Obambi Seeks A New Assault Weapons Ban

I’ll be honest, I do not really see the point behind owning assault weapons as a private citizen, I seriously doubt there is going to be another revolution, but, see, there is that pesky 2nd Amendment thing, so, if you want one, Mr. I’m Was A Constitutional Professor wants to infringe on your Right

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.

“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.

Here’s an interesting thought, though it is not the first time I have had it: why couldn’t Obama or some other Democrat have proposed legislation since 2004? Sure, it would have probably failed when the GOP controlled Congress, and Bush would more then likely have vetoed it from during the time the Democrats controlled Congress up to Barry taking over, but, they could have at least gotten it on record, right?

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.

Oh, you mean the people that acquired the weapons illegally? How would a ban stop that, Eric? All it will do will be to stop the people who do things legally from acquiring an assault weapon. But, apparently U.S. citizens have to give up their rights (again) for Mexican nationals.
