There we go again, trampling all over the second amendment rights for every American to possess a firearm legally. They may be criminals, but 75% of even criminals are legally Americans.

Excellent idea, the first of a number of gun regulations and reforms which NEED to take place, the NRA be damned.

Dumbass, Fast n' Furious was ABOUT DETECTING ILLEGAL GUN TRAFFICKING.

Sure, it was bungled, but in case you didn't notice, the federal law has not yet been PASSED.

And in this country, you can't convict someone of a crime for something which happened BEFORE a law was passed against it.

Duh!

So should the ATF and Justice Department.

Oh how we forget smuggling arms into Mexico so Mexican drug cartels can use them for crimes across the border.

False claim. ATF lost control of a gun TRACING operation, one of several run in the last couple of Presidencies in an effort to track down straw purchases in American border states.

Of course, they deserve condemnation for their failures, but getting arms to Mexican drug gangs was not the PURPOSE of the operations.

Now you got it. We need a new law saying it is REALLY, REALLY illegal to use a gun to kill someone. Psychos and gang bangers need to know they will get in SERIOUS trouble if they continue.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

And we have never been lied to before either.

"I am not a crook"

or

"I did not have sex with that woman."

or

"Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction and ties to Al Qaeda."

Or

"Read my lips, no new taxes."

Shall we keep going?

FLASH: THE OBAMA CODE HAS BEEN BROKEN…………with virtually all categories of our economy, jobs, wars, education and unemployment, many ask How Did Obama Win, When will he lead, and why does he keep campaigning? The answer is hidden in the last part of the questions, the campaigning.

Low information voters despite what is staring them in the face do not associate all of the harm Obama is doing, basically with all his flying around and still campaigning he is telling the children, he is opposed to all the bad things even though he is responsible for them. Sequester finally helped break the code, showing Obama, with the help of the MSM as usual, had many thinking the sequester was the republicans ploy and idea, when in reality it was he and his staffs idea.

The children are convinced the unemployment is not Obama’s fault, even though he has cost us 8.9 million jobs and because he has promised to focus and pivot to jobs before and after each vacation, but never has.

It is easy to fool the peasants as many kings found out, and with the educational levels falling in America it has become easier to fool more of the people more of the time.

Um, did anyone in the ATF say any of those things, or are any of them relevant to my point about the ATF's failures in regard to gun-tracing programs?

Perhaps you could present evidence that someone was "conspiring," for some unknown reason, to get guns TO those drug gangs instead of interdicting them.

I'll wait...:)
