Obama and Holder are promising unilateral executive action on gun trafficking. And this time the unilateral executive action won’t be to traffic guns to Mexican drug cartels.
That’s probably a smart move considering that between the two of them, Holder and Obama probably know more about trafficking guns than anyone else. Sure this plan may seem a little like putting the crook in charge of the bank he robbed, again, but maybe the crook can reform. Or more likely not.
In a meeting with 18 mayors from across the country Tuesday, President Obama promised to push gun control through executive action while pressing Congress to pass anti-gun bills he can support.
According to a White House readout, mayors met with Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss strategies designed to reduce youth violence.
“The President applauded the mayors for their local efforts to combat violence, solicited their input about proven methods, and pledged his Administration’s partnership. He also vowed to continue doing everything in his power to combat gun violence through executive action and to press Congress to pass common-sense reforms like expanding the background check system and cracking down on gun trafficking,” the White House added.
More common sense reforms aimed at ordinary people who, unlike Obama and Holder, mostly aren’t trafficking guns to drug dealers. We can never seem to get enough of those. But can we get some common sense reforms to prevent Attorney Generals from trafficking guns to Mexican drug cartels?
