Gohmert: Gun Control Should Start With Obama

From a bemused reporter at The Hill:

Gohmert: Fast and Furious shows gun control should start with administration

By Pete Kasperowicz | January 15, 2013

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Tuesday that if the President Obama wants to impose new restrictions on gun ownership, he should start with his own administration, given how it handled the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.

"[W]e have a president who makes speeches and an attorney general that makes speeches about how they’re going to go after illegal gun sales, and yet there is blood on the hands of people in this administration, and we can’t even find out who they are," Gohmert said on the House floor Tuesday night.

Gohmert referenced the Fast and Furious operation indirectly, by noting that the Obama administration instructed gun dealers to sell guns to illegally, and promised to track those guns as they made their way to criminals. Some of the guns that were "walked" were eventually found where U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry was killed in 2010.

"The guns were not followed," he said. "They made their way into criminals’ hands, as was intended, but they weren’t followed.

"And now the administration says they want to support the rule of law and go after these illegal gun sales? Well, they have to start with their own administration." …

Of course, to be fair, the original idea behind ‘Fast And Furious’ was to use these guns showing up at crime scenes as an excuse to impose more drastic gun controls on the US populace. But the program was discovered before they could pull this off. But nobody can say that Obama wasn’t ‘trying.’

In fact, Fast And Furious was probably what Obama was talking about when he told the gun control advocate, Sarah Brady, that he was working "under the radar" to get gun control, back in April 2011.

Moreover, ‘Fast And Furious’ isn’t the only time Obama has given real life assault weapons to the bad guys. As even the New York Times reported, Obama also sent real life assault weapons to Libya, which have since ended up in the hands of terrorists. Maybe even some of the terrorists who killed our Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi.

And isn’t Obama currently trying to give weapons to the Syrian rebels, not to mention the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? Of course, it’s not a crime when Obama gives real life assault weapons to murders. Then it is government policy.

    Congressman Gohmert has defended our constitution with consistency. He has defended Michele Bachmann against the Leftists and Right Loons(John McCain and the other useful idiots). He is a patriot.
