Thread: Project Gun Runner - Time To Abolish The Unconstitutional BATFE

  1. #21

    Congress is trying to turn BATFE Debacle into reason for more gun control.

    ...Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke blamed America's gun laws on the illegal flow of U.S. guns into Mexico.
    "Yet as the six-month anniversary of Tucson approaches, we have still seen no change in our nation's weak or non-existent gun laws," he said. "We still have no federal law criminalizing gun trafficking, banning assault weapons and magazines or closing the loopholes in our Brady Background Check system that help arm dangerous killers and supply gun traffickers...

    You believe this folks? Weak & non-existent gun laws in the U.S.? We have 22,000 and counting Second Amendment Infringements including Brady Bills ad nauseum...

    Gun Ban Groups Hold "Fast and Furious" Forum Friday, July 01, 2011 Working with the nation's top anti-gun activists to divert attention from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' "Fast and Furious" scandal, U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), ranking member on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, held a "forum" on Thursday, June 30 to address what he sees as too narrow a focus in the ongoing investigation of the controversial program and by the committee's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).
    Not surprisingly, Rep. Cummings and his allies contend that Mexico's violent crime problem is due to the supposed lack of gun control laws in the U.S. NRA and others have refuted this ridiculous claim on numerous occasions.
    The forum comes just weeks after Chairman Issa held a series of hearings on the reckless operation that pushed Arizona gun stores to sell thousands of guns to suspicious buyers, despite objections from dealers and BATFE field agents alike.
    Among those participating in the forum were anti-gun stalwarts Kristen Rand, legislative director of the Violence Policy Center, and Paul Helmke, the soon-to-be-ex-president of the Brady Campaign. Unsurprisingly, the groups tried to exploit the Mexican crime situation in an effort to advance their anti-gun political agendas and attempt to gain relevancy. For example, according to a FoxNews.com story reporting on the forum, the Brady Campaign's Helmke blamed America's gun laws for the illegal flow of U.S. guns into Mexico, saying, "As the six-month anniversary of Tucson approaches, we have still seen no change in our nation's weak or non-existent gun laws. We still have no federal law criminalizing gun trafficking, banning assault weapons and magazines or closing the loopholes in our Brady Background Check system that help arm dangerous killers and supply gun traffickers."
    Perhaps most absurdly, during the forum's question and answer session, VPC's Rand claimed that "No one wants to ban 'standard' rifles, shotguns or handguns." VPC itself, of course, has long supported a ban on handguns, and the group's director, Josh Sugarmann, is a former staff member of another handgun ban group.
    The Fox News article further reports that Rep. Issa is questioning Rep. Cummings' timing and motive in holding the forum.
    "This is a predictable maneuver from a minority that has sought to obstruct the investigation into Justice Department sanctioned gunwalking," Issa spokeswoman Becca Glover Watkins told FoxNews.com. "It will not affect the committee's continued focus on a reckless operation that has been linked to deaths on both sides of the border."
    That investigation should continue until it gets full answers to the many troubling questions "Fast and Furious" has raised so far.

    Nope, Obama is a democrat. The main stream media is more interested in digging up dirt on GOP candidates that might defeat their chosen one. Gun Runner is of no interest to them. Besides more gun control is what they want.

    Before it started of course in his daily report given him in the "Situation Room"
    White House Situation Room - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anybody actually believe the President & Secretary of State & Attorney General would not have first hand knowledge of an intentional plan to send 1000's of weapons into a neighboring foreign country? Something that could and has caused a international incident? Notwithstanding, deaths of American Citizens?

    What was that Obama said a while back? "The Buck Stops Here" meaning with him...

    Don't depend on the NRA for "tooth and nail" anti-gun control, anti-rogue government agency fighting. Here's just ONE example of many available: http://jpfo.org/pdf/nraletter.pdf (opens as a PDF file).

    It's a letter from the NRA back to jpfo in regards to being questioned about the BATF, along with a list of questions jpfo has for the NRA in response...
