Ongoing investigation, updates below
Democrat Gun Control! This is what you get when you give a government an inch, and currently, apathetic Americans have given theirs a mile.
Here is the highly anticipated report on the “Fast and Furious”, “Gun Runner”, “Gun Walker” Operation providing guns to Mexican Drug Cartel Terrorist, courtesy of the BATF&E, DOJ and other facets of the Communist Obama Administration. Of course “nobody knows anything” higher up the ladder than the Agents directed to work the operation, and one of them is the one who broke the story. The biggest coverup is the fact that there are NO, NONE, ZIP, NADA, current Congressional Members willing to honor their Oath by immediately initiating public hearings to remove them all, thus… “Dereliction of Duty” exists on a massive scale!

There are five key accusations against ATF and DOJ made by ATF whistleblowers and other sources within FedGov: Source
1. That they instructed U.S. gun dealers to proceed with questionable and illegal sales of firearms to suspected gunrunners.
2. That they allowed or even assisted in those guns crossing the U.S. border into Mexico to “boost the numbers” of American civilian market firearms seized in Mexico and thereby provide the justification for more firearm restrictions on American citizens and more power and money for ATF.
3. That they intentionally kept Mexican authorities in the dark about the operation, even over objections of their own agents.
4. That weapons that the ATF let “walk” to Mexico were involved in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, as well as at least hundreds of Mexican citizens.
5. That at least since the death of Brian Terry on 14 December, the Obama administration is engaged in a full-press cover-up of the facts behind what has come to be known as the “Gunwalker Scandal.”

As we all know the Media can be very ignorant, malicious about the Patriot Militia Movement, their constant use of the word “Militia” in a derogatory context in order to conform sheepish American, two party Kool Aid drinkers to the statements and accusations of Communist front groups like the SPLC, Brady Bunch and our own Government Bureaucracy’s, Homeland Security, BATF&E, etc., We are including the video below as example only, we do not know what events transpired in this particular case, it is breaking as of the writing of this post and we make no statement of guilt or innocence. Although, we have our suspicion. Ladies and Gentlemen, “it’s times like this that you find out who your true friends are”, the near future will give Patriots plenty of opportunity to find out!
