Thanks to Michael Walsh, I found a very good timeline concerning the ATF Fast and Furious program in Arizona that started in 2009 – right about the time of the “90 percent of recovered guns in Mexico came from US gun shops” lie.
As Jim mentioned today on the big radio show, he mentioned the Fast and Furious program on March 4 when writing about the Mexican president’s desire for America to just ditch the 2nd Amendment. I wrote about the story and provided a bit of background yesterday.
The timeline is available over at ReasonedPolitics and has routinely been updated since mid-April. The site provides a simple-to-read timeline with links to the details and you should go read it.
More from Michelle Malkin, whose column today introduces us to the anti-gun zealot from Chicago who President Obama wants to tap as the next head of ATF, Andrew Traver.
For 30 years, Chicago banned handguns. The crime rate skyrocketed. Murders soared. Gangs blossomed. Desperate city officials even considered calling the National Guard to combat the out-of-control violence that all the “community organizing” in the world couldn’t curb. The Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s individual firearms ownership prohibition last year, but the same anti-gun zealots who put Windy City citizens’ lives at risk remain in power.
And now one of them may soon be in charge of the scandal-plagued Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
