Garland shooter was allowed to purchase handgun under Operation Fast and Furious

August 2, 2015

 Back in May of this year Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi opened fire outside of a “draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas and now some new questions have come to light about Nadir Soofi. It turns out that during Operation Fast and Furious he was allowed to purchase a handgun through the Lone Wolf Trading Co. even though authorities were concerned enough to slap a seven day waiting period on the transaction.

  It has been a long time since we have had a Fast and Furious update but you might remember that the Lone Wolf Trading Co. was working with the Federal government in the gunrunning program.

  Here is more about this latest development:

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.

Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.

Soofi’s attempt to buy a gun caught the attention of authorities, who slapped a seven-day hold on the transaction, according to his Feb. 24, 2010, firearms transaction record, which was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, the hold was lifted after 24 hours, and Soofi got the 9-millimeter.

  So, authorities were concerned and hit the transaction with a seven day waiting period and yet it was lifted within 24 hours? I do not think the reason the hold was lifted remains unclear at all: it certainly sounds as if Lone Wolf was told to let the gun walk because that is typical of what happened during this failed operation.

  It is unclear whether the weapon purchased under Fast and Furious was found at the scene of the Garland shooting (Eric Holder did say they would continue to show up at crime scenes for years to come) but it did not take long for the Federal authorities to realize they might have a situation on their hands.

A day after the attack, the Department of Justice sent an “urgent firearms disposition request” to Lone Wolf, seeking more information about Soofi and the pistol he bought in 2010, according to a June 1 letter from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, to U.S. Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch.

Though the request did not specify whether the gun was used in the Garland attack, Justice Department officials said the information was needed “to assist in a criminal investigation,” according to Johnson’s letter, also reviewed by The Times.

  This shows you the type of people the Department of Injustice was allowing weapons to be sold to and hopefully that criminal investigation is into Eric Holder but somehow I do not think it is…

    Eric Holder’s Operation fast and Furious, was intended to be an assault on the Second Amendment, and to get public outcry to change the US Constitution by abolishing firearm ownership in America with exception of Elite class of celebrities, politicians, security, law enforcement, by elected officials or bureaucrats authorization and whim ($$$).

      I guess people aren’t that stupid … yet … more conditioning, brainwashing and programming and soon they’ll be right for harvest. Or one ‘big even’t that destroys so much, people willingly give up guns, property and rights for food, water and shelter/gov protection.

      One reason I believe the left is pushing so hard for an Article V convention – to change the 2nd and allow non-citizens to vote. Right now, the Constitution says only citizens may vote, but put a convention together and who knows what amendments will be offered up.

        I agree. The Socialists are working up their beer muscles, but, once the US Constitution is opened, there is NO LAW, in America until the Constitution is closed. Everything becomes lawful. Murder, rape, arson, robbery, etc., everything. Very dangerous move, as if a Revolution breaks out, no parties could be held culpable for damages. The elected officials cannot open the document without announcement, and I really do not like it because they might go after 2A, but, 12A, 13A, 14A, 15A, all, might end up on the ash heap. A new form of government could take over and, states could very easily resign from the union of states. Nothing to stop any of it, once the Law of the Land, is suspended or breeched.

        I never thought of a convention that way before, but you’re right. If the Country were to have a Constitutional Convention, our Supreme Law would be in limbo until the convention ended. Wow, that’s very scary.

        All the things they like to do Brittius!
        Laura they want to ‘evolve’ which means a Global dictate, minus the Constitution – like Brittius states “a new form of government” some call it Technocracy = a theory and movement, prominent about 1932, advocating control of industrial resources, reform of financial institutions, and reorganization of the social system, based on the findings of technologists and engineers.

        I agree Laura. I used to believe a convention was a good idea but once it is convened anything is on the table and that could get very scary. We of course remember that the writers of the Constitution did not have the authority to scrap the Articles of Confederation and replace them and that is what they did, the same thing could theoretically happen again.

        I would like to see the 17th Amendment repealed, but we don’t need a convention for that. Congress could propose that amendment….not that they ever would, though. 🙂

        I would also like to see the 17th amendment repealed but you are right about that one needing a convention and even then it probably would not happen because most people don’t understand why the States chose the Senators in the first place.

      Thanks for the reblog and you are 100% right. They dreamed up this scheme in order to promote (and “prove”) the lie about 90% of border crime scenes involved illegal guns and they were doing to garner support for gun control and the UN small arms treaty.

    …and look at the criminals we allow to run the DOJ. We changed an angry white hating black man for an angry white hating black woman; she with the stamp of approval from both sides of the aisle. Nothing new here.

    How many of these “lone wolves” are Cia/Fbi bred and groomed? Recent news: ‘James Holmes’ biological mother stepped forward and said the FBI took him from her as a baby and made an MK ultra drone out of him’. Similar to the falsifying: ‘The MH370 wing piece is a totally proven fake, .. The barnacle report proves all they did was lab grow the barnacles on a wing flap and drop it on the beach,’
    The stage setter upper’s:

    Departments of ‘InJustice’ is right Steve. Hegelian Dialectic at work.

      Plus they get so many of our children on mind altering drugs at a young age and send them to psychiatrists “for their own good.”

        Good point Steve. Any much of this goes on ‘without the parents’ knowledge or approval. The Feds and State act like they ‘own them’ as resources, which it part of the evil plan. This has been going on for generations – remember prez w. wilson, his type of thinking.

        Wilson was one of the worst Presidents in history. This has been happening since the turn of the century and they have been trying to get their hands on our children from a younger and younger age.

        Has anyone taken notice lately of the food shortages in the oil rich country of Venezuela? Once again proof that the socialists/marxists/communists are the economic geniuses they claim to be. How long before they sic the peasants with their Louisville Sluggers (they have gun control in that workers paradise) on the kulaks for causing the problem? We are on the same path once the elites take our guns away and the crony capitalists figure out how to make a fortune off starving us and denying us adequate health care.
        Hey, I’m only kidding. That could never happen here, the planet’s last great hope to stem the coming dark ages.

    The only surprise here is that the dissension among the right will put Hill-a-beans in office to give Oblabla the 3rd term he wants and thinks he deserves.
