Cop gets shot. Bystander grabs cops gun and fights robbers. NYEffin'C considered charging bystander because The agent, who is not licensed to carry a gun, could face charges, sources said. It's since been announced they won't charge him for the horrendous act of picking up the dropped gun and fighting the bad guys; that the authorities would even consider charging him- especially for that 'reason'- is just disgusting.
The gun bigots and banners are still at work; and Rep. King is apparently a fan of Lautenberg. Or just an idiot, I don't know which:
In essence, you can be accused of international or domestic terrorism by some unknown accuser and then be turned down for a firearms purchase. If the Attorney General deems it in the interest of "national security", then he doesn't need to even tell you why you were denied and you are prohibited from suing to seek answers. This law would strip you of your right to due process.
The two pieces of human waste who murdered the Fogels, including a baby, have been caught. Two more teenaged palisimians who insist they did a wonderful thing.
On the subject of Gunwalker and the fallout:
The terrible thing about this scandal for the Corrupt Powers That Be is that, in the final analysis, it is not about guns, but about power and corruption. This is not some hard-to-understand bit of firearms law arcana. The people who were entrusted -- who we pay big taxpayer bucks along with that trust -- to keep arms out of the hands of the evil bad guys facilitated the very thing they were trusted to prevent AND PEOPLE DIED. A reporter told me, months ago now, that they had been told that Gunwalker "was as bad as Watergate." I replied, "Nobody died at the Watergate Hotel." We have likely hundreds of dead from this scandal already and it is certain that more Mexicans die at the muzzles of these weapons every week if not every day.
This is not something the average American, even one politically clueless, is going to understand or take lightly once he or she learns of it. It involves simple issues of trust and common sense. And believe me, despite the best efforts of the politically-reliable media elites to ignore this story, that pestilence-ridden cat is out of the bag. Even if the administration was able to stop the reporting of this scandal now, today, it could not stop the continued threat of this awful story to its own legitimacy. For that we have the Internet to thank. Commissar Lanny Breuer does not control all the printing presses any more. The fact that the media elite is in the tank for Obama becomes increasingly irrelevant as their own media outlets become increasingly ignored by a growing public that no longer trusts them either.
A bit more on what has been caused by this idiocy:
In the two years since Barack Obama took office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ramped up its Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious gun trafficking sting operations, drug war homicides in Mexico nearly tripled, according to an article published over the weekend by Global Research.
This revelation comes coincidentally to the publication of the transcript of an interview on Univision, made available today by independent blogger Mike Vanderboegh, one of two men responsible for uncovering the Project Gunrunner controversy.
Figures quoted by the Global Research article come from the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego. They appear in a report titled Drug Violence in Mexico: Data and Analysis Through 2010, and show that the body count has risen sharply at the same time that the Obama State Department has allowed private arms sales to Mexico exceed those to Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel. My colleague, Kurt Hofmann takes a hard look at those arms sales here.
It doesn't really matter to the dead and their families whether the idiocy we call Project Gunwalker was due to fools thinking they could somehow 'get the cartels' by this, or if it was a deliberate act to try to destroy the 2nd Amendment as the folks at Sipsey Street suspect: agents of the US Government actually assisted criminals in carrying out illegal acts, and lied about it, and literally God only knows how many people are dead because of it, how much damage done. And, as pointed out, if the guilty are allowed to get away with their coverup, the damage to this country is, well, incalculable.
An anniversary I doubt the major media gives a damn about since it involved armed Jews killing Nazis.
I'll close with what Insty describes as "You told them what works": excuses have been made for , actual encouragement given to the muslim version of the Heckler's Veto("You offend us and we'll riot and kill"), so it looks like someone took the lesson to heart.
