Arizona Congressman: “Is Fast and Furious part of the president’s gun proposal?

Mark SalmonAn Arizona Republican lawmaker who is unimpressed with President Obama’s proposed gun legislation to date, criticized him and asked if a renewed Fast and Furious probe might be included in the list.

“My home is the home to Fast and Furious, where there was gun-running across the Mexican border, and you know we still haven’t gotten any clear answers,” U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon said according to Red Alert Politics.

“Is that part of the President’s gun proposal? To finally come to grips and find out what actually happened with Fast and Furious and how far it went up to the top, to Eric Holder? Because I haven’t heard that yet.”

Salmon made his remarks at a monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” where he added that enforcing current gun laws would be a better solution than enacting newer and stricter laws.

“I agree with my colleague from Arizona,” Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. said. “The President did offer 23 executive actions that he proposed. I believe it was number 13 that I do agree with, which is enhanced enforcement of our current laws. The problem is, that’s his job. That’s the attorney general’s job. And I would appreciate if they would do their jobs.”
