(Lori Piotrowski) – The National Rifle Association is taking issue with the Attorney General and his role in the ATF debacle known as Operation Fast and Furious. In fact, they are circulating a petition calling for his removal.
The petition letter is addressed to President Obama, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and various media outlets, and it cites Holder’s misuse of the office:
On Attorney General Holder’s watch, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) launched Operation Fast and Furious, an illegal pipeline of thousands of arms to Mexican drug cartels.
Two of the guns that were allowed to “walk” across our border were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent.
Attorney General Holder’s Justice Department is now stonewalling a congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.
Attorney General Holder professed his ignorance of the operation. In light of these statements he is either incompetent or covering up crimes that were committed to advance the Obama Administration’s gun control agenda.
