Operation Fast and Furious/Gun Walker was started so the Obama Regime could attack the second amendment, and make it harder on Legal American Citizens to own and carry guns. Background HERE.
So now that the s**t has hit the fan people are about to be indicted, a Border Guard is DEAD, and it could unravel the whole Obama Regime what are the democrats going to do? You got it, use the story of the Obama Regime ILLEGALLY SELLING GUNS to investigate if American gun Laws are to lax…lol
Dems to spin Fast & Furious probe into gun-control rally

After yesterday’s news of the deal between Senators Pat Leahy and Charles Grassley to get documents and testimony from ATF chief Kenneth Melson on Operation Fast and Furious, it seemed as though Democrats might finally take the scandal of the gunrunning fiasco seriously. Alas, Elijah Cummings and House Democrats appear uninterested in abuses of government power, incompetence, and potential cover-ups at AFT and the Department of Justice. In fact, they want to turn the probe into an argument for expanding government control of firearms:
The top Democrat on a House investigative committee is broadening an inquiry into a botched gun-tracing operation, called Operation Fast and Furious, to include a look at American gun laws.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the leading Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released a report early Thursday titled “Outgunned,” that details how Bureau for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents say gun laws need to be tightened for them to fight organized crime along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Why, yes! The right response for Congress to a fiasco where the ATF and DoJ refused to stop guns from flowing over the border is to give them more power to stop American citizens from buying guns in the first place! Certainly, the federal law-enforcement agencies have proven their worth in Operation Fast and Furious and should be given even more opportunities to intervene in the exercise of Second Amendment rights!
That’s the World According To Elijah Cummings, anyway.
Yep that’s a box of chocolates….
