Fast and Furious backfired?

What should we learn from mistakes we make?

 

Should Eric Holder be held responsible for the deaths of citizens and border patrol agents that may have been killed because of this issue.

More calls for Eric Holder to resign amid allegations that he may have willfully lied to congress. Considering the mountain of evidence of the issues of competence, the unpopular stances where the justice department is pitted against the states rights in the constitution.

should the Justice department be suing states in court to allegedly take away their right to protect its people?

Does the Constitution not have a Tenth Amendment.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

 That seems straight forward and simple to understand.

Yet we have a man in charge of the Justice Department, that does not understand something as simple as the Tenth Amendment, what is wrong with that picture. 

Yes, some argue that immigration is a federal task, but is it solely such a task, when you have borders of each state, then does not a state have to protest its people?

Are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people….

When you look at this you have to say that a man has a right to protect his property his children, his land, his car, from being spoiled by an enemy, the same is true of the state, each official must protect its people.

So now we have Fast and Furious, which was allegedly designed to provide provender to the enemy, but perhaps caused a lot of other problems.

Did Fast and Furious do the very thing that the liberal media news was promoting in a story about how Mexico was complaining about how Guns were coming from the US, and ending up being used in violent crimes in Mexico, (remember that)

The liberal media was gearing up for a crucifixion of the Second Amendment to the constitution.

So where are they now, on this news story?

Why are they not crying about how American Gun shops are selling guns to be used in crimes south of the border?

Could it be that they no longer are interested in a true story that explains why there were so many complaints from Mexico.

Could it be that when the news story starts to hit home, (chickens or otherwise) that the liberal media is no longer interested in doing a news story about this fast and furious scandal.

In so many ways, this is a terrible thing to have done, and while some say that it has been done in the past, but in the past the level of violence was not the same south of the border so the idea that you send arms into a country that is already having so many problems with violence is just well crazy and insane.

 So the goal of this fast and furious, was what really, to track where guns went and how many people they killed?

Seems sort of a strange situation to be in when you want to try and take away other peoples rights to
keep and bear arms.

It seems that the constitution is not the problem here but men who would stand up and lie to the American people.

It seems like the old saying still holds true, that people make the decision to do harm to others, not the things with which they choose to do that harm, so you see attempting to ban guns or take away the second amendment, would not change much of anything, because since the beginning of time men have known how to be violent, if you take away every gun in the world, they would pick up sticks and stones as in the past and they would wage wars upon one another with a vigorous attention to detail.

No, this kind of thing is just a sad reminder that we are human and we make mistakes.

The constitution is still the best guide we have for standing up for America…

Guns Banned.

Just received this email and it is something of interest, just what is Washington

doing and why are they doing it?

Is this the hope and the change you voted for?

Dear fellow Patriot,

Nearly 1 million American rifles.

Banned by a stroke of Barack Obama’s pen.

In a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama Administration quietly banned the re-importation of nearly one million American made M1 Garand and Carbine rifles.

The M1 Garand, developed in the late 1930’s, carried the United States through World War II seeing action in every major battle.

General Patton at the time called the M1 Garand “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”

The rifle is largely credited with giving American soldiers the advantage and securing victory for the allies.

During the Korean War, nearly one million of these rifles were brought to South Korea and left with the South Korean government afterward.

Now, South Korea wants to give American gun collectors the chance to get their hands on this unique piece of history.

A piece of American history that Barack Obama would like to see go down the memory hole.

That’s why I want as many Americans as possible to put themselves on record opposing this gun ban by signing the Official Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Will you please join me?

After World War II, the United States government sent millions of these rifles overseas to our allies and friends.

Over the past 50 years, many of the countries we lent them to returned them to America to be bought and sold by firearms collectors.

This is nothing new.

Make no mistake; these rifles were made in America, by Americans, for Americans, to defend freedom on foreign shores.

As a part of our history, they are greatly sought after by American shooters and collectors.

But according to Hillary Clinton’s State Department there is a danger they might “fall into the wrong hands.”

That they might, possibly, one day be used in a crime.

No mention of the hundreds of thousands of gun owners deprived of the opportunity to own an integral part of American history.

The State Department’s outrageous claims are nothing more than a thinly veiled ploy to distract from the real issue:

President Obama’s deep seated hatred for gun rights.

While his gun-grabbing base is giddy with praise at this back-door gun ban, law-abiding citizens across the United States are crying foul.

Let me be clear: at no time in U.S. history has the ownership of this firearm — or any part of this firearm — been illegal, restricted or banned.

Americans have collected World War II M1 Garand and Carbine rifles for decades.

Now they are sold through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

You can even purchase a newly manufactured model from Springfield Armory that was made just a month or two ago.

And the M1 Garand’s caliber or capacity is no more dangerous than the millions of modern firearms owned by Americans across the country today.

As you can see, there is absolutely no justification for this unconstitutional gun ban.

This is just the latest in a series of anti-gun schemes from the Obama Administration:

*** New BATFE regulations on semi-automatic rifles, requiring firearms dealers to act as an informant to anti-gun federal bureacrats if someone buys more than one rifle;

*** The Disarming American Citizens Act (H.R. 2159 in the last Congress) letting Attorney General Eric Holder revoke the Second Amendment rights of ANY American he chooses based on pure suspicion;

*** Notorious anti-gunners appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court and other senior administration positions;
That’s why it is essential that Americans like you and I take a stand against the M1 Garand gun ban!

It has been common practice since the end of World War II to re-import these American made rifles from the foreign allies they were lent to during the war.

But the Obama Administration departs radically from the American tradition.

In fact, on top of banning American citizens from owning these historic firearms, Obama’s State Department is arranging for the destruction of nearly one million of them — ironically, at a time of ballooning federal deficits.

It’s an outrage!

These firearms — truly pieces of American history — rightly belong in the hands of U.S. citizens.

That’s why I was glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is helping fight this power grab in the U.S. Senate.

Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

Do you believe that President Obama banning the re-importation of these historic firearms is an unprecedented and unconstitutional power grab?

Do you support Congress forcing President Obama to reverse his ban and save these American made rifles from destruction?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Rifle Ban.

And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.

With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch the designed to force President Obama to reverse this ban.

Direct mail. Phones. E-mail. Blogs. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits. The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy.

So please put yourself on record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Rifle Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Freedom Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, your help will still make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator
