It was January 30, 2010. Twenty men armed with “assault weapons” entered a house where there were sixty teenagers gathered for a birthday party. They opened fire and by the end of the massacre, the total number of dead was sixteen. It does not seem strange to me that so many who now call for gun control due to the Sandy Hook school massacre have been silent about this other mass murder. I think this is because some of the guns used to kill all of these innocent people were given to the murderers courtesy of the Obama administration. This mass murder, which was aided and abetted by the Obama administration, occurred in Juarez, Mexico. The Obama administration decided to allow guns to be smuggled into Mexico, and they were given to known criminal cartels. The Obama administration has declared executive privilege to avoid releasing all of the records concerning the planning and execution of Operation Fast and Furious. The old question from the Watergate hearings is relevant; what did Holder know and when did he know it should also be asked of Obama.
Indeed, a telling response in November 2011 at a hearing by leading anti-gun nut Dianne Feinstein concerning Operation Fast and Furious is revealing. This is what she said:
“My concern, Mr. Chairman, is there’s been a lot said about Fast and Furious, and perhaps mistakes were made, but I think this hunt for blame doesn’t really speak about the problem,” Feinstein said during the Tuesday hearing. “And the problem is, anybody can walk in and buy anything, .50-caliber weapons, sniper weapons, buy them in large amounts, and send them down to Mexico. So, the question really becomes, what do we do about this?”
“I’ve been here 18 years,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve watched the BATF get beaten up at every turn on the road. And, candidly, it’s just not right.”
Is this the kind of person that one could trust when she would not even condemn the Obama administration’s role in the aforementioned mass murder? Now Vice President Joe Biden is supposed to lead a panel which will consider how to stop these mass killings. Biden has also been uncharacteristically silent about Operation Fast and Furious that generously allowed guns to be smuggled to Mexican drug cartels. The guns that were given to the cartels have also turned up at many crime scenes in Mexico, and Obama guns were were found at the scene where Federal Agent Brian Terry was murdered. Have you ever heard anyone on the gun-control side comment about these Mexican innocents or the American agent? No, you have not. Why would so many who now call for gun control in order to protect children be so silent about this massacre? I had a theory and it was that they did not want to hurt Obama’s chances at re-election. However, now that he has been re-elected, you can throw that theory out because the anti-gun nuts still have not commented on this horror essentially caused by the Obama administration. Could it be that many of those who are now calling for gun control due to the Sandy Hook school massacre really do not care about dead children? I have to conclude that the answer is yes because if they did care about mass-murdered kids, they would have commented on this other incident of mass murder which was aided and abetted by the Obama administration. Many in the media have also been silent about this massacre and Fast and Furious unlike reporters at Univision. Perhaps the anti-gun nuts do not care about Mexicans, but I suspect that those who are silent, as well as their media allies, just want to take away guns from law-abiding Americans, and Obama serves this interest.
The anti-gun nuts also do not comment on the volunteer security guard Jeanne Assam. She was a former police officer who stopped an attempt at a mass killing in Colorado Springs by shooting the assailant after he had killed two and shot two others. This does not fit with the leftist catechism about guns, because an armed person was able to prevent more killings by using her gun. This is why there can be no real compromise with the anti-gun nuts. Deep down, they do not care about innocents who were murdered with American guns supplied to the cartels by Obama and the other loathsome people in his administration. All they want is to take away guns from the law-abiding people step-by-step.
