Dems propose more gun control, more money for ATF

During Attorney General Eric Holder's sworn testimony before Congress today, Democrats in one accord not only defended Holder's handling of the Fast and Furious scandal but proposed more gun control and more money for the ATF as means of addressing the problem.
Holder and the Democrats on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform blasted Republicans on the committee for questioning Holder's integrity, although it has been shown that he has lied to Congress on at least two separate occasions. The Justice Department also lied to Congress.
Rather than addressing the real problem at the core of Fast and Furious--corruption within the Justice Department and the ATF in approving an operation to allow thousands of U.S. guns to walk into Mexico as a vehicle by which to call for more gun control--Democrats on the committee instead have followed the script set in 2009 by those in the Obama Administration who conceived and implemented the illegal scheme.
