Mailbag: Protesters are hypocrites

For all the people writing letters to the editor in protest of Sheriff Tim Mueller’s stance toward the proposed new firearm regulations, where were you when the Obama administration was promoting the wholesale disregard of federal firearm regulations in the Fast and Furious program?  

When those actions resulted in a surreptitiously obtained weapon being used to kill a U.S. border guard, where were your protests?

Does the word hypocrite mean anything to you?

I guess you can only disregard federal laws and the Constitution if you are high enough up the political ladder.

    Yes, and yes. The only difference between the Bush and Obama era programs was that under Obama the bad guys faced prosecution. Bush just let all the guns go. Kinda like bin Laden.

    "And then if your argument is weak always yell racist.

    Racists and gun nuts are connected at the hip. I've no doubt the author of the letter is racist, and Sheriff Mueller, and all the other paranoid delusional hypocrites. That "gun appreciation day" the other weeks? With the gun shows all across the country? Sponsored by a white supremacist group.

    jasper, are not able to understand anything? When the Bush era program was in place were there any guns shipped across the border? Did any one die? And then if your argument is weak always yell racist. That always works. What a pathetic argument

    Surprise to you! The US Supreme Court is fine with Mueller's stance. State and local law enforcement is not required, and usually PROHIBITED from enforcing federal laws. The ATF is a FEDERAL agency tasked with enforcement of federal laws. Don't you people understand? Your arguments reveal a complete lack of knowledge of our political system that you all should have learned in high school civics. See Printz v. U.S. (1997). Mueller has no jurisdiction to enforce ANY federal law or statute, whether you like it or not.

    So you're fine with Sheriff Mueller ignoring federal firearm regulations, but not the ATF?

    And I don't remember you complaining about Fast and Furious when it was a Bush era program.

    Hmm. It's because Mueller and Bush are white, and Obama is black, isn't it? That goes a long way to explaining your hypocrisy.

    Congratulations, Cameron!

    You may have actually made the most moronic pro-gun argument to date, (and given our very recent past, that is definitely saying something), mega dittos!

    Cameron, where were you when President Bush started this program? For you to claim this is an Obama program is a falsehood. The current administration continued a Bush program, which was itself an extension of a Reagan program.

    Hypocrite, indeed.
