Holder continues his attack on 2nd Amendment
At a press conference today announcing the drug cartel arrests (in which he had little to no involvement), US AG Holder also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.
"U.S. officials have a responsibility to make sure Mexican police are not fighting substantial numbers of weapons, or fighting against AK-47s or other similar kinds of weapons that have been flowing to Mexico,Ē Holder said.
So we are going to lose our gun rights because our government canít secure its borders, and the Mexican government canít secure law and order and weed out corruption in its military, which is no doubt a large source of firearms for drug cartels.
Interestingly enough, it was not in his prepared remarks, so it must have been in a question. This is from the Administration, folks. Obama may be willing to burn political capital on this issue. ....
