"Over the years, numerous scholars and politicians have tried to make the argument that the Second Amendment deals only with the right of a state to create a militia. In The Californian's Oct. 9 Sunday Forum, Dr. William Bezdek tries to make the argument that because so-called paranoid factions of certain organizations have heavily campaigned to change this interpretation to one that allows the individual to keep and bear arms (even though this right exists pursuant to the Constitution), it is they that are the underlying reason for the unfortunate deaths in Northern California. ..." ...

... "So not only has Holder appointed a trusted friend and confidant to head the agency at the center of an international scandal, that same friend and confidant appears to have been directly involved in the inception of the scandal itself. If this is indeed the case, then B. Todd Jones has a serious conflict of interest and, either way, Eric Holder has some explaining to do."

"Since his appointment as part-time, interim, acting director of ATF, Jones and his chief deputy have made some disturbing comments about the Fast and Furious debacle, which indicate complete ignorance of, disregard for, or intentional obfuscation of the known facts." ...

... "The problem, though, is that even what is increasingly becoming known as 'Holder's incompetence defense' is clearly a lie. Even if he didn't read about 'Fast and Furious' in the reports prepared for him in the summer of 2010, one would certainly hope he read the letters from Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) this past February. The first, delivered February 9, didn't mention 'Fast and Furious' by name, but was explicitly about 'gunwalking,' and how that practice contributed to the killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. ..."

"In other words, Holder absolutely knew about 'Operation Fast and Furious,' and the fact that that operation centered on 'gunwalking,' not a 'few weeks' before Representative Issa asked him when he knew about it, but a few months before ..." ...

Democrats have almost universally given up on gun control as a losing issue, there's been no serious action on the federal front for years, and the Supreme Court in 2008 handed down the holy grail of gun rights, ruling in Heller that the Second Amendment guarantees a personal right to bear arms and then ruling a couple of years later in McDonald that this guarantee applies to states and local communities as well as the federal government." ...
