Betrayal: Was the Government's “Fast and Furious” operation a secret campaign for more U.S. gun-control?
100's of Mexican citizens dead, US Boarder Patrol Agents Dead, millions in collateral damage and our President knew nothing…?

Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- From the moment I learned about the BATFE's “Operation Fast and Furious,” also called “Project Gun Walker,” to flood Mexico's drug cartels with guns from U.S. gun stores, my gut told me that it was the American gun owner who was the primary target of the operation.
In an environment where the American people no longer want gun control, it appeared that we were being “set up” by our own government to have gun-control crammed down our throats.
And the more that is revealed about Fast And Furious, the more that gut feeling has proven to be correct. As you will see, others have the same belief.
From the story in the The Washington Examiner: http://tinyurl.com/3z2tagg:
“The supervisor of Operation Fast and Furious was ‘jovial, if not, not giddy but just delighted about' walked guns showing up at crime scenes in Mexico according to an ATF agent.”
Ask yourself, why would a supervisor be so happy that guns sold in America and smuggled into Mexico with the BATFE's help showed up at crimes scenes in Mexico?
We are talking about people being murdered…
Only one possible reason comes to mind: the operation's true purpose was being realized and Mexico would soon be pointing the finger at American gun stores and yelling that such gun stores were intentionally selling guns into Mexico.
It was almost perfect. And of course, the U.S. Government “would have no choice” but to implement more gun control (registering private gun sales, banning “assault weapons” and higher-capacity magazines, tracking multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles, etc.) in response to the “irresponsible sales of guns by American gun stores.”
The Mexican Government had no idea that it was the U.S. Government that was secretly seeing that those guns were sold to Mexican cartels over the objections of the gun stores that would never have made those high-volume sales otherwise.
President Obama told Sarah and Jim Brady a few months ago that there was gun control in the works “under the radar.” That statement made it inadvertently into the press. Ooops – looks like the radar was capable of scanning lower than the President thought.
Now Blood is dripping off of the Government's fingers.
In other stories, you see how some anti-gun Democrats were trying to capitalize on Operation Fast and Furious to get their gun control agenda passed. Senator Feinstein is still in the “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” mode, demanding instead that gun owners pay the price she wants us to pay no matter what.
However, I think that the revelations and Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious will mean that gun control, which has not been popular in Congress for years, is now even further from becoming reality any time soon.
Sarah, put that in your pipe and smoke it.
