Not surprised that Obama will go around Congress to enforce his own laws.
(Reuters) – The Obama administration will consider executive actions and specific proposals for legislation as part of its gun policy response to the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Wednesday.
Holder, who has been a vocal proponent of a new ban on certain semiautomatic rifles, told reporters that a range of options need to be considered in the coming weeks.
Except for those semiautomatic rifles he sold to the Mexican drug cartels (Fast & Furious). The Obama regime loves giving guns to Islamic rebels in Syria and Libya but want to take them away from US citizens.
Those options will have to include a “strong and robust” Bureau of Alcohol,Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the chronically under-funded agency that enforces federal gun laws, he said.
They made big bucks selling those guns to Mexican drug cartel members.
“It’s clear that we need to do more,” Holder said. He did not specifically call on Wednesday for a return of the assault weapon ban.
