Attorney General Eric Holder testified to a Senate committee today, and as expected part of his strategy was to blame the mess on a lack of Republican willingness to support tighter gun control measures. Huh?

As Ace put it, Holder’s “solution” has a “you have to stop us before we kill again” ring to it:

Many believe “Fast & Furious” was little more than an attempt to gin up support for gun control in the US (which is at a record low), and by going this route Holder does little but confirm that suspicion.

The solution to incompetence and corruption at the upper levels of government is not to disarm law abiding Americans — but to disarm the incompetent and corrupt by removing them from their positions of power.

    100% agreement, Doug. This has been little more than an attempt to disarm law abiding gun owners to speed these corruptocrats toward complete power and control over the citizenry. Oh, what a tangled web they have woven.

    And if their intent in this stuff is gun control, it's a big time backfire. When drug cartels and others are increasingly arming themselves (thanks in part to our super-intelligent government), is the inclination of the populace to want to become less armed, or more?

    Here`s where the left`s (in general) notion that their grand schemes will work as planned with no deviance or resistance falls flat on its face. They scheme in a vacuum, totally failing to realize that people are individuals and react according to their own perceptions.

    Support for gun control is at an all time low (Rasmussen), gun ownership and CCP(W) requests and training program sign-ups are at an all time high. I`d say the gooberment`s plans have failed miserably !

    If the left would just stop trying to "tinker" with the Constituition and follow it our country would be doing just fine.

    "They scheme in a vacuum,"

    Wuh-BAM! As do all schemers. Hey, 'I' sole the answers to the Algebra test. Sure as hell did! Not um… stopping to think the teacher would it put it together and uh..?

    Mostly I took it to -show- I could take it, not ace the exam. In the end, admin. grudgingly allowed me and my cohorts on to HS. I was uh… thirteen fricken years old!

    And, of course, he also wants more money. Possibly the Administration's new plan is to build a wall of silver dollars along the Mexican border.
