TOWNHALL — In the aftermath of the second and third worst Islamic terrorist attacks upon America since 9-11, the socialist left, enabled by the mainstream media, has manufactured a false narrative of individual gun control being the issue. They went so far as to completely embarrass themselves with a petulant “sit-in” on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives chamber. However, there is a real issue of gun and weapons control in the Obama administration that the progressive left does not want to mention, certainly not address.
Therefore, we shall.
During the tenure of the Obama administration there have been several instances of guns supplied through programs of this executive branch having a deadly result for American citizens. Let us not forget Operation Fast and Furious, and I am not referring to a movie with Vin Diesel. I speak of the Obama Department of Justice program that flooded weapons into Mexico — with the true intention of indicting the gun dealerships in America — under the purview of then Attorney General Eric Holder. Sadly, for U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, one of these weapons was used in his murder. Where is the accountability for that action? And, please, spare us the Bush Derangement Syndrome, saying that this was his program.
It would appear that the Bush administration’s Operation Wide Receiver, conducted in 2006 and 2007, had similarities but no one lost their life. Operation Fast and Furious was an Obama administration program that failed to have requisite controls in place to track the weapons part of the gun sales. And, we must mention that there were Mexican citizens who also lost their lives due to this very flawed Fast and Furious program.
