After reading this article it is hard not to question the motivation of the author. It is not the first time I observed a decidedly derogatory slant on our 2nd amendment rights issued from this "publication" and I use that term loosely. How does the Gunwalker Scandal equate to even more laws on law abiding citizens?
Here is the Readers Digest version of what the Free Times press failed to tell you.
There are five key accusations against ATF and DOJ made by ATF whistle blowers and other sources within Fed Gov:
That they instructed U.S. gun dealers to proceed with questionable and illegal sales of firearms to suspected gunrunners.
That they allowed or even assisted in those guns crossing the U.S. border into Mexico to "boost the numbers" of American civilian market firearms seized in Mexico and thereby provide the justification for more firearm restrictions on American citizens and more power and money for ATF.
That they intentionally kept Mexican authorities in the dark about the operation, even over objections of their own agents.
That weapons that the ATF let "walk" to Mexico were involved in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, as well as at least hundreds of Mexican citizens.
That at least since the death of Brian Terry on 14 December, there has been a full-press cover-up of the facts behind what has come to be known as the "Gunwalker Scandal."
Do your homework people. google "a journalist's guide to project gunwalker" How would even one new law on the people stop the atrocities and utter disregard for the law displayed by the ATF?
