The NRA is Furious about Eric Holder's Fast and Furious Program - Why Isn't Dianne Feinstein?
With all of the talk about gun control coming from the left and particularly from Senator Dianne Feinstein, you would think they would also have some sense of outrage about Attorney General Eric Holder's refusal to cooperate with the investigation into the failed gunrunning program, Fast and Furious. The National Rifle Association (NRA) is outraged about this issue and you should be too. Why isn't Senator Feinstein? Let's look...
In a video released last year, the NRA takes a look at a political scandal of illegal activity that is far worse than Watergate or any presidential scandal since. This failed operation, that was put in place by the Obama Administration to further its political gun control agenda, resulted in the deaths of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and hundreds, if not thousands, of Mexican citizens.
Sen. Feinstein sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is the committee with direct oversight of this program. She has the power and influence to do something about this horrible blunder. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) has been in the forefront of investigating this issue, but Feinstein remains predictably silent. If she is so outraged at the danger from "assault style" weapons, why doesn't she do something about her government's role in putting these dangerous weapons in the hands of known criminals? We all know the answer to that question. Democrats must protect fellow Democrats at ALL COSTS. Instead she would rather shift your attention and the attention of the media to taking weapons of self defense away from law abiding U.S. citizens.
After her bill was introduced yesterday, the NRA said in a statement,"Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades," the NRA said in a statement. "It's disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein's wrong-headed approach."
There are things you can do. Watch the video above in its entirety. The Democrates are pushing in everything they've got on this issue. It is time for you to "Go All In" with the NRA. If you aren't a member, JOIN TODAY! If you are an annual member, become a Life Member. If you are already a Life Member, increase your membership level. Since the recent attack on the Second Amendment began, well over 100,000 Americans have joined the NRA. I hope you will join me there.
Sen. Feinstein's hypocrisy knows no bounds. She can remain silent on the murder of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and yet come forward to attack your rights and limit your ability to defend yourself and your family. Sandy Hook was a tragedy. But so were the murders of these Mexicans, Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata. Contact your state and federal representatives. Let them know you oppose Dianne's Bill of Hypocrisy. In Texas, tell your legislator to support The Firearms Protection Act put forward by Rep. Steve Toth.
Do not sit by on the sidelines of this fight to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States of America.
