ATF supplying MS13, too?

Hey, why stop at Mexican drug cartels?  Why not see just how many guns we can get into the hands of known criminals and pass some through Florida to the MS13 gang?  Yeah, that sounds like an AWESOME idea…

ATF Tampa Division Walked Guns to Honduras and to MS13 Gang Members

Un-freaking-believable.  We The People need to make sure the ATF, AND ALL THOSE THAT AUTHORIZED IT, gets held accountable for their actions.  Heads need to roll.

You’ve gotta be kidding me, ATF!?!

This is bull$hit!

To combat gun trafficking, ATF asks gun dealers to report sales of semi-automatic rifles

How am I not even a little surprised that this administration has tried to turn this against gun owners?!  “Oh, um, yeah… we secretly authorized gun dealers in border states and Florida to sell a bajillion guns (which we’ve lost) to cartels and gang-bangers, but we’re getting our shit together now, guys.  If a person wants to buy two semi-auto rifles in a week, you’ll let us know, right?”

“Federal, state and foreign law enforcement agencies have determined that certain types of semi-automatic rifles – greater than .22 caliber and with the ability to accept a detachable magazine – are highly sought after by dangerous drug trafficking organizations and frequently recovered at violent crime scenes near the Southwest Border,” Cole said.

THEY WOULD KNOW since they provided them!

Obama’s Justice Department also plans to introduce a new electronic system that will make background checks for handgun buyers simpler and faster and has imposed tougher sentencing guidelines for “straw buyers,”

And what the hell does this mean?!  How is this going to be any different than the federally required NICS check, and why target pistol purchases?

<insert flustered incoherent ramblings here>

I called it.

Big shocker here…

Obama to unveil gun control reforms in near future

From the article:

The end result, one source close to the discussions said, was a package of reforms “not huge in scope.” They are largely expected to mirror the topics covered in the president’s op-ed. Gun control advocates have pushed for more, including legislation that would limit the size of magazines — such as the 32-round clip that Giffords’ shooter used — or a bill that would force private sellers to conduct background checks at gun shows — which was pushed in the wake of the Virginia Tech shooting.

Still, executive actions offer something that legislation doesn’t: guaranteed results. And as one gun control advocate told the Huffington Post, there are ways to “use these administrative changes to obtain similar results.”

Emphasis mine.  Well would you look at that?  Sounds like ol’ Barry might be considering an executive order.

Keep your powder dry…

America Disarmed

I received this email from the NRA today (edited by me for content).  You should read it, too.

Dear Friend in Freedom,

The U.N. is conspiring to destroy your gun rights.

And Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are using the U.N. for their “under the radar” program for gun control in America.

The “Small Arms Treaty” now being negotiated at the U.N. is a TROJAN HORSE disguised as an effort to combat international gun trafficking.

In reality, it’s a sinister ploy by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and foreign bureaucrats to thrust a dagger deep into the heart of our Bill of Rights!

A recent FORBES article confirms that if passed by the U.N. and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the treaty “would almost certainly force the U.S.” to:

  • ENACT DRACONIAN GUN LICENSING, making it next to impossible for you to purchase and own a firearm.
  • CONFISCATE and DESTROY all “unauthorized” firearms as determined by foreign bureaucrats.
  • BAN THE TRADE, SALE AND PRIVATE OWNERSHIP of all semi-automatic firearms.
  • ESTABLISH AN INTERNATIONAL GUN REGISTRY, opening the door to “full-scale gun confiscation” in the U.S.

But because this issue is so IMPORTANT, I want to give you a FREE digital copy of my new upcoming book: America Disarmed: Inside the U.N. and Obama’s Scheme to Destroy the Second Amendment.

My new book will be released on November 1, 2011, retailing for $25.

But I want to give you a FREE copy of America Disarmed for a limited time only.

All you have to do is reserve your e-book today.

I don’t expect the national media to write reviews of my new book, so I’m hoping after you read America Disarmed that you’ll write letters to the editors of your local newspapers and the magazines you read and urge Americans like you to make this a pivotal presidential campaign issue before it’s too late.

When I was growing up, I was taught that the U.S. Constitution guaranteed every American fundamental protections to our liberty, including the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Now this liberty – your liberty and mine – is under attack like never before by a president whose allegiance is to the U.N. and not to our U.S. Constitution.

Reserve your FREE e-book today. But hurry. This is a limited-time offer.

Now, if you read my blog, you know that I’ve mentioned this “working under the radar” by Obama before, so getting this email from the NRA was no surprise to me.  I read e-books on my iPhone, so I went ahead and reserved this one.  I’m sure it’ll be very informative.  Check the links in my blog above.  You might just find the information as interesting as I do.

Keep your powder dry, people.

EDITED: My best friend Keith, Harvard Law graduate, has informed me he is offended by this blatant fear-mongering by the NRA.  I concur that it is fear-mongering.  Doesn’t mean it’s not happening and that the President isn’t trying his best to undermine parts of the Constitution (see my blog link above).

EDITED AGAIN: Since I’m fair and balanced 😉 I’ll go ahead and post this article here, as well.

Arms Trade Treaty will not affect your ability to buy guns

Still not sure I believe what that article writer is saying since a lot of the evidence still points to Obama doing his best to enact gun control.

Thoughts on Project Gunwalker by a NYT Best-Selling Author

So you all have been reading my blog posts about the “Fast and Furious” goings-ons.  Well that’s a part of “Project Gunwalker”.  Well, check out this blog post about Project Gunwalker by New York Times Best-Selling author Larry Correia.

Project Gunwalker

It has a very thorough description on what the project was about, complete with external hyperlinks to read about specifics.  You should hopefully recognize a lot of his arguments from stuff I’ve said, but he also raises some valid points about the apparent lack of media coverage and outrage. To quote Larry,

How high does this go? Well, it sure isn’t looking pretty for the President. This is bigger than Watergate. A crime was committed in Nixon’s administration and he tried to cover it up.  The same thing is happening here. But at least in Watergate, nobody got killed.

So where’s the outrage? Where’s the 24/7 media coverage about this travesty of justice?  Oh, I forgot, Nixon was a Republican.

Even if you are a huge supporter of gun control (and I really don’t know why you are reading this blog if you are) innocent people have been killed and our Justice Department is complicit in it. If you aren’t angry then there is something wrong with you.

That pretty much sums up how I feel.  Thanks for another awesome blog post, Larry.

Anti-Gun Laws disarm the Law Abiding

No matter what the law reads or what the courts say, every adult citizen is entitled to own a gun for his personal protection.  No anti-gun law ever disarmed a criminal; only respectable people are rendered helpless.

-Elmer Keith, in his book Sixguns

I absolutely agree!

International illegal arms trafficking?  You bet they should be tried in Mexico, lawmaker or not!

U.S. Officials Behind “Fast and Furious” Should Be Tried in Mexico, Lawmaker Says

From the article:

While it is highly doubtful the U.S. would allow its law enforcement officers to be extradited to Mexico, Salazar says Mexico could make the situation uncomfortable for the U.S. if it chooses to publicize the many people killed or injured by so-called Fast and Furious guns.

“It would be very difficult for them to get a fair trial in Mexico,” she said. “But I think it’s very important they be prosecuted in the U.S. Not just those involved, but those who allowed it to happen. This should be followed up with a very strong prosecution here. If you are not going to be nervous in the United States, you should at least be nervous where these guns are found,” says Salazar.

I hope Eric Holder is feeling a little nervous.  He should be fired for being inept.
