Holder Meets with Tucson Victims, Presses Stricter Gun Laws

Holder Meets with Tucson Victims, Presses Stricter Gun Laws

Attorney General Eric Holder met with the survivors of the tragic Tucson shooting from January 2011 to discuss stricter gun laws. Twelve people survived, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and six others died.

There was a tragedy a month before — December 14, 2010. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by smugglers using high-powered weapons supplied by the United States government in Operation Fast & Furious. On February 14, 2011, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was murdered in Mexico by drug cartels using weapons supplied by our government in a gunwalking operation out of Texas.

Mr. Holder has not met with either family. He did not reach out to the Terry family until he was called out during a congressional hearing. A letter to Brian’s mother penned by AG Holder was leaked to the media before she received it.

Holder’s visit to Tucson victims centered on passing new anti-gun laws. Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News revealed emails last December that proved Fast & Furious was used to support stricter gun control laws.

Holder has given no indication he will visit the Terry or Zapata families any time soon.
