Today, anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he will be resigning from his post as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.
While gun owners welcome his departure, Eric Holder leaves many questions unanswered.
Holder successfully stonewalled and dodged answering questions of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and fellow House Oversight Committee members concerning Fast & Furious, the ATF’s botched gun running scheme which put weapons into gun smugglers’ hands in an effort to use the increased violence south of the border as a pretext for more gun control in this country.
Holder exhibited such disregard for the law that he was held in contempt of Congress in 2012 for withholding documents relating to Fast & Furious.
As you know, the failed operation directly led to the death of Brian Terry, an American citizen and Border Patrol officer. Holder has refused to take responsibility for Fast & Furious, and his resignation will be a way for him to quietly step out of the spotlight, and avoid being found officially guilty.
Gun owners will remember that GOA opposed Holder’s nomination from the very beginning. You can go here to see how your Senators voted on Holder’s nomination in 2009.
