I admit that I missed this the first time around, but the NRA’s Chris Cox did not.
In a rash attempt to deflect attention away from himself and his own irresponsibility, Holder let Congress know that the Obama administration is still working toward the day when it can reinstate former President Bill Clinton’s so-called “assault weapons” ban. According to Holder:
This administration has consistently favored the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban. It is something that we think was useful in the past with regard to the reduction that we’ve seen in crime, and certainly would have a positive impact on our relationship and the crime situation in Mexico.
It’s difficult to follow Holder’s logic here, but it goes something like this …
The Obama administration — particularly Eric Holder’s Justice Department — oversaw an epic scandal whereby our own federal government illegally funneled thousands of firearms into the hands of Mexican drug lords. This contributed to the death of one U.S. Border Patrol agent and hundreds of Mexicans.
Despite being head of the Justice Department and our nation’s chief law enforcement officer, Eric Holder claims he doesn’t know how or why this scandal occurred, or even who under his charge may have authorized it. He also refuses to turn over critical documents to congressional investigators that could help prevent something this tragic and corrupt from ever happening again.
Therefore, Obama and Holder are confident that if they can ban a large number of the legal firearms that law-abiding Americans use every day for self-defense, hunting, and recreational and competitive target shooting, it will help solve Mexico’s crime problem.
The fact that the architect of the ineffectual Clinton-era ban, Dennis Burke, ran Operation Fast and Furious is hardly an accident. Operation Fast and Furious was a gun control effort by the Obama Administration that relied upon Mexican citizens being shot to pieces as the key part of the plan.
Frankly, I’m amazed that the Latino community in the United States and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus isn’t marching on the White House in a hundred-thousand strong torches-and-pitchforks mob to run Obama, Holder and their co-conspirators out of town on a rail. The Obama Administration plotted to have hundreds or thousands of Mexicans–and Americans along the Southwest Border–killed with weapons they walked, in order to implicate American gun dealers… all to bring back the assault weapons ban.
If I were Speaker of the House John Boehner or Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell I’d be making Fast and Furious the number one issue in national politics today, as befitting the most murderous and dishonorable plot in American Presidential political history that it is.
The Obama organization is Murder, Incorporated.
It’s time that people called them out on it, especially those communities that Obamites were willing to sacrifice on the alter of gun control.
