When I first came across these allegations, I was confident they were not true. I have hunted with John Boehner; had in-depth discussions with John concerning our Second Amendment rights; studied his politics; and have a clear understanding of how he views our God-given right to keep and bear arms. With all this in mind, I called his office to inform him of what had been published about him, in relation to the House Oversight Committee's Fast and Furious hearings. I also asked for some information to share that would help my fellow Second Amendment activists understand his position on Fast and Furious.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, while some people have exaggerated what I wrote, even without attribution, as far as what I wrote, I stand by my sources.
As another long-time student of the politics of gun-control and the GOP told me, "Look, Mike, I don't have your sources, but a second-grader could figure out two simple facts. First, that the GOP leadership has been intimately involved with decisions on the focus, direction and speed of the Issa committee's investigation from the very beginning. They wouldn't be 'leadership' if they weren't, especially on something this politically dangerous to Obama and the federal regime. Second, the investigation has not vigorously pursued all the clues that it has itself admitted that it had in the various letters to Holder, etc. . . . (and) that it has recently slowed down. Is this an accident? Is Boehner not in communication with Issa and making political calculations constantly about where this is going? . . . Only an idiot would think so."
