And He Claims He "Supports" the 2nd Amendment

"...Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology. The Obama administration this past week diverted some $2 million from the pilot training program to hire more supervisory staff, who will engage in field inspections of pilots...Pilots cannot openly speak about the changing policies for fear of retaliation from the Transportation Security Administration. Pilots who act in any way that causes a “loss of confidence” in the armed pilot program risk criminal prosecution as well as their removal from the program." [link]

All this coming from the man who supposedly "supports the 2nd Amendment". We can see even more attacks against our freedoms if we only look. How about this: "...renewing and making permanent the ban on so-called “assault weapons...", or even this, "Department of Defense has decided to no longer sell empty, once-fired cartridge cases as surplus to companies that polish and reload those empties... If you can’t ban the gun, dry up the ammunition supply. That seems to be the popular theory about what is behind this change of policy. My colleague, David Codrea, also weighs in on this controversy here." [link] **

Yes, make no mistake about it, our rights are coming under attack, and not just our firearms rights but nearly every other right we hold sacred and cherish. Keep visiting here or go back and read some of my archived posts. Visit the links I have up, visit the blogs I read, you will see a picture forming that there is in fact an outright assault on our rights. Now is the time to start pushing back.

**You can rest a small bit, but now long. Word has just come in that the DOD has rescinded their orders to scrap once fired brass. Seems like quite a few freedom lovers and 2nd Amendment supporters got the word out and started rattling the right chains loud enough.
