Attorney General Holder Reveals Aggressive Gun Control In Response to Ft. Hood Terror Attack
LEAA.org ^ | 19 November, 2009 | na

Posted on 11/20/2009 6:20:06 AM PST by marktwain

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Before the Senate Judiciary Committee November 18th, 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed a stunningly broad and aggressive anti-gun agenda.

"The President of the United States asked that politicians not use the Ft. Hood attack to engage in 'political theater.' It appears those committed to attacking gun owners and the Second Amendment simply can't help themselves and are engaged in blaming guns and gun owners on the heels of this terrorist attack. Sadly it looks like 'politics as usual,'" said LEAA's spokesperson, Ted Deeds.

After explaining and defending his decision to give enemy combatants constitutional protections and the right to public trial in civilian courts, Attorney General Holder revealed his support for a national gun owner registration scheme and authorizing the government to ban firearm possession for any person by merely adding that person's name to the terror watch list.

Drawing reasonable conclusions from what Holder publicly said, we now know:

* Holder wants a national, permanent gun registration system administered by law enforcement. A registration of honest citizens that have cleared the federal background check for gun purchases with those records permanently retained by and shared among law enforcement. * Holder wants new federal authority to prohibit any person on the federal watch list (reported to be 400,000 names) from buying guns and supports confiscating guns from those on the list who possess them.

Transcribing General Holder: "The position of the Administration is that there should be a basis for law enforcement to share information about gun purchases." "... [It's not] inconsistent to allow law enforcement agencies to share that kind of information, for that information to be retained and then to be shared by law enforcement." "It seems incongruous to me that we would bar certain people from flying on airplanes because they are on the terrorist watch list and yet we would still allow them to posses weapons." {Emphasis added}

LEAA's Executive Director Jim Fotis said, "Those behind the badge don't believe more restrictions on honest gun owners is a reasonable, practical or constitutional response to acts of terrorism. As a retired officer, I know that America's men and women in blue want to fight terrorism, to stop terrorists; not waste time keeping records on innocent gun owners!"

So much for the Obama administration not pushing for more gun control.

The only apparent difference between Holder and the dishonorable representative Jefferson of Louisiana is that Holder has not yet been convicted.

Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA - ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State.

It’s NOT gun control we need.

We need Mohammedan control.

They should be registered as potentially hostile to the US Constitution, having no allegiance to it. The first time they do anything stupid, off they go to whatever vermin-infested Mohammedan utopia they wish, surrendering the US Passport along with their boarding pass.

We all knew that they’d come after the guns. This will be the spark that sets it all ablaze and I, quite frankly, hope that they push this effort really hard. It will destroy them.

Well Communists can not take total control and banish the Constitution without confiscating Guns and Eliminating Free Speech. Maybe they made their move too soon.

This decision alone should've gotten him fired in about, oh, 30 seconds. The ramifications of this are incredible. Are our soldiers now going to have to fight using basically police tactics rather than military tactics? You be the judge... If Holder had told me of this decision I'd have fired him before he drew his next breath.

...Attorney General Holder revealed his support for a national gun owner registration scheme and authorizing the government to ban firearm possession for any person by merely adding that person's name to the terror watch list.

And so it begins... If obama and his socialist/fascist cohorts in the administration and Congress push this through, a series of serious confrontations will ensue and a lot of people will get killed.

“Why not aggressive mooslum control?”

Because mooslums in our government are very important. Didn’t you hear that this is a mooslum country, NOT a Christian country? You probably didn’t see who was on the Presidential Committee for Homeland Securtity, did you? Still waiting for MSM to show this:

That what they always do. Instead of controlling the angry fanatical terrorists who have promised to kill us, they take guns away from honest, non-violent law-abiding individuals who have guns only for self-defense, and deliberately leave guns in the hands of criminals.

Holder and his puppeteer don’t believe in the Second Amendment.

They KNOW an armed public is an obstacle to the Marxist Muslim’s anti-Constitutional, Anti-American plans for America.

The Ft. Hood shooting is an opportunity for implementing Rahm Emmanuel’s dictum of not letting any opportunity slip.

If the Health Care Plan is approved, that will free up this monster in the White House to direct his attentions elsewhere - like to “gun control”.

IF they succeed with a National Registry, confiscation WILL follow as the night follows day.

This evil man and his boss should be opposed on this subject at every opportunity.

I for one am getting fed up with the erosion of our rights. They pass the 68 gun control act and it makes things worse.

They pass the Brady bill and it only makes things worse.

Some cities have draconian laws that keep the law-abiding defenseless and at the mercy of the criminal element and surprise surprise, it only makes thing worse.

Each time these new disarmament measures are couched as ‘Reasonable’ diminishing of our rights as law-abiding citizens and each time it only makes the situation worse, making the NSDP call for more restrictions on our fundamental freedoms.

You can make book on it that they will try to push some form having Federal fingers in every transaction – starting out with guns, then ammo, then light bulbs, then..

Then watch them tax the crap out this de-facto registered weapons and ammo, followed by...

Only well-trained professionals in the military and the police need guns.

And a government takeover of healthcare isn’t???

Look at it this way...Gun control will now have anotherr ally in healthcare...

Guns can now be labeled as a healthcare issue (crisis) and be regulated and controlled beyond any un-Constitutional scrutiny...

It takes the legislation, executive and judicial branches out of the loop on the issue and turns it over to an un-elected, executive appointed “Healthcare Czar”...

See how easy that was??? And will be in short order???

Rosie O’Doughnuts doesn’t need spoons. She sucks it straight down like that nauseous yogurt commercial.

Anyway, there’s a storm brewing across this land. Ammo is still scarce and no ammo manufacturer would be so foolish as not to have beefed up production over the past year.

As for liberals dancing in the blood of murder victims - what’s new?
