The man who shed tears speaking about gun deaths in America has no problems selling high-powered sniper rifles to Mexican drug kingpins, and Islamic radicals.
I wonder if El Chapo passed an instant background check?
When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.
Federal officials told Fox News they are not sure how many of the weapons seized from Guzman’s house actually originated in the U.S. and where they were purchased, but are investigating.
Back in May, if you remember, a couple of terrorists pulled up at a “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas. They were killed by police during a gun battle. Where did they get the rifles? The answer came in August.
This week the scandal took on a new dimension with the revelation that Nadir Soofi, one of two Muslim terrorists killed attempting to murder attendees of a “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest held in Texas in May, had acquired one of the guns he owned as a result of the Fast and Furious operation. This meant that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was in the position of indirectly selling Islamic terrorists one of the weapons they may have used in an attack on Americans on American soil.
Yet, dangerous “assault rifles” (which are no different than most hunting rifles except they look “scary”) should be banned (which they were in the 1990’s to no effect), according to Obama.
I really hope–I do–that the rifles used in San Bernardino aren’t tracked back to Fast & Furious. If they are, then the number of murders on Obama’s hands will be higher than most spree killers.
Barack Obama, gun dealer.
