Obama has "transformed ATF" according to one insider. Republican control of the House is a great hedge, but with Boxer re-elected, the agenda to reinstitute the "Clinton Bans" is stronger than ever. Right now, the steel in firearms and ammo is one of the best hedges against a dollar that will likely plunge in value between now and 2012.
A recent study by the National Policy Institute shows that over 60% of gun crimes involving strangers are committed by illegal aliens, and that over 80% of "examples" used by VPC and other anti-gun groups are taken from the crimes of illegal aliens. VPC has even admitted that illegals are one of the major driving forces in the "need to eliminate handguns in the U.S." Is this why there were virtually NO gun crimes when there were NO illegals in the U.S.?
Because of recent actions by Arizona and Oklahoma, and soon Texas, the illegal alien question is becoming a question of States rights. Democrats have vowed to change the Supreme Court to stop these States from passing immigration laws to protect their citizens' safety, jobs, and rights to carry and own guns.
The summary of Oklahoma's "4 sided" strategy below is backed up with links to sources-- please pass this along to as many friends as you can. With California "welcoming" aliens, there are major border clashes developing between liberal and conservative States, and when illegals begin to "concentrate" in friendly States as a result (like NY and CA), then get driver's licenses, they soon will have the voting power to swing elections, due to the large number of electoral ballots in those States!
OKLAHOMA COURAGE (ARIZONA is a close second)
Hooray for OKLAHOMA--Now, if we can only get the rest of them to get smart-Hope the Feds don't take this away. OKLAHOMA TAKES A STAND ON ILLEGALS
Well, it passed! Oklahoma is no longer OK for Illegal Aliens
It seems that at least one state has decided to take matters into it's own hands, since the Federal Government keeps dragging it's feet on this Illegal alien stuff and even reversing popular opinionon how to handle it. BRAVO OKLAHOMA! (Too bad all politicians don't have the 'guts' to do this) Every State needs to do this!!!!
Oklahoma's Governor Brad Henry has signed a sweeping immigration Reform bill: House Bill 1804, that its sponsor believes will go a longway in dealing with the illegal alien problem in the state. House Bill 1804 was passed by overwhelming majorities in both the House and Senate of the Oklahoma Legislature. The measure's sponsor, State Representative Randy Terrill, says the bill has four main topical areas: it deals with identity theft; it terminates public assistance benefits to illegal; it empowers state and localpolice to enforce federal immigration laws; and it punishes employers who knowingly hire illegal aliensOklahoma is no longer "O.K." for illegal aliens, Terrill observes. Arizona recently did the same thing, and there is a flood of illegals leaving AZ for TX and CA (along with the flood coming out of CA due to earthquakes and fires). "When you put everything together in context," he contends, "thebottom line is illegal aliens will not come here if there are no jobs waiting for them, they will not stay here if there is nogovernment sibsidy, and they certainly won't stay here if they know that if they ever encounter our state and local law enforcementofficers, they will be physically detained until they're deported. And that's exactly what House Bill 1804 does."
The Oklahoma legislator is pleased the bill he sponsored into lawwas signed by Governor Henry and believes it will go a long way to curb the illegal immigration problem in the state. "I would remindpeople that states are separate sovereigns in our federal system,"Terrill points out. "Anyone who doesn't understand that needs to goback and take an American federal government class in college," hesays As a result of that sovereignty , the Oklahoma lawmaker insists, "Wehave as much right - in fact, I would argue, a responsibility - toprotect our tax payers against that sort of egregious waste, fraudand abuse as the federal government should have a responsibility toprotect that n ternational border, but doesn't do that Terrill says as long as the federal government refuses to do its jobof protecting the international borders of the United States, stateslike Oklahoma must take action to deal with the problem that iscosting taxpayers in the state $200 billion a year in publicbenefits, law enforcement costs, and other resources

Breaking News on STORE, Home and Internet Gun Selling, with and without your FFL, due to OBAMA and the new liberal Dem Congress!
BREAKING NEWS FOR COLLECTORS: WITH RECENT BAN PROPOSALS TO LIMIT OR REGISTER YOUR COLLECTION, BOTH THE HOME FFL AND GUN COLLECTOR/GUNSMITH LICENSE ARE GREAT WAYS TO GRANDFATHER AND PROTECT YOUR COLLECTION! VISIT GUNCOLLECTORLICENSE.COM FOR ALL THE DETAILS TODAY!
We all know the Democrats are flying high and Mr. Obama only was waiting to secure the 2010 elections before acting decisively and quickly-- so far with over 49 executive orders and over 117 new ATF poicies, and Mr. Holder's obvious "border state" clamp downs in the name of Mexican gangs, none of which buy their guys at US gun stores!. In fact, ATF and States already are responding to the new policies on new gun ban initiatives. Just so far, VPC has gone after ammo in 12 states, California has enacted two new “no ship across State lines” laws, and ATF has instituted three brand new draconian web/home/kiosk hours FFL policies, with the only exception being gunsmiths.
New Internal ATF Policy on Hours and Facilities
Many of our employees are retired or part time ATF. There is a new internal policy (not to be published publicly) that hearkens back to the Clinton anti-web, anti-home rules. These rules tried to shut down stores with weekend hours, home dealers and collectors via State tax licenses and hours of operation. Most home FFLs and private sellers have already figured the tax angle out. However, any seller (including stores!) with “variable hours of operation” (meaning no hours for the public, hours by appointment, or weekend only hours) MUST include gunsmithing. If a seller does not have a gunsmith credential, they will be denied, shut down during their next audit, or refused renewal if they are not open during full regular retail hours.
You have made a wise choice in your timing, as other schools charge over $900 for this credential, and we still have hundreds of successful new applicants faxing in their new licenses each month. Unfortunately we also hear many stories of denials from applicants who did not order the info you will have, so please study it carefully before applying. We're also not sure how long the "home warehouse" loophole will last, but it will at least be grandfathered for those who apply this year. IF YOU OWN A GUN STORE and you do not have FULL RETAIL HOURS, you also NEED this credential to stay in business! --More Bans and BecomeaGunsmith.com Proudly Support the IABOK BoK Initiatives--
