Gohmert: Attorney General Eric Holder is one to talk about gun control

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) took the Obama administration to task over Operation Fast and Furious Sunday morning, calling out Attorney General Eric Holder for his hypocritical remarks on gun control on Friday.

In response to Holder’s statement following the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Conn., Gohmert said Holder was one to talk about gun control, following his department’s ‘Fast and Furious’ gun scandal.

“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,” Holder said Friday.

After being asked about Holder’s statements by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, Gohmert laid into the Attorney General for his comments.

“Well I think coming from him, that’s really important to note, coming from a man who’s over a department that forced the sale of guns to people that would bring about the death of people like Brian Terry, and there should be national outrage about Mexicans — our neighbors — 200 or more that have been killed by the guns that his department have forcibly — forced to be sold,” Gohmert said.

    He isn’t even touching on the WMDs sold to the Satanic Brotherhood in Syria.

    That Gohmert will be on a very short list of R’s to mention this says it all about the GOP.

    Louie is one of the few, and I wish we had more of the Gohmerts representing this Rebublic, as it is the RINO’s have gone all the way to the left and Boehner and the RNC can kiss my petutie.

    Sure loves me some Gohmert. Hope he is genuine and with integrity.

    Gonna get rough(er) for individualism as the communist takeover advances.
