More of der HopenChange, I guess…

…or as many of us would say, more of those failed “solutions”

“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” (Attorney General Eric) Holder told reporters.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

Not that this is any big surprise, but still it makes it all the more infuriating that the NRA rolled over on Eric Holder. It’ll be interesting to see what the NRA does here, and how the pragmatists try to justify THAT. I would think it’ll be easier to fight something like a renewed or strengthened AWB, but since none of the cowards and fools up on Capitol Hill want to talk about any other solutions, and since Eric Holder is just as big a fan of the War On (Some) Drugs as he is of the War On Guns, it’s probably a safer bet that said bill will be pushed as a solution to what’s going on south of the Rio Grande, and a measure we should take as a “good neighbor.” One could even call a renewed or strengthened AWB…the pragmatic thing to do…
And at the risk of repeating myself…what are we gonna do when the political solutions fail?
