Skip to comments.Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban
Posted on 02/25/2009 8:20:19 PM PST by model B
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.
I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller," Holder said, referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Washington, D.C. v. Heller, which asserted the Second Amendment as an individual's right to own a weapon.

Either that or the old teflon-coated ones.
Um, AG Holder, you may want to look at a map. Mexico can obtain waepons smuggled to any point along their coastline and from their southern border...idiot.
Yes, those head-chopping drug cartels will turn theirs in right away.
Watch out! they are coming for moly bullets! Target shooters beware.
i guess he thinks black talons are still widely available? this guy truly is an idiot.
Usually the gun grabbers mean any bullet that can penetrate the soft body armor Police usually wear.
Eric is stomping on American citizens’ rights to solve a Mexican problem? This guy is unbelievable.
Great. The AG is a bona fide self-admitted domestic enemy of the Constitution. What now?
"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller,"
"Gun show loophole" = no private sales or transfers without the fedgov's permission and knowledge and full registration.
"Cop killer bullets" = standard centerfire rifle ammo that can penetrate a cop's kevlar vest. This means your 30-30 lever gun's ammo.
"Assault weapons ban permanent" = Ban semi-auto rifles, with no sunset clause.
It's coming, folks. And this is coming from the AG who just called us all cowards.
I predict this will Hussein’s first legislative defeat.
The drug cartels will always find a way to get the the weapons they want. Not our problem. And it is not an excuse to violate American civil rights.
Technically, a cottonball is a cop killer if you can throw it hard enough...
The Marines get to kill drug dealers and mexican police and soldiers supporting the cartels and we don't have to put up with that punk ass trying to do an end run around the Second Amendment again.
I'd say that is a much better solution.
Everyone knows that Mexico's honest government officials, police, and military stop any assault weapons from entering their country.
Zero and Holder actually believe USA is the primary source for every Mexican criminals arms purchase?
Holder and Zero are the poster boys for the failure of affirmative action.
I hear you Travis - I think we’re moving closer to outlawing the government. Load up!!
"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller," Holder said. "And besides, you all are just a abunch of cowards anyway, so this should be easy to accomplish."
Thanks for the GOP majority you filthy tyrant.
I wonder how the Obama voters, the third party voters that wasted their votes and the all or nothing stay at home conservatives that did not vote and feel about this? This is their train wreck. We will reap what their votes sowed.
We’ll see who the cowards are. They’ll be the ones in bulletproof limos.
