We know part of the answer was so that ATF management could treat Gunwalker crimes as personnel policy violations.
We know the ATF orchestrated the scheme to allow guns to be “walked” into Mexico. They have no authority to arrange and oversee that into a foreign country.
Like big-city mayors from two decades ago, Mexico wants to sue gun manufacturers to pretend they are dealing with a serious crime problem.
Over seven million rounds of sporting ammunition was reported to have been stolen in a daring robbery in Mexico.
The American public is still being subjected to disinformation by a media that is either hopelessly incompetent, deliberately misleading, or both.
As ‘Fast And Furious’ ambush news unfolded At Justice Dept. “Top men” were being informed to get a handle on things, to find out what happened, and to make decisions on what to do.
Mexican authorities recently stopped a shipment of 13,000 cartridges being smuggled into Mexico. Smuggling ammunition is fairly common. The cartels can get ammunition from several sources.

Fifteen people were murdered and an additional seven were injured. Gun control failed again and made things worse in “gun-free” Mexico.
When it comes to trade, gun owners and President Trump should be thinking bigly about the US Mexico and Canada trade deal. Excessive regulation of personal firearms needs reform.
Vox … refers to “developed nations” as the ultimate benchmark for demonstrating how barbaric America’s gun laws are when compared to the rest of the world.
Tellingly, the same “progressive” subversives complaining about how easy it is to send guns south across the border then turn around and demand the borders be open.
…the question remains why State did not pursue violations by DOJ – and who was involved in making (ordering) that outcome.
Mexican border-towns, which used to be regularly frequented by hoards of American tourists are now virtual ghost-towns and blatantly unsafe..
MRI is proud to announce that John Nagel, Pro-Shooter for Magnum Research, will be participating in the 3rd Annual Copa Aguila 2017 shooting match.
