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.
do you think he has any idea of the hornets nest he’s about to kick?
You can tell that this rookie Holder is nothing but a moron. He uses Hollywoodspeak. “Cop killer bullets” Gimme a break! He has watched way too many movies.
Absolutely AND every hunting rifle caliber. What you can count on is the regulations proposed by Holder, et al. are both ignorant and dishonest. Holder does not give a fig for Mexican stability. He wants to take guns from law abiding citizens and make the population easier to push around.
The hits just keep on coming.
First bill hits the floor of the house, it will hit the fan.
What can they not understand?
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Is that not clear?
Gee, and just a few months ago, he said that we didn’t have to worry and to stop buying up guns. What a lying SOB he is.
Like I’m surprised.
yeah a little bell went off in my head when I read “cop killer”. I thought, this clown doesn’t have a clue about what he’s talking about.
He's talking about bullets in general. That's one of their ultimate objectives.
Very childish and Hollywood-like.
For one thing, they know that libtard reporters will never question their loose definitions. They sound great. And by banning them, they can selectively ban every rifle bullet, semi-auto firearm and private sale not approved by the government.
You're not in Kansas anymore....you’re nationwide now.
But you are 100% correct at the hornets nest he is about to kick. It is not going to be pretty.
"Come and get them."
Sure he does. He’s no dummy. Don’t get hung up on actual technical definitions. His definitions are deliberately vague. This way he can ban any rifle bullet he wants to-—or at least put them under severe controls, as in photo ID to purshase with govt records kept etc.
Full Metal Jacket are not considered cop killer bullet?
I have been meaning to ask what that phrase meant. Thanks.
I think the weasels are beginning to realize that they have to grab the guns before the pot boils over.
Holder will have to go after alot of cops then..because I know quite a few that have been buying guns and ammo in anticipation of fools like Obama and Holder....LOL
Here it is, the Bill of Rights reduced to toilet paper for the DC Elites heinies...
Obama will seek these 4 elements in a gun bill
1. An expanded HR 45, gun owner licensing. All gun owners will have to have these licenses, even owners of facilimie weapons (AKA Airsoft and BB). Licenses will only be granted if the records of the applicant are clean (This includes misdemeanors from decades ago). Licensees will be required to hold $1 million in liability insurance. Possession of otherwise permitted weapons (See #3) without license is a felony.
2. Ammunition accountability... All ammo will be required to be microstamped and will be taxed $1/round. All non stamped ammo will be required to be turned in or thrown away. Possession of non-marked ammo is a felony. This part of the act also bans “Cop Killer” bullets.
3. Expanded “Assault Weapons” ban— This includes most all semiauto rifles, anything that can be “Bump Fired”, Semiauto handguns, and Semi-auto shotguns. It also includes pump-action shotguns and “Sniper Rifles” AKA your deer rifle.
4. Expansion of the Lautenbach amendment: Removes “Domestic Violence” as disqualifier to gun ownership, inserts any misdemeanor as disqualifer... Anyone with a misdemeanor on their record will be prohibited from owning a firearm. This includes DUI and traffic offenses, and offenses decades ago.
There you have it in a nutshell...
Yeah, like a majority of the most popular hunting rifle rounds.
Well that could include pretty much anything that comes flying out of the downrange end of a firearm save for a Nerf slug, or a 9mm marshmallow.
That would be a rapid prelude to CW2.
I hope those idiots realize that.
I also forgot to mention that the AWB will require people with “Prebans” to register their guns as Machine Guns, and that the tax stamp will go up to $10,000 per weapon...
“And this is coming from the AG who just called us all cowards.”
I like to think we’re just harmless unless provoked and feel like my government is calling me out.
“Cop killer bullets? Is he talking about hollowpoints?”
Anything that can penetrate a police vest. See how easy that is?
A 20mm Lahti Anti-tank gun will take that $#!t eating grin off their faces.
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.” —Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 10 October 1787
I am assuming that is Greek in the parentheses? I know the saying, but not the actual greek words. Thanks. Learn something new everyday.
