The government agencies knew of these guns but did nothing. It's not about Mexico its about taking down our rights bit by bit. if the second admendment was to NOT BE INFRINGED then there is no need to report multiple guns sales. What if for christmas or your son's birthday you wanted to buy him a new .22 or maybe another type of rifle, then you got a good bonus at work and wanted to buy a new hunting rifle or and AR 15, do you really think it should have to be reported the a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY? They are just trying to destroy and American way of life by infringing on our rights.
What I am saying is that your commercial firearm purchases are on the record anyway. Gun dealers save the information on your purchase for 20 years.....The BATF can audit that information any time they want to.
No, I wouldn't have a problem if the Feds wanted to see if I were a drug dealer or terrorist. If I did I would have never bought a gun from an FFL, joined the NRA, Gone to a gun show, got a FFL-03, or ever bought a round of ammo, or a firearm on-line or ever logged onto any forum that talked about guns.
Do you not also expect that the government also keeps list of folks who participate on gun forums? Everything you ever do, any credit card you ever use, every thing you have ever said online, every cell phone call you have ever made is available to investigators, get over it.
If you lived near the border with the drug cartels, would you not want law enforcement to know if someone was buying 20 AKs from each of 6 dealers every week, in your back yard? Or, would you prefer a Mexico style shoot-out taking place next to where your kids go to school?
The government had their heads up their butts with fast an furious, no doubt. However,I would prefer to not have to face the drug gangs on my own, thats why we have a government. I want them to do their job.
I just don't see an evil government lurking behind every bush. If I did, I would go somewhere else.
