Killer Guns Supplied by the ATF

Patriotic American,

Once again, the Obama appointee, anti-gun zealot, Andrew Traver, who now heads the ATF, finds himself in real "hot water."

Guns were traced to the killing of an ATF agent, Brian Terry, age 40, when he was gunned down in December; and also ATF Jamie Zapata in February, while patrolling the border. Two assault rifles on an ATF watch list as part of "Fast and Furious" (code name) were found nearby, but both have been ruled out as the murder weapon, officials say.

ATF operations allegedly have helped to supply Mexican drug cartels with weapons, as part of a "controlled trafficking of arms" to Mexican authorities.

Lawmakers in Mexico City are DEMANDING an investigation into a U.S. law enforcement operating that allowed HUNDREDS of weapons to flow into the hands of Mexican drug cartels amid claims from a ranking legislator that at least 150 Mexicans have been killed or wounded by guns trafficked by smugglers under the watch of U.S. agents. Many say this is an ATF cover-up!

The Washington Post reports: "A controversy over tactics used to break up an extensive Mexican gunrunning ring has prompted federal officials to reevaluate an aggressive law enforcement strategy to stop firearms trafficking. The new scrutiny comes after two separate shootings in the past three months in which federal agents were killed and guns recovered by investigators were later traced back to people already under investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is trying to determine whether the gun used in the attack that killed Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata---purchased at a Texas gun store in October---was smuggled into Mexico by buyers who were under investigation by ATF agents. He has asked the ATF why the purchasers of the gun used in the attack on Zapata were not arrested in November, a month after they bought the weapons. Now Mexico also wants a probe into the ATF and guns.

These allegations put at risk the laws that protect every gun-owner in the United States. That's why CCRKBA is on top of this situation!

This ATF operation allegedly helped supply Mexican drug cartels with weapons; and the governments of both countries want the truth!

Last Friday, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico issued a statement on allegations exposed that Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) officials engaged in a controversial intelligence-gathering operation that centered on monitoring and encouraging the sale of thousands of weapons to suspected Mexican drug cartel suppliers.

There appeared to be a potential contradiction between statements of U.S. officials saying that Mexico was aware of the operation and Mexico officials who insist they were not.

However, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico says there is no real contradiction because Mexico was aware of the general operation, nicknamed "Fast and Furious"; but not specifically aware of any alleged "walking" of weapons across the border.

But it begs the question: Can we really trust the judgments by Mr. Traver who was appointed by President Obama during a Congressional recess?

Here is the real truth about Mr. Traver:

He is in favor of banning ALL gun shows
He is opposed to civilian ownership of semi-automatic rifles and shotguns
He is opposed to private firearm sales
He is wanting the Center for Disease Control to have oversight of the firearms industry
This is a DIRECT AFFRONT to those of us who own guns and use them properly. In short, he was distinctive ANTI-GUN credentials!

He has an avowed aversion to assault rifles and membership in anti-gun rights groups.

Mr. Traver is NOT a friend of the people who whole-heartedly believe in the Second Amendment rights in the U.S. Constitution. Yes, that's you and me!

He is an ENEMY of the people, like you and me, who cherish our Second Amendment right to carry guns!

There are approximately 80,000,000 gun owners in the United States who must come against this tyrannical ATF Chief who is against guns. He is an anti-gun zealot with a distinctive anti-gun bias. And it shows.

Believe me, your Second Amendment rights are still at stake. Mr. Obama and his co-horts in the ATF want to strip you of your guns. Not only is the Head ATF person like this, but President Obama is the same. It is a sad day for American gun-owners.

That's why we must remain strong. That's why we must remain aligned together.

Our golden rule is the Second Amendment. That will keep us strong in our ongoing fight to keep our private guns:


And you and I shall never, ever, ever forget that right!

Will you stand with us, even financially, in this last-ditch fight for our rights?

John Dobson, an ATF agent in Phoenix who worked on the Fast and Furious effort and became alarmed enough to alert Senate investigators, said in an interview that the number of guns sold to known traffickers under the eyes of the ATF was so large that it was "impossible" the agency didn't know the weapons were going to Mexico.

Dobson said the number of guns sold under the investigation grew dramatically---exceeding 1,500 by last October---and none of the traffickers were being arrested. "You keep hearing, 'It was a sting operation gone bad.' Or, 'We lost some guns.' That's not it. It was intentional and deliberate," Dobson said.

Hopefully, with your assistance in communicating via fax to U.S. Congressmen, we will find out whether or not this is an ATF Cover-Up. Our media efforts will also make a very large difference. Please support our national media efforts today.

Will you help us today?

U.S. Senator Grassley echoes our thoughts: "Asking cooperating gun dealers to arm cartels and bandits without control of the weapons or knowledge of their whereabouts is an extremely risky strategy."

I look forward to hearing from you shortly, so we can assist in getting to the bottom of this; and to make sure that our Second Amendment rights belong to US!

Please give the largest gift that you possibly can to CCRKBA as we EXPOSE this complete violation of our Second Amendment of our United States Constitution.
