A Plot to Undermine the Right to Bear Arms - Fast and Furious

I knew it!

Scandal: Newly obtained documents show that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives discussed using its covert operation Fast and Furious to argue for new rules about gun sales. We told you so.
As we observed in June, the way Fast and Furious — the government's gun-running operation that resulted in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — was conducted made no sense unless its intent was to facilitate violence with U.S. weapons in the interests of pursuing the administration's gun-control agenda.
Now documents obtained by CBS News confirm that our first suspicions were correct.
As CBS' Sharyl Attkisson reports, emails show ATF officials discussed using the deliberate transfer of weapons to Mexican drug cartels to justify a new gun regulation known as "Demand Letter 3."
We say deliberate because congressional testimony by ATF agents demonstrates how the tracking of Fast and Furious weapons stopped at the border and that requests to interdict the weapons transfers and arrest the gun traffickers were denied by higher-ups.
Demand Letter 3 was so named because it was the third ATF attempt to have Southwest gun shops report all long-gun (rifle or shotgun) sales to the ATF — even those to law-abiding American citizens with all the proper registration and other forms.

The Obama Administration bungled its efforts to rob of us of our Second Amendment Rights. And while some would say it is one of those things that Democratic Party Faithful simply do, it's a CONSPIRACY to deprive us of Constitutional protection that is due to us. Thus, it's most serious and should be grounds for prosecution and impeachment.

We all know that it all goes back to Obama himself, but proving it on paper might be more difficult than finding a stain on a blue dress and attributing it to a president.

And in the end it'll have a fair chance of working because those in favor of gun control will continue on their same path, making the same arguments and using whatever evidence they thought they could cook up with F&F just as they planned to use it all along.

Reality doesn't seem to hold much sway with these people. They just keep saying and doing the same things, seemingly assuming that if they hold the course eventually, with the backing of the media, unions and all the other usual suspects, their version of reality will in fact become reality. And why shouldn't they do this? It does seem to work. Just look around.

All they seek to do is to make minor changes in our perception of reality. Even F&F is proven a lie it's central message of guns bought in America and used in crimes will still be left lingering in the minds of many and will be used as another foundation stone supporting their grand house of lies.

The evil among us understand this and use it to their advantage. From Hitler's Mein Kampf:

"All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true within itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."

This is of no surprise. I knew this from the beginning. The day BO was elected gun sales went from 2.5 million a year to 14.5 million. The American people know that big government wants to get bigger under the Dems. That's why there is a Second Amendment and the libs fear it.

"newly obtained documents" which other than the Conservative reader will never hear of, let's face it.
The media's covering for Obama and we have to get used to it; we've had enough time to!

Let's see if Issa's hearings come to anything. I hope so.

You know the sad part? Just being found out won't change their plans to use it anyway. If not now, though don't be surprised, then later, after the rest is mainly forgotten.

We do need to vote these people out of power forever. Unfortunately too many Americans think "It sounds good", or that they really wouldn't do what they really are doing or trying to do.

Z, Yes, those intellectual progressives - quite happy to wallow in ignorant bliss eh?

Opus - Shocka, thanks for the info.

This administration is so incredibly evil. I hope the GOP keeps up the heat. I'm really proud of Issa and Grassley for refusing to be intimidated by the Obama's handpicked DOJ racist bully.
