I can remember a few years ago a certain Medical Examiner at a large press conference describing the fatalities caused by a certain "long gun".....


Of course long guns can cause fatalities.

But check out the statistics. Handguns are responsible for far more deaths and injuries in the US.
Ever hear of an assault handgun bill?
They aren't worried about peons being shot. They are worried about their own hides.

This- they're worried about our ability to defend ourselves against our government, which has turned on its own people.

A democratic nation? Trump is certainly not the answer, nor is Hillary.

Voltaire:“’All I know,’ said Candide, ‘is that we must cultivate our garden.’ – ‘You are right,’ said Pangloss, ‘for when man was placed in the garden of Eden, he was put there ut operaretur eum, so that he might work: which proves that man was not born for the rest.’ – ‘Let us set to work and stop proving things,’ said Martin, ‘for that is the only way to make life bearable.’ (Chapter 30, p. 93)

Yeah...your right. That and our government illegally selling guns to Mexican, drug running criminals in hopes to subvert the Constitution of the United States of America because they support a dictatorship, socialism and in Obama's case...radical Islam.

But yeah...I guess it is just our little guns we care about

There was an operation in place during GW's administration but it did not include the straw purchase. That was all Obama's administration. I wondered why Holder and company tried to blame Bush when all this happened.


Yep.



After Operation Wide Receiver was ended, several attorneys at the Phoenix USAO who reviewed the Wide Receiver cases for prosecution found the cases had been so poorly managed that they were reluctant to bring any of them to trial.[1]


en.wikipedia.org...

It was ended.

And the very name comes from the current administration from the MOVIE.

I say Obama and co should be impeached, and criminal files charged.

Willfully subverting the law, and the US constitution for politician 'gain' with countless blood on their hands.

FAF goes ALL the way to the top.

I missed the part in the article where this statement was substantiated:


But internal documents later revealed the real goal was to gin up a crisis requiring a crackdown on guns in America.


Clearly that is the most serious allegation made by a mile and yet, that's the only line about it?

Now we know why Obama is all up on trangenders in shower rooms. This takes the focus off of him and it divides the nation more

Having reviewed these documents, Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has released a memo summarizing what they show. Chaffetz states:




More than previously understood, the documents show the lengths to which senior Department officials went to keep information from Congress. Further, the documents reveal how senior Justice Department officials—including Attorney General Eric Holder—intensely followed and managed an effort to carefully limit and obstruct the information produced to Congress. (Emphasis added)

You can read some of them here.

I read about twenty out of the 20,000.

I like this comment.



If you don't think this is fun, you're in the wrong line of work— period! This is the pinnacle of domestic U.S. law enforcement techniques. After this the toolbox is empty. Maybe the Maricopa County Jail is hiring detention officers and you can get paid $30,000 (instead of $100,000) to serve lunch to inmates all day. 5

Have at it people.

Thanks for the links.
So far I have learned that ATF staffers answered Congressional queries as to whether they ever urged the FFL dealers involved to break the law.
They answered 'no'.
The dealers are mentioned in emails by the ATF were very hesitant to make the deals and repeatedly asked ATF agents if they were sure what they were doing was right.
People need to realize that FFL holders exist at the ATF's discretion. Agents can and do break down doors of dealers, take all of their inventory and keep it. No laws broken by the dealer, and this is what happens.
When the ATF comes knocking and says 'Here is what you are going to do' you do it.

CBS News confirmed this in 2011.
CBS News

Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation "Fast and Furious" to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.

Yes, that was nearly 5 years ago.
The ATF/DOJ/ Obama Administration was specifically interested in long guns.

That would be because people do not trust him nor his administration. How many lies and scandals do we need to show this administration cannot be trusted. When an operation run by this administration is designed to covertly undermine the Constitution in order to restrict weapons there is a problem. When this administration subverts FOIA laws, refuses to comply with court orders and obstruct investigations there is a problem. When US Border patrol agents and 20 other people are murdered by this failed program instead of dealing with it they play politics and try to obstruct.

You are right though. Obamas actions have been a boon for gun sales. That gives me some comfort knowing there are people who see his policies for what they are and have more interest in protecting the Constitution than Obama does.

Now we know why Obama invoked executive privilege to try and prevent these communications from becoming public (and in my opinion he should be impeached / charged). It also explains why the replacement for Holder was someone close to his ideology / political background.

How is this not the biggest news story of the century?
Running an illegal gun operation to swing publuc opinion against the Second Amendment is an attempt subvert the US Constitution, imo.



Isn't attempting to subvert or subverting the Constitution a treasonable offence?

Cheers - Dave
