For all the psychobabble from the left about the weapon used by Democrat terrorist Omar Mateen, it’s funny how none of them ever mention the fact former Attorney General Eric Holder, at Barack Obama’s behest, allowed over 500 AR-15’s to be smuggled into Mexico.
That story is nearly five years old. Nobody in charge, namely Holder or Obama, has been held accountable to this day.

Its ridiculous those exploiting this tragedy are blaming the tool and not placing 100% of the blame on the person using the tool. What if he used a bomb? What would they focusing on?
Its just like the (ridiculous) knee-jerk reaction after the Boston Marathon bombing, when pressure-cookers were pulled from shelves.
What we have here is a group of mental midgets! (with a well-known agenda)
To help combat firearms trafficking into Mexico, ATF began Project Gunrunner as a pilot project in Laredo, Texas, in 2005 and expanded it as a national initiative in 2006. Project Gunrunner is also part of the Department’s broader Southwest Border Initiative, which seeks to reduce cross-border drug and firearms trafficking and the high level of violence associated with these activities on both sides of the border.
We found that ATF does not systematically exchange intelligence with its Mexican and some U.S. partner agencies. In addition, some ATF field agents reported that they do not find investigative leads provided to them by ATF’s Field Intelligence Groups to be timely and usable. We also determined that intelligence personnel in ATF’s Southwest border field divisions do not routinely share firearms trafficking intelligence with each other.
