Skip to comments.Guns Groups to Sue Over New Obama Regulations, DOJ Vows To 'Vigorously Oppose"
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 nations 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.

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!
Maybe worth a 2A ping.

Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience. ~ John Locke
Getting caught red-handed doesn't even slow this crew down. Liberals are the Devil himself.
Never let a crisis go to waste.
If there is no crisis, manufacture one.
On the outside an Action Figure, deep down a pussy.
Syllogistic Conclusion: If caught manufacturing the crisis, double-down.
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.
Good one. :-)
Holder wants to protect his monopoly on supplying guns to Mexican gangs....
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.
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.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?
