Video: Eric Holder Wanted Culture To Shame Gun Owners Like It Does To Smokers


In 1995 Eric Holder was the US Attorney for the District of Columbia and spoke at some left wing women’s conference. He made pretty clear what he thought of gun owners.

What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we’ve changed our attitudes about cigarettes. You know, when I was growing up, people smoked all the time. Both my parents did. But over time, we changed the way that people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.” (Read More)

He also said people needed to be brainwashed so they would change how they think about guns. I guess his Hollywood pals didn’t get the message, seeing how they’ve been glorifying gun violence for decades.

Holder is now working with Joe Biden on his gun control efforts. I wonder if “brainwashing” will be part of their plan.
