Holder (D) to Call For More Gun Control

Holders reason for more gun control is as bad as whatever 'logic' led people to think Gun Walking would be a good idea. He is going to explain that stricter gun control laws would have stopped law enforcement agents from intentionally getting guns to the drug cartels. If we have gotten to a point were we would need to curtail everyone's second amendment rights to prevent our government from arming our enemies and the enemies of our allies; it is hard to think of a more forceful argument to throw them out of office and start over.

"An advance copy of Attorney General Eric Holder’s Tuesday testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, obtained by The Daily Caller, shows that he will not preemptively address several significant issues raised during the ongoing Operation Fast and Furious scandal.
Holder continues to claim Operation Fast and Furious was a “local” program run out of Phoenix, Ariz., despite mounting evidence to the contrary. Most recently, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, the head of the DOJ’s criminal division and Holder’s top deputy, confessed last week to at least some responsibility for Operation Fast and Furious.

“Today, I would like to correct some of the inaccurate — and irresponsible — accusations surrounding Fast and Furious,” Holder’s prepared testimony reads. “Some of the overheated rhetoric might lead you to believe that this local, Arizona-based operation was somehow the cause of the epidemic of gun violence in Mexico. In fact, Fast and Furious was a flawed response to, not the cause of, the flow of illegal guns from the United States into Mexico.”

In his testimony, Holder also advocates for new gun-control laws that he says would have halted, or at least prevented, Operation Fast and Furious. Holder echoes California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s comments from last week, when she argued that stricter gun laws would have stopped law enforcement agents from facilitating the sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels.
