O-Day+52: Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske

The man invested to run the US's "policies, priorities, and objectives to eradicate illicit drug use, manufacturing, and trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences". Obviously he's got a lot on his plate in regards to the heated up drug wars in Mexico that are spilling over here.

Gil Kerlikowske? Where have I heard that name before? Oh, right. He stood shoulder to shoulder with Paul Helmke and John Donohue in a debate last October on the issue of firearms and crime. His statements show that he blames firearm crime on the legal owners (due perhaps to personal experience), opposes Concealed Carry, and has also supported bans on "Assault Weapons" etc.

With the whole "US is supplying machine guns to Mexico" meme flying around, what do you think Kerlikowske's focus is going to be on?

So Ray Schoenke? Is this one of Obama's "so-called "gun-grabbing" cohorts" or not?
