Obama Tells Mexicans Half A Story On Guns Used In Crime

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- President Barack Obama was right when he told a Mexican audience Friday that many of the guns used in crime south of the border came from the United States…

And he should know since his administration allowed thousands of those firearms to walk during Operation Fast and Furious, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms observed.

“The Obama administration should accept full responsibility for illegally flooding Mexico with guns that are now being used by drug cartel gunmen,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “But he has deliberately told his audience half a story about how many of those guns made it into their country.”

The president told a crowd at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum that he will “continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people.”

“Mr. Obama talks a good game,” Gottlieb said, “but once again he may be hitting only two of 22 tries to score. If he were really interested in keeping guns out of the wrong hands, he would instruct the Justice Department to enforce existing laws.

“One thing to keep in perspective,” he continued, “is that all of these guns were purchased at retail and the gun traffickers passed background checks, and retailers were instructed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to allow the sales to go ahead.

“If there is a loophole in the current background check system,” Gottlieb noted, “it should be called the ‘administration loophole’ because they’re the ones responsible, not firearms dealers, gun shows or law-abiding U.S. citizens.

“The measures being proposed by the president will not prevent a single crime in Mexico and he knows it,” Gottlieb continued. “The president would have Mexico believe that the reason for their crime is our gun laws and the Second Amendment. It’s another blame game approach where Mr. Obama points fingers at everyone but himself and the horrid handling of a disastrous gun trafficking effort in which firearms retailers followed the law and his own people didn’t.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to [email protected].

@Choppedlow: I may disagree with you on some of your issues you mentioned but on this I am totally in agreement. It is sad that Obama blames us, especially odd considering the whole fast and furious debacle. But the thing you must realize, is that he is literally there pandering to future democratic voters. He knows they will cross the border in droves and that almost all of them will vote democrat when they do. Combine that with the corruption and you know as well as I this is only going to keep getting worse for the foreseeable future.

Hey, I’m about as liberal as a normal person can get. I’m pro choice, I’m all for gays getting ‘married’, and I’m even for pot being legal. OK, that said, WTF is Obama doing in Mexico blaming everything on us? If he is going to blame us for their gun problem, wouldn’t it be fare to blame them for our drug problem? Yah, taking drugs is a choice. But do you think our drug problem would be half of what it is if Mexico didn’t flood our streets with cheap and potent drugs? They have made the supply side so… Read more »

This administration is opening doors to moral and economical, destruction. What about reality frightens mr b.o. His ideas suck common sense completely out of the equation. Roll models are important to impressionable youth give them inappropriate leadership and watch as manhood disappears. Far as that goes we are already an endangered species because the gay sentiment is advertised as natural behavior when it is obvious that people imitate people that they admire. Mr B.O. Our president, is one form of madness that like the homosexual agenda is way out of control.

Everyone contact your lawmakers and insist that criminal charges be brought against Obama, Holder, and anyone else involved in “Fast & Furious.” This murder was allowed for one reason. To blame gun owners for our government’s breaking of the national and international laws. Demand that executive privilege not be allowed to be used for the administration to hide behind these murders.

Of course he did not admit that 3500 of those weapons came from the US Government, nor the operation before that one. Project Gunrunner. Project Gunrunner is a project of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) intended to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico, in an attempt to deprive the Mexican drug cartels of weapons.[1] The primary tactic of Project Gunrunner is interdiction of straw purchasers and unlicensed dealers to prevent legal guns from entering the black market; between 2005 and 2008, 650 such cases involving 1,400 offenders and 12,000 firearms were referred for prosecution.[2]… Read more »

We seem to have forgotten that the major point of the Bush41 1989 assault weapons ban was pressure from Mexico and the UK. They complained that the US market was the main source of guns to criminals and the IRA respectively. Same ol same ol.

You really don’t think that this administration is going to start telling the truth now do you? It never has and never will be honest.
