***his valuable time and talent on meetings with NRA, Walmart,****

I live in Walmart country. Last night the local news had a segment on Walmart and gun sales, but the video they showed was NOT a Walmart store.
They showed a rack of guns, and a section labeled CLASS III. Walmart does not carry Class III fiirearms.

If the gun ban plans of Obama are just a diversion, what other power grabs is he doing that we don’t know about?

The NRA HAS to keep some Dems on a list, or else gun issue would become so partisan that we would lose big time, every time the dems are in power. That is the biggest reason no gun crap came up when the dems had control over both chambers. NRA doesn’t win them all, and they make decisions that we disagree with, but if it weren’t for them, either we would have already have to have had to fight a revolution, or lost the 2nd.
There are other pro 2a organizations out there, and while they claim to take a harder stand than the NRA, their clout doesn’t even come close.
IMHO, best is to belong to all of them during these times.

OK,
Tell that to the Dixie Chicks
Fact is conservatives just fail to use the tactic in their every day lives.

Listen to this part again. They are washing the industry as a bunch of illegals. Somebody needs to get the Obama gun-running op to Mehico back on the front page. I absolutely loathe this son of a bitch.


seized on by some opponents as evidence that the president wanted to unilaterally restrict gun sales to legal buyers.

My mom bought my first gun from K-Mart in 1978. I’ll bet that record doesn’t exist, nor should it.

I'd bet that the record still exists, probably in an ATF database. When the K-Mart closed (most of them did), they were obligated to turn over their records to the ATF. If your gun were found at a crime scene, they would most likely be able to tie it to your mother, probably within a few minutes. Even though the purchase happened over 30 years ago.

That is why many people prefer face to face private purchases, and is the primary reason that 0-bamster wants to outlaw the practice. If they can track guns, they know upon whose door to knock when they want to pick it up. This really is de-facto registration.
