I haven't seen it discussed (which kinda disturbs me), so here goes.
Please google "operation gun runner". There are too many developments to try and explain it in a post. It is still unravelling and being exposed. In a nutshell, the ATF purposly sold weapons in border states and stood aside while they were carted to Mexico. This was supposedly done so tracking them to drug lords would be easy. It has since been exposed as a plot to attack the 2nd Amendment. The ATF seems to be crumbling from the top down (might be a good thing).
It also appears that Obama was in on it from the start.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Vaq...

I did see one posting about it, and have been trying to follow myself. I believe it was ISD that said he actually KNEW one of the gun store owners that the BATF told to allow the guns to be sold. One of the scary things is that I thought it was only a few operations, now I'm hearing that there were over 4500 operations under the Gun Runner umbrella. Another scary thing, if you read the Govement Accounting Agency report, we sell mexico TONS of military weapons. It is well know that there is widespread corruption in the goverment of mexico... How many of our M-16's and 203's do you think the cartels have now? And then the administration abd esp Eric Holden refuse to allow the commities investigating to see all the reports. Isn't that obstruction of justice? Once again showing how the individuals of the goverment feel that they don't have to abide the laws they create.

Yeah, there should be some major public outrage about this. The DOJ has been trying to tie America's "loose" gun laws on the violence in Mexico and the ATF tried this crap. IMO, which I believe is the NRAs and anyone with open eyes, the DOJ tried to self fulfill their prophecy and provide fuel for an anti-gun sentiment to make a grab easier. Then, when it failed, they tried to cover it up and are constantly back-pedaling on this. The NRA sent me a petition to call for the resignation of A.G. Eric Holder, which I gladly signed and returned.
Get ready, y'all. The shit storm's coming. I always knew that, once they felt we are comfortable on the plantation, that their last move will be to round up our guns. That will be their last move before outright declaring their victory and revealing their true intentions. It will be their "coming out" party, so to speak.
