The above is not John Snyder’s appearance on Fox News this evening. [Click here for that.] It’s the same warning—of an alleged Obama plan to ban “certain” semi-automatic firearms through ATF regulations—Snyder published on his YouTube channel back on November 19. Although a stopped clock is right twice a day, and the Prez did sign a FOPA-defying Executive Order creating a long gun registry for border states in term I, I’m not buying John’s “confidential information.” Nor am I particularly happy about the inadvertent ammo he gives the left by using the expression “their boy in the White House” . . .
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: President Obama is nuts but he’s not crazy. Any move to create an assault weapons ban through ATF regulation would blow his and his fellow Dems’ political capital on a monumental scale. And, as Synder suggests, sound the death knell for the ATF; an agency that’s made itself no friends over the years (e.g., Waco, Fast and Furious).
Snyder (bio here) was only sort of right about the U.N. Arms treaty. I think he’s only sort of right now. But he certainly garnered more than his 1000 YouTube hits on Fox; emails are pinging TTAG like a reverse 911 call in an apartment building. Maybe the NRA should hire Snyder as a fundraiser. Just sayin’ . . .
