As the “Fast and Furious” federal gun-running scandal continues to grow, top Republican lawmakers and concerned analysts are crying foul after Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) boss B. Todd Jones was caught making statements perceived as a threat against agents who blow the whistle. Trying to stop or retaliate against whistleblowers who expose unlawful actions, of course, violates federal law.
After disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder became the first sitting cabinet member in U.S. history to be officially held in contempt of Congress, gun-rights activists are now seeking to have Obama’s controversial top law-enforcement officer disbarred for his lawless behavior surrounding the “Fast and Furious” federal gun-running scandal – the scheme to put thousands of weapons in the hands of Mexican cartels that eventually led to Holder being held in contempt for making multiple false statements under oath and defying lawful subpoenas to obstruct a congressional investigation.
The United Nations is polishing up a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) this month in a New York convention that would create a global registry of private ownership of firearms. This treaty — which would also mandate creation of a national collection agency for those guns and is contrary to the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment — has the long-standing and enthusiastic backing of the Obama State Department, headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Two new developments in the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Florida cast even more doubt on the prosecutor’s second-degree murder charge against George Zimmerman, the Hispanic man accused of killing Martin because the 6-foot-three football player was black. The Orlando Sentinel disclosed FBI records that show that federal law enforcement officers learned that Zimmerman is not a racist and indeed is far from it.
Google has announced a ban on firearms, ammunition, and other items its censors deem to be unsafe from its new Google Shopping site, initiated in early June. While most major U.S. news organs appeared to have missed or ignored the announcement, which Google made in late May, foreign newspapers were all over it. “Our company has a strong culture and values, and we’ve chosen not to allow ads that promote products and services that are incompatible with these values,” the U.K.’s Telegraph news site quoted Google as explaining of its new “family safe” policy.
The UN Arms Trade Treaty being finalized this month would infringe on 2nd Amendment.
George Soros is financing the fight to give the United Nations control of your guns. Through his Media Matters organization, Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York July 2–27.
The Florida judge overseeing the controversial case of George Zimmerman, accused of second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, reluctantly ruled that the defendant could be released on a $1 million bond while awaiting trial — albeit with an array of new restrictions. As soon as the news broke Thursday, with Zimmerman still in jail trying to raise bail money, death threats against him resumed.
It should be just a matter of time before Holder is no longer our nation’s top law-enforcement officer. While the list of unconstitutional excesses by this Administration is longer than both of my arms, Holder’s bungling mismanagement of the Fast and Furious crisis, followed by his outright defiance of Congress, is reason enough to color him gone.
The remarkable coincidence of increased private ownership of guns as reflected by the explosive growth of firearms manufacturers, coupled with the increased interest in self-defense and relaxed state rules regarding carrying a weapon with or without a concealed weapons permit, along with the steady decline in violent crime as reported by the FBI, all seem to point to a supreme irony: The most anti-gun president in recent memory, who is trying to stimulate the economy by growing jobs, is in fact increasingly responsible for the growth of the gun industry itself.
