Holder & The Assault Weapons Ban

As Jacob points out, the Obama Administration isn’t retreating from the Assault Weapons issue entirely, but they pretty clearly aren’t in a hurry to pass it, or to take it on right now. As long as Obama has other issues he wants to get through Congress, he’s probably not going to fight with us. But just because that’s the case today, doesn’t mean it will be the case tomorrow.

    Aside from how difficult it would be politically, I also don’t think the administration views banning EBRs as important as the other things they’re trying to do.

    Guav,

    I respectfully disagree.

    Just be cause he isn’t pushing the agenda *overtly*, doesn’t mean it isn’t on his radar. The health care initiative and “cap and tax” both have enormous potential to allow regulation of firearms by other means, rather than taking an open frontal assault on our guns directly.

    Do not mistake public neglect of the issue for an abandonment of their position that EBR’s (and all firearms, ultimately) need to be removed from citizen’s hands.

    Remember that “everything” is ultimately a “health care issue”, and all combustion produces Carbon Dioxide…

    Pax,

    I just read that the CDC is once again getting funding to track gun deaths and injuries to include them as “health” issues. With the health care bill in place, how long before they declare guns a health hazard and deny us the RTKB for insurance reasons.

  4. My personal pessimistic prediction is that the time between November 2, 2010, and January 4, 2011, is going to be really shitty for freedom lovers.
