Texas Senator John Cornyn on Fast and Furious‏

This is a good move, why is it we are shutting the gate after the live stock has gotten out? (So to speak) Not that I am ungrateful that they are taking this action. But it should never have been an issue. We are in need of a big time house cleaning here in our own home America. Remember freedom is not free. When good men do nothing evil men prevail.

Cornyn Introduces Amendment to Put an End to ‘Fast and Furious’ 


Provision Would Block All Funding for Current and Future Gun-Walking Operations


WASHINGTON-U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and former state Attorney General, today filed an amendment toH.R. 2112 that would bar taxpayer funds from being used by the Department of Justice to conduct any current or future gun-walking program similar to the “Fast and Furious” operation.


“When 2000 firearms go missing and at least one is found at the crime scene of a murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent, we must do everything possible to ensure that such a reckless and ill-advised operation like ‘Fast and Furious’ is not repeated.


“In addition to this amendment, Mr. Holder owes Americans a full accounting on all alleged gun-walking operations, including a response to allegations of another Texas-based scheme, and I encourage him to come up to Capitol Hill to do so as soon as possible.”


Sen. Cornyn has also previously sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder demanding answers following other press reports of alleged Texas-based gun-walking programs similar to the “Fast and Furious” operation currently being investigated by Congressional lawmakers.

No funds made available under this Act shall be used to allow the transfer of firearms to agents of drug cartels where law enforcement personnel of the United States do not continuously monitor and control such firearms at all times.


Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services and Budget Committees.  He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
