Holder Calls for new Assault Weapons Ban


At a press conference announcing the arrests, Holder also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.

Ah, the Mexican gun canard rears its head once again. I told you it was dogma and for this specific reason. You know what else would keep guns out of Mexico? Anyone?

A fence.

Update: Lying to win: Of course, the very next thing he says is that the cartels in Mexico have been using “automatic weapons and grenades”, which is a direct quote.

Tam: I think the reaction to this is going to depend largely on how they try to go about it. Nobody took to the streets in ’89 or ’94, after all. But the ’94 ban was carefully crafted to keep people from taking to the streets, and it still cost half of Congress their jobs.

Yeah, it was kinda snuck in there but, then, enemies of freedom can’t exactly be forthright, now can they?

    The Clinton AWB didn’t just sneak in. It took about a year or so of back and forth before it finally passed.

    I don’t really see it as desirable to keep guns out of Mexico. All that does is give a monopoly on force to the thugs and, at the risk of being repetitious, the government.

    If they want to reduce the number of people killed in “drug-related violence”, maybe they should address whatever it is that causes people to be violent about drugs.

    I don’t like seeing our weaponry go south either, albeit for different reasons.

    As you would say, more on Democrats and guns.

    So the Holder idea is to attack the Bill of Rights and American citizens because of violent crime in Mexico…which is and has been for some time, spilling over the border.

    Hey! Do your job! Obey your oath and “protect the States against invasion” (Article IV, Section 4, U.S. Constitution But, just as Bush said, “we can’t militarize the border” and there will be NO “Change” to that policy with Obama . Instead, attack the RKBA of citizens and leave teh boreders undefended.

    The reason is in Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution…It’s “treason”.

    about damn time. Now make consumption of pot a felony and we’ll finally see mass murdering in Mexico be brought to a halt.

    Sad to see close family members have to witness people getting blasted by ak-47’s at a walmart (juarez mex) in mid day, while others are harassed w/death threats for not paying “extortion money

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
