One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious.
A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, off book, Judicial Watchs law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.
The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a guns ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violationsfor selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automaticbut no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual. Instead, ATF leaders went out of their way to keep the information under the radar and ensure that the gun owners identity was kept quiet, according to law enforcement sources involved with the case. Agents were told, in the process of taking the fully auto, not to anger the seller to prevent him from going public, a veteran law enforcement official told Judicial Watch.

btt to see how this ends
The irony - and watch the press make excuses...
This makes BATF complicit in the murder of French citizens.
Or call for more laws.
I’ll ask it first:
Fast & Furious?
The complicity in murder goes all the way to the top. 0bama paved the way for jihadists to murder Frenchmen. 0bama has blood on his hands.
They won’t say a single word.
Dude, it’s right there in the first sentence.
My thought as well!
I don’t know but it would not surprise me if the Mexican drug cartels and ISIS have all sorts of weapon trade going on between them. Gee, thanks Obama administration for trying to restrict law-abiding citizens from getting guns while helping the worst criminals get guns.
duh! (you’re right)
No doubt about it.
To Chapo and Isis.
This is GIFT-WRAPPED....!!
