"What did Attorney General Eric Holder know -- and when did he know it?"

"That's the question congressional investigators are asking -- and rightly so -- about the [ATF], which stands exposed as having perpetrated one of the most bizarre gun-sting operations imaginable."

"ATF's acting director, Kenneth Melson, is expected to walk the plank any minute now over the failed stings -- Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious."

"But while his ouster is a necessary first step, it can't be the last." ...

"The New York Times spewed forth an editorial Monday titled 'Hypocrisy Locked and Loaded.'"

"Their central premise? 'If Congressional Republicans are really intent on getting to the bottom of [Project Gunwalker], they should call President Felipe Calderón of Mexico as an expert witness.'"

"Why?"
"Mr. Calderón has the data showing that the tens of thousands of weapons seized from the Mexican drug cartels in the last four years mostly came from the United States."
"No it doesn’t—that’s a damn lie ..." ...

... "Oh, of course, we need more restrictions on honest American gun owners and gun shops. Forget that there was NO sting, that the entire point of the exercise was to increase the number of American civilian market firearms used by the cartels to boost the Mexican body count and provide a pretext for more gun control. Forget that the 'statistics' are outright lies. The bias toward the meme is everything for the lapdog press, I get that. But calling Melson a 'victim' of this conspiracy is like saying Charles Manson was a 'victim' of the Helter Skelter murders." ...

Media & Congress Still Missing the Big Legal Point of the Gunwalker Scandal: it was a conspiracy to illegally export weapons to a foreign country.

... "I would like to introduce the uninitiated to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. Before the Gunwalker Scandal I was aware of it, but only recently have veterans of the Departments of State, Treasury, Commerce and Justice helped me to understand just how important these regulations are to an understanding of the depth and breadth of the conspiracy. In the analysis below I use, largely without attribution, quotes and ideas derived from these experts. If I do not quote them, or indicate their own personal biographies, it is because they wish to maintain their anonymity." ...

... "But there is an equally serious question about the breaking revelation: Why did the ATF wait until now to talk about this briefing? Why was there no mention of this briefing from Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson, in response to early inquiries by Sen. Charles Grassley (dating back to January) and Rep. Issa (dating back to March) about Operation Fast and Furious? Why, when Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich responded to inquires from Grassley and Issa earlier this year, did he not simply tell both lawmakers right up front that 'Congress was fully briefed on this operation, and Issa was there?'" ...

"Your 'Anti-government rhetoric alarming' editorial, June 12, is very similar to all the anti-Second Amendment groups. You nitpick because you have no valid reason for opposing the 'castle doctrine.' You make statements that have no facts to support them and your assumptions have not happened elsewhere. The misleading 'rhetoric' in your editorial is not a first, but many of us are hoping for some truthfulness to come from the YDR editorial board." ...

"With Wisconsin poised to allow people to carry concealed weapons in public, gun advocates have made Illinois — the last holdout — a prime target in their campaign to give citizens unrestricted rights to carry weapons."

"Illinois has been one of their toughest foes in the battle over Second Amendment rights. Chicago was forced by the U.S. Supreme Court last year to end a citywide ban on handguns that had been in effect since 1982. A bill to allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons was defeated in the General Assembly last month after Gov. Pat Quinn threatened to veto it." ...

"'We haven't got much, but what we have is basically gone,' she said." ...

"The motel's owner, Shawn Soltani, said it will cost $8,000 to $10,000 to remodel the room. He's still trying to find out who will foot the bill." ...

Submitter's note: This is becoming the new normal because most modern police have zero respect for the property of others. They see themselves as shiny badged gods who can do whatever they want.

... "The firing and reinstating of police officers is wreaking havoc within the MPD, veteran officers and their representatives say. Beyond the disruption to their career advancement, the officers say, MPD is deprived of their services for months while eventually being forced to rehire them and pay their back salaries."

"The resulting rap on Chief Lanier is that she does not adequately respect officers’ rights, and that an uneven brand of justice has undermined officer morale." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
