"This administration has consistently favored the reinstatement of the Assault Weapons Ban. It is something that we think was useful in the past in regards to the reduction we've seen in crime, and certainly, has had a positive impact on the crime situation and our relationship with Mexico."
I caught Holder's utterance as well. Fortunately, he has no way of affecting such legislation.
Notice at 02:26:00, Connelly asks if there's a penalty for straw purchasing. Holder admits that there is, but that the punishment is akin to a "speeding ticket." A straw purchase is punishable by ten years in prison. If people are getting off the hook, whose fault is that?
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
