    and email your senators to block Holder from taking Attorney Generals Office for Obama. Holder does not believe that ANYONE should be able to own a gun except for police. Here is the deal. He has more skeletons in his closet than Tom Cruise<--jk. But really, he has so many controversial dealings, progunners think they can make a difference in letting all of this out and letting everyone know how the guy really is, they might be able to make a difference. This is the worst guy Obama could have picked for AG. All of those that take up for Obama, should really start thinking about things and quit saying "he has too much to keep him busy". thanks and please do not delete this post....

    For your convenience I reworked the link:

    Yep, we've work to do
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    As long as the comments are confined to 2A/RKBA issues, the thread will remain open.

    If it strays into a political discussion, it will be closed.

    Ok, who was written to the Judiciary committee? I just went through the whole list (except those whose webmail pages are down) and let them know that I oppose Eric Holder. Phone calls will follow later today.

    Here is a link with all the members and ways to contact them. Please do it now.

    A Keyboard and a .45: Contacting the Senate Judiciary Committee on Eric Holder, I'm Making it Easy For You

    April 23, 2000

    Napolitano: When is the last time a boy, a child, was taken at the point of a gun without an order of a judge. Unprecedented in American history."

    Holder: "He was not taken at the point of a gun."

    Napolitano: "We have a photograph showing he was taken at the point of a gun."

    Holder: "They were armed agents who went in there who acted very sensitively..."

    Does anyone remember that the DOJ, under John Ashcroft, issued a ruling in 2001 stating that the 2A guaranteed an individual right to keep and bear arms?

    Now the question should be, can any subsequent Attorney General like Eric Holder unilaterally rescind that ruling? Does he have that authority?

    Yes he can. It was a DOJ memo that can be overridden by a new one stating that the 2A will not be treated as an individual right

    Wrote to my legislators the other day on Holder and wrote them today on HR45. That little setup the NRA has where you can hit em all with one email makes it really easy to stay on it.

    Just do it....

    Well, barely can type. Just sent letter to my Senator and to all members of the Judiciary Committee opposing Holder. Those web forms suck, but better than nothing.

    I've written one of my Senators. Writing the other would be a waste of time, since it's Harry Reid!

    Well, that's unfortunate, to say the least.

    I don't think the memo stating the 2A will not be treated as a individual right would stand up in court at this time. The SCOTUS ruled in the Heller case that the 2nd amendment is a individual right. Once the make up of the SCOTUS changes that is another story.

    This is what I sent to all members:

    Dear Senator:

    Barack Obama's selection of Eric Holder for U.S. Attorney General is unacceptable to citizens concerned with the erosion of our Civil Rights.

    Just last year, Holder joined Janet Reno and 11 other former Justice Department officials in an amicus brief before the Supreme Court arguing in favor of the gun ban in Washington D.C.

    The Holder/Reno brief also took the position that the Second Amendment protects a collective government right, not an individual right.
    The SCOTUS recent "rediscovery" of our individual right to keep and bear arms must not be infringed.

    You took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and I expect you to honor that oath by voting NO to Holder nomination.

    Thank-you,
