Libs/Big government, hard at work ... scheming to steal your freedom


Here's how gun control works.  Remember, when you were a kid and watched the cartoons ... how the rifle exploded in the bad guy's face when the good guy stuck his finger in the barrel?  Yes.  That's how it works.

Meanwhile, remember when the "gun control" people used to pretend they only wanted to control pistols ... with the justification they were "easy to conceal" and, therefore, used in crimes much more than long guns?  Yes, that's what they used to "pretend." (You see, the libs always have to have some "justification" for stealing your freedom.  It might be a catch phrase like "assault rifle" or "a new study says ..." or "in the name of safety" etc etc) 

Then they found out they could go after some long guns with the justification of "assault rifle."  Yes, they always need a "justification" ... so their real agenda is hidden ... i.e. "controlling you and making sure you can't fight back."  Which is funny because our founding fathers knew there would ALWAYS be people who thought this way ... and to protect us against them they put this right in the constitution so we could protect ourselves from these jackasses self-proclaimed geniuses.

Anyway, here is your government, plotting against you.  Spending a kazillion crisp to generate a scandal about long guns specifically so they could then write regulations ("Demand letters") to control them ... WITHOUT congressional approval ... i.e. YOUR approval.  Hey, did I mention that a couple of people were MURDERED because of this idiocy? 

It just gets more and more "in your face ... whatcha gonna do about it, Joe six-pack?"

Bold is mine:

In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the "big fish." But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called "gunwalking," and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

ATF officials didn't intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called "Demand Letter 3". That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or "long guns." Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.

On July 14, 2010 after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF's Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious:

"Bill - can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks."

On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as "(A)nother time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue." And a day after the press conference, Chait emailed Newell: "Bill--well done yesterday... (I)n light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case."

This revelation angers gun rights advocates. Larry Keane, a spokesman for National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun industry trade group, calls the discussion of Fast and Furious to argue for Demand Letter 3 "disappointing and ironic." Keane says it's "deeply troubling" if sales made by gun dealers "voluntarily cooperating with ATF's flawed 'Operation Fast & Furious' were going to be used by some individuals within ATF to justify imposing a multiple sales reporting requirement for rifles."
