Guns Groups to Sue Over New Obama Regulations, DOJ Vows To 'Vigorously Oppose"
FoxNews ^ | 8/3/2011 | Mike Levine

Posted on 08/03/2011 7:34:41 PM PDT by Blood of Tyrants

Gun industry representatives said they would file lawsuits Wednesday challenging new gun-control measures by the Obama administration, an effort the nation's top lawyer vowed to "vigorously oppose."

The Justice Department, facing growing questions over Operation Fast and Furious, a controversial sting targeting Mexican drug cartels and American gunrunners, announced last month that it would begin requiring firearms dealers along the nation’s Southwest border to report multiple sales of certain semi-automatic rifles. The department said such rifles are "highly sought after by dangerous drug trafficking organizations," and the new measures would help "detect and disrupt" weapons trafficking

But, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday the "action we have taken is consistent with the law."

"The measures that we are proposing are appropriate ones to stop the flow of guns from the United States into Mexico," he told reporters in Washington.

Does he think we are stupid? Does he think that anyone with one eye and a grain of sense doesn't already KNOW that it was HIS Justice Dept that ran Operation Gunwalker that allowed THOUSANDS of firearms and explosives to be smuggled into Mexico illegally?

If he wants to greatly decrease the number of firearms smuggle into Mexico have Obama RESIGN and take the whole lot of Marxists with him!

Mom steps into the dark kitchen, and flips on the light. There's her son, stealing cookies from the cookie jar. He looks at her, smiles, and pockets a few more cookies for later. Then he flips her the bird, and casually walks away.

Getting caught red-handed doesn't even slow this crew down. Liberals are the Devil himself.

Never let a crisis go to waste.

Corollary:

If there is no crisis, manufacture one.

A 10-year-old girl scout could kick Holder’s facist butt while selling chocolate chip cookies.

The traitor Holder will climb the 13 steps to hell.

He knows that a large portion of the country is stupid on this subject. Outside of conservative circles, who knows or cares?

If Jay Leno did one of his Man on the Street segments, I'd be surprised if one in ten people knew about Gunwalker or Fast and Furious. They'd say they were action/adventure flicks.

In the few liberal rags that have reported it, some of the readers' comments were positive. The scandal is worth it to them, deaths and all, to get rid of those evil assault rifles. The end justifies the means, by any means necessary. It will result in peace and love.

They don't know history, don't care, and don't know how much danger "the end" will put them in. Clueless.

The department said such rifles are “highly sought after by dangerous drug trafficking organizations such as the ATF, FBI and the Justice Department”. Eric “the bigot” Holder said that he was initiating the policy as a cover to draw attention away from his other more profitable Gunwalker operations.

This is a classic example of government created crises to provide the
desired solution. How many other crises have they created and just not been caught red handed? answer = MANY!!!
Keep laughing at Alex Jones.

“Americans may own guns for the purpose of hunting and target shooting”

Does anyone truly think this is why guns got into the Bill of Rights? That’s like saying we have Freedom of Speech so we can make grocery lists and do crossword puzzles.

My self-restraint is remarkable, given the comments I started typing in and then started over.

The guns that were ‘flowing to Mexico’ were the ones deliberately being sold by BATFE to known criminals.

The fedgov sells guns to Mexican criminals.

The criminals use the guns and cause problems.

Fedgov says ‘we must crack down on gun sellers’ because us guns are making their way down to Mexican criminals.

Create the problem, make it look like the group you want to hammer is causing the problem, then go in and hammer on your targeted group.

Fricking government hiney screwers.

So... the Obama White House ships a huge batch of automatic weapons to Mexican crimunal cartels, then curtails purchases of civilian firearms to Americans....

What’s wrong with this picture?

Why are you surprised? It's been obvious for years that if the clown playing PRESENT says anything that he is lying. Obama and Holder are caught with GUNWALKER but unless ISSA goes after them and generates a crises, the community organizer is going to continue on with his plans to disarm Americans. Obama needs an excuse to implement martial law and a pissed off populace is what he needs.

Next month Barry and the UN are going to start the movement to force Isael to withdraw to pre-1967 borders. With Libya already establishing precedent, UN and Obama will attack Israel and then it really hits the fan.

Why is Obama doing these things? It's the wet dream of every radical Muslim in the world, the destruction of Israel and the destruction of America.

Since its rebirth in 1948, Israel has endured and overcome military attacks from neighboring nations. She has been assailed by gun-wielding fanatics and terrorists encased in explosive-laden backpacks. Israel stands today because of the grit and tenacity of the Jewish people and the providence of God. Having been deterred by Israel's security forces, her enemies have turned to defaming the nation by questioning her very right to exist. This attack is both convoluted and hazardous. The airwaves are constantly bombarded by those wishing to prove Israel's lack of legitimacy as a nation and detailing her supposed "war crimes" against humanity. I don't often quote Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi war criminal, but in this instance, it is appropriate: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

The denial of the authentic claim of the Jewish people to occupy their homeland is de-legitimization at its worst . Those who would wish to strip the Jewish people of their birthright are subtle and urbane. Israel is cleverly portrayed as a nation of immoral people whose birth is illegitimate and character questionable. The test for those embroiled in this issue is to separate valid criticism from innuendo--to distinguish the truth from the lie. In peace talks, Israel is portrayed as the recalcitrant child unwilling to share her toys with the other kids on the block. The Palestinians are the poor, deprived underlings. They are the orphans with a hidden roomful of toys donated by those who pity the underprivileged--the bully on the block who somehow manages to elicit sympathy while surreptitiously pummeling the innocent. The fires of public opinion are burning brightly against the State of Israel.

Western countries and leaders unfortunately seem to have embraced this crusade for de-legitimizing Israel. The Liberal Left has joined forces with fanatical Muslim elements in an attempt to crush the very life from the Jewish nation comparable in size to the state of New Jersey. Israel is expected to kowtow to the demands of its detractors without a whimper and accept her intended fate without a fight. With the Liberal Left emphasis on human rights and a finger of blame pointed at Israel as a nation that intentionally violates those standards, world leaders have become more accepting of the de-legitimization process.

Understand this clearly--every nation and individual that supports the United Nations and Obama Administration plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment. Every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing.

America is on a prophetic countdown to the gravest days in our history. In a few weeks, a vote will be taken at the United Nations that will force America to choose between standing with Israel and standing with her enemies. Israel's leaders have asked the Jerusalem Prayer Team for its support at the United Nations and a week later as the nations of the world gather for the demonic Durban III conference to continue accusing Zionists of being racists. The first Durban Conference happened in 2001. At that conference, the Palestinians distributed copies of the anti-Semitic The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion to all delegates. It was the most evil, anti-Semitic UN assembly ever against Israel .

The conference ended on September 8, 2001...and 72 hours later, the US was attacked by Radical Islam. I can assure you that in the spirit realm, this was no coincidence. God's Word promises a curse on any nation that touches Jerusalem. Once before, an American President attempted to divide Jerusalem and surrender the Temple Mount to radical Islam. That president was Bill Clinton. Now President Obama plans to do the same--this time by formally recognizing a Palestine State at the UN in September within days of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

I do not believe for a second that all the economic and political turmoil America is going through is coincidental. America needs Divine intervention that can only come from God's people standing in the gap like Esther.

Excellent quotes for anti-democrat ammo (disclaimer to the NSA, FBI, CIA, etc., the word "ammo" in this post is used as a metaphor for verbal arguments against democrats -AKA- socialists, marxists, communists, progressives, liberals, those of the anti-US Constitution mindset, etc.) bookmark:
