Issa schedules second "Gunwalker" hearing
Sen. Grassley will lead off with his experience trying to pry documents out of the agency, I suspect in order to lay more basis for a contempt citation, He'll be followed by relatives of the murdered Border Patrol agent, and by several of the agents who blew the whistle. Then an Assistant Attorney General goes on the hot seat. More detail by David Codrea and by Dave Workman.
UPDATE: here's the official release. June 15, 10 AM, with a webcast page given.
Dear Sen. Grassley:
Waco, Ruby Ridge, Gun Runner. Three strike rule!
Time to dismantle BATF&E
NFA Branch to IRS…they do collect taxes right?
Alcohol and Tobacco to DEA…they are drugs right?
Firearms Technology Branch…to FBI they already have the firearms lab right?
Explosives to FBI… ATF and FBI already have duplicate labs at taxpayer expense and have turf wars every time there is an incident.
FBI already does the background checks for all of the above.
Better yet, get rid of NFA34 and GCA 68 and FOPA 86 as unconstitutional. See DC v Heller and McDonald v Chicago with a glance at the 2nd amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
One law…no guns for felons or mentally ill. Like we don’t have that now anyway and it’s not working.
