No, he's the official who signed off on the paperwork. Obama is the one who officially authorized it, otherwise why would he give Holder Executive privilege?
Again Judicial Watch has been the point of the spear on the Fast and Furious program and it's ties to the administration. If you aren't supporting this organization you should!
Vincent Cefalu an agent for BATFE was fired by his superiors in the parking lot of a Denny's restaurant in 2012 for a single charge of "a lack of candor" related to his testimony in a criminal case. In fact it was nothing more retribution for Agent Cefalu acting as a whistle blower beginning in 2005 for criminal activity by BATFE supervisors for using an illegal wiretap. On October 7th 2014 the BATFE case was decided in his favor. See; http://www.examiner.com/article/atf-settles-termination-case-with-whistleblowing-agent-cefalu and; http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/10/07/after-inappropriate-firing-atf-settle-lawsuit-with-agent-vince-cefalu-n1901826 To describe BATFE as dysfunctional and in disarray is an understatement. Keep in mind that there are thousands of good agents who want to do the right thing, but supervisors and the upper management of the agency and their insistence to do Holders and Obamas bidding, has made it an agency rife with illegal and immoral bureaucrats that need to be removed.
Hillary Clinton believes that law abiding citizens cannot be trusted with firearms. In my opinion that makes her ineligible for the position of President.
"It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions." Letter to Peter Carr from Thomas Jefferson, 1785
What more lies from both the President and the retired Secretary of State? Say it isn't so? "It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him.

This is the same PA State Attorney General that refused to defend the PA Traditional Marriage Law. http://www.wtae.com/news/local/pennsylvania-attorney-general-kathleen-kane-wont-defend-gay-marriage-ban/20937588 First she won't do her job and now she stops an investigation with dirty politicians on tape taking money and financial gifts and says that it's racism. Sounds like a AG Holder wanna be.
One of the best posts that I've seen on why income re-distribution by government shouldn't be done, not to mention that the Constitution doesn't allow it and wanting what others have is a sin according to the Ninth Commandment.
"and many other areas which they feel perfectly qualified to regulate and control." The key word here is "feel". Liberals and progressives use emotions to motivate similarly associated individuals. I hear so many say we need more women in politics. Okay I'll agree with that if those women happen to engage their brains instead of their emotions to think through policy decisions as well as follow the Constitution. I also agree with others who have said here that all of this discussion about what caliber or the difference between a magazine and a clip is useless to a liberal/progressive. It will do little to change their viewpoint. Let's just argue this point; the Second Amendment and the SCOTUS has ruled that it is a GOD given right to keep and bear arms. Sorry Sen. DeLeon...go away! LEAVE ME ALONE!
He's also against private citizens having a semi auto rifle commonly but mistakenly labeled as an assault rifle. Personnel protection from a bad guy is one reason why we should be allowed to keep firearms, including handguns. However it isn't the reason why we have the Second Amendment. The Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment to remind the government that it serves the people not the other way around. The right to own and bear arms, including semi-auto rifles is so that we can defend ourselves against government tyranny. But I agree with you that I'm surprised that the DemoncRATS in Detroit hired him.
