Today's Broadcast is dedicated In Loving Memory of :
Lance Cpl. John J. Mattek Jr.- 24, of Stevens Point, Wis.; assigned to the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 2, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; died June 13, 2005 of wounds sustained in an explosion June 8 while conducting combat operations against enemy forces in Anbar province, Iraq.

In 2009, the Phoenix division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) initiated Operation Fast and Furious. This policy was designed to let guns "walk" over the U.S.-Mexican border. The hope was that the weapons could be tracked down once they got into the hands of drug cartels.


Operation Fast & Furious allowed over 2,000 assault weapons to be sold to known and suspected gun runners to take across the border until 2010. As of now, the weapons that claimed the lives of two Americans and over 200 Mexicans have been directly traced back to the guns allowed to "walk" across the border through Operation Fast and Furious.

The ATF Phoenix division was always incapable of tracking down the weapons, and no justification has been provided for how the conception of this critically ill-advised & harmful operation was possible.Is this a plot by the Obama Administration to limit gun rights for us citizens?
