Eric Holder has misplayed his hand and revealed BO’s inttentionns, all for naught, Mike Soraghan, Hill :
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tossed cold water on the prospect of reinstating the assault weapons ban, highlighting Democrats’ reluctance to take on gun issues.
Attorney General Eric Holder raised the prospect Wednesday that the administration would push to bring back the ban. But Pelosi (D-Calif.) indicated on Thursday that he never talked to her. The Speaker gave a flat “no” when asked if she had talked to administration officials about the ban.
Moe Lane, Red State , takes good steady aim and levels Holder:
Eric Holder was on today announcing that the Obama administration was going to bring back the “assault weapons” ban. As Purple Avenger of Ace of Spades notes, this is the same guy who called for making armor piercing bullets (“cop-killers”) illegal…
…while being apparently blissfully unaware of the fact that they already are.
Meanwhile Allah Pundit, Hot Air , offers a warning:
Clearly, Madam Speaker doesn’t think she has the votes.
Presumably they’ll revisit the issue after the midterms if they pick up a few more liberal seats in the House.
BO doesn’t like freedom. No populus can remain free while the state has guns but the citizens do not.
