Time for Daylight: U.S. Weapons Reaching Cartel Hands a Huge Scandal
“Gunwalker” has led to congressional inquiries and has inspired National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre to call for Attorney General Holder’s resignation: "When does it stop being law enforcement and start being a criminal enterprise? Innocent people are dying. It makes no sense at all."
While Holder and Obama have been pushing the narrative that gun control is the solution to Mexican violence -- and the ATF was ensuring the delivery of weapons to drug dealers to build a case for gun control -- the federal government sold $177 million of weaponry to Mexico, including $20 million for small arms.
Any reasonable American now has to wonder if the legal weapons shipped by our government -- and the illegal weapons shipped with government knowledge -- will be used to kill American civilians and to prop up narco-terrorist gangs threatening our southern border.
The plan for a long gun registry is still one of the president’s goals, even as he creates the problem for which he proposes the solution. A virulent anti-gun radical since his days with the Joyce Foundation, Obama has previously stooped to despicable levels in order to pursue his gun control agenda. He now wants to use the bully pulpit of his office to play both arsonist and firefighter, and is willing to watch northern Mexico and the American southwest burn in order to restrict a constitutional right he has always abhorred.
