Man who wants to disarm you says sequester will make you less safe

There are not going to be as many FBI agents, ATF agents, DEA agents, prosecutors who are going to be able to do their jobs,” Holder said. “They’re going to be furloughed. They’re going to spend time out of their offices, not doing their jobs.”

Somehow, contemplating that doesn’t make me feel less safe.

The looming budget sequestration will make Americans less safe, Eric Holder says—and anyone who says otherwise isn’t telling the truth.

“This is something that is going to have an impact on the safety of this country,” the U.S. attorney general told ABC’s Pierre Thomas on Wednesday in a wide-ranging, exclusive interview.

“And anybody that says otherwise is either lying or saying something that runs contrary to the facts,” Holder said.

In his interview with ABC News, Holder reiterated warnings that if automatic spending cuts are triggered on Friday, the Justice Department will be handicapped in some of its most vital missions to prevent terrorist attacks and crime.

He is actually making a pretty good case for an armed citizenry, isn’t he?

    I’ll bet we still have enough folks to run gun-walking programs to deal arms to criminals, though, won’t we Eric? We’ll still have plenty of people to watch as innocent Americans are murdered to cover up the President’s incompetence (Benghazi). Plenty of people to liase for the preezy while he lies to the American public about absolutely everything he mentions. Yep. None of those will be affected.

    Only to conservatives and libertarians. We see the logic in your comment, RD. Those on the left, however, are not constrained by logic. They will see no inconsistency in a reduction of peace keepers and the destruction of an American’s ability to defend himself.
