Discussion Topic: Should Attorney General Gonzales Resign?

This must have something to do with some firings of federal prosecutors and a recent Senate hearing, right? Actually, no. From a Second Amendment Foundation press release:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ troubling support of legislation that would allow him and future attorneys general the arbitrary power to block firearms purchases without due process is cause for him to step down as the nation’s highest ranking law enforcement officer, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

The bill, S. 1237, was introduced last week at the Justice Department’s request by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), one of the most extreme anti-gunners in Congress. Called the “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2007,” this legislation would give the Attorney General discretionary authority to deny the purchase of a firearm or the issuance of a firearm license or permit because of some vague suspicion that an American citizen may be up to no good.

“This bill,” said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb, “raises serious concerns about how someone becomes a ‘suspected terrorist.’ Nobody has explained how one gets their name on such a list, and worse, nobody knows how to get one’s name off such a list.

So what do you think. Should Gonzales step down for this—or anything else?

Gonzales should never have been appointed in the first place as he is totally unqualified for the position, his only qualifications being that he is a Texan friend of Bush's, and yes, he should resign immediately.

Jason

Yes he should. I also believe that everyone else in the administration should be forced to sit down and read the constitution so that they have a vague idea of what rights they swore they would uphold for the american people.

Walt smith

NO he shouldn'. and at least the Bush White House has brought patroitism to the office instead of what the last democratic office brought,adultry,incompitance,and a brain fart that sent most of the middle classes jobs to Mexico. You should be proud.

Bruce Wallace

Gonzales isn't just for denying gun ownership rights. He is also for warrantless searches, illegal wiretaps and anything else the Bush administration claims should be allowed. It is ironic that Gorbachev about a year ago stated that the wall between the US and Mexico will lead to the keeping Americans from leaving just as was done by the Berlin wall to keep east Germans from leaving. Also, Putin just said this week (May, 2007) that the US is acting like a Nazi government in its quest to take over the world. Why does it take communists and socialists to point out that our US government is turning into a dictatorship? And, remember, Hitler was real big on taking guns away from private citizens which he did before nearly taking over the entire world.
