I hate being right.

The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum." Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.

Novel excuse though, banning rifles in the USA reduces criminality in Mexico.  These guys really will say any damn thing, won't they? 

Well kids, it is ON.  The other shoe will be a national gun registry.  You may be sure the BATF is even now at work busily copying all those yellow sheets y'all filled out when you bought whatever.  Hidden away in the 100 pages of the Porkulus Maximus will be a couple hundred million to pay for that.  Count on it.

TODAY is the day to start burning up the phone lines, email and snail mail to your congresscritters.  Dig in my American friends, hold that ground.  Make them fear for their re-election, particularly those coming due in two years.  Say the name Al Gore to them.

Remember my friends, gun bans are not about controlling crime.  They are about controlling -you-.

Knowing the Canadian Gun laws, my guess is that Ms Wendy Cukier, mommy of the Canadian gun registry and stupid transport/storage laws, and associate of George Soros, has been busy south of the border. The HR bill looks like a carbon copy of the gun laws that have left Canadian civilians defenseless in the streets while armed criminals shoot at will. Toronto was a safe city until the gun laws took over in the nineties.
Probably some of the millions of new Obama employees will be entering retail sales slips into the registry.
Canadian legislation permits home inspections of storage facilities.
Good luck.

As it happens V65, Windy Wendy gets a lot of support/funding from American liberal foundations and such. She used to get a bunch from the federal government here at home, but her boys lost the election.

I used to live in Toronto. The change was slow, but by 1992 I was well and truly fed up and it was time to go. My odd return trip confirms I made the right decision.
