Trial testimony transcripts and a press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement show an El Paso gun dealer was cooperating with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in its surveillance of suspected gun traffickers as part of a joint eight-month operation between ICE and ATF, documents received and being analyzed this week by Gun Rights Examiner reveal. These materials, received from a source close to the case of FBI agent John Shipley, an active collector convicted of dealing in firearms without a license, further reveal evidence of guns being smuggled to Mexico following ATF-monitored activities by suspects under extended surveillance.
In yesterdays report, this column walked through two documents illustrating how a former deputy Shipley sold a Barrett rifle to, Armando Rodriguez, reportedly placed it on consignment with a Federal Firearms Licensee, how the gun was sold and physically transferred to then-suspected trafficker Jonatan Lopez-Gutierrez, who had a Juarez, CH, address on his driver license, and how the money and proof of delivery, consisting of a photocopy of the buyers license and a handwritten acknowledgment of receipt, were then given to the seller where they were later recovered in a search of his home.
Todays report, consisting of documents identified as #3, #4 and #5, will lay out the evidence that the dealer was cooperating with ATF in identifying and reporting on suspects being watched, establishing that it was well within the capability and power of agents to arrest the traffickers and intercept the gun Shipley sold before it was smuggled into Mexico, something that was later exploited with great effect by the prosecution to condemn the defendant in the eyes of the jury. For reference, those documents have been posted in this columnists Scribd account.

Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
Codrea as promised.
The Chicago Way writ large across Amerika ... and some still want Barry to have four more years to do his evil.
So this guy was working with ATF and they locked him up for it?
Damn, just damn.
Create the crime, then prosecute who you want to. A nice little setup for tyranny.>>>>>>>>>>
Its even worse than that. You prosecute when the illegal gun owner refuses to join Obama’s Brown shirt guerrilla “reconquista” movement, who later will be ordered to make war on any red state that is conservative.
This is how guerrilla movements are created and armed, just the way Holder and Obama are going about it, like the fascists they truly are.
In fact, what Obama and Holder are doing is arming revolutionaries to make future war on the people of the United States.It is treason.
