    Yeah. The old chestnut "if you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns" is based on notion that they won't obey gun laws. Actually going out and arming the outlaws is beyond the pale.

    The following is a summary of articles appearing on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog and Gun Rights Examiner, reflecting original reporting on the developing “Project Gunwalker” story by Mike Vanderboegh and Michelle Malkin.

    *** ATF management was allowing potentially hundreds of semiautomatic firearms to be walked across the Mexican border in order to pad statistics used to further budget and power objectives.
    * Mexican authorities were kept in the dark, and protests that they should be informed were overridden, first by the Phoenix ATF office, and ultimately by higher-ups in Washington, DC.
    * A gun used in this operation was involved in a December 2010 incident in which a Border Patrol agent was killed.

    *** What is probably closer to the truth is: ATF management was allowing potentially hundreds of semiautomatic firearms to be walked across the Mexican border in order to pad statistics used to further budget and power objectives, and disarm the American people.

    I wonder if Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer had something to do with this?

    What was it someone said recently about how Libbos are all about Liberty and Freedom?
    Calling Democrats liberals is an insult to liberals.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    The director of the ATF resigning is insufficient. I want the agency abolished.
