Our fast and furious president should slow down [UPDATED]Published 5:50am Monday, January 21, 2013 Updated 7:51am Monday, January 21, 2013
It is time to examine the motives of President Obama, in light of his campaign to weaken American citizens by restricting access to arms. We had the spectacle of a politician surrounding himself with children, assuming a posture as their protector.handled
President Obama blocked an investigation into his executive office about the use of federal funds that supplied weapons to Mexican gangsters. These gangsters used the guns to kill hundreds, including innocent bystanders and police on both sides of the border.
President Obama’s operation was called “Fast and Furious” which was quite different than President Bush’s “Project Gunrunner”. “Project Gunrunner” included the Mexican government, and utilized international data exchange to track the guns.
“Fast and Furious” guns were not tracked, Mexican authorities were not notified. “Fast and Furious” supplied over 2500 guns to Mexican drug cartels. John Dodson blew the whistle on “Fast and Furious” because US Border Patrol Brian Terry was killed with one of these guns, and the ATF and Justice Department ignored Dodson’s pleas to end the program.
President Obama’s exectutive branch armed criminals, resulting in murders in the U.S. and Mexico. The guns Obama’s administration authorized were primarily semi-automatic AK47′s, what Obama refers to as “assault weapons”. President Obama is advocating the American citizen to be weaker than the criminals that recieved “Fast and Furious” guns.
President Obama’s actions are the exact reason the second amendment was written.
