Rep. Louie Gohmert: Attorney General Eric Holder is one to talk about gun control
By Kelsey Osterman /// December 16, 2012
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) took the Obama administration to task over Operation Fast and Furious Sunday morning, calling out Attorney General Eric Holder for his hypocritical remarks on gun control on Friday.
In response to Holder’s statement following the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Conn., Gohmert said Holder was one to talk about gun control, following his department’s ‘Fast and Furious’ gun scandal.
“We need to discuss who we are as a nation, talk about the freedoms that we have, the rights that we have, and how those might be used in a responsible way,” Holder said Friday.
After being asked about Holder’s statements by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, Gohmert laid into the Attorney General for his comments.
“Well I think coming from him, that’s really important to note, coming from a man who’s over a department that forced the sale of guns to people that would bring about the death of people like Brian Terry, and there should be national outrage about Mexicans — our neighbors — 200 or more that have been killed by the guns that his department have forcibly — forced to be sold,” Gohmert said.
Brian Terry was a U.S. border patrol agent who was killed with guns acquired by Mexican bandits through Operation Fast and Furious. During Fast and Furious, the U.S. allowed guns to be sold to known Mexican cartels with the intention of tracing the guns to the cartel leadership — but the U.S. lost track of some of the guns. The gunwalking scandal was the subject of intense Congressional scrutiny last summer, and Holder was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to release certain documents in his department’s possession that could have helped aid in the House’s investigation of the matter.
Holder’s remarks came exactly two years to the day of Terry’s death.

What is the DOJ responsibility to all of the little children Mexico that have been killed with guns from Fast and Furious,is that media outrage? I think Eric Holder is a racist, leftist political shill that has a history of being untruthful and being a political operative. Mark Rich ring a bell?
