House Democrats Urge President to End Stonewalling on Gunrunner Scandal
FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- 31 U.S. House members — all Democrats — wrote to President Barack Obama, urging him to end Administration stonewalling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' “Project Gunrunner,” and the “Fast and Furious” program under which border state dealers were encouraged to sell thousands of guns to suspicious buyers.
In the letter, spearheaded by Rep. Jason Altmire, D-Pa., the lawmakers called the investigative tactics “extremely troubling” and found the Justice Department's failure to provide information to congressional investigators “equally troubling.”
Saying that Americans deserve “prompt and complete answers,” the letter concluded with a call for the administration to help “get to the bottom of this serious allegation of federal law enforcement misconduct.”
