BATFE Wanted Fast and Furious to Justify Gun Control

by NRA-ILA
[L&E added]

From the first moment that the American people became aware that senior BATFE officials ordered agents in the field to allow guns sold in the U.S. to be smuggled on an all-but-certain path to Mexico’s vicious drug cartels, many of us have wondered “why.”

What possible legitimate purpose could be fulfilled by allowing a large number of guns—over 2,000, by some estimates—to disappear across our southwestern border without the Mexican government’s knowledge?

There has been only one logical answer possible. Someone within the BATFE or higher in the Department of Justice wanted the smuggled guns to be recovered at crime scenes in Mexico, and traced to sources within the U.S., so that the Obama Administration could claim a need for one or another gun control measure being pushed by anti-gun groups. Someone who values gun control more than the lives of innocent people killed by cartel operatives armed with the BATFE’s “walked” guns. Someone who believes, as one BATFE official put it, that “to make an omelet, you have to break some eggs.” Continue reading »

Obama says 90% of recovered crime guns in Mexico come from the States. We call bull$#!%.

[Note: Yes, this is an “American thing” but, just as the Yanks got all worried that the LGR would encourage gun grabbers south of the border to float similar ballons down there (it did), so should we Canadians keep an eye on underhanded tactics in the States that may one day work their way up here.  It happens a lot more than you might think. -D]

There’s no arguing that a buttload of handguns, rifles and other guns are purchased in the U.S. and end up in the hands of Mexican criminals each year. It’s not all that hard to buy them legally in Texas or other border states and to smuggle them south — just like it’s not all that hard to smuggle thousands of tons of dope north across the same border every year.

But is it true, as Obama keeps chirping, that “more than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States?” Not God damned likely; even his own government’s statistics don’t actually support that line of bull. Continue reading »

“Fast And Furious” Just Might Be President Obama’s Watergate

by Frank Miniter
Forbes Magazine

Why a gunrunning scandal codenamed “Fast and Furious,” a program run secretly by the U.S. government that sent thousands of firearms over an international border and directly into the hands of criminals, hasn’t been pursued by an army of reporters all trying to be the next Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein is a story in itself.

But the state of modern journalism aside, this scandal is so inflammatory few realize that official records show the current director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), B. Todd Jones — yes the individual the Obama administration brought in to replace ATF Director Kenneth Melson Aug. 30 in an effort to deflect congressional criticism — also has questions to answer about his involvement in this gunrunning scandal.

Let’s be clear–the only thing ‘botched’ in ‘Project Gunwalker’ was the cover-up

by Kurt Hofmann
St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner

National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea pointed out early this month that every time the “Project Gunwalker” atrocity is described as a “botched gun sting,” a lie is being disseminated.  The lie is the notion that there was ever the intention of mounting any kind of “sting” to “botch.”  There was not.  There could not have been.  No effort was made to track the guns past the border (or, very often, even to the border).  When field agents tried to track them any farther than a few blocks from the gun shops, they were ordered to stand down their surveillance.  Nor is it the case that the plan was for Mexican authorities to be tipped about what was going on, so they could perform the surveillance.

Obfuscation: Dems Push Gun Control To Hide ‘Gunwalker’ Scandal

They choose a pivotal moment in the Gunwalker investigation to announce a gun-control bill.

by Bob Owens
Pajamas Media

A handful of Democratic lawmakers in Congress and a fish cop held a press conference Friday to announce a new gun control proposal, the “Stop Gun Trafficking and Strengthen Law Enforcement Act.” The proposed law has no chance of passing, and seems orchestrated as a Democratic response meant to draw attention away from the still-developing “Gunwalker” scandal: Continue reading »
