There was a hearing yesterday in Washington where U.S. Attorney John Walsh of Colorado got offended at Senator Lindsay Graham’s (R-S.C.) suggestion that he was soft on crime. Said Graham: “If we’re going to expand background checks, we ought to start enforcing the laws that are [already] on the books.” So he asked Walsh how many times he had prosecuted misconduct in background checks for firearms sales. Walsh said none, that he had other better things to do with his time:

We make 2,000 gun cases a year! We’re not paper chasers! We don’t chase paper! We chase hard criminals!

Jonathan Easley was there and reported on what happened next:

The hearing room erupted in cheers, prompting Feinstein to ask Graham and Walsh to remain civil and for the room to remain quiet.

There was a brief moment of intelligent conversation during the hearing when Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) argued that the previous assault ban didn’t work, and that Feinstein’s bill was full of “arbitrary distinctions” over the “cosmetic features” that so frightens liberals just because they look menacing but don’t alter the simple that such weapons are commonplace semi-automatic weapons after all and not fully automatic assault weapons.

Grassley also mentioned the and suggested that Congress direct its attention to some of the present 20,000 laws already on the books rather than adding new ones.

I can only conclude that this hearing was for show, and that Walsh saw through it and was having none of it. Good for him.
