article imageOp-Ed: Operation Fast and Furious and the Second Amendment

By Eliot Elwar     Jun 30, 2012 in Crime
Operation Fast and Furious was a failed attempt to undermine the Second Amendment by the Obama administration. Both Holder and Obama are ruthless men, and they will do to anything to advance their liberal extremism.
News Max reports: The government-sanctioned gunrunning operation Fast and Furious was designed to undermine Second Amendment rights in America, according to National Rifle Association officer Wayne LaPierre during his interview with Newsmax.TV. “It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” LaPierre said. “Over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth. At the same time they were yelling ’90 per cent of the guns the Mexican drug cartels are using come from the United States.”
The Huffington Post reports: Republicans in Congress are arguing that the Justice Department deliberately allowed the anti-gun trafficking operation to unfold in a way that would create a crisis, outraging the public and giving Democrats the cover to implement stricter gun controls.
Analysis
From the start, it became very obvious that the Justice Department was untruthful, and this operation became a gigantic smokescreen. A few federal agents were murdered with the firearms from this operation, along with many Mexicans. It is hard to determine the exact number of people murdered because the firearms were not recovered at the crime scene.
The object of this operation was to get massive amounts of AK-47s from gun shops in America into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels, knowing they would be used for killing many people. With all the deaths and carnage, the murders would be seen as justification for the implementation of strict gun control throughout America. A few conservative analysts argue that Operation Fast and Furious was a scheme designed to get people killed and was then employed politically to undermine the Second Amendment. Operation Fast and furious demonstrates that Obama and Holder are ruthless men, and they will do anything to advance their liberal extremism.
