If you haven’t been following this, BATF came up with this great idea – to prove how easy it is to smuggle weapons into Mexico, and then use that “evidence” as a basis for increasing regulation of guns within the United States, the BATF began smuggling weapons into Mexico and selling them to Mexican drug gangs in order to “track” where they went. Operation Fast and Furious – your government at work.
The guns escaped from the control of the BATF and have now been used in a killing spree in Mexico. Controlling guns in the US because Mexico is out of control has been a consistent theme of the Obama Administration, especially Mr Holder. Maybe the wrong person was fired today.
