President Obama has been asked to stop the importation of what 82 House Democrats believe to be “military-style firearms” such as the AK-47. They want to stop gun crime in Mexico. Maybe they would be more successful at stopping gun violence in Mexico if they fired Holder and revamped the ATF.
The ban “would require no congressional action as the President has very broad authority under the 1968 Gun Control Act to prohibit the importation of firearms and ammunition unless they are generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.”
Led my Eliot L. Engel (D-NY) and John Conyers Jr. (D-MI),they sent a letter to President Obama “urging him to renew enforcement of the ban on imported military-style firearms that was previously enforced during the H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations.”
For starters, these gun-grabbing hacks would like to limit firearms ownership to one single shot .22 caliber derringer per household, which must be kept physically disasspembled in a lock box, with only one round of ammunition allowed per firearm, to be stored in a separate lockbox.
Later on, of course, they just want to ban all firearms in private hands.
