Among gun grabbers quick to take advantage of the tragic shooting in Oregon, was none other than former Attorney General Eric Holder.
On the very day ten people were killed at Umpqua Community College, including the gunman, who was shot by police, Holder called for “comprehensive” gun control in a serious comment on social media:
Gun safety measures will not – by themselves – stop violence. But as part of a comprehensive effort this great Nation can be made more safe
— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) October 1, 2015
But it didn’t take long for jocularity to get the better of the retired Obama administration official, as he posted — and quickly deleted — a link to an Archie Bunker video on gun control the following evening.
Unfortunately for Holder, the Internet is forever, and Twitchy.com posted a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted:
Bunker was a lovable, if not bigoted, character played by the late Carroll O’Connor on the hit 1970s TV series “All in the Family.”
In the video clip Holder shared — ever so briefly — Bunker is seen reciting an editorial on “Gun Control & Hijacking.”
“Now, question: What was the first thing that the communists done when they took over Russia?” Bunker asked viewers. “Answer: gun control. And there’s a lot of people in this country want to do the same thing to us here in a kind of conspiracy, see.”
Odds are Holder intended to send the link to someone in a direct message. But, as Twitchy.com aptly noted, the question is who do you suppose he was sending it to?
