H.R. 2159 is yet another grab for guns by the government (http://www.examiner.com/x-2944-Denver-Gun-Rights-Examiner%7Ey2009m6d25-HR-2159-is-yet-another-grab-for-guns-by-the-government)

Representative Peter King of New York seeks to unbalance the system our constitution created by shifting the balance of power to the executive branch and at the same time making it easier to block gun ownership. The snappy title to H.R. 2159 is "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009". Who wouldn't vote for that? This bill seeks to add verbiage to the federal laws on US Code 18, section 922 which deals with unlawful acts when dealing with firearms by licensed FFL dealers. It adds words that have the effect of making Attorney General Eric Holder the final arbiter of whether or not anyone can pass the Instant Background Check and buy a gun.

The good thing is it's been in committee for a long time now, and very few cosponsors.

It will probably die where it sits, but it's worth watching.

It's a Carolyn McCarthy thing, she does something like this all the time. She's insane.

I know the article has spin on it to put Eric Holder in by name, and make it sound like an Obama administration deal, but it's not.

Charlie Rangel, Carolyn McCarthy and Peter King (all NY state Reps by the way) are the ones behind this.

And they keep getting re-elected by idiots. The only time it will end is when the people get smart enough to elect someone with some sense.
