FBI does not support the right to bear arms

Excuse my French... But it pisses me off that the head of the FBI came out against the Supremes Court ruling on the right of an individual to bear arms.

The government won't close the borders, won't drill for oil, supports gun free zones so you can be picked off by a nut, supports social security and benefits for illegal immigrants, but god forbid if those same government officials can find the time to support the Constitution.

President Bush should call for FBI Director Robert Mueller's immediate resignation!

FBI chief: Gun ruling makes campuses less secure

Associated Press - July 1, 2008

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday criticized the U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling that Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting, saying it may harm efforts to deter violent crime.

Speaking at a convention of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators in Hartford, Mueller said the ruling "does throw a lot of things up in the air."

By a 5-4 vote last week, the nation's highest court struck down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns, the first major pronouncement on gun rights in history. It upheld the right for communities to license guns.

Mueller said communities will have to determine their own license programs. As a former Marine who served in Vietnam, he said "I tend to believe weapons harm people and more often than not they harm the people carrying them."

With his grandchildren going to college, Mueller said he hopes "those campuses will be weapons free."

Mueller said the FBI's top priority remains counterterrorism, counter-intelligence and protecting the secrets of the United States.

He said college campuses and small communities could be "potential incubators of terrorism" even while major cities such as New York and Los Angeles remain primary targets for terrorists.

"The fact is we can't rule out any community in the United States as a potential incubator of terrorism," Mueller said.
