Wide Receiver ‘Good Samaritan’ clarifies role in OIG ‘gunwalking’ report
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 22 September, 2012 | David Codrea

The Office of Inspector General report on Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” released Wednesday included a significant portion of its findings discussing the Operation Wide Receiver gun trafficking investigation from the previous administration, including numerous references to “a Tucson-based FFL” acting as a “Good Samaritan informant” who had contacted ATF over a suspected straw purchaser and who then agreed to assist the Bureau in obtaining evidence. Regular readers of this column know that individual was Federal Firearms Licensee Mike Detty, the subject of numerous Gun Rights Examiner reports that have now been substantially corroborated by this week’s OIG release.

Responding to inquiries about his impressions of the report, Detty shared his candid observations with Gun Rights Examiner.

“I had one meeting with the OIG investigators,” Detty replied when asked what level of contact had been initiated with him for the purposes of the report. “They are the ones that gave all of my confidential materials to Laura Gwinn at DOJ. After that happened I told them to never contact me again.”

That recollection comports with a report filed in this column last January that the Inspector General shared that information over Detty’s objections.
