Obama Administration To Implement More Gun Control Without Congress.

When I started out this morning, I was going to do a piece on Eric Holder and the calls for his removal. But, there’s just so much incompetency and so little time.


Thank you, Katie Pavlich and The Tipsheet. 
Another day, another power grab around Congress from the Obama administration.
Great news! The Obama administration plans to implement gun control measures  “gun safety measures,” through the Justice Department without Congress.
Spokesman Jay Carney said that the new steps would be made public “in the near future.” He didn’t offer details, but people involved in talks at the Justice Department to craft the new measures said they expected to see something in the next several weeks. Whatever is proposed is not expected to involve legislation or take on major issues, like banning assault weapons, but could include executive action to strengthen the background check system or other steps. 
 “The president directed the attorney general to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve American safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights,” Carney said Thursday. “That process is well under way at the Department of Justice, with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues, and we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future.”

“Or other steps.” According the Carney, new gun control measures are being pushed by the Obama administration to prevent “another Tucson.” The problem is, Obama administration officials, along with anti-gun special interests groups, are focusing on the guns, rather than criminals. And let’s not forget, Jared Loughner, the clinically insane man who shot 19 people on Jan. 8 in Tucson, Ariz. killing 6 and wounding 13 others, had multiple encounters with Loughner for issuing death threats to a radio host among other things before the shooting, meaning Dupnik allowed him to slip through the cracks of law enforcement more than once. Dupnik chose to do nothing about prior complaints about Loughner, but once again, anti-gun zealots are refusing to focus on the real problems: incompetent law enforcement and criminals. 
It is no surprise anti-gun advocates and the Obama administration aren’t going to let the Jan. 8 crisis go to waste. We saw this coming.
There are videos inserted here in the original story, if you want to view them. 
Meanwhile, Congressman Issa updates us on the Obama Justice Department Operation Fast and Furious, an operation that allowed U.S. federal government officials to break and ignore gun laws already in place. 
(In the first video, Mr. Hannity refers to Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious as the same program, they are not. Project Gunrunner was implemented under the Bush Administration and involved allowing straw purchasers to buy weapons under surveillance but then those purchasers were immediately arrested in the United States.

Operation Fast and Furious was started in 2009 and involved ATF agents allowing straw purchasers to buy guns under surveillance for drug cartels and then take them across the border into Mexico. Those guns are now lost until they are found at crime scenes.) 
So there you have it, the totally incompetent and corrupt Obama Justice Department is in charge of coming up with ideas about how to make America safe from guns, because ideas from this DOJ have worked out so well in the past.

    I don’t believe, for one second, that this statement reflects their ultimate intent. Those on the left are masters of taking away our rights, incrementally, aka “Frog Boiling”. In this case it will involve, modified, background checks* to begin with, then adding restrictions, little by little until total confiscation is achieved. Of course, this will do nothing for public safety except, probably, diminish it. Nevertheless, Obamaphiles will love it as they do everything else in the “Fools Paradise” he has provided for them.

    If anyone else reading this is credentialed in the discipline of “Abnormal Psychology” would you please explain the mental defect(s) (in this case mass hysteria) that results in supporting a leader [sic] who was not only completely un-qualified in the first place but who has proven, time and time again, that he can’t manage anything except for a campaign in his own behalf?

    *I WOULD like to see immediate back ground checks made on B.O. and Holder

  2. JB, in response to the "mental defects" attitude, I would imagine it's that "Free Lunches and Nickel Beer" syndrome.

    As far as background checks on Obimbo and Holder... HA! Dream on! I found something pretty good here, though http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder
    "...Holder was also involved in Clinton's decision to reduce the criminal sentences of 16 members of the Boricua Popular Army, an organization that has been categorized by the FBI as a terrorist organization. The clemency request was initially opposed in 1996 by U.S. Pardons Attorney Margaret Love. When Holder was elevated to Deputy Attorney General in 1997, he was asked to reexamine the issue by three members of Congress. In July 1999, Holder recommended clemency to Clinton with a report from then U.S. Pardons Attorney Roger Adams that neither supported nor opposed clemency. A month later, Clinton granted clemency. According to The Hartford Courant, the grant of clemency was unusual because it was opposed by the FBI, the federal prosecutor and the victims. According to the newspaper, it was also unusual because before the commutations, the Boricua Popular Army members were not required to repudiate their actions and were not asked to provide any information concerning the whereabouts of Victor Manuel Gerena, a co-conspirator and one of the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, or the millions of dollars stolen by the group in a 1983 robbery of Wells Fargo in West Hartford, Connecticut.[21]"
    Taking into account that Holder has worked for crooks most of his career, what would you expect?

  3. INVESTMENT TIP OF THE DAY

    If you have not done so already, you should add to your portfolio a substantial number of shares of Kraft Foods, the maker of KOOL- AID. For 52% of the population it has replaced Oxygen!
