NRA suspicious of "Fast and Furious" program's origins as contempt vote looms

A theory of conspiracy from the NRA.

The pro-gun lobby says it will be closely watching the House vote tomorrow on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

What does the NRA have to do with any of this? The organization claims "Fast and Furious," the program over which Republicans in the House are trying to grill Holder, was intentionally set up to fail in order to demonstrate the need for stricter gun control and increased regulation.

Kyle Leighton, editor at Talking Points Memo, CNN Contributor Roland Martin, and Republican strategist Hogan Gidley are OutFront to discuss this important vote tomorrow.
