Ron Paul Issues Statement on ATF Gun Scandal

http://eon.businesswire.com/news/eon/20110620006801/en

LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Today, 2012 GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul commented on the recent revelations about the federal government’s botched program to track gun sales. See statement below.

“The ATF has a long history of abusing our Second Amendment rights, so I was glad to see Congressman Issa demanding answers on the Project “Gunwalker”.

“My hope is that the recent hearing will further expose the ATF's and Attorney General Eric Holder's assaults on law-abiding gun owners, and more people will start questioning the need for unconstitutional agencies like the ATF that exist solely to infringe on American citizens' God-given right to keep and bear arms.”

"God-given" right? I am feeling there is a

new, tin-ear staffer with a narrow agenda issuing press releases. Dr. Paul is usually clear on rights being inherent in human nature without bringing a particular religious connotations into the equation. This is jarring as was the front page "enonomic statement" below.

This needs to be curbed. We all know and love Dr. Paul and he's a great example of loving Christianity. But the staff needs to stop inserting it into every issue as if the voting majority were driven primarily by religion. If they were, they'd never have elected secularist, nominally "Christian" Bush and Obama.

There is no advantage to pushiness for religious dominance in public affairs

Abolish the ATF

and repeal all gun control laws.

This is a huge story that the

This is a huge story that the msm has turned a blind eye to.
The DOJ stonewalled Issa's investigation, after 7 unanswered subpoenas.
It all appears to be nothing but an operation to get assault weapons
Into the hands of the drug cartels.
The stated purpose was to track the weapons, but when your point man in Mexico
is left in the dark, that seems less plausible.
Not sure the motive, could be to push more weapons
bans or restrictions here at home or it could be simply for profit.
Don't know. But the "operation" violates all sorts of laws even if you take
them at their word.
Fall guy so far is ATF head, Holder may be connected. Hope the investigative committee gets to the bottom of it.

Then why is this so short,

Then why is this so short, and does not go into the story at all? Just how many Americans got really any knowledge of what he is even talking about? Something is starting to really bother me about these "statements".

AFT brownshirts

The role of the ATF is to provide an army to get rid of any resistance to the tyranny coming and to take out rebels to that tyranny, as seen in history of dictatorships.
Every home in country needs a booklet of explanation of all these aspects of Liberty to edcuate on what is happening. Many people are turned off to all news and politics as it has been the same tune for decades. This is the FIRST time there was ever the fresh air of liberty of this kind; because the tyranny is even stronger than that of Englands in the 1700 s that created the first Revolution.
Peaceful revolution is stronger, as Ghandi showed, but to be unarmed is something the enemy wants so we cannot protect ourselves.e

The failure to educate each generation in liberty allows it to be stolen. To educate is to secure it.

well said

The controlled MSM does not want to cover this story.

Gun Stores Too

Print this out along with key votes that support 2nd Amendment rights and bring them to your local gun stores. Gun store operators will appreciate this information as gun freedom is their lifeblood. Targeted marketing, folks.
