… and there you have it.
Wasn’t there a bunch of people in these forums who swore that this wasn’t a concern of Obamas? That ‘the gun nuts’ were just over reacting? That people were crazy for even thinking that Obama cared about guns? That he wouldn’t try to further infringe our 2nd Amendment rights?
Has it even been 100 days yet?
Funny how when you’re really close to an issue you can just see these things coming from miles away…

Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban
The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.
“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.
“I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.” Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.
