Can anyone tell me who the President of the USA and who his AG was? The United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran a series of "gunwalking" sting operations between 2006 and 2011 ATF gunwalking scandal /Operation Wide Reciever/Operation Gunrunner/Fast and ATF gunwalking scandal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATF_gunwalking_s...

Understood why there are NO crime scene photos. see TOSH Plumlee for photos
The Government is keeping the crime silent because they feared the rifle used may have been a "Fast and Furious" rifle. Can you imagine if the rifle used by Adam Lanza was one provided by the Obama Administration?
Notice the replacement school for Sandy Hook students is protected by armed guards, like the NRA suggested.
Signs don't stop a criminal or mentally deranged person. Schools need secure facilities and some defensive weapons.
As the later DOJ OIG Report documented, under Wide Receiver coordination of ATF Tucson with the ATF Mexico City Office (MCO) and with Mexican law enforcement had been haphazard. Discussions of getting tracking devices from Raytheon were not followed up. ATF field agents and the cooperating gun dealer had been told by ATF supervisors that the guns were being interdicted before they could reach Mexico, but only 64 of the 474 guns had actually been seized. The kingpin sought by walking the guns, Israel Egurrola-Leon, turned out to be the target of a larger drug case Operation Iron River run by OCDETF. After Operation Wide Receiver was ended, several attorneys at the Phoenix USAO who reviewed the Wide Receiver cases for prosecution found the cases had been so poorly managed that they were reluctant to bring any of them to trial.[1]

At the time, under the Bush administration Department of Justice (DOJ), no arrests or indictments were made. After President Barack Obama took office in 2009, the DOJ reviewed Wide Receiver and found that guns had been allowed into the hands of suspected gun traffickers. Indictments began in 2010, over three years after Wide Receiver concluded. As of October 4, 2011 (2011 -10-04)[update], nine people had been charged with making false statements in acquisition of firearms and illicit transfer, shipment or delivery of firearms.[23

Feds Call Meeting with Journalist Who Reported Human Remains and Cartel Weapon Build up with U.S. Ties
Tim King Salem-News.com
Salem-News.com 's Tosh Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot, believes he may have opened a door to an international weapons smuggling operation.

Our Photojournalist, Robert 'Tosh' Plumlee, has been carefully documenting evidence that while not conclusive, demonstrates that a massive cover up is taking place to shield an international weapons sales program. Although this is not conclusive, a preponderance, of evidence accumulated over a three year investigation, strongly indicates international arms merchants are working the borders of northern Mexico.

There are many bizarre events taking place simultaenously that cause Tosh and other journalists following the cartel wars to believe there is a repeat pattern at play. It isn't good. The more Plumlee learns about weapons smuggling and existing supplies of arms already in Mexico, the more Tosh believes he is beginning to see the fingerprints of a ' secret CIA' mission -- a CIA black ops - it would make sense, knowing the CIA's past track record, that a major smuggling operation would be the design of this federal agency. Friday will be a very interesting day for Tosh and the rest of the nation.

Police find no evidence Connecticut gunman was on medication
Published December 18, 2012
FoxNews.com
Dec. 16, 2012: The car driven by Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is towed from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.(Reuters)
While Newtown buried two more young victims Tuesday in the shooting massacre, authorities said they found no evidence the gunman who killed 27 people was being medicated for mental illness.
Investigators searching the Connecticut home gunman Adam Lanza shared with his mother, Nancy Lanza, seized cellphones, computers and computer games, but found nothing at the residence to indicate he was taking medication, Hearst Connecticut Newspapers reported.

He WAS homeschooled, by his dumb mother who was killed by him with her legally owned guns. Then he went on a shooting rampage that included the killing of 20 six-year-olds. Don't they give you any facts on FUX News?
Clearly the talking points today are that the media should stop coverage of this news. It's not a time to FORGET, again. It's a time to ACT.
Homeschool a genius ? I read he went to college when he was 15 ? I want to see her school accreditations , It is against the law to Homeschool without a license. Also after 16 he didn't HAVE to go to school . Please continue the fallacies .

Let's agree and move on with hope, as a united country, to secure our country and our children (the future) with gun control and funding for mental health.
We the People, as PATRIOTIC AMERICANS must demand that Congress act RIGHT NOW and focus its FULL ATTENTION on gun control and mental health care to honor the innocent six-year-olds killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Let's not dwell on the past when we did nothing or nothing good enough. Let's make sure our children never have to endure another Christmas as painful as this one is, because we, as adults, did nothing, again.
This is an emotional and inspirational call for bipartisan unity. My friend just uploaded!

"Dedicated to the children, teachers and families of Sandy Hook; WE CHOOSE LOVE.

"For What it's Worth" is a song originally written and recorded by the 1960's band, "Buffalo Springfield." I rewrote a few lyrics with the intent of focusing on the issue of violence against our children. I hope that I have still honored the integrity of the original song, as powerful as it will always be."
