If the state of Maine can deal out punishment in a reasonable amount of time to a state trooper who pleaded guilty to a charge of driving drunk, why can’t the U.S. government deal out punishment to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for his part in the gun-selling operation known as Fast and Furious? It is well overdue.

What is fair for one is fair for all.

And why are Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg so set on trying to shoot down the Second Amendment rights of the people? Don’t they know that the bad guys will always be able to get guns?

Schumer and Bloomberg (and other government officials) should go after the bad guys; that is part of their jobs.

Their jobs are not to go after the good guys.
