Buy More Guns (and Ammo...)

Eric Holder, our Dear Leader's Enforcer-in-Chief, is playing the O-and-Savior game very well, indeed. It's called the Big Non-Sequitur. (The "Big Lie" is so....20th Century...)

Obama tells us that the recession can be 'fixed' by taxing CO2, giving a college education to every US citizen, and drowning the country in long-term debt.

Of course, the recession was caused by the sudden deflation of the Real Estate Bubble--but facts don't matter.

So you get the same Non-Sequitur foofoodust from Holder.

"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to re-institute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder said. "I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum."

Holder said reinstating the ban would decrease the flow of guns from the U.S. into Mexico. He declined to offer a timeframe for any re-implementation; Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller also declined comment on Tuesday.

Pure, unadulteraded, bullshit.

...Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, told that Holder's "argument in general is bizarre."

"It's a delusion to say that diminishing the Second Amendment in America is somehow going to stop these ruthless drug cartels in Mexico."

Guys who can spend $500 million/year to acquire guns and ammo, mostly from 3rd-world sources and from corrupt military members in Mexico, are not in the least bit worried about a supply interruption from the US--particularly since the cartels' arms are largely unavailable in the US.
