Attorney General Eric "The Coward" Holder wants to reimpose the failed, hated, and despised Clinton Gun Ban.
In an attemt to demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of the issue, Holder has said something even more stupid than his comments on race relations (emphasis added): "I think it will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum." What a maroon.
John Lott has a good piece over at Fox Forum.
Here are some common-sense laws which may appeal to the Obama administration: Outlaw cars that go over 65 m.p.h. Ban high-fat foods and impose calorie restrictions on all citizens. Make cigarettes and alcohol illegal. Why not? These things are bad, and they kill people!
How is it possible that, in cities such as D.C. where guns are illegal, are people still killed with guns? These places have more crime because the law-abiding citizen is disarmed.
During the campaign, then-Senator Obama was asked about the second amendment. He responded in his typical long-winded-but-saying-nothing style that a hunter would have "nothing to fear" from an Obama administration. Let me take this opportunity to instruct the President, who is a knucklehead when it comes to the Constitution. The second amendment has not one thing to do with hunting. It has everything to do with preventing tyranny.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote "[t]hat whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government..." If our arms are taken from us, what shall be left for us to alter or abolish with? Spitballs?
I am sure I shall be painted as a paranoid. But freedom is seldom lost all at once. If it is to succeed, tyranny must be an incremental process. First "assault weapons." Then, all semi-autos. Then, all large calibers. Then, all handguns. Then, all firearms not designated "sporting arms," to be kept in a government arsenal. Then all remaining guns surrendered to the government arsenal. While all this is going on, ammunition is taxed into unaffordability, either directly or through materials used in manufacturing. Then ALL guns, now illegal, are gone forever.
We have seen the contempt of the left for regular Americans in the passage of the Succubus bill. Our cries of restraint were ignored wholesale by Obama and his congressional lackeys. They want us disarmed, so that the takeover can begin in earnest, and tyranny can reign in full.
An honest government has nothing to fear from an armed citizen. An armed citizen has everything to fear from a government who would disarm him.
