Should Attorney General Eric Holder be disbarred?

Eric Holder

The Second Amendment and Holder’s refusal to recognize it

Eric Himpton Holder, now serving as the Attorney General of the United States, graduated from Columbia University in 1973 with a bachelor’s degree in American History. Thereafter he graduated from Columbia Law School in 1976. By anyone’s standards, Mr. Holder has had an accomplished career and risen to professional heights that only a distinguished few have known. Presently he is serving at one of the highest capacities for anyone in his profession—Attorney General of the United States.

Throughout his career, Mr. Holder has taken many oaths to uphold and preserve the Constitution. When he was admitted to practice in the federal court system, he had to take the following oath:

I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true and faithful allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.
