You know those guns that President Barack Obama’s administration – and Attorney General Eric Holder’s office in particular – facilitated into the hands of Mexican drug cartels during their ill-conceived, poorly executed Fast and Furious operation?
By now, most Americans should know that one of those guns, wielded by one of those members, killed U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry. And it shouldn’t need to be stated that many Mexicans lost their lives as well on account of the America government’s harebrained attempt to turn public opinion against the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment.
But now we have specifics about the latter.
According to Spanish language TV news network, Univision, (translated by ABC News), “On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez.
“Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more wounded before the hit men finally fled.”
The article went on to say that three “of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).”
In other words, three of the guns were deliberately sold to such disgusting savages by the Obama administration, which then proceeded to wait for bodies to start falling – bodies like those of the poor teenagers in Villas de Salvarcar – in order to suit its own selfish, power-hungry, anti-American purposes.
What kind of person intentionally allows hardened criminals to go waltzing away with weapons like that? What kind of person can condone the unnecessary slaughter of innocents just to make a point? What kind of person honestly cares that little about human life?
That kind of person is, sadly, not hard to find these days…
Because there’s one sitting in the Oval Office (or out on the golf course) and another at his desk at the Department of Justice.
