|Worried About the Latest Jobs Report? You Should Be||New York Post: Obama Clueless About How to Creat Jobs|
Great. Obama and his Attorney General, Eric Holder, were just busted in one of the most egregious and criminal scandals in American history (wait…what? You haven’t heard about Operation Gunrunner or Operation Fast & Furious on your local news or via the MSM?).
The Obama Administration and the MSM (yeah…I know…redundancy) had a narrative that the majority of guns being used by Mexican drug cartels were coming south across the border from the United States. Only problem was — it wasn’t true. So, in order to make it true, Holder directed the ATF to hand out guns to the Mexican cartels and drug gangs.
Why would they do this?
So they can claim a crisis exists (where one doesn’t) and then rush in with emergency measures to stem the flow of guns to Mexico. By unveiling tougher new gun laws in the United States. Like the ones he loved so much in Chicago (and you can see how well limiting the ability of law abiding citizens to own and bare guns has worked out there…).
Via the Huffing-and-puffington Post:
WASHINGTON — Half a year after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), the Obama administration is set to release a series of reforms to the current gun law, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Thursday.
The reforms, which are being crafted by the Department of Justice, come after a series of meetings with relevant stakeholders in the Second Amendment debate. But in a nod to the difficulties of getting legislation through a Republican-run House of Representatives, only executive orders or administrative actions — and not an actual bill — are expected to be handed to Congress.
Administration officials were coy on the specifics, from the reforms the Department of Justice would recommend or when it would actually make those recommendations.
Of course they were…because they don’t have any specifics yet. Just a broad dream of disarming law-abiding citizens.
Unless of course this is part of Obama’s plan to boost the economy, because — just like his election did in 2008 — this news is sure to spurn a whole new wave of gun and ammunition sales. I was waiting to buy that new little Ruger SR9c that I’ve had my eye on, but I might just have to go out and get it this weekend.
As for Obama and Holder? I just have three words for ‘em: Cold. Dead. Hands.
If you bitches want my guns, you’d better bring Janet fucking Reno out of retirement, because you’re going to have to burn down my house with me and my guns in it to get ‘em.
Fellow Texan Bryan Preston weighs in:
So we don’t know what the administration is planning, and Congress won’t get to weigh in. Both are recurring themes with this administration, especially since the mid-terms took the House out of Democrat hands. We’ll get yet another dictatorial move by an administration that pushed Gunwalker, one of the most irresponsible gambits any administration has ever tried, and is run from top to bottom by far left ideologues.
January 2013 can’t come fast enough. And, faster please.
Just one more reason to support Gov. Rick Perry for President — I’ve shot guns with the man. Hell, I’ve shot his gun. I have zero doubt that any bullshit anti-second amendment crap passed by Obama and Dingy Reid will be overturned by President Perry.
And this commenter at Frum Forum is dead on, too:
I can’t speak for the NRA, but this administration’s history of unconstitutional overreach by way of executive orders – Libya being only the most recent example – does not inspire confidence. This gang of left wing lawyers shows either monumental ignorance of fundamental constitutional restraints or utter contempt for the same. Evidently they assumed the inauguration was actually a coronation.
