Holder dials back his commitment to pushing ban on assault weapons

Attorney General Eric Holder is retreating on his commitment to pursue a controversial gun-control measure.

Holder’s statements, recently delivered to senators in writing, clearly indicate the Obama administration is in no rush to reinstate the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

In response to written questions from Senate Judiciary Committee members, Holder adopted a much different tone on the ban than he did in February, when he said, “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.”


GR4U – Don’t take this at face value people. This is pure sleight of hand. Just as a magician fools you into looking at his right hand while the left hand pulls something out of his sleeve, the Obongo administration wants you to think that your 2A rights are now safe from any further gubmint depredations. Nothing could be further from the truth!

There are plans by this administration to sign onto a coming UN treaty against the “illegal” trafficking of small-arms. It will have the same effect of disarming the American gun-owner that a complete repeal of the 2A would have. The only variable is how vigorously do they plan to enforce it. My guess is that they have recognized that American gun owners are the ONLY real obstacle to the UN’s plan to morph into a world government, and they WILL enforce this treaty pretty thoroughly.

Here's a picture of the statute that stands in front of the UN in NY city. This should give you a good idea of what the rotten bastards at the UN think about guns in the hands of citizens. That's no military firearm there!

You’ll find loads of “sea lawyers” who will expound at length about how the Constitution is the law of the land, and how any treaty that contravenes Constitutional language will not be enforced. Don’t you believe it! Stop for a second and consider how much the government is CURRENTLY doing is unconstitutional! Can you seriously put your faith in a document whose only contemporary purpose is the continued programming of school children? It has become nothing more than a doormat for the corrupt government that RULES over us.

Remember the DC vs. Heller case that so many gun rights advocates cheered as forever settling the right of the individual to keep and bear arms? Well, those people failed to notice the giant “BUT” that came out of that decision (from right-wing darling Scalia no less!). That decision did not do one single thing toward rolling back all the various infringements in the form of registration and licensing. In fact, I can’t even see where it has benefited the people of DC! You still can’t “bear” a firearm there!

A little smoke and mirrors from the master bullshit artists in Washington? Maybe intended to focus the heat and hate away from the hermaphrocrats in DC and put it on the somewhat more faceless leaders in the U.N.

Just a thought here... I wonder if the thugs wearing the Ninja suits would be replaced by the thugs wearing the blue brain buckets?

Both make great rifle targets

Got a couple of those so called assault weapons or more depending on the exact definition used. Hopefully our laws and my finances will allow me to purchase several more.

I think it would be prudent to purchase a good semi automatic pistol (or a revolver if that is your thing) and a good semi automatic rifle with detachable magazines as soon as ones finances allow. You never know if they will be at the gun store next year but if the pistol is in your nightstand and the rifle is in the closet they probably aren't going anywhere.
