Obfuscation: Dems Push Gun Control To Hide 'Gunwalker' Scandal

These politicians -- who seem immune to either common sense or irony -- can perhaps be convinced to re-title this legislation the Eddie Espinoza Act of 2011, in honor of the Democratic mayor of Columbus, NM, who was recently convicted of trafficking guns to Mexican drug cartels. Espinoza may face up to 65 years in prison -- up to 10 years in federal prison for each of the smuggling counts and up to five years for the conspiracy charge as well as each of the false statement charges -- for committing many of the same criminal acts (on a much smaller scale) as those carried out by the federal government that prosecuted his case.

Representatives Maloney, Cummings, and Carolyn McCarthy seem to be far less interested in holding those responsible for Gunwalker to account than they are in persecuting gun owners and hobbling the investigations into the scandal being played out in the House and Senate.

We saw this disreputable behavior from Cummings when he held a minority forum several weeks ago that was focused on blame-shifting instead of accountability, and in the 26-page political report that minimized the magnitude of the crimes perpetrated under the guise of law enforcement while building the case for gun control.

Anti-gun Democrats are pushing laws that would only affect the law-abiding, while attempting to direct attention away from what appears to be a widespread criminal conspiracy by executive branch agencies to arm narco-terrorists and then use the violence caused by those weapons to influence U.S. gun laws.

Americans don’t need more gun laws.

What me need are federal law enforcement agencies, legislators, and elected and appointed officials that aren’t willing to “break a few eggs” -- or a few hundred lives -- in order to take part in an illegal and murderous conspiracy.
