With a Marxist operative regime in the White House and a Marxist "progressive" ruling over Congress, the threat of an "assault weapons" ban (by the "Attorney General" who sides with terrorists) should be like a bottle of ammonia thrust under America's nose.
America's founding fathers knew well the danger of state authoritarianism and that the Citizens' ownership and training in the concerted use of firepower equivalent to that carried by a national military was "necessary to the security of a free State." They also knew that attempts by a national power to confiscate the people's weaponry was an alarm for the people and their militias to heed the requirement to put that weaponry to use.
Now, a gun sales ban is once again being proffered. What should sovereign Americans do about it?
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.
"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum." Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.
And, how does the sale of a rifle between two Americans lead to the breakdown of order generated by Mexican criminals? Let us ask Mr. Holder, Ms. Pelosi, and Mr. Obama/Soetoro to draw that out for us, on a flow chart. They appear to have things pictured in reverse -- such is the way of the Marxist.
