Gun Control Advocate Traver to Head ATF

Traver holding "Evil AK-47" rifle he would deny citizens
Inexperienced and politically connected, Traver has developed a reputation as a gun control advocate. Like President Barack Obama, Traver has been tied to the left-wing Joyce Foundation, which bankrolls various anti-gun organizations...Traver lent his voice to a deceptive NBC News article, purposefully blurring the lines between fully automatic military machine guns and civilian-legal semi-automatic rifles that fire one bullet when the trigger is pulled. Traver is also member of the anti-gun International Association of Chiefs of Police...
The anti-gun Brady Center is strongly behind the nomination, stating: “If Mr. Traver is confirmed, we are hopeful that he will be a strong voice for the strengthening and effective enforcement of our gun laws.”
The National Rifle Association and other Second Amendment groups are predictably opposed to the Traver nomination, with the NRA going so far as to warn President Obama to withdraw the nomination.
But the most damning charges against Traver don’t come from outside groups, but from ATF watchdog message boards...Traver has been heavily criticized by ATF agents most familiar with his work. They cite his inexperience and, most damningly, his alleged lack of professionalism...With Traver at the helm, the beleaguered agency’s reputation can only get worse.

One of the reasons this blog was started in the first place was for when Obama, with his known anti-gun agenda, took power and as a watchdog for when he made his tyrannical move against lawful gun-owners. This aggression, and his intent to turn them into criminals through legislation, as well as making their lives full of misery and harassment, has arrived. The political backstabbing, arm-twisting, and intimidation begins. The daggers under the togas will soon taste blood. The losers will be the liberty loving supporters of the 2nd Amendment, if the forces of evil and their demonic puppets have their way. Freedom Fighters: Prepare for political battle!...(S9)

Army cadets banned from carrying rifles on Remembrance Day Parade because it "glamorises" weapons

Army cadets have been left ‘bitterly disappointed’ after being banned from carrying rifles on a Remembrance Day parade - amid fears the weapons might 'upset' onlookers.
The young cadets have proudly marched with rifles for decades and around 100 had spent months fine-tuning the drill where they would showcase their skills.  
But the cadets were left 'gutted' just days before the big event when military top brass cut the rifles from the display following complaints from members of the public...
the commanding officer for Plymouth cadets told them they couldn't do it any more because some member of the public complained about cadets marching with rifles.
'They have been doing it forever. My children have been doing rifle drill displays for the past four years and I did it when I was a cadet.'...
But Devon Cadet Executive Officer Major David Waterworth put an end to the tradition after he ruled that carrying weapons was 'not good for the image' of cadets...
He said: 'There is no need for children to appear in public with weapons. It does upset some members of the public...

The Old & Bold of the WW2 generation are going to heaven, while the country they fought to save is going to hell!. The very tools that saved the country are banned, and now even the unloaded symbols of those tools are being banned from merely being seen in public, due to weak kneed panty waists of all ages and sexes and their whining "complaints". God please save England/UK  from it's own suicidal stupidity!...Sir Winston Churchill is spinning in his grave....(S9)
