Skip to comments.Holder: We Must Answer 'Hard Questions' About Gun Rights
Posted on 12/15/2012 9:35:32 PM PST by Nachum
Attorney General Eric Holder made a few remarks about the massacre at Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School that should raise some eyebrows.
"As a nation I think we have to ask ourselves some hard questions. We gather too often to talk about these kinds of incidents. We need to discuss who we are as a nation, talk about the freedoms that we have, the rights that we have and how those might be used in a responsible way. But for now I think we should concentrate on dealing with the situation in Connecticut and we are doing, and I said, the best we can at the Justice Department and throughout federal law enforcement."
Mr. Holder has not been one to hide his hatred of guns. In March Breitbart News uncovered a video of Mr. Holder talking to the Woman's National Democratic Club in 1995. He wanted a campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way" and to use anti-smoking ads as a way to "change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC" about guns.
In Operation Fast and Furious the ATF allowed guns to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. Emails have shown officers discussing how to use these stats to enforce tougher gun control laws.

Asking holder his name is a hard question for him.
My first “hard question” is, why isn’t Holder in prison?
First, let’s have Holder and Obama answer some ‘hard questions’ about Fast & Furious.
This from a man who placed automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels...
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Yeah, the Constitution is a “hard” concept. /s
Amazing how the Left exploits the behavior of sociopaths and murdered children to further its communistic agenda.
LOL this coming from Holder, who gave guns to Mexican drug lords who ended up murdering Brian Terry..WOW the hypocrisy of these loons never ceases to amaze me. Meanwhile, Obama smuggled weapons from Turkey to Syria which was the reason why Ambassador Stevens was in Libya on September 11th..this Administration has blood on their hands yet they preach to US about gun violence
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Its called the 2nd Amendment!!!!
I was half expecting the weapons used in CT to have originated in F&F.
Perhaps he should shift his focus to all the children killed in the cease pool inner cities every night of week.
FUEH. Bill of Rights is NOT negotiable. And what about Mexico ?
These facts are known by the politicians.
These side effects have been acknowledged by the drug companies.
One begins to wonder if the fascists in our gov’t - who know the first step in taking over a country is the necessity of stripping citizens of their guns - didn't go to the drug companies and make a deal to develop these drugs - for this purpose. The fact that these gun-controllers, from the president on down, were loud and clear in demanding gun-control, using this tragedy for their agenda, while those little bodies were still in that school speaks volumes!
Yes, such evil exists. It operates on such high levels because decent people can't conceive of such raw evil.
We need to acknowledge it.
We need to let our politicians and media KNOW we know - and know THEY know - and demand they answer us individually.
BAN THESE DRUGS...and those that demand gun-control. They are even more dangerous.
I’ll answer your hard question, Holder, get the F out of our lives. Shut up and act like a grown up, whoops forgot, that is impossible for a hard core communists.
Holder should be impeached, removed, and then either incarcerated or executed.
The only so-called “hard question” Holder has in mind is how to disarm the workers and peasants most quickly and easily.
The federal government’s biggest gun-runner wants us to ask hard questions? I have a few but he seems a little short on answers.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
End of discussion.
BTW, I don't see anything in there about the FedMob arming international drug cartel syndicates in friendly foreign nations. I think that's an act of war a RICO violation and treason, Eric. Not to mention complicity in the murder of over 300 Mexican citizens and two Federal agents.
The boy probably wants to take our guns away so he can sell them back to us “under the table” later on after the dust settles.
They are very sad. They do not have a God. They only have a government. The government must be able to save them, there must be some law that will save them from evil. They have to grasp onto the lie that a gun ban will stop the evil from happening.
This is the same communist who provides cash to buy and enables transport of AK47s to Sinaloa Drug Lords, so they can assassinate US Border Patrol Agents, other USembassy officials in Mexico, and countless Mexican victims. And then he denies and lies.
What a coinkydink—we still have some hard questions about guns for Holder.
Ironic coming from the guy who can't answer questions about Fast and Furious.
Coming out of the 2012 disaster, the Republican party was fractured. I can think of few better ways to reunify this party than to have the liberals go after our firearms. Rhey might as well try to confiscate our bibles. Molan Labe you SOBs.
Eric Holder is never going to walk away from the murder of Brian Terry. Fast and Furious will never be forgotten.
