|23 State Attorneys General To Attorney General Holder: "No Semi-Auto Ban"|
|Friday, June 12, 2009|
On June 11, the top law enforcement officials of nearly half the states signed a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, expressing their opposition to reinstatement of the federal ban on semi-automatic firearms.
"We share the Obama Administration's commitment to reducing illegal drugs and violent crime within the United States. We also share your deep concern about drug cartel violence in Mexico. However, we do not believe that restricting law-abiding Americans' access to certain semi-automatic firearms will resolve any of these problems," the letter said.
The letter notes congressional opposition to bringing back the ban, and calls for increasing enforcement of existing laws.
We encourage NRA members to let these state officials know we appreciate them standing up to the incessant clamor for gun control that is currently coming from anti-gun groups and their media allies.
The 23 state Attorneys General, in alphabetical order, by state, are:
Arkansas The Honorable Dustin McDaniel

Where is Alaska? The shame!
LOL - they never intended to stay in the crawlspace, just breed there until they felt they had enough numbers to raid the kitchen.
Sigh ... another product of public schools.
Please look again. New Hampshire is certainly part of New England.
Leftist New Hampshire is on the list.
I apologize for overlooking New Hampshire, home to retiring SCOTUS member David Souter.
...and the state responsible for reviving John McCain’s presidential campaign last year.
California’s not on the list!? Shocking. Truly shocking.
Tennessee Attorneys General are left-wing Democrat party hacks chosen in the singlemost byzantine manner by any state in the nation, they are “elected” by the State Supreme Court, itself a NON-ELECTED bastion of trial lawyer leftists for which it is nearly impossible to get a Republican appointed. Until we return the Supreme Court to being duly elected by the public (the only Constitutionally permissable method, ignored now for nearly 30 years where the Modified Missouri plan is used), there is almost no chance of getting a Republican, let alone Conservative, AG.
Yeah, really hard to believe, huh? And that dumbass gun-grabber, Moonbeam Brown wants to be governor again next year. He was the one who started this state’s slide into oblivion!
There you have, with maybe a couple of added states, the core of the New United States... No Make that the Reformed United States.
New Hampshire is on the list. "Live Free or Die".
They're just waiting for the right moment. Maybe if the Soldier killer had some cojones, and had pressed his attack into the recruiting center, or the guards at the holocaust center hadn't been quite so on the ball, they might have had enough blood to dance in.
Except for laws which allow permanent bans on keeping and bearing arms as part of a specific criminal sentence (you know that due process thing) most all current "gun" laws should not be enforced, they should be declared unconstitutional or repealed, preferably both.
I am proud to see my state, Missouri, on that list. My heart swells with joy.
New Hampshire is New England
There were enough dead this last spring, about 40 dead in 4 incidents, i.e. the ethnic Chinese guy from Vietnam in upstate NY, a white guy on a rampage including his family and former employer in two small towns in southern Alabama, the North Carolina nursing home massacre and another incident that escapes my recall, IIRC.
Brady et al. were foaming at the mouth. They want bills for access to medical/psychiatric records. The national rats don't want to touch the Second Amendment, except to embrace it. IMHO, they are very shy about gun control.
Had Andrea packed a gun yon years ago when Phil was mayor history would be different.
I'm surprised to see Wisconsin and New Hampshire on the list.
Charges Against 'New Black Panthers' Dropped by Obama Justice Dept. Three men were accused of trying to threaten voters and block poll and campaign workers by the threat of force -- one even brandishing what prosecutors call a deadly weapon.
What makes anyone thinks he cares what letter is sent to him?
23 out of 50? Still, better than what I would have expected, these days.
