Gun control

Holder Begs Court to Stop Document Release on Fast and Furious
Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.
--
In Fast and Furious, the ATF “walked” about 2,000 firearms into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels. That means through straw purchasers they allowed sales to happen and didn’t stop the guns from being trafficked even though they had the legal authority to do so and were fully capable of doing so.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican citizens–estimates put it around at least 300–were killed with these firearms.

  1. Gene,

    Below is something that I posted on the blog site known as "A MONTPELIER VIEW" which is, at least, tangentially related to today's post (I didn't feel like re-inventing the wheel).

    According to the: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, homicides per 100,000 inhabitants for :

    Mexico=22.7

    U.S.=4.8

    In other words Mexico’s Homicide Rate is 4.73X that of the United States. But wait, I thought that Mexico is supposed to be one giant “Gun Free Zone”. How can that be? Ok, maybe Eric Holder can shed some light on it. Anyway, the tyrannical and criminal elements of societies will [always] be armed.
