Project Gunrunner: Gun Control the Chicago Way?

By Doug Book, staff writer

We owe John Dodson a great deal of gratitude, here’s why.  

On March 30th, Barack Obama assured gun confiscation advocate Sarah Brady of his ongoing efforts to undermine the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Obama told Brady during her visit at the White House. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Of course, the meaning of “under the radar” to a skilled practitioner of “The Chicago Way” will bear little resemblance to any definition recognizable to the average individual. It will translate into operations which are corrupt, underhanded, bereft of common decency and perhaps regard for human life and most importantly, there will be an appearance of “noble intent” should the schemes be discovered.

Enter Projects Gunrunner, Fast and Furious and John Dodson

Originally exposed in early March by ATF employee and whistle blower John Dodson, these ATF intrigues involved both the transfer of at least 2000 weapons to straw purchasers acting for Mexican drug cartels and their subsequent transport into Mexico. Last December, an AK 47, later identified as one of the Gunrunner rifles, was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. And in February, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was murdered in Mexico, the probable victim of a weapon sold in the Fast and Furious operation.

What is the Obama Regime’s ready explanation? Projects Gunrunner and Fast and Furious were sting operations designed to closely monitor the practice of illicit arms distribution. The “head villains” would be identified and arrested and the weapons reclaimed. Of course, it didn’t work out that way.

But suppose Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Barack Obama had made a little “under the radar” deal.

What if Obama, through A.G. Eric Holder, instructed fellow enemies of the 2nd Amendment at the ATF to increase the volume of weapons placed into the hands of Mexican cartel members. As more guns involved in criminal activity would eventually be traced via serial number to US distributors, two things would happen: the left’s deadly chicanery would make its inevitable demands for tougher US gun legislation appear legitimate and necessary; and Felipe Calderon could expect billions in aid from US taxpayers as America would, of course, be held responsible for the increased violence of the drug trade south of the border.

This scenario creates a win-win for these classy national leaders. Thankfully, the courageous John Dodson spoiled Obama’s end of the deal. Let’s hope the Grassley/Issa Congressional Gunrunner investigations do even greater damage to the Oval Office Conspirator in Chief.

  1. Hello,
    We as a nation will never, no never get a straight answer from this Att. Gen. I mean he is the one in Bill Clintons cabinet that I believe that helped get those domestic terrorist out of prison as soon as it was time for good old "SLICK-WILLY" to leave dodge if I am not wrong here. If I am please someone correct me. This man-[ERIC HOLDER]-Scares the crap out of me. He has lied from day one, and he will go out lying.

  2. Be careful, words mean things. Project Gunrunner was started under the Bush administration. Straw gun buyers were followed, arrested and the guns seized.

    Project Fast and Furious was under the Obama administration. Straw gun buyers were followed, NOT arrested and the guns NOT seized.

    The MSM and Democrats would like you to get the two mixed up. Do Not.

    1. Excellent point Peter! I was not aware of that. Not only are the articles in this entire web site interesting, but also, commentators such as Peter, very often serve up some additional depth and a different slant.
      Well done!
