The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has been holding hearings on the ATF’s horrifying Gunwalker scandal, in which the ATF trafficked guns to Mexican gun cartels. The ranking Democrat on the committee wants to change the subject, so he is summoning a bunch of gun control advocates to testify at the committee, presumably to blame gun owners for something.
Wait a second. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), a fierce gun-control advocate, wants to divert the hearing away from the ATF’s activities trafficking guns to Mexican drug cartels? It makes you wonder what gun control really means to these people.
Anyway, I see this as likely to backfire. These people will be testifying at a hearing on Gunwalker. Democrats will be happy to solicit their usual sob stories and bogus statistics, but Republicans will make them answer questions on Gunwalker, one of the worst gun-control scandals in American history. Make them explain why we should restrict the right of law-abiding Americans while the administration trafficks guns to Mexican drug cartels.
