Does anyone have any insite in this? January 19th, 2009 10:14 am | by Marc Gallagher At first I felt the huge demand to purchase guns immediately following Barack Obamas victory was an overreaction, but with the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General now Im not so sure. The Gun Owners of America exist to stir up the pot, but Ive found they are always more right on guns than the NRA. A few days ago they released a statement strongly opposing Eric Holders nomination urging people to write their Senators. "The incoming Presidents choice for U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, is an anti-gun extremist who has assailed gun owners since his days in the Bill Clinton administration. Holder, who served as Deputy Attorney General from 1997-2001, supports a 3-day waiting period for handgun purchases, one-gun-a-month rationing, licensing and registration of all gun owners, mandatory so-called smart gun technology, a lifetime gun ban for certain juvenile offenses and regulating gun shows out of existence." So as it becomes increasingly clear Holder will be our next Attorney General it may be time to start stocking up on firearms before it becomes much more difficult to purchase them. It cant hurt to heed GOAs advice and let your Senator know your own opposition to such an anti-Constitutional Attorney General. Havent we learned our lesson from the Bush administration to oppose Attorney Generals who continually spit upon the Constitution where it is politically expedient? Apparently not.
