ATF makes a huge deal about guns going to Mexico and uses it in an attempt to push through more gun laws and restrictions.  On the outside they claim to really be cracking down to stop the flow but really they were adding fuel to the fire.  They claim it was to see where they were going but you have to wonder if they were really trying to make the problem as large as possible in order to push their agenda.
 
Well it cost a Federal agent his life and the ATF once again finds itself in another major scandal.  On top of this, Obama is trying to put in what the NRA sees as the most dangerous anti-gun appointment yet.  Read more here.
 
Sen. Charles Grassley, a senior member of the Committee of the Judiciary is protecting the field officers that blew the whistle and has launched a congressional investigation into "Project GunWalker".

The atf needs to be completly disbanned and reformed.  I think that all government agencies just like the local sheriff shoudl be elected officials, not appointed.

Will be interesting to follow this story and see how little press it gets.

This goes for most Government agencies, to big and out or loss of control.

It's a simple concept... Allow known serialized guns into Mexico so the government can later decry the problem with gun control as the guns are later used in crimes, both North and South of the border.

The only fly in the ointment for the government is that this story broke before the BATF could wash their hands of their involvement.
