    Pelosi: 'We Want Registration'; Holder: 2A Won't 'Stand in the Way'; SAF: 'Gloves Are Off'

    BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on April 7 acknowledged that gun registration is on her agenda, days after Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters in Mexico that the Second Amendment would not “stand in the way” of administration plans to crack down on alleged gun trafficking to Mexico.

    “These are alarming remarks from Speaker Pelosi and Attorney General Holder,” said Second Amendment Foundation founder Alan Gottlieb. “It appears that the Obama administration and Capitol Hill anti-gunners have dropped all pretences about their plans for gun owners’ rights, and it looks like the gloves are coming off.”

    Pelosi’s revelation came during an interview on ABC’s Good Morning, America. While insisting that Congress “never denied” the gun rights of American Citizens, Pelosi told Roberts, “We want them registered. We don’t want them crossing state lines…” Gottlieb noted that citizens’ rights do not stop at state lines.

    “But that doesn’t really matter,” he observed. “History has shown that around the world, registration has always led to confiscation.”

    In Mexico, according to the Wall Street Journal, Holder was asked if the administration might encounter constitutional issues as it tries to crack down on alleged gun trafficking. His response: “I don’t think our Second Amendment will stand in the way of efforts we have begun and will expand upon.”

    “These comments belie administration promises and Democrat rhetoric that party leaders respect the rights of law-abiding Americans to own the firearm of their choice,” Gottlieb said. “They imposed registration of semi-autos in Pelosi’s California and it led to a ban, but it certainly didn’t disarm criminals, like the convicted felon who killed four Oakland police officers last month. We know from Holder that the Obama administration wants to renew the nationwide ban on such firearms, but that won’t prevent crime, either.

    “The administration and Congressional anti-gunners have declared war on gun rights,” Gottlieb said. “The press seems deliberately blind to the statements from Pelosi and Holder, who blame our gun rights for their incompetence in dealing with crime. More than 90 million gun owners haven’t hurt anybody, and they are tired of being treated like criminals.”

    The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 600,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

    Emailed Senators, Representative, President, Pelosi and Holder.

    Go here: NRA-ILA :: Action Center Enter your zipcode and click go. Next click on "with one click". This allows you to write your president, senators and rep all at once. I had to hunt seperately for Pelosi and Holder.

    Folks, take a few moments and make your voices heard.

    Honestly, can we just split the country in two, so I can live in a sane place free from people like Pelosi, Obama, and Holder.

    Thanks for the link

    In the second amendment, "the militia", and "the people" are used in separate phrases. The right to keep and bear arms has been fought for and utilized by the last three generations of my family. My grandfather raised me with guns, and none of my, my fathers, or my grandfathers guns, even his service weapon, have harmed a single soul. Placing me, the citizen with a firearm in the same league as those thugs that murder and commit atrocities is just and blind and ignorant as the people who murder without conscience whose weapons you want to take. Banning weapons will only tell those that don't obey the rules we are ready to be raped and robbed. Nothing more. Please consider how far you want to pervert he constitution for your own ends. The Bill of Rights was put in place to give the government a fence within which to operate. Tearing down the fence is akin to tearing down the country in which these laws are enforced.
