Skip to comments.Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban [Flashback, 2009]
Posted on 02/28/2010 10:04:30 AM PST by Thunder90
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.

This move does not lose Obama any votes, so there’s no downside to it, from his narcissistic point of view.
You’re absolutely right. The Kenyan has no idea....absolutely no concept of what it means to be an American.
I see a lot of turmoil by this summer.
This statement is a year old.
Welcome to a year ago, when the Obama Administation thought that they had all the political clout in the world.
There’s no way in hell another “assault weapons” ban will pass the House, especially this year. There just aren’t enough RINOs to vote for it to offset the amount of democrats that will vote against it. It would be dead on arrival once it reached the floor. It would have a bit of an easier time in the Senate, but it wouldn’t be easy to pass there either. The dems would be stupid to even try it I think. Just the talk of it will anger many people.
If they do somehow manage to pass an AWB this year, they truly must be suicidal.
The Democrats are past caring. They don’t listen to polls any more. If they get enough of these bills passed they don’t have to either.
That will be cause of a civil war there.
This is great news. Thanks Holder! Clinton list 74 House seats and the Congress in 1994 thanks to this stupidity. And gun rights are 17 pts more popular now than then.
I cannot wait for November. This islamo-marxist is holed up in the white hut like hitler in his bunker. He is clueless at how he is enraging the public. The Democrat Party is PURE evil.
What about bugger-guns?
Obama picks nose at summit [Yes]
ETL and Impy both confirmed that this is NO HOAX:
Kerry had his sperm suit. Dukakas had his tank ride. Obama? He takes the cake. [And ‘buggers’ it up.]
Not sure where you’re getting the Feb. 28, 2010 date, but I went to the original story at the link you provided and it’s from February 25, 2009.
How’s that saying go? Measure twice cut once?
Let them know they can come over to my place and ask me how I feel about this.
of course...something to distract from all his other failures
Well why doesn’t Onada and his angry band of commies eliminate state government?
This will go no where except to the US Supreme Court if Onada pushes this. With all the crap Onada already has on his plate one wonders why he wants to open this wound right now. Is he planning some other nasty surprises—like refusal to hand the presidency over to the next duely elected president? If he tries that he’ll want to get as many firearms as he can out of the hands of Americans as fast as he can.
This is a year-old story. Nothing has been done since and it would solidify GOP majorities in both houses if they tried.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Holder snuck this one by us during the health care summit on Thursday.
