train of (what some folks may consider bizarro-world) thought ?
Of course, but you gotta know that you're starting to freak me out here.
Thanks..... and good....... I'm glad you're getting worried...... You should be....... Very worried......... The administration could also pretty much care less about The Supreme Court, except for getting one or two more justices seated who will make Ms. Sotomayor seem a nominal appointee to the august body.
Oh come on, no self-respecting p..........
Dang it, will you try and LISTEN, but more importantly you've got to THINK independently. Think outside of the box, because this administration is operating outside The Constitution on many things and building a shell around the entire structure of our nation in their stated goal to "fundamentally transform The United States"............ Sunstein and Holder, will very soon and very publicly introduce a few well-crafted sentences into several sets of existing regulations and all of a sudden, anything and everything that can shoot anything and everything - including your kid's two-fingered rubber band gun - will magically be part of the ban. Think about it..... This is the way they're approaching things: Any weapon - a gun, knife.... hell, a pencil can be considered an assault weapon if used in an assault.
Um.............. The States wi...........
Of course there are states that will say "no"............ So here's another real hard gut feeling.......... Any state rejecting the government's edicts on those scary-looking guns will have all federal funding stopped cold - remember there's that executive order I mentioned before about the governor's alliance.
Whoa......... That's all sorts of Totalitarian and Dictatorial ! You don't think that they're actually 'going for the brass ring', do you ?
They're coming and whatever they're gonna do, they're gonna do well before the elections in November so 'the crisis too good to waste' will occur.
OK, now you got me thinking........ Happy now ?
Very. Whatcha thinkin' 'bout ?
In order for that 'crisis too good to waste' to happen, that means some sort of seriously bad stuff starts going on in the nation and that's kind of..............
Why does it have to actually start here ? Everything's tied together. What about The Middle East with Israel, Iran and the rest of the peace-loving nations ? Do you have any idea what will and may actually occur if/when Iran pops off a nuke on Tel Aviv ? Better yet, what about if/when Israel moves on Iran ? There's more than just one or two people over here that are waiting with baited breath and 'toys at the ready' for something to go boom over there.
Oh give me a break, what does 'over there' have........ to...... do..............with................. anyth.................... Gasp.
Typical, bitter, Jewish, God-clinging, gun owner and barking-mad insane NASCAR fan.
Sure you can have my guns...... Bullets first.
I didn't say cartridges, shells or magazines first.
I said bullets first.
