    Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

    Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban
    The Ban Expired in 2004 During the Bush Administration.
    By JASON RYAN
    WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2009

    SHARE The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.

    Wednesday Attorney General Eric Holder said that the Obama administration will seek to reinstitute the assault weapons ban which expired in 2004 during the Bush administration.

    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 reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder told reporters.

    So... does anyone STILL think gun owners are paranoid?

    "I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum." Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.


    I'm glad that they're using Mexico as a reason to trample the citizens rights.

    It will be interesting to see what if anything happens in all the states threatening the use of the 10th amendment and secession if the gov tries to do another AWB.

    And what's even more funny... the weapons being used in mexico... Select fire / Full Auto weapons... are damn near impossible to get here for a law abiding citizen.... Considering the National Firearms Act is still very much in enforcement.... and your average citizen can't just goto walmart and buy a full auto ak47. I also didn't know that your us citizen could go to the local gun store and buy grenades / a grenade launcher... I wish I could go buy such stuff with ease... like the media would like everyone to think of.

    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    Seems to me that responsible gun owners, hunters, and law enforcement personnel would be first in line to advocate the control of assault weapons. These weapons have no practical use beyond murder. Firearms enthusiasts should take the lead in limiting access to dangerous weapons because they understand the responsibility and dangers of gun ownership.

    There was an article in the New Yorker about the inventer of the AA12 automatic shotgun. Take a look at the video of this streetsweeper, and then explain to me why the NRA would approve its sale?

    This is a statement based in utter and willful ignorance.

    I'm curious, too.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Please tell me where I can buy one?

    Also, please tell me about the process of purchasing one... and how much it will cost... (think in numbers greater than $20k USD). Not to mention the time involved in getting a class 3 license.

    And let me guess, your next move will be... "Well, we should just let everyone buy tanks or nuclear bombs!!!"

    If somebody broke into my house armed with a 9mm, I sure would like that AA12 in my hands.

    Aside from the fact that the AA12 isn't the only 'assault weapon'...

    ...and that The Obama himself told us we didnt need to worry and there was no reason to run out and buy 'assault weapons'...

    The AA12 can be used for any purpose that any other gun can be used. You might not be able to -legally- hunt with it because of the magazine, but it CAN be used for hunting, should you choose to do so.
