Gunrunner: Barack Obama threatens to veto DOJ funding bill because it blocks a gun control law

May 10, 2012

  One might think that after Operation Fast and Furious was terminated after it culminated in the deaths of Brian Terry, Jamie Zapata, and hundreds of Mexicans that the Obama regime would have dropped its plans to use the operation as a conduit to implement gun control legislation and the UN small arms treaty, but that isn’t the case at all.

  While the chance of gaining support with the American people for gun control laws because of the violence at the Mexican border died on the same night as Brian Terry that doesn’t mean that the regime hasn’t been busy implementing new stealth gun control rules. The Obama regime has been unable to pass legislation, and in fact even gave up on even trying to use the Congress toward this end, but the ATF has been busy implementing new gun rules without the consent of the Congress. Many people wonder is DUI a felony, but it all depends upon the circumstances.

    Even in the wake of the deadly scandal the ATF began implementing a new rule which would require gun shops at the Mexican border to begin reporting to the ATF multiple sales of semi-automatic weapons. Some of the gun shops affected by this new rule are the very same gun shops which the federal government ordered to sell multiple semi-automatic weapons to known criminals in the first place or face the possibility that the ATF would pull their license to operate.

  The House recently passed the 2013 Department of Injustice budget, and in this budget they included a provision which would stop the ATF from implementing this new rule and the president promptly promised to veto the funding bill because of this provision.

  When Operation Fast and Furious failed to deliver the Obama regime’s wish of implementing wide ranging gun control measures the Obama regime did what they considered to be the next best thing–they began to implement smaller rules on a quieter level in the hopes they could slip these rules in unbeknownst to the American people or the Congress, but they were caught and the House has called their bluff.

  It will be interesting to see if the House Republicans hold firm to this decision and force Barack Obama to veto funding to the Department of Injustice, which would prove his anti-gun ideology trumps all else, or will the Republicans simply back down because they fear political fallout heading into the election in November.

    Of course the Republicans should hold firm, This DOJ doen’t deserve to be funded. We can wait until Romney is in office.

    After the daily posturing and barbs these people (our duly elected officials) throw at each other they go off to the same bar and laugh about how they fooled the idiot voters! This is just another trick of the Republicans to get us to vote for the in November. There aren’t many good people left in Washington and our system has been usurped by the money and long term employment benefits of holding office. It’s time to REVOLT! Everyone grab a rifle and let’s have a real 1Million man march. There wouldn’t be a thing they could do to stop it.

      Sadly I think you are right, in the end the people of both parties only care about one thing and that is getting reelected.

    All I want is one MSM pundit to ask why. Issa can fill in the details.
