A Fast & Furious weapon was found in El Chapo’s hideout in Mexico. It was a .50 caliber rifle strong enough to take down a helicopter. These Fast & Furious guns have reached the top levels of the drug cartels. We must again have a conversation about how far the government will go to force gun control down our throats.
It was funneled through Fast & Furious and it is the fifth rifle found that has caused deaths, the third death in Mexico.
A judge just ruled that the DOJ has to release the Fast & Furious documents by February 2nd. Loretta Lynch was asked about it a gun hearing Wednesday but evaded the question and it is believed they will appeal. What are they hiding?
Loretta Lynch is worried about law-abiding gun owners and dealers but the government sold guns to criminals without tracking them.
Fox News reported Wednesday:
After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one Mexican marine, officials found a number of weapons inside the house where Guzman was staying, including the rifle, officials said.
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.
Thirty-four of the 2,000 Fast & Furious weapons were .50 caliber rifles.
The ATF allowed drug cartels to buy guns but lost track of 1400 of them.
Many believed the DOJ was using the program to justify limiting the Second Amendment, banning assault weapons and establishing a national registry. There is reason to believe it is possible.
Sharyl Attkisson researched the case thoroughly and posted a 60-page document on Fast & Furious but the government is still holding information back.
ATF’s internal Public Affairs Talking Points show the agency was using Fast and Furious to help justify new gun control regulations–without telling the public that ATF was actually facilitating the delivery of weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
On page 15 of the 60-page document the talking points state:
“These cases demonstrate the ongoing trafficking of firearms by Mexican DTO’s and other associated groups operating in Arizona and the need for reporting of multiple sales for certain types of rifles in order to ferret out those intent on providing firearms to these criminal groups.”
On p. 14, they called Fast & Furious perfected and mentioned all the agencies involved:
“The Fast and Furious investigation is just one of a number of firearms trafficking cases perfected by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Strike Force, a multi-agency team of investigators from ATF, DEA, ICE, IRS, and the Phoenix Police Department.”
Attkisson wrote in 2014, when the document was released that clues as to why President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder kept the public documents secret for so long may be found in one 60-page release…Nearly three years after-the-fact, its news value is diminished. If these documents had been turned over when Congress subpoenaed them or when they were first requested under FOI law, they would have revealed damaging information in the lead-up to President Obama’s re-election in 2012. By exerting executive privilege, the President and Holder kept them hidden until the court challenge forced their release.
There was widespread knowledge of the operation but the administration tried to portray it as something one department took upon itself. Holder denied under oath that he had any knowledge of it.
The DOJ destroyed whistleblowers to keep their treachery quiet.
Valerie Jarrett was a key player in the coverup.
Hillary tried to use Fast & Furious to sell gun control. The mantra at the time was the U.S. was responsible for the use of guns by drug cartels in Mexico.
When the following video was made and when Fast & Furious was being implemented, Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder were insisting we needed an assault weapons ban and a national registry.
