Most likely without realizing it,Holder actually told the truth for once when he admitted to Congress that Obama wants to reinstate a ban on assault weapons,
“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.”
Chris Cox,Executive Director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action,summed up Holder’s statement and actions this way,
“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.
