Targeting the Gun Industry

Glenn Reynolds notes this post on where the author speculates that the Obama Justice Department might be targeting the gun industry. I can't say that would be very much of a surprise.

President Obama lied about the number of American weapons flowing into Mexico, but the facts undermined his case before he could use his doctored numbers to push for gun laws. He appointed a "wise latina" who believes cities and states can overrule the Second Amendment to the Supreme Court. And long before he had name recognition outside of Illinois, Obama was a director of the anti-gun Joyce Foundation as the funneled millions to anti-gun groups and attempted to subvert academic scholarship in hope of destroying the Second Amendment.

Time and again, Barack Obama has proven to be a radical ideologue with no problem using unethical means to further his agenda. That he would use his political power to aim his Justice Department at executives in the firearms industry and attempt to decapitate it from the top-down should hardly be surprising.

Already mortally wounded, the Democrats slit their own throats.

Keep it up Barry! You're doing a great job. There's prob'ly 10% of the U.S. population that you haven't pissed off yet!! It may not be long before his own party starts calling for his resignation.

According to the DOJ release, very few of the people who were arrested were involved with 'guns.'

Most were (apparently) into body-armor, accessories, and/or larger small-arms (like grenade launchers, machine guns, etc.)
