DoJ: Fast & Furious Was Definitely Not About Creating A Pretext For Increasing Gun Control
Elijah Cummings: Hey, Let's Expand Fast & Furious To Consider Increasing Gun Control

Actually, tell a lie, I don't know if DoJ has expressly denied this theory. I'm not sure anyone has actually asked.

But either way, a program that deliberately put thousands of illegal arms into the hands of Mexican bandits and did not track those weapons, except via autopsy reports, is somehow morphing into a pretext for increasing gun control.

Hey, I've got a radical new gun control law: The ATF shall not deliberately put thousands of illegal arms into the hands of Mexican bandits and then not track them whatsoever except via autopsy reports.

Anyone up for that law?

Nah. Let's restrict guns generally. Actually cracking down on the specific parties responsible for the sale of these guns -- that would be the ATF -- is too direct a solution.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the leading Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released a report early Thursday titled “Outgunned,” that details how Bureau for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents say gun laws need to be tightened for them to fight organized crime along the U.S.-Mexico border.
