It is no secret that the Liberals want our guns. Just add them to the list of Liberal Seizures…right behind Civil Liberties. I find it fascinating that gun regulations are creeping in closer and closer, yet there is little attention given it.
At the moment there appears to be some confusion amongst liberals as to the path that needs to be taken, but the first step appears to be registration. “History has shown that around the world, registration has always led to confiscation’” Alan Gottlieb, Second Amendment Foundation.
There are two immediate scapegoats that sit on the liberal selling plate, the DC gun ban and Mexico. The shootings and violent crimes, while terrifying and tragic, have always been a bullet for the anti-gun lobby.
First, the DC Gun ban is a direct violation of the Second Amendment and the Heller ruling. Again, nothing new there except the new reactions/justifications from our fearless leaders. Attorney General Eric Holder has made it clear where he stands on guns, the DC gun ban, and the Second Amendment. I think that even Liberal supporters are starting to cringe at Holder’s foot-in-mouth syndrome, but Nancy Pelosi has been rather coy on gun ban issues. She would not jump right in to support Holder on his push to reinstate the Clinton gun ban, but she is moving in that direction now. “…there is no doubt where Speaker Pelosi truly stands. She will support gun control, but on her timetable, not one provided her by the new Attorney General,” NRA.
Yesterday, Pelosi made here book push attempt on Good Morning America. Here is where she opens up a little to show that she is still in favor of Registration. Watch the video, read the article at your own risk!
(I can’t find it on YouTube)
She takes on the gun issues about 3 minutes in, and then about 4:40 in she opens up about Registration. “We want them registered. We don’t want them crossing state lines,” say Pelosi in the interview. Seems that DC is mounting up to be a battleground and gaining support from the usual left.
Second, the drug wars in Mexico have been going on for a few years now. Frankly, I am amazed at how long it took for the MSM to catch on. My guess…President Bush would not use it as an excuse to ban guns or Civil Liberties. So…let it ride under the radar until the political and social advantages sway to the left, and then announce the crisis! In the early stages of the Mexico drug wars, Texas couldn’t even find support from the Congressman they elected, Henry Cuellar (D-TX.)
Note that this broadcast was from November 9, 2007.
Funny how opinions have changed since the MSM got word of the border war. I can’t really remember ever hearing anything else in detail about Mexico for about another 6 months. Obviously, the issue had already hit Texas.
But to get back on track with Mexico being a scapegoat for the anti-gun lobby, it has already been brought up that the information casting America at fault for contributing the majority of illegal firearms to Mexico is a complete farce. Here. Hillary and the Left-administration are apologizing our rights away over issues that do not hold our blame. I agree with Hillary that America is to blame for the demand of drugs, but that just means that the DEA needs to be reevaluated and funded. How did they end up at the conclusion that since Americans use drugs smuggled from Mexico, firearms must now be registered? Mexico has become the spring that could launch the gun ban.
In Mexico, according to the Wall Street Journal, Holder was asked if the administration might encounter constitutional issues as it tries to crack down on alleged gun trafficking. His response: “I don’t think our Second Amendment will stand in the way of efforts we have begun and will expand upon.” –SAF
I’m NOT saying that it is going to happen, I’m just saying that it is something that needs a watchful eye. With Pelosi finally showing her true colors, it seems to me that it is only a matter of time before they organize and get the blessing of the Obamassiah.
It’s the ramifications of a gun ban at this point in time that keeps my attention. Sporting goods stores are already having trouble keeping ammunition on the shelves. Ammunition manufactures are having trouble keeping up with retail orders, and firearm manufactures are backordered by months. I do not see the American people giving in too easily to registrations or bans.
I know that there is more information out there. I would like to hear more about this issue and its development.
