Obama Nominates Anti-Gunner To Regulate Guns & Ammo: "Obama has nominated gun-grabber Andrew Traver as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives! Traver is currently special agent in charge of Chicago's BATFE field division, where he has a history of working with gun prohibitionists. He served as an advisor to the International Association for Chiefs of Police on that group's 2007 "Gun Violence Reduction Project," in cooperation with the anti-gun rights Joyce Foundation. Putting Andrew Traver in charge of an organization that decides whether we can buy, sell or transport guns is the first of many steps Obama and his anti-gun zealots are taking to crush our Second Amendment Rights."

Sharpie wants your gun: "Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton, often a vocal critic of the New York Police Department, is teaming up with the department to help get illegal guns off the streets as the city tries to stem an increase in shootings. Sharpton and police Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Friday announced they would host a summit on gun violence in December, and Sharpton pledged to support the NYPD's Gun Stop program, which offers a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone with illegal weapons. The department, the nation's largest, also gives $100 to anyone who turns in a gun at a police station _ no questions asked. City officials say gun violence remains a serious problem, even with tighter weapons laws [Odd, that!] , and shootings are up this year. So far there have been 1,590 victims of gun violence reported, about 60 more than through the same time last year. Kelly said most of the shooting victims are black men, as are most of the shooting suspects.
