And President Barack Cartman Obama makes his first real attack

on the 2nd Amendment:
"A potential legislative gun rights battle looms today in Washington, D.C.," says Washington senior rights activist John M. Snyder.

"When President Obama submits his budget blueprint this week, reports indicate the proposal may include language designed specifically to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment," says Snyder, named the senior rights activist in Washington by Shotgun News.

"This repeal is an objective long sought by gun-grabbing politicians, the anti-gun Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and other extremist groups," he added.

The Tiahrt Amendment, named for Rep. Todd Tiahrt of Kansas, is included in the annual appropriations for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of the U.S. Justice Department. It prohibits gun-grabbing mayors and other repressive officials from obtaining federal gun trace data intended for use only for law enforcement purposes and using the data instead in harassing and costly third-party civil lawsuits against the firearms industry
.

If you haven't yelled at your congresscritters as yet, do it now. Even if they're personally not supporters of the 2nd; having lots of people point out that this, especially on top of the rest of the crap that's happened lately, is a good way to get their fat ass thrown out of that office just might get their attention.

This fits right in with a post over at Alphecca today noting that Gillibrand (D-New Yawk) has now done a 180 on this issue, i.e. supported Tiahrt in Jun 08, now as a Senator supporting Tiahrt's repeal.  In just a few weeks Gillibrand has gone from NRA supporter to HellaryRodham-lite!   Why am I _not_ surprise?
