National gun rights writer David Codrea has written two new articles detailing the growing ATF scandal he is calling "Project Gunwalker".
The first story is the news that Senator Charles Grassley is now calling for an independent investigation of the ATF. Here is a quote from the article:
Senator Chuck Grassley today said that he did not have confidence that the Justice Department Inspector General’s office could produce a report that the public would view as frank and unbiased in its investigation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) policy of letting guns “walk” along the Southwest border—a policy that may have contributed to the death of a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent.
The second article is about a CBS news story which says documents show the ATF has been walking guns over the southern border since 2008.
Another quote from this story:
Multiple sources now tell CBS News the questionable tactics were used in more than one operation, and date back as far as 2008 in the Tucson area. One case was called "Wide Receiver."
David Codrea helped break this big event just after Christmas, and it is just now becoming nuclear.
What has this to do with gun rights in Arkansas?
The ATF is pushing for more documentation on sales of more than one firearm in the border states. This policy could easily spread to Arkansas, simply by the stroke of a pen by an ATF official. The ATF has also been using these hundreds of firearms to bolster the number of "traced" guns; Attorney General Eric Holder is using these numbers in an attempt to reinstate the failed Assault Weapon Ban. These bogus numbers have been used by the liberal press and the anti-gun groups to hammer the public into submission, but we must not let this happen.
Contact your U.S. Representative and your two U.S. Senators and tell them to support Senator Grassley's call for a investigation today.
