First, timing: I missed something in this at first glance. Something big. Mexico hired the law firm back in early November 2010 while the Gunwalker scandal still hadn't come to the surface. Here's an excellent question: Could it all been a part of the plan, just a soliloquy from Act II? Does this demonstrate that Calderon was in it from the beginning? Flood the border with U.S. traceable guns so you can prove the "90%" (or as close as you can get), and then have Calderon file suit to cripple the industry financially and keep the NRA busy, while Melson calls for new emergency restrictions and then put it all to bed with new comprehensive totally encompassing legislation. Now that actually could fit. If you're slightly mistrusting of the governments of Mexico and the United States, that is.
Second, about that law firm:
Found something interesting that may be of interest to Grassley. Apparently one of the partners of that law firm, just so happens to have been appointed by Obama to the Texas Federal bench.
President nominates Marina Garcia Marmolejo for Southern District bench
In a press release today from the White House, President Barack Obama announced his nomination of Marina Garcia Marmolejo, a partner in Reid Davisin San Antonio, as a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Well, isn't that interesting?
