    Another Anti-Gun Obama Nominee Confirmed By Harry Reid & Co.

    Just when you thought the news coming from Washington couldn’t get any worse, we learn that another radical voice will be joining the President’s inner circle.

    First, there was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who blamed the U.S. for the 9-11 attacks and later screeched “God damn America” in a sermon. Then there was the self-avowed communist (Van Jones) who was nominated for the Green Jobs Czar, but later had to step down in disgrace. Now, there’s an extreme animal rights activist who wants to take away our guns and get Bambi to sue us in court.

    That’s right … this latest czar wants animals to sue people in court for the creatures’ pain and suffering! No doubt, he holds some of the kookiest views you will ever hear.

    His name is Cass Sunstein, and he is a friend of Barack Obama. They go way back to their days in Chicago together.
    Earlier this month, the U.S. Senate confirmed Sunstein as the President’s “Regulatory Czar,” which is the nickname for the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. His views are way out of the American mainstream.

    For starters, Sunstein believes in regulating hunting out of existence. He told a Harvard audience in 2007 that “we ought to ban hunting.” And in The Rights of Animals: A Very Short Primer (2002), he said:
    I think we should go further … the law should impose further regulation on hunting, scientific experiments, entertainment, and (above all) farming to ensure against unnecessary animal suffering. It is easy to imagine a set of initiatives that would do a great deal here, and indeed European nations have moved in just this direction. There are many possibilities. (Italics are his emphasis.)

    If that’s all Sunstein believed, he would be dangerous and extreme, but not necessarily kooky. Unfortunately, when you look at WHY he wants to restrict hunting, this is where he goes beyond extreme.

    In Sunstein’s world, animals should have just as many rights as people … and they should be able to sue humans in court!
    “We could even grant animals a right to bring suit without insisting that animals are persons, or that they are not property,” Sunstein said on page 11 of Animal Rights: Current Debates and New Directions (2004).

    Well, that’s a relief … he is at least willing to concede that animals are not persons! But he would still have animals suing humans, apparently with more enlightened humans representing the cuddly critters.
    Imagine returning from a successful hunting trip … only to find out that you’ve been subpoenaed for killing your prize. Who knows, maybe Sunstein would have the family of the dead animal serving as witnesses in court!

    By the way, if you’re wondering what he thinks about the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, you won’t be surprised to know that Sunstein is a huge supporter of gun control.

    In Radicals in Robes: Why Extreme Right-Wing Courts are Wrong for America (2005), Sunstein says:
    Almost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine…. [O]n the Constitution’s text, fundamentalists [that is, gun rights supporters] should not be so confident in their enthusiasm for invalidating gun control legislation.
    Hmm, what part of “shall not be infringed” does Sunstein not understand?

    Imagine the power that Sunstein could have as the Regulatory Czar. He could bring about changes in the regulations that affect hunting, gun control and farming. In short, he could make life hell for many Americans.

    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 as new “taxes” that will “nudge” consumers away from purchasing firearms or engaging in the shooting sports.
    Cass Sunstein is way out of step with the American people, and his radicalism could greatly impact the lives of millions.
    It seems that the more things change in Washington, the less spare change -- and fewer rights -- Americans will be able to enjoy.

    To be clear and fair the same Eight RINO's that have been selling us out all year, lock-step with Obama & Company voted for this piece of work...

    Every stinking Democrat voted for this fubar...
    Even those that supposedly claim to support the Constitution and Second Amendment!

    We have a record for all time that there is NOT ONE SINGLE DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS THAT TRULY SUPPORTS THE SECOND AMENDMENT AS IT WAS WRITTEN AND INTENDED BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS...

    Fire Congress in 2010!

    ExpertClick - Nevada U.S. Senator Gets Two-Faced Award for Washington Behavior, Notes Gun Law Expert

    "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is getting the two-faced Janus Award," gun rights expert John M. Snyder announced here today. "This recognizes Reid's attempt to have it both ways regarding the rights of law-abiding firearm owners"

    A former National Rifle Association editor, Snyder is Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Shotgun News last year named him the senior rights activist in Washington.

    The mock award is named for the two-faced ancient Roman god Janus. "Harry has demonstrated by his outstanding hypocrisy that he is most deserving of this distinction," explained Snyder.

    "On the one hand, he has been able to cite his Senate votes for pro-gun legislative initiatives as evidence of his commitment to Second Amendment rights. On the other hand, his active and successful shepherding through the Senate of the nominations of Eric Holder as Attorney General and Sonia Sotomayor as Supreme Court Justice demonstrate his long range support for those opposed to Nevadans' and all Americans' gun rights"

    Snyder pointed out that Holder advocates reinstitution of the failed Clinton-era ban on semiautomatic firearms. He noted also that Sotomayor during her confirmation hearings stated she did not know if an individual has a right to self-defense.

    "Holder and Sotomayor both were nominated by President Barack Hussein Obama," said Snyder, and "Nevada's senior Senator ushered them through Capitol Hill like a good Obama lapdog. According to Rasmussen Reports on voter attitudes, Obama's approval ratings have been taking a real nosedive. Maybe Reid's will, too.

    "Polls, town hall meetings and citizen protests in Washington and throughout the country show the American people oppose Obama big government policies and those in Congress who support them. A broad and deep political upheaval is in the making"
