“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” I guess simple declarative sentences are beyond the grasp of journalism school graduates. Somehow newshounds can grasp freedom of the press but nothing else in the Constitution.
But there is another gun issue that is current and every bit as important. Operation Fast and Furious put guns in the hands of the most vicious, violent and vile drug lords in Mexico. Eric Holder, the head of our own justice department did it. How many more U.S. agents need to be murdered by Holder’s guns before he is held to account for his crimes? How many more innocent Mexican citizens will join the 200 already slaughtered by Holder’s guns?
Too strong? Ask the widows and orphans what they think of Holder’s guns. And Holder’s reply? He slapped further restrictions on gun rights, but only in the border states, because of guns leaking out to the cartels. Progressives live in a topsy-turvy world. Can we all remember Honest Abe and try to be more like him?
