    Attorney General Holder Reveals Aggressive Gun Control In Response to Ft.



    WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Before the Senate Judiciary Committee November 18th, 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed a stunningly broad and aggressive anti-gun agenda.



    "The President of the United States asked that politicians notuse the Ft. Hood attack to engage in 'political theater.' It appears those committed to attacking gun owners and the Second Amendment simply can't help themselves and are engaged in blaming guns and gun owners on the heels of this terrorist attack. Sadly it looks like 'politics as usual,'" said LEAA's spokesperson, Ted Deeds.


    After explaining and defending his decision to give enemy combatants constitutional protections and the right to public trial in civilian courts, Attorney General Holder revealed his support for a national gun owner registration scheme and authorizing the government to ban firearm possession for any person by merely adding that person's name to the terror watch list.
    Drawing reasonable conclusions from what Holder publicly said, we now know:

    • Holder wants a national, permanent gun registration system administered by law enforcement. A registration of honest citizens that have cleared the federal background check for gun purchases with those records permanently retained by and shared among law enforcement.
    • Holder wants new federal authority to prohibit any person on the federal watch list (reported to be 400,000 names) from buying guns and supports confiscating guns from those on the list who possess them.
    Transcribing General Holder: "The position of the Administration is that there should be a basis for law enforcement to share information about gun purchases." "... [It's not] inconsistent to allow law enforcement agencies to share that kind of information, for that information to be retained and then to be shared by law enforcement." "It seems incongruous to me that we would bar certain people from flying on airplanes because they are on the terrorist watch list and yet we would still allow them to posses weapons." {Emphasis added}
    LEAA's Executive Director Jim Fotis said, "Those behind the badge don't believe more restrictions on honest gun owners is a reasonable, practical or constitutional response to acts of terrorism. As a retired officer, I know that America's men and women in blue want to fight terrorism, to stop terrorists; not waste time keeping records on innocent gun owners!"

    That pesky old Bill of Rights.

    These libtards actually think they ALLOW us to posses "weapons", and don't see that it is our RIGHT.

    I really smell serious trouble on the horizon.

    Not sure what you mean?

    I smell trouble in that when these libtards start to take away our rights, as set out in the Constitution, people will not just sit back and take it.

    My friend,

    I smell it too. However, Nov 2010 we can block these morons with a sufficient number of more 2nd amendment conservatives in Congress. Therefore, instead of using a nuisance spray to resolve the stinch and the smell...I suggest we simply VOTE!!!

    Just when we were hoping that the supply and prices of guns and ammo would stabilize ...

    So far, it's just Holder mouthing off again, but if any legislation gets serious consideration in Congress, I'm loading up on stocks in SWHC (Smith & Wesson Holdings), RGR (Sturm Ruger) and OLN (Olin). There are probably more publicly traded firearms-related stocks; these are just what I found in a few minutes of searching.

    there should be a basis for law enforcement to share information about gun purchases.


    But a terrorist serving in the armed forces will get a free ride. Unless of course they are white, Christian, or conservative.

    Yeah, see, that's the thing - would any of this have applied to the Ft. Hood terrorist? Does a Major in the armed forces require a background check to get a weapon?
