Oh boy, this could get interesting. There were multiple gun walking programs and Holder / Obama knew nothing about them?

Yeah, right ...

Dems Call for More Gun Control in Light of Operation Fast and Furious

By Katie Pavlich
6/30/2011

What’s the answer to failed government? More government!

In the June Issue of Townhall Magazine, I wrote Misfire: Obama’s Scandalous Secret Gun Control Agenda, about how Operation Fast and Furious would result in calls for more gun control and I questioned whether officials in the Obama Justice Department purposely allowed thousands of semi-automatic weapons to flow into the hands of dangerous drug cartels in order to meet President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder’s goal of re-instating the ban on assault rifles and other forms of harsh gun control.

During an Oversight Committee hearing on June 15, Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings stated the following: “No legitimate examination of this issue will be complete without analyzing our nation’s gun laws, which allow tens of thousands of assault weapons to flood into Mexico from the United States every year, including fifty caliber sniper rifles, multiple AK variants and scores of others. When Mexican President Calderon addressed Congress in May, he pleaded for us to stop fueling a full-scale drug war with military-grade assault rifles.”

The problem is, as Mr. Cummings failed to point out, many of these weapons were been provided directly to violent cartel members courtesy of the U.S. government, not because of “lax” gun control laws.

Today, democrats on the House Oversight Committee, led by Rep. Cummings, issued a report calling for more gun control in light of Operation Fast and Furious. Their solution to the Obama Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious scandal is to give the same officials who purposely broke U.S. federal law within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) overseen by the Justice Department, even more power and control over American gun rights, stomping on the Second Amendment to defend government incompetency rather than placing responsibility on Washington bureaucrats.

During the same hearing on June 15 we found out ATF Director Kenneth Melson watched a live video feed from his cushy Washington D.C. office of straw purchasers in Arizona, who he knew were working for Mexican drug cartels, buying mass amounts of weapons, but democrats like Cummings are blaming the Second Amendment for the lethal consequences of the operation....

Yes - it’s just a coincidence that this MO was employed on both ends of the Country *and* there was absolutely, positively, no involvement whatsoever, from a coordinating entity in authority that happens to have a gun controlling agenda. (eye roll)

There were several agencies involved in the operation. There is NO WAY that Holder and Obama weren’t in the loop and approving all of it. This is an impeachable offense and the talk show hosts are more interested in raising the debt ceiling or Casey Anthony.

Remember too, Obama was meddling in Honduran affairs at the same time.
