WATCH: Rep. Gosar On House Floor On Slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Fast and Furious

Two days before the 2nd anniversary of the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on the Arizona-Mexico border, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD1) spoke about Terry and about the Fast and Furious gun-walking investigation.

After using the first half of his 2 1/2 minute speech remembering Terry and recounting the events of December 14-15, 2010, Gosar recapped the subsequent Fast and Furious investigation, vowed to continue to demand answers from the Justice Department, and said he would "look to the Hispanic Caucus to break their silence and to take up this issue affecting everyone in Mexico."

The speech also comes one day after one of the "straw buyers" - who purchased guns pretending they were for personal use but sold them to others who smuggled them into Mexico - was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 57 months in prison.  Jaime Avila, Jr. had purchased/re-sold one of the AK-47-style weapons found at the scene of the battle that killed Terry.
