Gunrunner: Chuck Grassley “suspects” gun control was the real reason for Operation Fast and Furious
The position that I–and many others–hold for the real reason behind the government’s botched Operation Fast and Furious is this: The United States government was poised to use the violence at the Mexican border as an excuse to implement strict gun control legislation on law abiding American citizens. Hillary Clinton laid the groundwork for this scheme when she declared that America’s “insatiable appetite” for illegal drugs and inability to stop the sale of guns to Mexican criminals was to blame for the violence at the border. The government then released a false report which stated that 90% of ALL weapons recovered at crime scenes in Mexico and along the border were traced back to the United States. With the lie exposed it was time for the federal government to help the false claim along, so they implemented a scheme which would assure that guns sold in America turned up at crime scenes in Mexico, hence Operation Fast and Furious.
The ranking member of the House Oversight Committee also agrees with this synopsis, at least in part: Charles Grassley is now on record as stating that he believes the federal government initiated this deadly program in part because the Obama regime doesn’t “like the Second Amendment” and wants to “restrict guns.”
My suspicion is they don’t like the Second Amendment the way it is, and they are going to do everything to hurt guns and restrict guns. So they could have been building a case for that. But I can’t prove that
Senator Grassley admits that he cannot prove it, but he feels as if the Obama regime was trying to build a case for restricting gun ownership on law abiding American citizens. With all of the background information that we have on this issue it seems likely to me that that is exactly what the Obama regime intended, and if Senator Grassley is saying this now we can rest assured that he has much more information on this issue than we do.
I believe that Charles Grassley is sitting on information which would implicate the Obama regime and the true intent of Gunrunner and he is simply waiting for the chance to pounce on this. There is no way that he would come forward with this theory based on a whim when he has been charged with investigating the “Justice” Department, there has to be something there and he is waiting until he has all of the facts before he declares that he KNOWS the Obama regime had a more nefarious reason for handing weapons over to known violent Mexican criminals.
