    I have forwarded this heads up to gun shops in several states that I have done business with. Total BS.

    Yesterday, another radical extremist joined the ranks of the Obama administration.

    Cass Sunstein, who is an old friend of Barack Obama, is now our new Regulatory Czar. You will recall that he is the guy who wants animals to sue hunters and other Americans.

    He also supports gun control.

    While his nomination as head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs passed the Senate by a 57-40 vote yesterday, the REAL vote was actually much closer -- losing only by three votes.

    That vote occurred on Wednesday, when Republicans tried to kill his nomination using a filibuster -- a procedure which required Democrats to muster 60 votes. Every Democrat (except for three) voted for Sunstein. The three Senators who voted against Sunstein on the filibuster were Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), Mark Pryor (D-AR) and James Webb (D-VA).

    Unfortunately, a handful of Republicans crossed party lines to help Sunstein overcome the procedural roadblock. The Republican traitors who crossed party lines on Wednesday were Senators Bob Bennett (UT), Sue Collins (ME), Judd Gregg (NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Richard Lugar (IN) and Olympia Snowe (ME).

    Dishonorable mention goes to Republican-turned-Democrat Senator Arlen Specter (PA) who voted for Sunstein -- as well as Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR), who waited until the end of the voting period to finally cast his ballot against Sunstein.

    Regarding Pryor, you will remember that in August, he waited until the last minute to cast his vote in favor of the concealed carry reciprocity amendment. When it became clear the anti-gunners had a comfortable margin of victory, Sen. Pryor actually switched his vote at the last minute.

    GOA members will be receiving a newsletter soon that shows an actual picture of the Senate tally sheet, which documents Pryor's vote switch. (Not receiving GOA's newsletter? Go to Join GOA Online With our Secure Online Membership form. and become a GOA member today!)

    The cloture vote on Wednesday -- ending the filibuster on Sunstein -- was 63-35. You can see how your two Senators voted on the filibuster and on final passage by going to take-action on the GOA website.

    As the Regulatory Czar, Sunstein will provide the final touches on new federal regulations. No firearm or ammunition needs to be banned outright -- that would be too transparent. As the coauthor of Nudge (2008), Sunstein has already laid out how "choice architects" should carefully guide (or nudge) Americans into making better choices.

    So with a little regulation here... a little regulation there... Sunstein can strengthen the iron fist of the federal gun police (otherwise known as the BATFE). Or, he can implement additional federal requirements which will result in firearm and ammunition manufacturers paying more for their merchandise.

    Of course, these costs will be passed on to the consumer as new "taxes" that will "nudge" Americans away from purchasing firearms or engaging in the shooting sports.

    In short, be prepared for more "change" from Washington and less spare change in your pockets.


    Be vigilant about BATFE spying!

    GOA has received a report from a very well-known journalist at a big newspaper that the FBI and BATFE are teaming up together to get off-the-record information on gun owners. The project, known as Vigilant Eagle, involves federal agents going to gun stores and doing "meet and greets" with shop owners in the hopes of obtaining informal information on people buying guns.

    If you are a shop owner who is contacted by the FBI or BATFE as part of this program -- or if you are a gun owner who becomes aware that this program is going on in your area -- please contact GOA by going to here and giving us the details of what you know. The journalist wants to run a story exposing Vigilant Eagle to the entire country.

    **** Lugar is a piece of *****. He is a coward who wont respond to his critics, and is a disgrace to Hoosiers. He has voted for Harold Koh, Sotomayor, and Cass Sunstein. Any other hoosiers here...please let him know he will be out of a job next time he is up for election. He also voted against the reciprocity amendment.

    The same can be said for the piece of crap that is Kay Hagan of NC. She couldn't kiss O's a$$ any harder; votes exactly as he says and totally ignores constituents. She was too afraid to hold a town hall meeting in her own freakin' STATE, she held it unannounced in DC, then told Congress NC was all for Obamacare. You are out, first chance we get, Kay you traitor.

    As a resident of Utah, I had the misfortune of being betrayed by TWO Republicans - Bob Bennett and Orrin Hatch. This is the email I sent to each of them.

    I am very disapointed that you voted Yea to confirm Cass Sunstein, a confirmed progressive radical who opposes the second amendment and would like to outlaw hunting. Please explain why you were one of seven Republicans who crossed party lines to confirm one of President Obama's radical nominations. Further, you helped overcome a fillibuster to prevent this irresponble appointment. Whether I actively support you or actively oppose you in future elections will be dependant on your answer. I will consider a lack of response to be the same as an unacceptable answer.

    I was just getting ready to post this too. I hadn't gotten through my email until this morning, so I didn't know if anyone had seen it yet or not. Glad to see we are all on our toes.
