Kerlikowske Pick More Proof of Obama's Anti-Gun Agenda, Says CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Reports that Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske has been tapped to become the nation's next "drug czar" offer more proof of the anti-gun intentions of the Obama administration, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

Kerlikowske has lobbied for bans on sport-utility rifles that are owned by tens of thousands of law-abiding Washington residents, and millions of their fellow American citizens. He backed legislation to close the mythical "gun show loophole" with an unsubstantiated theory that private sales put guns in the hands of criminals.

"During his eight-year tenure as Seattle's police chief, Gil Kerlikowske has established himself as a devoted lobbyist for every restrictive gun law proposal," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "That's pretty hypocritical of a guy whose own gun was stolen out of his department car on a downtown Seattle street. He may pass an FBI background check for an appointment, but he flunked the responsible gun owner's test."

"While he's been Seattle's police chief," Gottlieb noted, "he's become a close ally of the anti-gun Washington CeaseFire, but he's never bothered to sit down with gun owners to discuss crime problems, gun safety or enforcement efforts that focus on felons rather than firearms.

Kerlikowske's reported appointment to a post with the Obama administration reinforces the concerns of American gun owners that the new president is not their friend. The new president has surrounded himself with people who have long anti-gun rights track records, including Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Rahm Emanuel. It's no surprise Gil Kerlikowske would jump at the opportunity to leave the Evergreen State. He still has yet to find his stolen pistol.

I'm often disappointed, but never surprised.

Bear in mind that Mr. Obama is an unabashed,
unapologetic liberal. Did anybody seriously think that he was going to tap the NRA Board of
Directors for his Cabinet or other adminstrative heads?

Just more proof that every single suspicion we had about Obama being vehemently anti-2nd Amendment is TRUE.

Kurly-kow-ski never met an anti-gun law that he didn't like.
