Dr. Stephen Halbrook testifies on C-SPAN against the confirmation of gun-control advocate and generally power-mad political bendover Eric Holder for Attorney General of the USA, in testimony stating the obvious.
His denial that law-abiding citizens have a right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes is exemplified by his support for draconian proposal to criminalize, with severe felony penalties, exercise of that constitutional right.
Meanwhile the Gray Lady continues to stump for Stalinists and whitewash the proceedings with sock-puppet Jurnofist David Stout of the New York Times utterly failing to mention Dr. Halbrook’s testimony and instead putting forward the flat out lie that, “No one has questioned Mr. Holder’s qualifications.”
Dr. Halbrook is the author of the recent Independent Institute book, The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms, that formed the basis for the Second Amendment Book Bomb.
He was also represented by his earlier Amici Curiae Brief in the District of Columbia v. Heller case on behalf of 55 members of the Senate, the Senate President, and 250 members of the House of Representatives.
Holder meanwhile has taken an extremely constipated view of our Second Amendment rights with his tightly held opinion is that The People have no such right unless they are commanded (?) to exercise it in a formal militia – which renders the right meaningless and moot, to boot – what a poot.
