Election Season 2014

And it has brought us to this trainwreck called ObamaCare and we have bankrupted our kids and grandkids!

We are now headed into the 2014 Election Season and common sense and conservatism are on the rise. Please stand-up and be counted!

Reading Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election is a great place to start!

The Founding Father's Real Reason for the Second Amendment

And remember the words of Thomas Jefferson "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." See Video of Suzanna Gratia-Hupp’s Congressional Testimony: What the Second Amendment is REALLY For, below (u-tube HERE).

Will Mexico’s Bloody Violence be used to further Regulate Guns in the United States?

Could Obama back~door regulations via the DOJ and DHS by using the bloody violence of the drug cartels in Mexico to further legislate arms controls here in the United States?  The Obama administration publicly admits it hates to waste a crisis.

From January 2010 through the end of June 2010 at least 5775 cartel related murders took place in Mexico.  The states these took place in in the greatest number of murders are Mexico’s northern states directly on theAmerican border.

In Obama’s Stimulus bill, authored by the Apollo Alliance, a group founded by progressive radical Joel Rogers and chaired by Carl Pope of the Sierra Club,  dubbed ‘The AmericanRecovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009‘ (Recovery Act) and in fiscal year (FY) 2009 appropriations, ATF received $21.9 million in funding to support and expand Project Gunrunner.  However a source inside the ATF claims the project is underfunded, but in 2008 it was given $32.5 million for operations.

The Department of Justice of the United States recognized that the fight against organized crime is failing because of bureaucratic rivalries and the fact they do not share information about the purchase of illegal firearms.

Arms that are Alleged to be from the United States

A study published by the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego, said of the 75 000 firearms confiscated by Mexican authorities in the past three years, 60 000 were from the United States. The most common weapons include assault rifles semi-automatic AK-47 and AR-15. [pdf]

According to a report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General, the strategy against organized crime has failed because Operation Gunrunner does not communicate to agenciesfighting crime and the agency has not had a permanent director  for over a year and a half and they did not share intelligence on arms trafficking with other U.S. security agencies, particularly with theDepartment of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).   The JusticeDepartment said the Bureau of Alcohol, Snuff, Firearms and Explosives (ATF, for its acronym in English) and the ICE does not work efficiently and are rarely carried out joint research.

In similar story I  found evidence that the Crisis is in fact being looked at as a reason to further inflict regulation and possible outright bans on the rights of Gun Owners and dealers in the United States.

The report may end up focusing attention on what critics, especially gun control groups, charge has been a major shortcoming of the Obama administration: the president’s failure to nominate a director for ATF, despite having been in office more than 18 months, apparently because ofconcerns that any candidate would rile the ever potent gun lobby.

But another source in the same story claims the NRA is having its way with the current legislation.

An ATF spokesman in Washington said the agency was not prepared to respond to the criticisms in the report, saying the document was only a “working draft.” One senior ATF official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that many of the problems identified in the report stem from a lack of funding from Congress and weak U.S. gun laws, including the absence of a specific statute making weapons trafficking a federal crime.

Rather than tightening U.S. gun laws, Congress is now considering a bill — the ATF “Reform and Modernization Act,” backed by the National Rifle Association — that would weaken ATF’s ability to regulate rogue firearms dealers who either look the other way or are complicit when straw buyers working for the cartels purchase weapons, the official said.

One thing remains certain, as Obama continues has pronounced squelching of liberties and rights Americans have always known,  he and GunBan Hillary will move towards a more restrictive form of regulation on firearms and their owners.
