Democratic lawmakers say Fast and Furious proof of need for harsher gun laws

Right on cue, Democratic lawmakers have begun to say the DOJ’s lethal and irresponsible Fast and Furious program underscores the need for stricter gun control laws:

“This hunt for blame doesn’t really speak about the problem,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein at a recent Senate Judiciary hearing while discussing Fast and Furious.

“And the problem is, anybody can walk in and buy anything, .50-caliber weapons, sniper weapons, buy them in large amounts, and send them down to Mexico. So, the question really becomes, what do we do about this?”

The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) have introduced a dedicated firearms trafficking statute, but it has stalled in the House Judiciary Committee.

Republicans rightly have pushed back against this narrative. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) put it best when he said simply, “I get it, I’d want to change the subject too if I were them. I’m happy to have a conversation about broader gun laws, but we’re going to do it after Fast and Furious.”

  1. Vote Orly Taitz-Senator for California-time for Feinstein’s communist ways to go.

  2. Gloria Jimenez Ross says

    FEINSTEIN is as much of an IDIOT as HILLARY CLINTON – we don’t need more stringent GUN LAWS – we need MORE GOVERNMENT CONTROL – we need to get rid of the GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION – Fast and Furious had NOTHING to do with GUN CONTROL – it is GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION and an aim to ARM a foreign country, disarm AMERICA and leave AMERICANS defenseless and OPEN TO ATTACK so that the CORRUPT MACHINE in Washington can effect MARTIAL LAW!!! GET RID OF OBANMA, HOLDER, HILLARY, FEINSTEIN, BOXER, PELOSI, REID, NAPOLITANO, JULIE FERNANDES,ROSA SOLIZ, AND CECILIA NUñEZ. THEY ARE ALL TRAITORS

    • I appreciate your enthusiasm, truly I do. However, if you state,”we need MORE GOVERNMENT CONTROL”, folks like Feinstein, and Boxer, and Schumer, always imagine the extra added phase,”in regulation of your private life”.
      I hoping you actually meant,”we need MORE GOVERNMENT SELF-RESTRAINT, AND COMMON SENSE”. You hardly need to encourage the ‘Better living through government intrusion’ folks at all.

  3. Jordan Sparks says

    Yes, I also believe we should have more gun control, no Democrat should ever be allowed to own or use one.

  4. reginald zenkewich says

    The only ones who need gun control are those who started Fast and Furious as well as being tried at a Peoples Court for sedition and or treason!

  5. “Democratic lawmakers say Fast and Furious proof of need for harsher gun laws”

    ABSOLUTELY!!!! Derelict federal agencies that like the ATF anf the Justice Department have demonstrated an irresponsible attitude towards firearms, and clearly need adult supervision in firearms issues. If only they could learn from the examples of millions of law-abiding firearms owners throughout our great nation, the citizen-armed United States of America!

  6. What we need are stricter lawmaker control laws!!!

  7. You stupid lawmakers are so ojut of touch withreality it is beyond human belief. The government let the the guns go across the border so we need to have stricter laws controlling our lawmakers not the gun owners. Get a grip and go home all you women that believe in doing a mans job of securing the streets and the country. You have sat on your arces too long and believe you are the goddesses brought forth by Obama to do his bidding. You are in the government to do the bidding of the American People
