bulletin from SAF plus posters comments

Rec'd the following today, and wonder as to who might this "we" be, and why "we want them registered", other than to facilitate confiscation of "them", them being firearms owned by the law abiding citizens of this country. After all, I presume that there already are myriad file cabinets just full paper, not to mention computer "data bases" full of bits and bytes scattered throughout various government agencies, departments and bureaus, so who needs more, other than to put them to nefarious uses.

Ladies and gentlemen, have you spoken with your employees lately, those you send to Washington, D.C., to do "the peoples business", or might it be to make a mess thereof? Either way, have you recently had a word or two with them? They likely do not hear what you personally might have had to say, however I suspect that they get to see tally sheets that characterize or categorize comment from constituents. I expect that they do take note of such things, for there is always that next election. By the way, it isn't a question of Democrats v. Republicans, for interested parties need to find out where their representatives stand on matters of importance to them, whichever party label they might wear. Action taken on election day is one thing, and it's important, but your reps need to hear from those who employ them and the more often, likely the better.

BELLEVUE, WA – Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on April 7 acknowledged that gun registration is on her agenda, days after Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters in Mexico that the Second Amendment would not “stand in the way” of administration plans to crack down on alleged gun trafficking to Mexico.

“These are alarming remarks from Speaker Pelosi and Attorney General Holder,” said Second Amendment Foundation founder Alan Gottlieb. “It appears that the Obama administration and Capitol Hill anti-gunners have dropped all pretences about their plans for gun owners’ rights, and it looks like the gloves are coming off.”

Pelosi’s revelation came during an interview on ABC’s Good Morning, America. While insisting that Congress “never denied” the gun rights of American Citizens, Pelosi told Roberts, “We want them registered. We don’t want them crossing state linesÂ…” Gottlieb noted that citizens’ rights do not stop at state lines.

“But that doesn’t really matter,” he observed. “History has shown that around the world, registration has always led to confiscation.”

In Mexico, according to the Wall Street Journal, Holder was asked if the administration might encounter constitutional issues as it tries to crack down on alleged gun trafficking. His response: “I don’t think our Second Amendment will stand in the way of efforts we have begun and will expand upon.”

“These comments belie administration promises and Democrat rhetoric that party leaders respect the rights of law-abiding Americans to own the firearm of their choice,” Gottlieb said. “They imposed registration of semi-autos in Pelosi’s California and it led to a ban, but it certainly didn’t disarm criminals, like the convicted felon who killed four Oakland police officers last month. We know from Holder that the Obama administration wants to renew the nationwide ban on such firearms, but that won’t prevent crime, either.

“The administration and Congressional anti-gunners have declared war on gun rights,” Gottlieb said. “The press seems deliberately blind to the statements from Pelosi and Holder, who blame our gun rights for their incompetence in dealing with crime. More than 90 million gun owners haven’t hurt anybody, and they are tired of being treated like criminals.”
