    just another gun control trap

    alright here goes another conspiracy theory
    i had the feeling for a long time before the exposure of "fast and furious" . i remember a few years ago, about the time the operation started (but before we knew about it). it was being reported that Mexican drug dealers were coming north to buy weapons. at the time i thought this was hogwash. first off, why would they, because they could buy better and cheaper from south America and other foreign countries. second, there were too many restrictions for them to buy in the USA.

    then the "fast and furious" story broke. i really believe the anti's and the BATF created this, to blame gun owners for this problem.

    Fast & Furious and Eric Holder
    This alert is forwarded at the request of our friends at Gun Owners of America. See the actions to take at the end of the alert.

    The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee conducted another hearing this week on Fast and Furious -- the operation spearheaded by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) which knowingly put thousands of guns into criminals' hands.

    Tuesday's hearing exposed the anti-gun animus of several people within the Obama Administration, and their answers continued to beg the question:
    Was Operation Fast and Furious all about drumming up more support for gun control?

    Gun Owners of America met with three persons from the House committee prior to the hearing and brought up a hard-and-fast link between the White House and "Fast and Furious." Committee members were encouraged to pursue a line of questioning that would publicly expose this connection.

    We were pleased to see that Representatives did just that.

    Dear:

    The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee conducted another hearing on Fast and Furious -- the operation spearheaded by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) which knowingly put thousands of guns into criminals' hands.

    The July 26 hearing exposed the anti-gun animus of several people within the Obama Administration, and their answers continued to beg the question: Was Operation Fast and Furious all about drumming up more support for gun control?

    Three of the key revelations during the Oversight hearing were:

    1. The White House WAS BEING BRIEFED by Fast and Furious manager Bill Newell. In fact, the "smoking gun" email establishing the clandestine link between ATF Agent Newell and the White House begins with Newell saying: "You didn't get this from me."

    2. ATF agents DID KNOW that "Fast and Furious" guns were going to Mexico. During much of the hearing, ATF Agent Newell denied this, but intense questioning by Pennsylvania Republican Patrick Meehan revealed Newell's lie. The fact is, Newell and others DID KNOW that Mexican cartel bosses were expecting to get illegal firearms funneled into Mexico.

    3. Another revelation from the July 26 hearing is that the ATF was not the only organization involved in Fast and Furious. Tuesday's hearing confirmed that DEA, IRS and ICE were all involved. In other words, Fast and Furious was a giant operation being run out of the Justice Department. And that means that all roads are starting to point to Attorney General Eric Holder.

    As stated by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa this month: "How is it that the Number Two, Three, Four at Justice all knew about this Program but the Number One [Attorney General Eric Holder] didn't? Is it because he said 'don't tell me'? Is it because they knew what they were doing was wrong and they were protecting their boss? Or is it just that Eric Holder was so disconnected ..."

    Either Holder is lying about the fact he didn't know early on about Fast and Furious or he is inept. Either way, Eric Holder needs to step down.

    Please join me in calling for Eric Holder's resignation.

    Sincerely,
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    IIRC it was Nancy Pelosi that stated the Dems weren't pushing for an "Assault Weapons" ban bill yet because they had "Other Things" in the works...........

    Any anti-gun legislation is DOA. Several anti-gun bills have been introduced. None got out of committee. Even that pos pelosi knows that. More than half of the House and 60 Senators are rated A or A+ by the NRA.

    I remember that comment being made. I think it was a couple of years ago when the whole ammo shortage/price gouging began.
    It appears we now know what was in the works. I hope some very highly placed public servants go unemployed over this deal.
