CHUTZPAH: Eric Holder on cops killed with illegal guns. Hey, only some of those cops were killed with illegal guns sold to Mexican drug cartels by the Justice Department.

UPDATE: Chuck Simmins emails:

Holder may not have actually read the report. http://www.nleomf.org/assets/pdfs/reports/2011-EOY-Report.pdf

The report seems to say nothing about the use of illegal weapons. It does note that the record low for firearms fatalities was in 2008, and that since Obama came in to office the number of firearms fatalities for law enforcement has increased 70 percent. 25 of the line of duty deaths reported were due to illness or heart attack. 61 percent of all line of duty deaths were not gun related.

Six individual cases are profiled in the report. All six were clearly preventable. Only one involved a firearm and that officer was killed with his own gun.

Hmm.
