The Messiah is a Liah!

The Mesiah

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to yesterday’s remarks by Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder that the president will seek to reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms, Gottlieb said  “We warned America that Obama’s ‘support’ for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric,” he stated, “and now Holder’s disclosure has confirmed it. Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying.”

 U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s response to a reporter’s question on weapons’ regulations, Holder said, “Well, as President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to re-institute the ban on the sale of assault weapons. I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.”

Holder refused to speculate when regulations would move forward, likely no law would be passed, instead a decree will be handed down from mount Olympus.   “There are obviously a number of things that are — that have been taking up a substantial amount of [Obama’s] time, and so, I’m not sure exactly what the sequencing will be,”  Holder said.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF)  in response to Attorney General Eric Holder’s comments on Feb. 25, 2009, about reinstating the assault weapons ban, NSSF issued a press release reminding Congress and all Americans that such a ban would result in a loss of jobs, have no effect on reducing crime and would deprive millions of law-abiding gun owners of their Constitutional right to own the firearm of their choice.

History is a good teacher.  We know that the Clinton Gun Ban had ZERO effect on crime in the United States, or Mexico for that matter.  There is no reason to reinstate this restrictive and useless ban except to limit gun ownership.   Assault weapons as defined in the Clinton Ban were involved in less than 1% of homicides before the assault weapons ban took effect in 1994. The same is true as of 1998. (1)    As of 1998, about 13% of homicides involve knives, 5% involve bludgeons, and 6% are committed with hands and feet. (1)    The Clinton administration prosecuted 4 people in 1997 and 4 people in 1998 for violating the assault weapons ban. (2)

Heller Decision is Continues Making a Difference.

The Village Council of  Winnetka, Illinois voted unanimously to repeal the Council’s 20-year-old handgun ban.  This is the third Chicago area township to drop an unconstitutional complete ban on handguns following the U.S. Supreme Court decision last summer in the District of Columbia vs. Heller case.  The Court held that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right to be exercised by any American who wishes to.

Chicago itself is still defying the decisson and is in a court battle with the NRA.  It seem Mayor Richard Daley would rather waste taxpayer money fighting a loosing battle than allow American citizens to exercise God given rights.  My favorite quote on this subject comes from Steve Chapman who wrote for “America’s Frist Freedom” an NRA publication Feb. 2009 issue,  “The city, however, notes that the nation’s capital is a federal enclave, and that the court did not say states must respect the Second Ammendment.  That’s true.  The court’s ruling also did not say that China is in Asia, which doesn’t make it part of South America.”

What part of “Shall not be infringed” do they not understand?
