Red face Welcome

Welcome to the dirty war, first create the problem then offer to be the solution to that problem.

Way to go Chuck!

Here is a message I sent to the senator's office:

Quote:
Sen. Grassley-

I recently read your correspondence to acting BATFE Director Melson. Thank you very much for addressing the discrepancies in Project Gunrunner. It is very encouraging to see your office taking action on this.
I'd like to suggest that we all contact his office and let him know that we appreciate someone in Washington taking action on this.

Default Update!

This was on Ammoland.

AmmoLand Shooting Sports News

Senator Grassley Presses BATFE On Project Gunrunner

FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- Pointing to documentation that guns used by Mexican nationals in a shootout with Border Patrol agents were allowed to be sold under suspicious circumstances with the knowledge of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is calling on the agency to fully respond to his inquiries into the case.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in that encounter on Dec. 14 of last year.

Grassley has called the response of BATFE to his original letter on inquiry “little more than delay and denial.”

Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich responded to Grassley on Feb. 4 denying the allegations.

Senator Grassley on Feb. 9 wrote Attorney General Eric Holder to again request that BATFE cooperate with his investigation, writing “the Terry family deserves answers.”

Grassley stated in the letter that he has documentation for his allegations.

“The whistleblowers have expressed a desire to honor agent Terry’s memory by disclosing this information. The Justice Department should work to do the same. The best way to honor his memory is to come clean.”

Senator Grassley has demonstrated that he is determined to uncover the truth regarding BATFE’s investigative tactics, even as BATFE seems intent on shutting down his investigation. BATFE has accused Grassley of conducting a “partisan” investigation and has even gone so far as to ask that Senate Judiciary Committee staff stop talking to law enforcement personnel.

Since Agent Terry’s killing, BATFE has denied the allegations regarding its investigations while at the same time claiming that a shortage of manpower and resources prevents the agency from accounting for all the firearms it is tracking.

The obvious question is: Did BATFE have no involvement with the firearms involved in the shootout, or did it lack the manpower to do its job effectively?

Either way, the BATFE’s desire to mandate reporting of multiple long gun sales by border area firearms dealers is questionable since BATFE seems incapable of managing the criminal leads it already has and unwilling to submit to constitutionally mandated Congressional oversight.

It's one thing for the Gov't to cost the people loss of money with their ineptness and politics, but it's quite another when lives are being lost.
Don't complain the war FOR poverity is going great! I used to have a little money now the thieves in DC have got it all and I don't have enough to pay attention

It made CBS News last nite and again this morning. I'm sure they only hit the tip of the iceberg but it was informative and placed BATF in a pretty precarious position. I just wrote to both Wa Senators to enlist support for Sen Grassely's investigation.
