Gee, What a Shock

July 25th, 2011 | No Comments | Posted in We're from the government..., WTF

The Feds have no comment about how a couple of convicted felons were able to purchase over 300 firearms WHILE THEY WATCHED ON CLOSED CIRCUIT TV!

In the latest chapter of the gunrunning scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, federal officials won’t say how two suspects obtained more than 360 weapons despite criminal records that should have prevented them from buying even one gun.

Under current federal law, people with felony convictions are not permitted to buy weapons, and those with felony arrests are typically flagged while the FBI conducts a thorough background check.

However, according to court records reviewed by Fox News, two of the 20 defendants indicted in the Fast and Furious investigation have felony convictions and criminal backgrounds that experts say, at the very least, should have delayed them buying a single firearm. Instead, the duo bought dozens of guns on multiple occasions while federal officials watched on closed-circuit cameras.

So, while we hear more and more from the anti’s about how we need stronger gun control and we need to ‘close loopholes’ so that the bad guys can’t buy guns (even though most bad guys just steal them), here we have the federal agencies that are responsible for making sure that the people buying guns aren’t criminals turning a blind eye to the whole situation while they catch it on tape.
It seems more and more obvious to me that this is a situation of the government causing a major problem in order to then be able to come in and “fix it” through more totalitarian controls.
Syndrome would be proud.
When asked about the breakdown, Stephen Fischer, a spokesman for the NICS System, said the FBI had no comment. However, ATF Special Agent John Dodson, who worked the Fast and Furious investigation, said NICS officials called the ATF in Phoenix whenever their suspects tried to buy a gun. That conversation typically led to a green light for the buyers, when it should have stopped them.

Of course they have no comment.  Any lie they tell would be found out and they sure as hell don’t want us to know the truth.  Everyone that was involved in this should be fire or in jail, and the agency shut down.
