During the committee’s hearings on Justice Department oversight, Holder also blamed the on-going inquiry into Fast and Furious on Republican politics. He refused to apologize to the family of murdered U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, beside whose lifeless body one, and perhaps two, guns walked by Fast and Furious were found. In another effort to protect the Obama Administration against criticism, Holder suggested that Agent Terry’s murder shouldn’t be blamed on Fast and Furious in the first place. And he faulted the House of Representatives for voting to withhold federal funds from any effort to implement the BATFE’s requirement that firearm dealers in the southwest border states report sales of two or more detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles of greater than .22 caliber. via NRA-ILA :: Holder: Blame Fast and Furious on Someone Else.
There you have it: BATFE handing guns to criminal sociopaths was not the problem here, it was instead the Republicans failing to fund the regulation requiring tracking of the MAGAZINES that were clicked into the guns BATFE handed out.
I think I just had an aneurism…
