|Federal Court Upholds Obama/Holder Gun Registration Scheme; Congressional Action Needed|
|Friday, January 13, 2012|
Moments before this alert was to go out, a federal district court in Washington, D.C. issued a ruling upholding an Obama administration policy that requires federally licensed firearms retailers in states bordering Mexico to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles. The case was brought by two NRA-backed firearms retailers and by the National Shooting Sports Foundation acting on behalf of its affected members. Plaintiffs plan to appeal immediatelybut in the meantime, your help is urgently needed in seeking congressional action to end this illegal policy.
Devised by Attorney General Eric Holders Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the plan requires all of the 8,700 firearm dealers in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to report all sales of two or more semi-automatic rifles within five consecutive business days, if the rifles are larger than .22 caliber and use detachable magazines. (The plaintiffs in the case pointed out that this was about 20 times more dealers than had been subject to any similar demand letter before, but in today's decision the court nonetheless found the new requirement limited in scope.)
In July, the Justice Department announced that it would proceed with the controversial reporting procedure. During consideration of the FY 2012 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, pro-gun U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) offered an amendment in committee to prohibit the use of funds for the unauthorized reporting plan and the amendment was passed by a vote of 25-16. Unfortunately, the Rehberg amendment did not make it through the appropriations process.
S. 570 currently has 33 cosponsors. To see if your senators are cosponsors, please click here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:SN00570:@@@P
Again, it is critically important that you contact your U.S. Senators as soon as possible and urge them to cosponsor and support S. 570, and defeat the Obama/Holder Gun Registration Scheme.
We need to bring this judge in to discuss things with the appropriate House committee.
How much more proof is needed that the Fast & Furoious plan is coming to fruition.
This was the reason for F&F.
And just like pedophiles, Federal Prison will not be a nice place for them.
Oh. wait, this is about gun rights, which are actually in the Constitution...as opposed to the right to kill children right up until the moment they exit the birth canal, which is evidently enshrined in the unwritten, angry feminist version of the Constitution that the rest of us aren't allowed to see!
Sorry - my bad!
...a federal district court in Washington, D.C. issued a ruling upholding an Obama administration policy that requires federally licensed firearms retailers in states bordering Mexico to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles.
Are you kidding? None of these so-called politicians and political appointees will never see a courtroom much less a prison cell.
just seeing if a post will go thru on this thread
Already got my scary semi-automatic long rifles that are larger than 22s. Now I’m buying extra magazines that hold 20 and 30 rounds and buying bulk ammo for all my scary assault rifles and pistols. Better get out there and buy before the cutoff comes. Thinking about the reporting requirements ... probably most of the buyers reported will be ATF and Justice Dept. personnel running guns for the Food Stamp President’s re-election campaign fund.
I see my Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) isn’t on the list, but Risch (R-Idaho) is.
I don’t know Risch. But I do know Crapo’s wife...
“a federal district court in Washington, D.C. issued a ruling upholding an Obama administration policy that requires federally licensed firearms retailers in states bordering Mexico to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles.”
Do these Marxist pigs really believe they’ll be exempt from the hangman’s rope just because they’re wearing black robes?
How Bad Is Fast and Furious for Holder? Sean Hannity

ISSA: But, yes, well, look, the American people are going to hold the attorney general responsible. There will be a housecleaning either between now and the election or certainly one after the election. But what we are going to continue doing, we are deposing witnesses in the days to come, finishing our evidence trail and we are going to send the package up and expect the president to respond to what is a clear process of mostly political appointees knowingly let this happen. And one thing that came out very clear today, Sean, is that there is a Rahm Emanuel moment that is pretty obvious, that when this disaster was happening, they decided to be opportunist and use it to expand the gun database that they are now executing by their won regulations in four states and asking Congress to expand nationally. Very clearly, they made a crisis and they are using this crisis to somehow take away or limit people's second amendment rights.
Anyone else catch that?
They are looking to expand it to the rest of the country
Once theyve done that they just expand the requirements slightly and Hello! Gun Registration.
I can see 2012 be another record sales year for guns and ammo.
Today Virginia’s “Instant” background check is running three days behind.
No surprise that McCain isn't on the list, I did expect Kyl to be on it, he gets more usless every day.
When a state like Virginia arms up, I have more confidence in the purpose of the 2nd Amendment.
Maybe, maybe not. Never assume anything.
They might prefer jail to one of many possible alternatives. People are getting real tired of this stuff. It’s going to pop hard at some point.
I agree congressional action is needed— But I am more and More convinced that this nation divided against itself and turned from being a nation under God must go under for there to be anything redeemed.Our system— Congress is as broken as the Executive— and God only knows what we ought do with the despotic weakest branch-the Judiciary.If I were to attempt rewrite Scripture for today’s America I would say “In those days there was no Law in America and everyone did what was right in their own eyes.As we have been educated to believe.
The Food Stamp Kenyan and the rest of the Chicago Stalinists are trying to disarm our Society one “gun law” at a time. Everyone needs to get what they want now, because if these criminals get another 4 years, then I suspect 2nd Amendment believing Americans are on the way to being branded as criminals by this “government.”. What happens after we are all branded as such will certainly be cataclysmic.
Virginia’s “Instant” gun owner list is three days behind? /s
bad enough that they killed two federal agents and hundreds of mexicans to get this through without blinking en eye. Stonewalled congress. But the media has turned a blind eye to this like it was nothing.
I hope and pray that the republicans make it a major fiasco during the debates and turn on the heat during the campaigns on obama. They better take over the debates and let him have it on this matter.
If not they don’t deserve our support.
Shall not be INFRINGED, Shall not be INFRINGED, Shall not be INFRINGED. Once these judges are lined up against a wall and offered a blindfold, then I’ll believe in blind JUSTICE
Thanks for the lnik.
