Posted on 08/12/2013 11:34:19 AM PDT by marktwain
Following in the well-worn footsteps of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns, this week the Council on Foreign Relations released a memo urging the Obama administration to disregard the will of the American people and Congress and unilaterally enact a series of gun controls. Entitled, A Strategy to Reduce Gun Trafficking and Violence in the Americas, and written by CFR Senior Fellow for Latin American Studies, Julia F. Sweig, the memo pins the ills of Central and South America on U.S. gun owners and urges the president to curb our rights to cure them.
Leading off CFRs wish list is a call to expand the current semi-auto rifle reporting scheme nationwide. Since 2010, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has required that all firearms dealers in the Southwest border states report to it the sale to one purchaser within a five-day period of two or more semiautomatic center-fire rifles of a caliber greater than .22. The result of this program is the registration of gun owners who choose to purchase more than one firearm at a time and significant additional paperwork burdens for dealers.
In the Gun Control Act of 1968, Congress specifically limited a reporting scheme of this type to the sale of handguns. However, BATFE enacted the current requirement by twisting a procedure originally intended by Congress to allow the agency to query dealer records for legitimate and limited criminal investigations; the demand letter. Attempts by NRA to bind BATFE to their congressionally authorized functions through litigation on this issue have been unsuccessful, and to further expand the program would even more egregiously divorce BATFEs abuse of the demand letter process from any notion of Congressional authority.

Gun control advocates are eating away at the second amendment incrementally. By going on offense we could reverse the process.
I don’t know whether CFR members care about making friends with the downscale rabble, but they do influence people. Fred Thompson was a chairman.
Any politician running for election tied to the CFR is an automatic NO for me

Tawk like that could get’cha a visit around 3am.
They’re still trying to pretend they didn’t get caught red-handed in Fast and Furious.
They do have great influence but no one who has a brain considers the CFR as friendly. They should all be imprisoned for activities undermining the United States of America!

“They should all be imprisoned...”
Starting with that gun-grabbing idiot Julia F. Swine.
Please count me in when you franchise your convenience store chain. Standing by, ready to invest in a great idea.
So now American gun owners are responsible for the “ills of South and Central America.” I’d get a belly laugh out of seeing how the lefties managed to connect THOSE dots.
More Free Trader Commie Globalist nonsense
The CFR is no friend to conservative Americans
The CFR is an Agenda 21 backer!!!
