Skip to comments.Will right questions be asked at today’s 'ATF Roundtable’?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will hold a roundtable discussion Thursday, April 26, to discuss firearms trace data from the Government of Mexico, an ATF Public Affairs Division press release advises.
The trace information discussed will cover firearms recovered by law enforcement and military officials at crime scenes in Mexico for calendar years 2007-2011 and submitted to ATF for tracing, the release states. This information will be available to the public on the ATF website following the roundtable.
ATF will not discuss any other firearms recoveries in Mexico which have not been submitted for tracing or any investigations, the statement qualifies.
While credentialed Authorized Journalists who have been spiking the Gunwalker story from Day One will be predominant among attendees, there will also be some honest brokers on the inside, and this correspondent has passed along some questions that I hesitate to reveal before the meeting takes place at 2:30 pm Eastern time, about 15 minutes from the time this column is being posted.
As this will be a pen-and-pad event only, with no recording devices allowed, we will, unfortunately, not be able to hear any sputtering if those questions are asked. What we will no doubt hear the loudest after the fact will be a parroting of talking points and responses to softball questions, all geared to make the case that the biggest problem Mexico faces in re arming cartels is the private ownership of guns in the U.S.

I’m sure they’ll be ready to confess their complicity in the Gunwalker debacle. If I were a responsible journalist there, the first words of every question I asked their lying spokesman would be, “Regarding your illegal Gunwalker operation.......”
Codrea weighs in. Ping.
They sure were by a young lady with a lot of brass. But the ATF only had bull crap for answers.
ATF Roundtable = Circle Jerk
Thanks for the ping.
