Faster and Furiouser

Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation

I wonder how many other attacks on U.S. soil are traceable to these transactions?

(Probably not too many, as difficult as it is to bring illegal stuff across the border…)

Sigh

  1. FTA: 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.

    Couple of problems I have with this part.
    1. According to the documentation I’ve seen, Lone Wolf didn’t sell “illegal firearms”. They sold LEGAL firearms to straw buyers with the approval of ATF and Fed prosecutors. The *straw purchase* was illegal but the weapon itself was not. Had ATF actually tracked and seized the guns, (something that was never really part of the plan), that weapon could have been resold quite legally to any gun shop or citizen.
    2. *Misdemeanor* drug or assault charges are not prohibitions in the gun buying universe. The 4473 asks if you are “a user of or addicted to” not, “have you ever used”. The only misdemeanor that can get you prohibited is a domestic violence charge. (unless you’re a LEO, then go right ahead)
