Will Atty. Gen. Holder Turn Himself In?

More meaningless rhetoric from the Imperial Ruler (aka President Obama) today,  on executive orders and other demands that will do nothing to stop the kind of violence he and VP Biden want to stop, no matter how many cute children they use for props. The most intriguing statement was this one . . .

And finally, Congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement as it does its job. We should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. And we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this.

Considering that the Dept. of Justice and its ATF did exactly that in a program called Fast and Furious, I guess we can expect Eric Holder to turn himself in after rounding up all the others that were involved with it. Lucky for President Obama, the Freetown shooting did what Fast and Furious failed to do. It presented a crisis to jump on to. And when there’s an agenda involved, you just can’t let a crisis go to waste.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for anyone in the DOJ to pay any price for Fast and Furious. If the media isn’t interested in pursuing it, then it must not have happened.

Rep. Miller Upholds Oath To ‘Protect And Defend’

Within hours of the school shooting in Newtown, CT, the political Left have fed on the emotions of Americans to convince us obama_constitution_negative_libertiesthat they can stop this kind of crime if they can only ban so-called “assault weapons.” Problem for them is how to violate the Constitution and get away with it. That’s a BIG problem. Unlike our current President and his accomplices in this attempt, the mainstream media, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and VP Joe Biden, our U.S. House Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL1), takes his oath and the Constitution seriously.

What Miller says on this subject . . .

Interest groups, politicians, and the Administration should not be exploiting a national tragedy to abandon liberty in pursuit of political expedience and advantage, rather, we should all comprehensively examine the policies, practices, and culture which lead to mass violence. Additionally, any attempt by the President to enact gun control by executive order would be an obscene abuse of power, ungrounded in Constitutional authority, and tantamount to a violation of his oath to support and defend the Constitution.

For nearly 240 years, the right to keep and bear arms has stood the test of time, and I will continue to stand by those courageous citizens who follow in the footsteps of generations of American patriots and who through their sacrifice dare defend and protect the written words of our Founding Fathers.

Logic? Of The Anti-Gun Lobby

And by ‘Lobby’ I mean most of the media and lefty talk-radio. It’s about calling names and using hyperbole for measures that no one is advocating. It’s what the Left does. Not necessarily democrats. Just those that hold this ‘ban all guns’ and ‘ban assault weapons’ agenda.

For example . . .

It’s not just the ranters on the left, like MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, who recently called National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre “the lobbyist for mass murderers.” O’Donnell is a controversialist who says things like that all the time. So is CNN’s Piers Morgan, who told the Gun Owners of America chief Larry Pratt, “You are an unbelievably stupid man” and “You shame your country.”

And . . .

when a Republican congressman, Georgia’s Jack Kingston, argued on MSNBC recently that tough gun control laws haven’t prevented mass shootings in some European countries, the network’s anchor, Thomas Roberts, responded, “So, we need to just be complacent in the fact that we can send our children to school to be assassinated?”

semi-auto-rifleThen there’s Lefty talker Stephanie Miller and the Media Matters crowd that say, in response to NRA President Wayne LaPierre’s suggestion that there be a police presence in schools, (like we have here in Pensacola, FL, they are called ‘resource officers’),  “oh sure, like we can afford to have a cop in every classroom.” Nobody suggested a cop for every classroom. Proving that the Left will say whatever they need to say if it will advance their agenda. The facts don’t matter.

There are ways to save lives without banning guns. Do away with so-called ‘gun-free’ zones and get real with lawful ‘concealed carry.’ It’s already against the law for a mentally unstable person to buy a gun. But clearly, improvements can be made in the mental health field if it weren’t for the ACLU. Groups like them advocate for part of the Constitution. Not all of it. Make punishment meaningful for crimes committed with guns. A bad person with a gun can be stopped by a good person with a gun. Whether the good person wears a badge or a pocket protector, lives of fellow citizens can be protected.
