Attorney General Bill Barr will announce a new Department of Justice initiative tomorrow called Project Guardian. Project Guardian, which will be implemented through ATF and overseen by DOJ, will focus on preventing "gun violence" in cities across the country.
Barr will make the announcement and detail the project Wednesday from downtown Memphis. He will be joined by ATF Acting Director Regina Lombardo, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee D. Michael Dunavant and ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Nashville Field Division Marcus Watson.
In the meantime, President Trump's DOJ has been setting records for prosecutions against felony possession of firearms, against criminals carrying out crimes with firearms, illegal firearms sales and more.
In other words, instead of demanding additional gun control, DOJ is enforcing laws already on the books.
Are we to cheer the enforcement of tens of thousands of tyranical, unconstitutional federal dictates?
Are we cheering NFA34 and GCA68? Is our faith in "Prohibited Person" prosecutions? Is that what RKBA is all about?
This seems a far cry from the promise to repeal Gun Free Zones, an unconstitutional restriction. Now we're going to hyper enforce these things?
Soothe yourself by saying that it's not a Democrat getting new unenforcable and unenforced dictates passed.
How great will this play in 2020? Trump: Yeah, we're actually going to enforce the tripe we should never have passed. (kisses his biceps) Dems: We need more laws that will not matter. (sticks finger up nose and opens mouth)
Couple that with the recently implemented Barr PreCrime initiative....wheeeeeee Tyrant2020
