As Mexico prepares to sue American gun manufacturers over the flood of guns crossing into their country, and the progressive left blames the second amendment for gun violence south of the border, some mainstream media outlets are finally reporting on a little know government operation designed to import guns into Mexico for delivery into the hands of the very drug cartels responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people over the last few years.
The operation was authorized at the upper levels of law enforcement at the ATF and overseen by head US cop Attorney General Eric Holder. Mr. Holder, of course, refuses to take responsibility for the deaths, especially of Americans, which may have resulted from some 1800 weapons (that we know of) being illegaly transferred to Mexico under the umbrella of the operation code named “Project Gunrunner”:
I am going to take great exception to what you just said. The notion that somehow or other this Justice Department is responsible for those deaths that you mentioned – that assertion is offensive.
This is but a small microcosm of how big government works today. The overt hypocrisy is sickening.
It is nothing short of ridiculous and a gross violation of ethics, morality and decency when our nation’s top law enforcement agents are guilty of breaking the very laws they purport to protect, and then try to spin the entire story by blaming law abiding gun owners, gun manufacturers and the existence of the second amendment itself for violence in a country as corrupt and chaotic as Mexico.
Equally as sickening is the treatment received by Jay Dobyns, the undercover ATF agent who was, in part, involved directly with Project Gunrunner. The government left him completely alone and without protection. His family was left to fend for itself, and as a result, was almost murdered.
If our law enforcement agencies and the individuals who run them are prepared to do that to one of their own, think how much they care about you and your family.
