Washington, DC –-( Yesterday, anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he will be resigning from his post as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

While gun owners welcome his departure, Eric Holder leaves many questions unanswered.

Holder successfully stonewalled and dodged answering questions of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and fellow House Oversight Committee members concerning Fast & Furious, the ATF’s botched gun running scheme which put weapons into gun smugglers’ hands in an effort to use the increased violence south of the border as a pretext for more gun control in this country.

Holder exhibited such disregard for the law that he was indicted by Congress in 2012 for withholding documents relating to Fast & Furious.

As you know, the failed operation directly led to the death of Brian Terry, an American citizen and Border Patrol officer. Holder has refused to take responsibility for Fast & Furious, and his resignation will be a way for him to quietly step out of the spotlight, and avoid being found officially guilty.

Gun owners will remember that GOA opposed Holder’s nomination from the very beginning.  You can go here to see how your Senators voted on Holder’s nomination in 2009.

Obama will put his BFF Eric on the SCOTUS short list along with Hilliary.


Eric who?


@TEX – The ‘Monochrome Coalition’ doesn’t have that much ‘political power’ yet!


I sure hope brotha jesse or brotha sharpton aint attorneys !


Holder will never do the walk of shame over anything he’s done while Obysmal’s flunky because Obysmal will pardon him in the final days of his presidency! They both should have been perp walked over fast and furious but all we can do now is insure that their legacy is one of complete derision and scorn! Jimmy Carter was a clueless idiot but these two are evil and should be remembered as such!


Just because Holder is resigning don’t believe that’s the last of him. These guys are like creatures in horror movie, they keep coming back.

Hey Erik, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you. You can leave knowing you are the second worst piece of crap in DC. BTW you should take the worst dirt bag with you.


Let’s hope that this doesn’t keep us from seeing Holder do the “walk of shame.” I think he’d look good in prison orange.


And of course Holder declines 3 punks from the death penalty that killed 6 and tortured victims. Another case of blacks should be forgiven for their crimes. Holder plays one crazy race card , and he calls everyone else racist.
Glad to see him go , but it wasn’t soon enough.
