Skip to comments.Obama threatens to veto HR 5326 (bill to protect gun owners from Obama gun control)

It comes as no surprise that the Obama Administration out out s Statement of Administration Policy saying that President Obama's senior advisors would recommend he veto HR 5326.(Among other things, the bill will prohibit Obama from his desire to back-door reclassify and then ban the sale and possession of C&R firearms).
Apparently, one of the reasons the President would veto HR 5326 is because of an NRA-backed provision preventing funding for the new and unauthorized multiple reporting and registration plan proposed by BATFE. On April 26, the House Committee on Appropriations approved this general provision offered by Cong. Rehberg (R-MT) by a voice vote of 30-19.
Without this funding restriction, the BATFE could continue to circumvent the will of Congress by collecting information on multiple sales of long guns by Executive Mandate and then centralizing records of thousands of of Americans' gun purchases without any legal authority to do so.
Please contact your member of Congress and tel them to leave this important provision in the bill.
Do it, *CENSORED*.
This is just election year BS plain and simple. The republicans have no intention of having this pass, if they did they would have attached it to something that Obama really wants like some appropriations bill for ACORN funding. Instead they do the standard election year grand standing where they put together a bill they know will be vetoed just to be able to say to all those NRA types, “see we really do support you, elect us again and we’ll make sure it passes next time, honest”. Come next year when they are safely re-elected they forget all about this until the next election cycle. Then it’s a repeat, I’m amazed people buy this year after year but they do.
The Republicans don’t expect a bill funding the government to pass? What am I missing here?
You're not missing a thing, friend. The Republicrats are.
Won’t happen unless he gets resurrected for 4 more years........
And that won’t happen if we the people stop him in his tracks in November!!!
