Outrage: ATF to require semi-auto buyer information on border

The tool of freedom is again demonized
The new policy comes amid criticism of a flawed federal probe aimed at dismantling large-scale arms trafficking networks along the Arizona border with Mexico...Under the new policy, federal firearms licensees in Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico must report purchases of two or more of some types of rifles by the same person in a five-day span. The requirement applies to purchases of semi-automatic rifles that have detachable magazines and a caliber of greater than .22...One of the critics of Operation Fast and Furious called the new policy "the height of hypocrisy." The Obama administration is restricting the gun rights of border state citizens, "when the administration knowingly and intentionally allowed guns to be trafficked into Mexico," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas. "Limiting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens is not going to solve the problem," Smith said.  Mexico's federal security spokesman... praised Obama's action...
----Full watered-down story at AP/Mail----
Well, as predicted more direct action against law abiding gun owners, harassment of FFL's, and more demonization of semi-auto rifles....All this based on the propaganda operation using the Mexican drug wars as cover. That Mexico's spokesman approves is proof  enough the "policy" stinks of totalitarianism.  Despite the lies and scandal, the administrations anti-gun initiatives are being implemented...Rule by decree, the favorite method of kings & tyrants, seem to be in fashion within the former land of the free...(S9)
