Obama has expanded civil-forfeiture rules making it permissible for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize weapons from citizens without the hassle of due process.

Why You Should Be Furious About Fast & Furious

From the NRA (America’s 1st Freedom), by Mark Chesnut, January 2012 – “Fast and Furious”—the very phrase brings varying emotions: anger, outrage, confusion, even apathy.

The anger and outrage are understandable considering the federal government, while calling for a renewed ban on so-called “assault weapons,” knowingly and intentionally placed hundreds of guns into the hands of murderous Mexican drug cartels, resulting in the death of at least one federal agent and many other people.

Epic Fail: Operation Fast and Furious

From Heritage Foundation, by Tierra Warren, August 24, 2011 – Operation Fast and Furious was an attempt by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agency to sell and trace thousands of firearms to “straw buyers” in Mexico. The idea was that these weapons would show up at crime scenes in Mexico thus enabling law enforcement on both sides of the border to link drug cartels to specific criminal acts.
However, many of the guns were lost in the process and are showing up in crime scenes across the U.S. and Mexico. One is even linked to the murder of a Border Patrol agent. Continue reading →

Obama Nominates Rabid Anti-gunner to Head the ATF

It was not a good sign that Barack Obama kept his nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives a secret until after the midterm election –- and then quickly announced that anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver would be named to fill the slot.

After being blasted before November 2’s election by the liberal New York Times for failing to beef up the ATF by appointing a director –- for fear of the wrath of the “gun lobby” -– Obama gets right past the election and, presto chango, a nominee appears. How ’bout that?

And not just any nominee. Continue reading →
