Posted on 04/13/2014 10:29:01 AM PDT by Cheerio
President Obama has been asked to stop the importation of what 82 House Democrats believe to be military-style firearms such as the AK-47. They want to stop gun crime in Mexico. Maybe they would be more successful at stopping gun violence in Mexico if they fired Holder and revamped the ATF.
The ban would require no congressional action as the President has very broad authority under the 1968 Gun Control Act to prohibit the importation of firearms and ammunition unless they are generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.
Led my Eliot L. Engel (D-NY) and John Conyers Jr. (D-MI),they sent a letter to President Obama urging him to renew enforcement of the ban on imported military-style firearms that was previously enforced during the H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations.

The liberals are saying that Liberty is un-American.
“Please, democrats. PLEASE! I’m begging you. Please run on gun control.”

Arms manufacturers in this country will get another boost. John Conyers should go campaign at the Detroit Gun Works, I’m sure they’d be happy to have the work.
The Capitol Building and WH go gun free first.
The last time around (Bush 41 administration), some of the domestic firearms manufacturers actually lobbied for this.
That probably includes accepting back the US made M-1 Garrand Rifle’s from Korea that they are trying to return to us.
Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.
I hope the far left fringe runs an honest campaign for once - they should run on gun control, ObamaCare, and big government. I’m ready to find out if 51% of the country is ready to give up on freedom.
A little gun diversion. I watched this episode of How It’s made last night on the Science Channel. Hand made Holland & Holland guns. Very interesting old school and new school mix.
Uh-oh, there goes the price of AKs, thru the roof.
The Secret Service goes gun-free first. Let’s disarm the SS first and see how long they want to protect president mom jeans.
Thw BLM didnt back down because they had anything better to do. The militia from several different locals in these United States were called and showed up with their constitutionally approved guns to insure that the federal government’s shenanigans was held in check.
Thought there were more than 82 stupid and ignorant Democrats in the House. What happened to the rest? Can’t read or write?
Conyers thinks too many white “infidels” have military-capable guns. The Koran clearly states that only Muslims may possess weapons of any kind.
Is Conyers a muzzie? Probably not, but he’s fanatically pro-Islam just like his prez.
Ban guns/favor Islam - they go together like sugar & tea.
Yes not to mention it would be closing the barn door after the horse got out. Anyody who wants one of these weapons already has one or 12. :-)
Detroit firearms instructor Rick Ector debates Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump.
Its part 3 if it doesn’t come up correctly.
Ban the import of collectivists into America and DC.
Obama is not an American Citizen ,so the 2nd Amendment means nothing to him
