Fast & Furious: Feinstein Pushes For Tighter Gun Laws

Posted by Brian
Boy, who didn't see this one coming.  The ATF and the Justice Department set up a gun-running "sting", allowing high powered weapons to cross into Mexico.  Said weapons are then used in numerous murders by drug cartels, including the murders of two U.S. law enforcement officers.  The Mexican government is never informed of this fiasco.  The approval for this appears to go all the way to the White House, and we now have Dianne Feinstein saying that this just shows that our gun laws are too lax.
This was a botched operation from the get-go, sanctioned by, not some rogue section of the ATF, but by officials high in the U.S. government, and possibly all the way up to the Oval Office.
When the story first broke, there were some who were already saying that the operation was intended as an end run to establish tougher gun laws for law-abiding U.S. citizens, and now it appears that that is truly the case.
