WASHINGTON, D.C. – “The economic problems and the government firearm scandal are two sides of the same coin,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.
Snyder is the Gun Dean, according to Human Events.
“That coin,” continued Snyder “is the belief in the efficacy of big government. To a large degree, the economic difficulties facing the country have resulted from the attempt of big government to manage the economy, in effect to stop the economy from functioning as it properly should.
“The gun scandal perpetrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of the United States Department of Justice through Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious results from belief in the ability of government programs and government operators to bring about good results from illegal behavior. The result of government involvement in illegal cross-border firearm purchases has been the use of firearms in felonious activity in Mexico and the United States, including murder, even the murder of American law enforcement agents.”
Snyder said that, “Big government is the antithesis of common sense as well as of individual freedom. It’s got to be taken down. The American people will have a good chance to begin taking it down in 15 months with elections for President, the United States Senate, and the United States House of Representatives.”
