    Your A.G. Holder has big plans for the renewal of the "assult weapons ban" apparently our semi auto rifles end up in Mexico as fully auto military grade weapons, with grenade launchers.

    One more reason for building a wall and controlling it like the DMZ. A breech of the wall should be considered a national security issue. But Holder thinks a gun ban will stop the drug problem.

    Just the very beginning in my opinion. If you are not an NRA member and a member of other organizations that will help protect our 2nd amendment rights. I would think about signing up. I feel that and letters to our congressmen and women on a regular basis is the least we can do. If we choose to do nothing, then the hunting and shooting world we know today will soon be gone.

    I will add, one may also consider what is going on today and in the next two years, when voting in the 2010 congressional elections.

    JMO.

    I bought a stripped lower last week, and will be ordering my upper in the next few days.

    If you read the article closely, I think they are going to attempt some sort of massive "reworking" of various gun control measures, such as "child proofing", tagging, taxing, "cop killer" bullets, etc.

    I swear this is going to be the longest 4 years of my life.

    If you want an upper or any AR parts, better order them NOW. I ordered another upper a couple weeks ago and the lead time was 16 weeks.

    We have a socialist for a president and a baby killing democrat . I say shame on anyone who voted for the liberal we have in office today . He supports late term abortion and he voted against the born alive act wich means if you don't already know. Any baby that made it through the abortion and was born alive obama said it would be a burdon to the mother if a doctor gave it medical assistance. The born alive act supports the baby's right to get medical attention . God will judge he still does not like murder and he's angry with the wicked sodomites .

    I'd love to know how reinstating the "ban" will slow the flow of arms to mexico? It's written like they just come up here buy them, check in at the border, and cross with arms like it's legal to do because the "ban" isn't currently in operation.

    I saw a video of Holder saying they weren't looking to do what the article says they are.

    I sent an email to my Congressman Jason Altmireā€ about this topic below is his reply and a link to the attachment.

    Dear Mr. Mason,

    Thank you for previously contacting me about gun control. I appreciate hearing from you.

    I wanted to take a moment to update you on my efforts to protect your Second Amendment rights. Recent remarks by Attorney General Eric Holder indicated that the administration would seek to reinstate the 1994 ban on assault weapons, which expired in 2004.

    These "assault weapons" are often not automatic weapons, but rather shoot one round per pull of the trigger. Many are passed down from generation to generation. These weapons are used for the same purposes as other legal firearms: competitive shooting, hunting and self-defense. I also do not see a correlation in crime rates, which began to fall prior to the ban and continued after it expired.

    For these reasons, I joined with sixty-four other members of Congress concerned about the Second Amendment rights of Americans and wrote a letter to Attorney General Holder, urging him to reconsider the plans to reinstate this ineffective and intrusive policy. I have attached the letter for your reference.

    It is an honor to represent you, and I will continue to fight for your rights in Congress. If I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other matter, please feel free to be in touch.



    Sincerely,

    Jason Altmire
    Member of Congress

    we think alike cowboy.....

    What i would like to see and would do if i were president is put Joe Arrapio(SP?) sherriff of Maricopa county AZ in charge of border security. Starting at San Diego i would build a fence just like the one the isreali's built around the west bank IE: 12ft high Double chain link 50yds apart with a minefield in between the fences, all the way across the border to the gulf of mexico. I would sentence any illegal caught crossing the border to 2yrs hard labor, doing guess what? You got it! building fence! right now all they get is a free bus ride home, hell some of them beat the bus back across the border.

    And to all of you out there who think that these illegals are only doing work lazy americans wont do, here's one for you. My son works on a gas drilling rig near parachute , co.....good wages (28$ plus) he is headed back to work a double shift because they fired 2 mexicans that were working for the past 2 yrs on fake SS numbers...he knew these guys. said they were great , hard workers. couldnt speak a lick of english.....80K a yr.....doing work lazy americans wouldnt? i bet you know someone who would like that job.....AJ
