Obama-messiah now says we must give up more of our 2nd Amendment rights by banning “assault weapons” (i.e., rifles that could be used to protect ourselves from rioters and criminals) in order to help “reduce the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico.”
The Stuttering Messiah as told a lot of lies, but this is one of his biggest whoppers. Those scum-of-the-earth drug dealers south of the border in Mexico don’t care whether they get their weapons from the U.S., or Russia, China, Israel, or any of the other 98 countries that mass-manufacture and sells weapons.
The entire idea that we have to give up our Constitutional rights in order to help stop drug dealers in Mexico from getting guns is ludicrous at face value. They will get guns no matter what.
In short, now that violence from heavily armed Mexican drug gangs is spilling over across the U.S. southern border, our own government wants to disarm us so we can’t protect ourselves.
When the so-called “assault weapons” ban expired under Bush in 2004, Democrats were quick to predict a rash of violent new crimes sweeping America.
The bleeding heart liberals painted pictures of evil “assault weapons” owners firing wildly into the streets, killing and maiming hundreds or even thousands every year. Of course, no such carnage emerged. Indeed, we have now had five years with no assault weapons ban, and violent crime committed with assault weapons actually dropped.
So the Obama-messiah administration now has to lie through their teeth again in order to get the ban reinstated.
Obama-messiah promised during the elections that “I am not out to take your guns.” The dirty bastard lied through his teeth.
Two things to do:
1.) Call your representatives and let them know you are against the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban proposed by Attorney General Eric Holder.
2.) Join a good 2nd amendments rights organization like the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, or others, today.
Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban
Previous Ban Expired in 2004 During the Bush Administration

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2009
The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.
Wednesday Attorney General Eric Holder said that the Obama administration will seek to reinstitute the assault weapons ban which expired in 2004 during the Bush administration.
“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.
“I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.” Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.
Mexican government officials have complained that the availability of sophisticated guns from the United States have emboldened drug traffickers to fight over access routes into the U.S.
A State Department travel warning issued Feb. 20, 2009, reflected government concerns about the violence.
“Some recent Mexican army and police confrontations with drug cartels have resembled small-unit combat, with cartels employing automatic weapons and grenades,” the warning said. “Large firefights have taken place in many towns and cities across Mexico, but most recently in northern Mexico, including Tijuana, Chihuahua City and Ciudad Juarez.”
At the news conference today, Holder described his discussions with his Mexican counterpart about the recent spike in violence.
“I met yesterday with Attorney General Medina Mora of Mexico, and we discussed the unprecedented levels of violence his country is facing because of their enforcement efforts,” he said.
Holder declined to offer any time frame for the reimplementation of the assault weapons ban, however.
“It’s something, as I said, that the president talked about during the campaign,” he said. “There are obviously a number of things that are — that have been taking up a substantial amount of his time, and so, I’m not sure exactly what the sequencing will be.”
