Obama Ignores Fast & Furious, Rushes to Announce ‘Gun Control Task Group’ in Wake of Newtown

Posted by on Dec 19, 2012 at 8:14 am

Not to diminish the horrors of Newtown in any way, but where was a task group to investigate Fast & Furious when his Attorney General ran guns to Mexico that resulted in hundreds of deaths?

Today we’ll get more talk and no action.

According to CBS reporter Norah O’Donnell, President Obama is planning to make a statement at noon today announcing a new task group to formulate gun policies in the aftermath of the Newton Connecticut tragedy.

Meanwhile, the guns Eric Holder ran to Mexico are still being found at crime scenes.

A gun found at the scene of a shootout between a Mexican drug cartel and soldiers where a beauty queen died was part of the botched “Fast and Furious” operation, CBS Newsreports.

Authorities had said that Maria Susana Flores Gamez was likely used as a human shield and that an automatic rifle had been found near her body after the Nov. 23 shootout.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tells CBS News that the Justice Department did not notify Congress that a Fast and Furious firearm was found at the scene in Sinaloa.

Since last Friday we’ve had a mostly incoherent media embarrassing themselves on gun issues, yet they’ve largely been absent when it came to Fast & Furious. Why is that?

Let us never forget the victims of Eric Holder.

    Well, of course they did not notify Congress. “Justice” does not know sh*t from Sinaloa!

    Does this mean that in the future, guns actually registered to US owners will begin showing up at Mexico crime scenes? The Preezy takes the guns up here and gives them away like candy down there.

    The good news is that they already have the boots on the ground to make this work. Giving away weapons in Mexico post-2012 may be Deal Leader’s first actual shovel-ready project. Once he can take them away from US citizens, the nasty process of using stimulus funds to buy them goes away. These projects practically run themselves once the Constitution is taken out of the way.

    Obama needs to be impeached, imprisoned, and plunked into a cell alongside holder and jarret.
