The latest issues of Freedom First and American Rifleman both have lengthy articles about the Obama administration's anti-gun efforts and quotes from Eric Holder (US Atty Gen) about using the current "crisis" on our southern border involving drugs and illegal guns and explosivesbeing used by illegal aliens smuggling illegal drugs across our border as a means to ban firearms in the U.S. They also have a quote by Rahm Emanuel saying, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I ean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
Wayne La Pierr makes a deliberate point of mentioning the Tiahrt amendment in the Freedom First article as well and he does it in a no-compromise manner.
I think you're right to call BS on this one. It sounds like the NRA is sticking to their guns (pardon the pun) about enforcing existing laws, not enacting new laws. The NRA is making a definite effort to let the public know that Obama's administration is anti-gun on multiple levels and is trying to use any little political "crisis" as a scapegoat to justify another gun ban.
