By now, hopefully everyone who reads and frequents this site is at least nominally aware of the Fast and Furious / Gunwalker/ Gunrunner / Castaway / Wide Receiver / Grenadewalker / Direct Commercial Sales Program scandals, and how the United States Government was forcing FFLs along the southern border to knowingly execute illegitimate firearm sales to illegal immigrants and known cartel gun runners, which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican nationals and [...]
Been unable to keep up with the slow-motion train wreck that is the "Gunwalker" Scandal?
Good news – Rhino and Rats has put together a comprehensive background, vocabulary, and timeline regarding the fiasco, which puts pretty much everything you need to know in one place.
In a just world, an unmitigated disaster of this magnitude – including the murders of countless Mexican nationals and at least four American citizens – would have brought [...]
No, The Big One (whatever that means in your stretch of the woods) has not unleashed its fury.
Today is pretty much the last day you can put in an order for Sean Sorrentino’s awesome Gunwalker T-Shirts, so if you do not push that "buy" button by 1600 tomorrow, you are pretty much out of luck.
I almost wish I had enough spare funds / time / entrepreneurial spirit to buy up a [...]
I am a bit late on writing about this (Better Half was headed out of the country way-too-early this morning, so I had better things to do than blog yesterday), but it is just too good to pass up.
Over the weekend, the news leaked out that Our Glorious President was considering finally following through on those promises of enhanced "gun control" he made back during his election campaign:
The changes will include:
… if I were them. But if I were them, I never would have partaken in an operation that resulted in thousands of untrackable firearms being smuggled across the border into Mexico with full governmental approval, and I would thus never have been an accessory-before-the-fact to countless murders in both countries, and would not have the Mexican government calling for my extradition and trial:
While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send [...]
I fully admit to being somewhat negligent in my tracking of the series of illegal and illicit gun trafficking incidents perpetrated by the BATFE (otherwise known as "Gunwalker", "Gunrunner", or "Operation Fast and Furious" (of all the idiotic names they could have chosen…)); however, other folks have not been so behind the curve: Traction Control provides a great recap, Of Arms and the Law has some more information, and, oh look, gunwalked firearms are showing [...]
As you can tell by its omission from this weblog, I have been largely ignoring the burglary/shoot-out at the Chula Vista Apple Store that transpired earlier this week… sure, I used to live about two miles from there, and I walked past that particular store more times than I can count while strolling through the mall (crazy outdoor-style place, which is actually rather common in Kalifornistan), but the story was pretty simple so I did [...]
Now that the Project Gunrunner / Gunwalker scandal has hit the front page of Fox News, along with an ongoing investigation by CBS News, a thought occurred to me last night: where are the “gun control” advocates in this whole mess?
For years now, the anti-rights cultists have been trying to pin the myth that “90% of guns recovered in Mexico came from America” on law-abiding American citizens, despite the reams of evidence disproving that [...]
Speaking of the BATFE, it would seem as though the disastrous plan to allow over 2,500 firearms to traipse across the border into Mexico was called “Operation Fast and Furious”.
Coming from the military, I understand that operation names are largely nonsensical and laughable… but you would think someone in the BATFE would have enough intelligence to realize that naming that kind of operation after that kind of movie (even if it was unintentional) is [...]
For somewhere over two years now, anti-rights cultists have been trying to club us over the head with the myth that “90% of the firearms recovered from Mexican crimes originated in America”. Obviously, this claim is not true, but the hoplophobes in question continue to parrot the party line like the broken records they so frequently resemble.
The unfortunate truth is that a non-zero number of firearms recovered from Mexican crime scenes do come [...]
