Excerpted from CNS News:
Why is the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence attacking Republicans’ efforts to obtain documents regarding the Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal?
In a statement issued yesterday, Brady Campaign President Dan Gross ridiculed the vote to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide documents regarding the government’s botched gunrunning operation. Two guns from the operation were at the scene where murdered U.S. border agent Brian Terry was found.
Gross calls Republicans’ efforts to obtain documents regarding the gunning operation “ridiculous political theater” and an effort to “do the bidding of the NRA” (emphasis added):
“As House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa and Speaker John Boehner lead the ridiculous political theater of a contempt of Congress vote for the first time against a U.S. attorney general, American and Mexican lives remain at risk because of the out-of-control Mexican gun violence fueled by guns trafficked from American gun shops. As Issa and Boehner do the bidding of the NRA, innocent people are dying, including Americans.”
