(NaturalNews) Even as President Obama searches for a way to take away your right of self-defense in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, guns his own administration let "walk" across the border into the hands of Mexican drug gangs continue to show up at crime scenes both north and south of the border.
The latest incident involved a Romanian-made AK-47 semi-automatic rifle that was used in a shooting that has claimed the life of a Mexican beauty queen.
According to CBS News, officials have confirmed that the rifle recovered at the scene is definitely one of thousands of firearms that Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents allowed straw buyers to purchase in the United States with the intent of tracking them back to the Mexican drug gangs as part of Operation Fast and Furious.
Congressional investigators said the crime scene was probably one where a recent shootout took place between purported members of the Sinaloa drug cartel and the Mexican army. During the gun battle, Sinaloa beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez and four others were killed, the report said.
How many more Fast and Furious guns will kill?
Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa - who has been tracking the botched operation - said the Justice Department, which oversees ATF, did not notify Congress of the recovery of the Fast and Furious weapon in November, though the senator had previously requested an accounting of all the weapons which ultimately surface in the case. During Fast and Furious, the ATF allowed more than 2,000 weapons - including huge, long-range .50 caliber rifles - fall into the hands of deadly drug cartels and other criminal enterprises. Most of these weapons have never been recovered.
The Romanian rifle discovered at the latest Mexican crime scene was a WASR-10, a type of AK-47, officials said. It was found Nov. 23 in Ciudad Guamuchil, Sinaloa, Mexico - the same area and weekend of the shootout where Flores Gamez was killed.
A trace report shows the weapon was bought by Uriel Patino, the Fast and Furious suspect who is suspected of buying more than 700 weapons while under the watch of the BATF. CBS News reported that records show he bought the rifle and nine additional semi-automatic weapons at a gun store in Arizona March 16, 2010.
Hmm... so it's alright when the Government has guns and sells them to drug lords... but God forbid you tax paying, law abiding citizens own the same guns we're selling to thugs. And these same guns sold by our beloved Government are killing innocent people. WTF??? Can we say... hypocrisy on steroids???
*correction.... guns handed over to drug lords... yeah right. When was the last time our Government did anything for free?
