More “Fast and Furious” failures by the ATF

Wait wait wait… so you mean that it’s actually the BATFE that is supplying guns to the Mexican drug cartels and not honest, law-abiding gun shop owners?  Say it ain’t so…

Weapons Arsenal Found in Mexico Contains Guns From U.S. Probe

From the article:

The lawmakers claim the operation allowed suspected traffickers to buy more than 2,500 weapons in the U.S. and may have helped fuel the trafficking the ATF is supposed to try to prevent.

Mexican police in late April raided a home in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas. They reported finding a cache that included two dozen AK-47-style rifles, three antiaircraft machine guns, dozens of grenades and more than 26,000 rounds of ammunition.

Oh yeah… I can just walk into any gun store in Arizona or Texas and pick me up some anti-aircraft machine guns or grenades.  <atomic eyeroll>  These were either provided by our government, or by theirs (or more likely, “stolen” from their military).
