Eric Holder Vows To Move The Needle of Gun Control With Regulatory Power

By Breeanne Howe

In an interview with Attorney General Eric Holder, after discussing the IRS scandal of seizing AP phone records, NPR’s Carrie Johnson checked in with Holder on the issue of gun control.  According to Johnson, Holder stated that although the White House lost the battle over expanding background checks for gun purchasers, the administration will be trying again later this year to push gun control in Congress and using their “regulatory power to make smaller changes in the meantime.”  Confirming the administration’s unrelenting commitment to what many believe is an infringement of the Second Amendment, Holder declared that the goal is, “moving the needle in the way in which the American people want, which is to make guns less accessible to people that should not have them.”

So it appears that while Holder is under intense scrutiny for the IRS targeting conservative groups and the Justice Department seizing phone records from the AP, the administration is keeping a laser focus on taking guns away from American citizens.

Holder’s office has not yet responded to request for comment.
