GOP ‘doing the bidding of the gun lobby’ on Fast and Furious, recently voted to block Obama effort to fight rifle traffickingSaturday, May 19th, 2012
The hypocrisy of the Fast and Furious, Gun lobbying et al is described below…
The House recently voted to block an Obama administration effort to give the authorities a vital additional tool to fight trafficking of assault rifles to Mexico — yet they want to scrub their fingerprints off of the Fast and the Furious. Everyone knows the NRA is Republican Right ideology/fight.
From My San Antonio:
The Brady Campaign is named for Jim Brady, the former press secretary to Ronald Reagan who was gravely wounded in the attempted assassination of the 40th president.
Gross blamed the GOP for standing in the way of efforts to combat the illegal smuggling of U.S. weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
“The House Republican leadership decries the failure of U.S. authorities to prevent illegal guns from crossing the border, yet the House recently voted to block an Obama administration effort to give the authorities a vital additional tool to fight trafficking of assault rifles to Mexico,” he said.
Gross said Boehner refuses to meet with victims of gun violence, even as he traveled to Florida “to meet with the leaders of the gun industry.”
