    He prosecuted one of them.

    Does such propaganda as you posted make it thru unchallenged at the Sean Hannity forum?

Previously ATF had sought to indict Avila, but prosecutors refused to authorize it because they said there was insufficient evidence (the obvserved gun purchases were legal under Arizona law).

    You can believe what ever you want, your article says nothing about being stopped at the border like the Los Angeles Times reported. Besides January 15 was a Friday in 2010 and the holiday was celebrated Monday when the offices would be closed. That means they would have been notified on Friday when the offices "should" have been open, so what happened on that business day? Besides why would I believe cheap excuses from an author who's Obama's biggest shill? Try something from an independent source like the LA Times who is left wing by the way.

    Sometime in spring or early summer 2010 — the exact date is unknown — U.S. immigration officers reportedly stopped Avila at the Arizona border with the two semiautomatics and 30 other weapons. According to two sources close to a congressional investigation into Fast and Furious, the authorities checked with the ATF and were told to release him with the weapons because the ATF was still hoping to track the guns to cartel members.

    A blog shill for Obama is hardly a reliable source.

    You realize that the source for the LA Times claim was Chuck Grassley's office, right?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    There are worse sins -- many believe the GOP talking points, which have been debunked time and time again.

    Holder on Texas voter ID law: ‘We call those poll taxes’ | The Raw Story
    ... “As many of you know, yesterday was the first day in the trial of a case that the state of Texas filed against the Justice Department under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act seeking approval of it’s proposed voter ID law,” Holder told attendees at the 103rd convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). “After close review, the department found that this law would be harmful to minority voters and we rejected its implementation.”
    “Under the proposed law, concealed handgun licenses would be acceptable forms of photo ID, but student IDs would not,” the attorney general pointed out. “Many of those without IDs would have to travel great distances to get them. And some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them.”
    “We call those poll taxes,” Holder added, reportedly straying from his prepared remarks. ...
