Response from Senator Enzi re: Eric Holder

Posted by oshane | Leave a comment at the end of this post.

Dear [O.]Shane:

On February 2, I voted against Eric Holder to be the Attorney General.  The top lawyer of our nation should not have an agenda against the Second Amendment and must be able to make difficult legal decisions without falling to political pressure.  Unfortunately, a majority of my colleagues were willing to support this nomination.  The Senate voted 75-21 to confirm Mr. Holder. 

I have been and will continue to be a defender of the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  I am strongly opposed to any limitations on law-abiding gun owners.  While no one condones the purchase and use of guns by felons or high-risk individuals in committing a crime, we cannot improperly hamper the Second Amendment Rights of those who obey our laws.  I believe that we should find out which current gun laws are working to keep the guns out of the hands of criminal, and then make sure that those weapons are enforced.

Thank you for contacting me with your thoughts.  I rely on the ideas and suggestions from the people of Wyoming.


Michael B. Enzi

United States Senator
