... "So of course this means the government also knows which gun was used to kill Agent Terry. That the Justice Department refuses, as yet, to confirm that points to the same intentional stonewalling that kept the beanbag information suppressed for so long."

"Officials who do not want information about the circumstances of Agent Terry’s death and about wider 'Project Gunwalker' allegations to come to light are engaging in a cover up." ...

"Do you carry a back-up firearm? Most people would answer quite reasonably, 'Dude, I'm not Rambo; and I wouldn’t want a jury to think that I thought I was either.' Most gun owners have enough trouble hauling around one gun and its accessories for 10 or 12 or 14+ hours a day—to the point where many give up concealed carry altogether. ... But plenty of CCW holders at the instructor-level carry two guns. Packing two heaters is a common custom and practice for cops and security professionals alike. Are there some compelling reasons for stuffing a little extra iron in your pants? D’uh . . ." ...

"In the wake of the Tucson shooting, Arizona’s legislature is considering various bills addressing guns and violence. The legislation with the best chance of passage has nothing to do with strengthening the state’s laws to prevent dangerous individuals from easily acquiring the firepower that enabled [the shooter] to shoot 19 people in about 16 seconds, killing six of them. Incredibly, the bill with the most momentum would force Arizona colleges and universities to allow the concealed carry of guns on campus." ...

"The Truth About Guns has been following the ATF’s Gunwalker Scandal for some time. That’s the name given by Gun Rights Examiner writer David Codrea to the stink surrounding the revelation that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires) allowed smugglers to purchase guns in the United States—and failed to intervene in their journey down the so-called Iron River to Mexico. (Codrea was riffing on the name of the ATF’s interdiction efforts: Project Gunrunner.) ..."

"Federal agent John Dodson says what he was asked to do was beyond belief."

"He was intentionally letting guns go to Mexico?"

"'Yes ma'am,' Dodson told CBS News. 'The agency was.'"

"An [ATF] senior agent assigned to the Phoenix office in 2010, Dodson's job is to stop gun trafficking across the border. Instead, he says he was ordered to sit by and watch it happen." ...

"Dodson's bosses say that never happened. Now, he's risking his job to go public."

"'I'm boots on the ground in Phoenix, telling you we've been doing it every day since I've been here," he said. "Here I am. Tell me I didn't do the things that I did. Tell me you didn't order me to do the things I did. ...'" ...

"But the agents who objected within their own agency were repeatedly rebuffed, they were told to keep their mouths shut, to stop complaining about it, in one case we have an internal email that describes a supervisor telling somebody ‘If you don’t like it you can go work for the Maricopa County Jail—if this isn’t fun to you then you can go find something else to do.'

... "PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the Second Amendment in this country is part of our Constitution and the President of the United States is bound by our Constitution. So I believe in the Second Amendment. It does provide for Americans the right to bear arms for their protection, for their safety, for hunting, for a wide range of uses. That does not mean that we cannot constrain gunrunners from shipping guns into Mexico. And so we believe that we can shape an enforcement strategy that slows the flow of guns into Mexico, while at the same time preserving our Constitution." ...

Submitter's Note: Okay, how about stopping the out of control ATF from "walking" more guns to Mexico?
