I have just sent the letter below to all of Montana's
congressional delegation, Senators Baucus and Tester,
and Representative Rehberg.
Honorable Firstname Lastname
United States Senate/House
I am sure you are aware of the blistering letter sent on
October 10, 2011 by House Oversight and Government
Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa to Attorney
General Eric Holder, documenting in great detail the
Department of Justice’s shameful scandal, the “Fast and
Furious” gun running case.
Attorney General Holder’s misconduct or incompetence
is clearly laid out in that letter, and several members of
Congress have already called for Attorney General Holder to resign.
As Montana's leading advocates for safe and legal gun
ownership and use, the Montana Shooting Sports Association
finds Attorney General Holder’s conduct to be proof of his
unfitness for continued service in that office.
In addition, we believe that the “Fast and Furious” program
had an intended goal of creating excuses to implement
additional gun control schemes to infringe on our Second
Therefore MSSA asks that you immediately and publicly
call for Attorney General Holder to resign, and that you
support further investigation to pursue appropriate criminal
charges if warranted.
I look forward to reporting to our members and supporters
that you have called for Holder’s resignation.
Thank you for your continued support of Montana’s law-
abiding gun owners.
