Gun Owners of the San Fernando Valley Posts

David Rittgers at National Review Online writes about “Operation Fast and Furious”, or “Project Gunwalker” as it’s known in some circles…

Congress should be able to assume that the gun-control laws already on the books are being enforced. That does not seem to be the case. Congress should find out why, and the public should bear it in mind next time Attorney General Holder or Mexican president Felipe Calderón says that a new assault-weapons ban is necessary. 

One has to wonder, since there really wasn’t an “iron river” of guns going from the US retail firearms market into Mexico, was one created? Sounds kinda tin-foil-hat-ish when you put it that way, but how else to explain why BATFE let hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of firearms into Mexico?

Cam Edwards interviewed Richardo Sandoval of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists on the “Fast and Furious” (Or “Gunwalker”) allegations…

Remember that this is the same BATFE that wants to further monitor the firearms purchases of law abiding Americans for the supposed purpose of preventing gun running into Mexico.

I’m usually not for for quoting Huff-n-Puff, but they published this very interesting piece on the Obama Administration’s intention to rule by executive fiat. If they cannot get their way on guns with Congress through normal (i.e. Constitutional) means, then the Administration plans on going around them…

Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum,” one official said. “We think that’s a good place to start.” 

Were this from some site that could be described as part of the “right-wing fever swamp”, I might have my doubts; but coming from Huff-n-Puff? That’s another matter. These are Obama’s peeps! Why would they stir up gun owners with mere fairy tales? Quite simply, they wouldn’t. They are reporting what they likely see as good news.