Holder see ya in hell bro....I hope the family ends up owning you.
Yesterday, not a single child was murdered by a law abiding, gun owning citizen.... throughout our entire country.
I have owned guns for all of my adult life and even as a child. I have never once murdered a child. My personal guns have never killed any innocent person.
Yet the politicians want to talk about taking our guns away.... nothing seems more important to them today. These same politicians have done nothing to address the real problems that lead to this sick society.
If EVERY SINGLE law abiding citizen were to peacefully turn in all of their guns tomorrow, the yet to be committed mass murder would still occur. Those politicians will have done nothing to work on the real problem.
I am so sick of this war that our own government is waging against honest law abiding people.
If we as a People truly want to save lives, we MUST get these corrupt morons removed from power.
Another imminent crisis that must be used to distract the public from how ridiculously poorly this crony socialism is working.
Starting with what did you know and when did you know it when it comes to Fast and Furious Mr Holder..
Eric Holder believes that only Mexican Drug Cartels are allowed to have guns
Holder is so Third Reich, Hitler would have relaxed his hatred for Blacks to have him in his inner circle
“Another imminent crisis that must be used to distract the public from how ridiculously poorly this crony socialism is working.”
I agree with you. However, what these socialist criminals are doing is pure evil. They are exploiting dead children for their evil political gains. They aren’t honoring these children or the dead adults. They are walking over their dead bodies to further their communist, GODLESS agendas.
They are as evil as the demented shooter. Their hatred for the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and the American people have no bounds.
True, the weak GOP got a contempt charge on Holder but didn’t bother to drag it into the news, every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month and finally every year until he was removed.
The left is so much better at this and why the Hussein Asylum got another four years.
Look into the Chinese mass stabbings the last few years.
It is not pretty.
“Holder: We Must Answer ‘Hard Questions’ About Gun Rights”
How about first answering the hard questions related to your gun running activities to Mexican drug lords...
“As a nation I think we have to ask ourselves some hard questions”
I agree..., Eric what was your involement in the Murder of our Border Agent in Operation fast and Furious????
Amswer that truthfully Eric you stinking Traitor.
Ironic coming from the guy who can’t answer questions about Fast and Furious.
And who on the right will dare go on a mainstream show and say that?
1. No more gun free zones. Period.
2. 25% of the teachers in every school district be required to take a two week "summer camp" firearms instruction course, 1st week basic, 2nd week advanced, by certified instructors.
3. The staff rotates every summer until 100% of the staff are handgun proficient.
4. At least 50% of the staff on any given day are carrying, with rotation of assignment.
Any logical argument against this proposal?
As you know the teachers in Israel are armed and have prevented many attacks on their children.
Ugh, er, What? We can't have that here? Why not? Is your kid worth it?
Oh yeah, I forgot, the 'end justifies the means' and 'don't let a good crisis go to waste.' I see. Well, thought I would ask anyway. . .
FlingWingFlyer ~: “My first hard question is, why isnt Holder in prison? “
Good question !
It is hard for someone who is sworn to uphold the Constitution to keep his sworn oath and still handcuff himself.
The “Just-Us “ dept. in “Fast and Furious” ( 2 years , and counting) 9 people quit/fired , but no one in jail .
Benghazi = “Fast and Furious , part deux “ , three months and still waiting to hear from the Secretary of State... (yawn)
What is all this c$$p about having a “conversation.” What they want is not talk. They want confiscation of all long guns other than bolt actions and muzzleloaders. And stamping of ammunition for the remaining guns to make it prohibitively expensive.
But I guess some focus group somewhere told them to call it a conversation.
What’s hard about “shall not be infringed” ???
Holders main problem seems to be his lack of willingness to answer questions. He had no problem being ot front of the Jorge Zimmerman issue. Just the words of a dishonest racist, disregard.
I wonder if the Sandy Hook weapons are traced to FAST and FURIOUS if that would embarass the MSM to cover the story?
My first hard question is, why isnt Holder in prison?
The only hard question Holder needs to ask is this, “Am I ready to kill thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of his people to kill thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of those damn bitter clingers?”. We are all waiting for his answer.
Like anyone cares what Holder says.
He is merely Obama’s puppet, he says what Obama tells him to say.
“COME AND TAKE IT”
