    Obama Administration's New Proposed Gun Regulation for Border States Met With Biparti

    Instead of using the situation in Mexico to make the border more secure the anti-2nd amendment president wishes to use the situation in Mexico to **** on the constitution. Its none of the government damn business what weapons or how many weapons someone buys.

    The Obama administration's plan to force new reporting requirements on thousands of gun dealers near the Mexico border is under fire from members of his own party.

    At least three Democrats in the Senate and several more in the House are voicing opposition to a proposed regulation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that would require about 8,500 gun dealers in four states – California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas – to report gun sales of two or more high-powered rifles sold within five consecutive business days.

    The proposal isn't connected in any way to the mass shooting in Arizona last weekend that left six people dead and 14 others wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., because the suspect used a handgun, which is already covered under these reporting requirements.

    The new regulation would cover semiautomatic rifles greater than .22 caliber with detachable magazines.

    Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, has asked the ATF to withdraw its request to the White House for emergency authority to enact the regulation.
    "While I understand the importance of cracking down on violence and gun trafficking along the U.S.-Mexico border, this wide-reaching regulation would punish law-abiding American gun owners and impede their Second Amendment rights," Begich wrote in a letter last week to ATF Acting Director Kenneth Melson. "Instead, we must secure our border and target Mexican drug cartels, as well as participating offenders in the United States."

    The proposal also faces opposition from Montana's two Democratic senators, Max Baucus and Jon Tester, as well as 36 House members in both parties who say the regulation would subject gun dealers to burdensome requirements.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A requirement to report sales does not in any way violate the second amendment right to keep and bear arms. There is no infringement of the second amendment here, sorry.

    It also wouldn't do squat good towards anything.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Any new requirement is questionable as is anything Obama does.

    As I see it add any regulation to anything having to do your rights is just a foot in the door.

    I'm sorry but I do not trust Obama as far as i can throw an Abrams Tank.

    Everything he does is calculated and not in the long term interest of us our our Nation as a whole.

    He is Anti-American as it teaches in his Black Liberation Theology.

    I wish people would take the time to look into Rev. Write and what he preaches and Obama sat and listened to for 20 years. Match that up with his being raised by Communists ans you start to get a picture of who he is and why he has surrounded himself with like thinking Radicals.

    He uses the speeches written for for him to spew his propaganda and relies on the 5th column media to back his every move with hate mongering rhetoric like from Matthews, Olbermann, Es Schultz and the pundits on ABC,CBS, NBC, and CNN.

    I'd like to know what's to be reported. Is it just the sale itself or does it include who the guns were sold to so the Fed government can keep tabs on them? I find the latter scenario scarier than people buying guns.

    Yes it is. It's the government's business to keep its citizens safe, and with religious fanatics all over middle America walking around with pistols and shotguns on their person, the populace isn't very safe now is it?

    So, the government has several clear-cut and rightful reasons to limit and restrict the sale of weapons.

    A superficial analysis is worthless.

    The government most likely already knows what guns you buy, when you bought them, the price of the gun(s), and how you paid for them.

    At least three Democrats in the Senate and several more in the House are voicing opposition to a proposed regulation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that would require about 8,500 gun dealers in four states – [b]California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas[b] – to report gun sales of two or more high-powered rifles sold within five consecutive business days.
    The only problem I have with it is this: Why is he specifically targeting those four states?

    I wonder if law enforcement officers would agree with you on this. Regardless, that's an entirely different issue than a second amendment violation.

    This is the typical liberal response to a problem, create more paperwork. The reality is that every sale is reported to the FBI, along with the name of the individual making the purchase. It has been that way for decades. If they want to know about multiple purchases of a specific type of gun, all they need to do is search their database.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
