‘Fast and Furious’ a prelude to gun registration?
By Bob Unruh
The National Rifle Association has launched a lawsuit against Washington’s plans for additional paperwork requirements for gun dealers in four southwestern states, claiming that the Obama administration is trying to “distract” the public from its own mistakes in “Operation Fast and Furious.”
But what if, asks a spokesman with the Second Amendment Foundation, the paperwork was the goal of the “Operation Fast and Furious” debacle by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives?
The ATF sting operation, in an attempt to build a case against Mexican criminal organizations, allowed at least 2,000 illegal weapons to be purchased in the United States and taken across the southern border so they could be traced.
