The Obama administration has zero credibility when it comes to crafting regulations to control guns in this country.
Its illegal gun-running operation forced legitimate firearms dealers to sell arms to known straw buyers, then allowed thousands of weapons to "walk" across our borders to Mexican criminals. Ultimately, it resulted in the murders of some 200 civilians and at least one U.S. border patrol agent. This fiasco rivals the total deaths of all mass killings in this country in the past decade.
At the very least, Attorney General Eric Holder should have been removed from office. As for the president, from the recent photos of him skeet shooting at Camp David, I highly recommend he seek lessons from a National Rifle Association-certified firearms instructor.
