Back already? See how Holder confuses automatic weapons (AKA machine guns) with semi-auto rifles?
The part that I'm going to slash at is this paragraph taken from the ABC News piece that Bruce linked to:
Where have we heard of this lie before? Oh, that's right. From ABC News.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.
"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum." Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.
My question is when is that lying douche bag Eric Holder going to address the glaring loophole in our border? If Mexican gangs are able to smuggle overpriced semi-auto rifles into their country, and are able to smuggle people and drugs into our country, just how long do you think it's going to take for them to start smuggling RPGs, grenades, bet fed machine guns, and real AK47s that they got from bankrupt former soviet nations into the US in order to continue their drug trade?
You sure as hell can't get that shit here, and you know there's a huge market for it if the average cost of a AK47 in the US is $15,000.
Update: I didn't get a chance to read the second page of the article, but I notice another demon that raises its ugly head:
"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller," Holder said, referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Washington, D.C. v. Heller, which asserted the Second Amendment as an individual's right to own a weapon.I guess that would be two demons. The gun show loophole is not actually a loophole as gun dealers at gun shows have to follow federal regulations by law, which means they have to run a background check on gun buyers. The "unlicensed dealers" at gun shows that the Brady Campaign like to lie about don't have to follow federal regulations and run background checks for firearm purchases because they're not selling firearms, they're selling tools, books, military surplus, knives, etc. What they want you to think is that the occasional citizen walking around at a gun show with the Mosin-Nagant slung on his or her shoulder with a price tag is actually a unscrupulous arms dealer that is trying to find a bearded terrorist to sell the offending weapon to, instead of a free citizen looking to score an extra $100 in order to have enough money to purchase that Springfield Armory Operator he saw at table 14 - after a qualifying background check, of course.
The second thing is that silly "cop-killer" bullet nonsense. People eat that shit up because they don't know any better, and who could possibly be against something that saves cops, right? See here for a test that I did on this very subject that is actually the reason I started this blog.
There's no such thing as cop-killer bullets, and someone who is holding the position as the head law enforcement agent of this country should take the time to actually Google the subject before spouting ignorance.
