Now that Barack Obama has
pissed-off energized the Republicans’ socially conservative base, the President is looking to rally gun owners against his campaign for reelection. At this point, the average American doesn’t know about the emergency > temporary > experimental > automatically renewing long gun registry inflicted on some 8500 border-dwelling gun stores by the jack-booted thugs at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires). The Commander-in-Chiefs threat to veto the Department of Justice’s budget—unless legislators remove the bit that defunds the illegal registry (created by Executive Order)—should shove that bad boy straight into the limelight. And bring renewed focus on the DOJ’s Fast and Furious gun running op, which some gun rights advocates see as an ATF-designed stepping stone to the long gun registry and, thus, “under the radar” gun control. Watch this space.
