Eric Holder says you shouldn't have guns because you keep giving them to Mexican drug cartels -- Well, not you personally. Your government. You see, when Holder was asked by Congress what he knew about Fast and Furious and when he knew it, his answer was, well, maybe kinda sorta not entirely true. So now he's going all in on the gun-grabbing. TheDC's Matthew Boyle reports: "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's prepared testimony does not discuss his May 3 testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, an appearance during which investigators say he either lied, intentionally misled Congress or exhibited outright incompetence when answering questions about when he first learned about the failed gun-walking program... Holder continues to claim Operation Fast and Furious was a 'local' program run out of Phoenix, Ariz., despite mounting evidence to the contrary... 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." So he's going to call for the same result as he would have if he hadn't screwed it all up. Remember: If the government is underhanded and incompetent, that means the government must exert more control over your life.The whole purpose of this operation was to gin up support for additional gun control measures. It had nothing to do with tracking down Mexican druglords ro stopping gun smuggling.
