We’ve all heard about the Justice Department’s (DoJ) operation Fast and Furious that involved smuggling guns from the United States into Mexico to arm the drug cartels. Any person with two braincells would tell you the sole cause of this problem was the government but Dianne Feinstein, being the stupid bitch she is, is blaming Fast and Furious on America’s “weak” gun laws:
Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that lax gun control laws, not Obama administration malfeasance within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF), was the real problem uncovered by Operation Fast and Furious.
“My concern, Mr. Chairman, is there’s been a lot said about Fast and Furious, and perhaps mistakes were made, but I think this hunt for blame doesn’t really speak about the problem,” Feinstein said during the Tuesday hearing. “And the problem is, anybody can walk in and buy anything, .50-caliber weapons, sniper weapons, buy them in large amounts, and send them down to Mexico. So, the question really becomes, what do we do about this?”
“I’ve been here 18 years,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve watched the BATF get beaten up at every turn on the road. And, candidly, it’s just not right.”
Apparently anybody can buy any firearm in large quantities and send them down to Mexico yet it took government agents to actually make this hypothetical scenario a reality. Owners of gun stores tried to prevent sales to individuals who they believed were smuggling arms into Mexico but were ordered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to make the sales. Thus the problem doesn’t seem to be “lax” gun laws or even store owners selling any number of weapons to anybody. The only problem in Fast and Furious is the fact the government was directly arming the Mexican drug cartels.
This hypothetical scenario presented by Dianne Feinstein was just that, hypothetical. It wasn’t a problem at all until the government got involved and made a fine mess of things. Anybody who tries to use Fast and Furious as justification to enact stricter gun control laws can sodomize themselves with a retractable baton. The only thing people should be demanding from Fast and Furious is strong government control.
