John Podesta and his Center for American Progress have had way too much influence on government and politics. This man and his organization are about as left and radical as you can get. One item on the agenda is to find any way to grab guns from Americans. The 182-page report from Podesta’s organization wants to merge the FBI with the ATF to have more control over date collected from gun owners and more regulations. These people need to be shut down and we need to push back on their efforts to grab guns and nudge us all into their lefty world.
The highly influential Center for American Progress, which has deep ties to the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton, recently released an extensive report calling for the nation’s lead agency on gun regulation to be merged into the FBI.
The generalities of the center’s 182-page report were widely covered by media upon its release last May. However, the details in the report were largely unmentioned, including by conservative media agencies.
The center’s report explains how merging the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, into the FBI can result in more a proactive approach to gun regulation. That would include stepping up the collection of trace data on gun owners; more policing of sales at gun shows and the Internet; and enhanced gun regulation functions.
The report and other recent center recommendations may provide a window into the thinking of a future Clinton administration, with Clinton taking a strong anti-gun stance as part of her presidential campaign.
CAP was founded by John Podesta, who directed Obama’s transition into the White House in 2009 and served as White House counselor until earlier this year, when he took on the role of chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The ATF’s primary mission is supposed to be to police the illegal market of guns and to target the criminal use of weapons.
