Fast and Furious gun found at Mexican crime scene (Beauty Queen Maria Gamez)
cbs ^ | December 18, 2012, 12:38 PM | Sharyl Attkinsson

Another weapon from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agency's controversial Operation Fast and Furious was recently recovered at a Mexican crime scene, CBS News has learned. Congressional investigators say the crime scene was likely where a recent shootout took place between reported Sinaloa drug cartel members and the Mexican military, in which Sinaloa beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez and four others were killed.

According to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the Justice Department did not notify Congress of the Fast and Furious firearm recovery in November, even though Grassley has requested an accounting of weapons that surface from the case.

No doubt the administration knew of this weapon before the election and decided to keep it quiet until they had more flexibility.

Where is the media, Obama & Holder’s call for gun control on Fast and Furious? Mexico has strict gun control laws.

This was an act by Obama and Holder to undermine the stability of the Mexican government by arming drug cartels. They also attempted to undermine the 2nd Amendment rights of U.S. citizens by jacking up illegal sales of guns.

Rush covered this story during the last hour. Maybe it will get legs. He also cited a report that Obama BFFs Vlad Putin and Hugo Chavez have agreed to start a manufacturing facility for AK-47s in Venezuela. Doe this mean AKs will be cool again?

(from the article) ~ : “According to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the Justice Department did not notify Congress of the Fast and Furious firearm recovery in November, even though Grassley has requested an accounting of weapons that surface from the case.”

and we are surprized that there has been NO cooperation.. Why ?
Considering “ Fast and Furious “ , the “ Just-Us “ dept. has been less than cooperative .
Nine people resign from the justice Dept. ( I know ~ an oxymoron) and justice is satisfied ? Not Hardly !!
Criminal conspiracy and coercion a few steps from the Communist-in-Chief , prosecutorial misconduct and nothing else .. ?
.. and they keep their pensions ?
That’s justice ? I think NOT !
Benghazi is just “ Fast and Furious Part Deux “ .. and still no answers ..
Heads should roll !!

We have Justice denying info to Congress, we have contempt citations issued, and we have an illegal alien sexual offender's presence being kept quiet until after the election.

All this from the most open administration in history

Barry deliberately pumps "assault rifles" into Mexico resulting in 100's of deaths, doubtless including school-age children, all to create a false pretext for cutting back 2A gun rights. Then he claims executive privilege which can only apply to his WH communications w/Holder implicating himself and we get from the MSM.

It only took two years to get any answers about “Fast and Furious “ ,.. and then we only got resignations ?

Arming foreign country terrorists in Mexico and Lybia by our administration ~ truely an international embarassment !
And no prosecution ?
The adminsitration should be brought up on RICO charges !

And now it looks that the Obama Regime is making a vast and very fast effort to force a vast curtailment of the on-line weapons business with many businesses pulling their sales stock. Read later comments for some of the businesses which have folded under pressure:

Can anyone explain why the GOP house appropriates one thin dime to DOJ until they begin to show some freakin’ respect to congress?
They are in open contempt, and the GOP does absolutely nothing.

Part of the Justice Department guns-for-criminals program. But God forbid an American citizen should own an “assault rifle”.

Good afternoon.

This was an act by Obama and Holder to undermine the stability of the Mexican government by arming drug cartels. .

According to the Geneva Convention of 1949, and the Protocols, that is an "act" of war.

They also attempted to undermine the 2nd Amendment rights of U.S. citizens by jacking up illegal sales of guns .

And none dared call it treason.

We are in for a bumpy ride...

During Fast and Furious, ATF allowed more than 2,000 weapons, including giant .50-caliber guns, to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and other criminals. Other so-called "gunwalking" operations by ATF let hundreds more guns hit the street.

A trace report shows the rifle was purchased by Uriel Patino, the Fast and Furious suspect who allegedly bought more than 700 weapons while under ATF's watch.

So, over two thousand + hundreds.

This one guy bought more than seven hundred. so how many "hundreds" plus the original "over two thousand"??

Are we talking several thousand "hundred" more?

"to undermine the stability of the Mexican government"

I have long suspected this as a motive & posted such. To my knowledge, you are the first freeper to agree with me.

The Obama Adm always aims to kill as many birds with one stone as possible.

Thansk, but I believe I read that in an article somewhere yesterday. I hadn’t thought of it intentionally being done, but that’s what was being done in actuality.

Here’s part of my referenced source about the implied attack on the 2nd Amendment:

“Please, by all means, let’s have a discussion about how the Second Amendment can be used in a responsible way from a man who ran a gun candy store for Mexican drug lords.

The only thing that we need more than a serious discussion about race from the New Black Panther Party’s advocate who called us a “Nation of Cowards”, is for some “hard questions” about the right to bear arms from a man who killed thousands as a ploy to sabotage that right.”

From: Eric “Mexican Drug Guns” Holder Wants to Discuss How to Ban Guns in a Responsible Way - http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/eric-mexican-drug-guns-holder-wants-to-discuss-how-to-ban-guns-in-a-responsible-way/

I don’t remember the source for the mentioned undermining of the Mexican government. I think we can safely expect that arming Mexican drug gangs with a large number of weapons would serve to de-stabilize the government of Mexico.
