IS THIS ADMINISTRATION USING OPERATION FAST & FURIOUS TO CURTAIL GUN SALES?

~ The Rebel ~ 2011/07/12 13:16:04
The Obama administration bolstered sales-reporting requirements Monday for gun dealers in the southern border states of Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.

The new rules require gun dealers to report an individual who makes multiple semi-automatic weapon purchases within a five-day period.


Issa, a California Republican, blasted the administration in an interview with The Daily Caller.


“This political maneuver seems designed to protect the careers of political appointees at the Justice Department and not public safety,” Issa said. “It’s disconcerting that Justice Department officials who may have known about or tried to cover-up gunwalking in Operation Fast and Furious are continuing attempts to distract attention from clear wrongdoing.”

    Fast and Furious, Iraq, Afghanistan, and many more false flag efforts designed to sweep everyone of us into a panicked state of flag waving rabidness and foolish blind obedience are on the immediate horizon.

    Why would anybody who wants to use military grade firearms buy weapons from US gun stores, the operations need to be upgraded, many parts need to be replaced including the barrel, bolt assembly etc., why do this and pay more to do more work when military grade fully automatic weapons can be purchased for much less on the world market. This is not about the transport of straw gun buyers efforts, this is about the abolishment of the Republic of the United States one liberty at a time.

    True! The average civilian grade AK or M-4 is not even close to the military grade units. I was reading in our local paper an article about gun running in the El Paso area and it costs an average of 1000.00 for a good quality civilian AK or AR-15 and that you average gun runner is not going through the cost of buying them from some Joe and then marching them across the border. It mentioned a Russian gun runner who also owns a air cargo company and he was transporting thousands of Russian made military grade AKs for $55 bucks a pop , aboard his own fleet of aircraft. Its obvious to even the most brain dead liberal that the ATF is targeting civilian's right to bear arms and not the
    big fish. They only go after them because the guns look like the military versions and know nothing about the inner workings. Even the pistol grip, freaks them out.

    But the Ak47's are nothing in comparison to the mortars and RPG's that are also being sold to the drug cartels, and they want to ban the pot metal barrel civilian grade suicide machines that melt after a few seconds of automatic fire, These ATF guys are as good as idiots get.

    Yes, it seems they are always coming up with an excuse to try to create more gun laws.
    The feds know as well as the rest of us, that the non ATF sponsored gunrunners will just go through these states and get them from other states. Wouldn't it save them time to just do this to all the states at once (I am pretty sure eventually they will expand it) So why are they just starting with the 4 states instead of making it nation wide to start with? (Not saying they should - just trying to figure out their logic). It makes me feel like they are picking on Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. Which bothers me as much as the feds messing with gun laws does.

    Absolutely, we have the most corrupt government this country has ever seen. I am in hopes if we can survive these criminals, we will enact laws to prevent this from happening again

    All part of Barry's socialist agenda.
    One of the things on his "to-do" list is to disarm the public as best he can.
    In this country that's not any easy thing to accomplish, it must be done slowly and subversively.
    This "rule" will be pushed as a national standard.

    The proliferation of "shall issue" directives across the country may be fortuitous timing because as governments at all levels trim their bloated staffs and spending, disaffected democrat voters, cut from the teat of their fellow citizens' wallets, may take to extracting "tax" revenues directly. It's always good to be prepared.

    It was the plan to undermine gun rights in the US by inventing a problem of US guns in another country.

    You are going to have to wait until Jan 2013 for that to happen. You knew Holder was dirty after he let the Panthers walk after receiving a directed verdict of guilty. He's up to his armpits in this Gunrunner affair. This corrupt AG is doing the bidding of the Oneness.

    They are trying to take the heat off the ATF and now blame the honest citizen for the guns in mexico...a bunch of crap....
    This new law doesnt stop anyone from getting more than one gun at a time...it just gets you reported to the ATF..
    Funny thing is ..you already fill out a questionaire asking citezenship, background and all kinds of personal info...including gun type and serial number.....so the paperwork is already there...telling them who is buying what......
    the ATF and government are just to LAZY to look at it....they want the dealers to do it for them....

    I'm certain they were going to point to it as an example (if they hadn't gotten caught being the ones giving the guns to Mexico).

    load up now boys and girls. 30k rounds is a good round number to keep handy, and more in another location in case you need to bail.
