Sure looks like entrapment.
Force the gun dealers to break the law in order to create the situation of gun dealers selling to illegals.
Then the feds have the gun dealers over a barrell.
In addition to running a scam that the dealers are “selling” to the narco armies, the feds have a case to prosecute the gun dealers for breaking federal law.
What is really sick about this is that the top cop, holder is willing to ruin innocent American businessmen to push an agenda that violates the US Constitution that he swore to uphold.
This admin considers themselves to be above the law.
Luckily, at least one of those dealers followed up with an email enquiring (paraphrased), “Are you sure?” to BATF’s insistance that he continue the sales. In their reply, the answer remained in the affirmative. He saved that correspondence - or we would be reading right now of how it was all the fault of the particular dealers who participated.
Obviously, the Batfags’ recent singling out of dealers in the Mexico-bordering states to report multiple sales is an attempt to ammeliorate BATF responsibility in this matter.
(I assume you knew about that already, but the point should be made in each Gunwalker thread. I believe that this is petty revenge for Obama’s status as Gun Salesman of the Year for 3 years running. If the operations’ intended true outcome also bolsters the liberals’ designs on an uppity citizenry, who is Obama to look that gift horse in the mouth? Guns bad. Government good.)

I would say that most government agencies consider themselves above the law.
Let me provide an example; in New Mexico the State Constitution says:
Art II, Sec. 6. [Right to bear arms.]
No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.
Yet, in spite of this, ALL municipal and county courthouses I have seen (admittedly not exhaustive) prohibit weapons therein, despite BOTH sentences above both of which prohibit them from doing so.
Further, there is NMSA 30-7-2.4. (Unlawful carrying of a firearm on university premises; notice; penalty.) which violates the first clause of the cited portion of the State’s Constitution, passed by the State’s legislature (contrary to the Constitution of the State) and enforced by the police (also contrary).
So, there you have an instance of all three branches of a government ignoring the exact same portion of their governing Constitution in preference to their own whims: therefore, they see themselves as above the law.
