You mean the same Eric Holder that helped Chiquita get away with massacring thousands of people?


www.cipcol.org...

"Holder helped Chiquita negotiate a plea agreement with the Justice Department for the years of payoffs that the company made to paramilitary groups in a part of Colombia where the right-wing militias massacred hundreds, perhaps thousands, of civilians."

This is just another problem-reaction-solution to take away our rights(priviledges actually) to own guns. The UN Millenium Declaration says it all.

• To take concerted action to end illicit traffic in small arms and light weapons, especially by making arms transfers more transparent and supporting regional disarmament measures, taking account of all the recommendations of the forthcoming United Nations Conference on Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons.

They are allowing a situation to get so bad that people will actually want their solution, which is what the have planned all along. Banning weapons in the U.S. will not stop the problem. All it will do is create a new market for guns from other countries like Israel or Russia. This proposed weapon ban is also just another way to usher in the North American Union.

Anybody with half a brain can see that this is just a small step towards banning personal ownership of weapons. Just like Mexico. How convenient.

Let's take a look at Chicago....

www.learnaboutguns.com...

"Individuals that lack a good education are much less likely to be able to get a decent job.  Such individuals are also much more likely to end up as criminals.  Rather than recognizing this, Chicago politicians blame guns (but keep guns for themselves).  Chicago is the “murder capitol” of the United States, despite a ban on handguns that has been around longer than I’ve been alive.  More gun restrictions won’t change that fact, and will instead only leave law abiding citizens defenseless.  Until Chicago politicians address the lack of education and other causes of crime, things just aren’t going to improve."

Now let's look at Alabama....

www.learnaboutguns.com...

"As WRCB reports, a new survey shows that approximately two thirds of Alabama residents own a gun, and about half of them have permits to carry concealed weapons. This is one of the highest gun ownership and concealed carry permit rates in the country, and corresponds with a relatively low crime rate – considerably lower than localities such as Chicago which have handgun bans."

The problem with banning guns, is that those who are comitting crimes will figure out a way to get ahold of the illegale firearms.


Unfortunately, the anti-gun lobby doesn't see it that way. I think they believe that all the criminals would just give up their weapons, too, since it was against the law to have them.

Just some more information on this issue. Not the best references that I know of but just the ones I could find.


A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
-U. S. Constitution, "Amendment II"



The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
-Thomas Jefferson


Freedom will die when the people let it die.
