The anti-gun advocate also attacked TheDC for citing Morales — Mexico’s attorney general — and other Mexican government officials about statistical data covering Fast and Furious-related murders.
“The Daily Caller is dragging itself into a giant-size ditch by citing Marisela Morales and other Mexican authorities as credible sources,” Everitt said.
“Because, as you know, Mexican authorities have been always been consistent in making it clear that Wide Receiver/Fast & Furious guns are just a drop in the bucket of the total number of guns that have been illegally trafficked into Mexico over the past decade. Like the ATF, Mexican authorities have stated in no uncertain terms that the problem of military-style firearms being trafficked from U.S. gun stores and U.S. gun shows into Mexico has continued AFTER the cessation of Fast & Furious right up until the present day.”
These attacks from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence come as Holder faces contempt of Congress proceedings for refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena over the ill-fated gunwalking operation.
