“[T]his is not a political issue, but a corrupt bureaucracy issue,” the ATF employee posting under the screen name “Zorro” wrote in the CleanUpATF forum on Mar. 27. “There were problems throughout administrations and political party rule. This monster was fostered by both parties and multiple presidential administrations through lack of oversight and accountability.”
Just like it’s not an issue of being pro- or anti-gun. It’s an issue of out-of-control government corruption resulting in murder, which all Americans should want to get to the bottom of.
Not that the Brady Campaign and their camp followers can be bothered with such distinctions. Rather than concern themselves with stopping “gun deaths” caused by the criminal actions of those helping promote the meme that it’s all the fault of weak U.S. laws and greedy gun shops, their primary focus has been to call for even more restrictions on American gun owners and even more power for an agency and administration that resorts to stonewalling and deception in the face of congressional inquiries.
Where the hell are the Democrats?
In fact, Sen. Grassley is hamstrung by the fact he is only the ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrat Patrick Leahy chairs the committee, and he has shown zero interest in uncovering the truth. None of the “gun control” Democrats are interested in doing anything other than circling the wagons, protecting the administration, and seeing if advancing more restrictions might distract attention from the whole sordid mess.
So then where the hell are the supposedly “pro-gun Democrats”?
Why has not one stepped forward and demanded full and open investigative hearings in both the House and Senate?
Where the hell are all those NRA-endorsed Democrats? Max Baucus and Jon Tester would sure be nice allies to have, as the Senate is really where pressure on Leahy needs to come from. Where the hell are they? And while he wasn’t “endorsed” last time out due to gun owner outrage (only financed), where the hell is that “true champion of the Second Amendment” Harry Reid? Read more
