While stopping short of blaming a factually non-existent out of control weapons use on cowardly white folks, race-baiting fear-monger Eric Holder does take it upon himself to let us know that the reason behind wanting to ban assault weapons is all those damn Mexicans:
I met yesterday with Attorney General Medina Mora of Mexico, and we discussed the unprecedented levels of violence his country is facing because of their enforcement efforts.The ABC News article reports that the Obama Administration is seeking to "cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border."
Isn't it nice to know that the more things (Hopen)Change, the more they stay the same?
Let's continue to expand federal government authority and shred the constitution here folks.
Putting aside the obvious fact that if Mexican drug cartels want automatic weapons, they are going to get them whether from a legal store in the United States or from the black market, the purpose of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was so that the people would be able to remain armed sufficiently to protect themselves, not only from violent criminals on their own, but also from an oppressive government. While it may seem difficult for many people to believe that assault rifles are necessary for the common person to be able to procure, the fact of the matter is that if the people of the United States ever wish to be able to protect themselves from the imposition of martial law that will eventually be implemented to stem the tide of a fear created and spread by the Federal Government, we need to be allowed access to the same level of weaponry that the military possesses.
After inheriting a tidy economic crisis, Barack Obama is playing the Politics of Fear as we have never seen before. Rest assured he intends to stoke the fire as long as possible until what may now seem like a few glowing embers of crisis has become a raging inferno of panic and catastrophe.
The 2nd Amendment was put into place in order to ensure that the citizens of this country could rise up with vengeance and furious anger to overthrow an overreaching and overly oppressive government. As our President does nothing but expand the size of the Federal Government almost exponentially on a daily basis, now is the time, more than ever, that we must fight for our right to keep and bear arms.
