    Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law. Judicial Watch had filed, on June 22, 2012, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious and “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.” The administration has refused to comply with Judicial Watch’s FOIA...

    Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- The Illinois State Police are pushing legislation that could have a severe, negative impact on gun rights in Illinois. Senate Bill 1034, which was introduced as an anti-drug bill, was recently amended by the state House of Representatives to cover Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards. This issue surfaced due to the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ), which has allegedly threatened to shut down Illinois State Police access to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS if numerous changes to Illinois law are not implemented. The ISP are the point of contact for NICS checks, so...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Obama's DOJ Forces University to Allow 38 Year Old Male To Use Women's Restrooms

    A letter from the Department of Justice (DOJ) caused the University of Arkansas at Ft. Smith (UAFS) early this month to reverse policy and allow a 38-year old anatomically male-student permant use of women's bathrooms on campus despite opposition from female students.The university made the reversal on "advice of counsel" after receiving a letter the DOJ sent in response to a complaint that a single, self proclaimed "transgender" student filed with the DOJ's Civil Rights Division. "Because of the stance we took, the individual filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights in the Department of Justice," Mark Horn...

    Attorney General Eric Holder used his testimony before a House committee on Thursday to tout the supposed need for new gun control laws to prevent “gun walking,” or the transportation of firearms across the Southern border. But he – and members of the committee – ignored existing laws that already accomplish Holder’s ostensible goals. “That is why we need a stronger gun trafficking law,” Holder said in response to questions about recourse against officials who signed off on the gun walking tactic. The tactic was integral to Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed the transportation of roughly 2,500 firearms into...
  • U.S. Department of Justice Seeks Law Against Lying Online (No more Facebook Pseudonyms?)

    Using a pseudonym on Facebook or fibbing about your age on a dating site could be illegal if the U.S. Department of Justice has its way. The DOJ is going to Congress today to argue that Web sites' terms of service policies should be enforceable by law, according to CNet. For that purpose, the department seeks an expansion of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a 25-year-old law that mainly deals with hacking, password trafficking, and threatening to damage a computer. By outlawing terms of service violations, the department would have an easier time prosecuting cyberbullies such as Lori Drew,...
