Also please note from this circulating email by the Brady Campaign to strip the 2nd Amendment, those that walked out on the contempt of holder vote were allies of the Brady bunch.
Weak Gun Laws Are the Real Problem:
We are making sure the media and the politicians hear the truth!
Since the Fast and Furious story broke more than a year ago, the Brady Campaign has been leading the charge that the real issue is America's abysmal gun laws that enable gun trafficking to Mexico in the first place.
Yesterday's vote by the GOP-led House to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt was a cynical political ploy that we have worked to expose in recent days. Our allies in Congress walked out on the charade and the media have taken notice and begun to call out the leaders of the House of Representatives for their unbridled hypocrisy.
Congressional leaders' lack of concern for the thousands of Americans who die every year as a result of our terrible gun laws is outrageous.
Even worse is the fact that these leaders could do so much to prevent these deaths — but choose to do the bidding of the gun lobby, instead.
Until Congress stands up to the strong-arm tactics of the gun lobby, we all — north as well as south of the Mexican border — remain in danger.
The Brady Campaign will always make sure your voice is heard.

While Rep. Issa and U.S. House leadership continue the political theater, thousands of American and Mexican lives remain at risk.
Congress! Stop arming dangerous people now!
