    Does anyone have any insite in this?

    At first I felt the huge demand to purchase guns immediately following Barack Obama’s victory was an overreaction, but with the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General now I’m not so sure. The Gun Owners of America exist to stir up the pot, but I’ve found they are always more “right” on guns than the NRA. A few days ago they released a statement strongly opposing Eric Holder’s nomination urging people to write their Senators.

    "The incoming President’s 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 can’t hurt to heed GOA’s advice and let your Senator know your own opposition to such an anti-Constitutional Attorney General. Haven’t 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.

    National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Bill Introduced :clap2:

    Friday, January 23, 2009

    U.S. Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Rick Boucher (D-Va.), recently introduced H.R. 197-- the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2009"--a bill that would provide national recognition for valid state Right-to-Carry licensees.

    The bill would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state, to carry a concealed firearm in any other state if the permit holder meets certain criteria. In states that issue permits, a state's laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. In states that do not issue carry permits, a federal standard would apply. The bill would not create a federal licensing system; it would simply require the states to recognize each other's carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses.

    Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) is expected to introduce the Senate companion bill in the near future. Rep. Stearns has introduced such legislation since 1995.

    Please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 197! Story taken by NRA.

    Holder will again run to argue that the 2nd amendment does not constitute an INDIVIDUAL RIGHT, despite the recent SCOTUS decision to the contrary... He will of course, have to wait for a shift in the courts American/leftist ratio to do it; so in the mean time he'll lean on the spurious 'reasonable regulation' rants and I suspect he'll trot out another WACO type episode wherein the ATF forces someone to defend themselves against socialist tyranny and in doing so try to show that exchange of gun fire, ending in the deaths of innocent Americans who were forced to defend themselves, to be an example of 'run away gun toting extremists 'abusing their government sponsored privilege to possess guns'; it might be a return to the Clinton-era spree of 'school shootings', they're always handy and quite effective; consider how they were the instrument used to disarm the Brits and Aussies... but without regard to how they choose to manipulate it, it will be said to be 'an abuse' which will constitute 'an emergency requiring STRINGENT, but ever so reasonable socio-regulations' protecting the collective from the individual right to own and use firearms... taking EVERY OPPORTUNITY to dismiss the respective individuals FAILURE to observe and maintain their inherent responsibilities to defend innocent life... be they the private citizen who misuses their right or the government employ or appointee..

    But yes... any time left-thinkers are lent power, there is ALWAYS reason to be concerned that your inalienable rights are about to be infringed upon or wholly usurped.
