The MSM keeps placing the blame the gun store's here in Phoenix (and I assume elsewhere). Which I think is the real crime. These owners know BATF and can't defend themselves, because of retaliation. This really needs to be investigated.

Default CCRKBA Lauds Holder Decision To ‘Follow Our Suggestion’ & Investigate the ATF

This is getting interesting day-by-day!

CCRKBA Lauds Holder Decision To ‘Follow Our Suggestion’ & Investigate the ATF

AmmoLand Shooting Sports News

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today that Attorney General Eric Holder’s call for the Justice Department’s inspector general to examine the “Project Gunrunner” scandal is “exactly what we called on him to do more than a week ago.”

Holder announced last Thursday night – following a second expose by CBS News on the a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix dubbed “Fast and Furious” that is part of the agency’s broader “Project Gunrunner” effort – that he was asking the Inspector General to look into allegations that the operation deliberately allowed hundreds of guns to be transported to Mexico.

That decision was followed by a second announcement by ATF Acting Director Kenneth Melson that he will assemble a panel of law enforcement professionals to review the agency’s strategies.

“Evidently,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “Mr. Holder acted on our advice. This scandal screams for an investigation, and Sen. Charles Grassley should not be out there on his own probing this scandal.”

CCRKBA issued a statement on Feb. 24 that called on Holder to either investigate the Gunrunner controversy or step down. CCRKBA also urged its members to contact their senators and congressional representatives, demanding oversight hearings on the ATF’s handling of this operation.

“Guns allowed into the illicit pipeline by the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation were involved in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and countless other crimes in Mexico and the United States,” Gottlieb added. “Reports by CBS, the Los Angeles Times and other news agencies point to an operation that got out of control in a hurry. The people responsible for this mess should be fired.

“Because of the CBS revelations last night,” he said, “we are renewing our call for American gun owners to contact Capitol Hill and ask why the appropriate House and Senate committees are not already investigating this debacle.”

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

The only thing that motivates Holder and this bunch is unrelenting pressure, similar to that of his balls in a vice, yeah, that'll work.

Just watched a follow-up on this tonite. ATF has a real problem now that this scam has been traced back to 2007. The honcho's released a memo asking for more positive press stories as they figure "Gunwalker" only has a 2 week lifespan in the news. Looks like it made it that and more. Go CBS.

Wayne LaPierre spoke w/ Beck yesterday and brought Gunwalker up. He got some facts muddled, but Beck was very interested.

Rumor (which I can't comment on) has it that at least one of the people who helped break the story has been contacted by Beck's staff to get the straight scoop - documentation, timelines and facts. Hopefully Beck will run with this.

IMO, the more attention this fiasco gets, the better. Obviously the only reason Holder stepped up to pretend to be concerned is because of the publicity. Didn't Nixon profess to have no knowledge of Watergate when it first was brought to light?!

I think the BATFE really needs to get their priorities straight, instead of harassing the law-abiding citizen gun owner/buyer, should they not be working to get the guns out of the hands of CRIMINALS!!! Instead they harass FFL dealers for clerical errors and such, I guess it is safer and easier to create criminals instead of going after actual criminals!
