USA Today itself is blaming the “gun lobby,” for gun smuggling to Mexico, with only passing mention of ATF being responsible. Their article today on Fast and Furious doesn’t seem to suggest there’s much to blame, except maybe the straw buyer.
But they did at least give NRA a say:
That must be some form! The administration claims it will help stop cartels from bringing drugs and mayhem to our country. Really?
Can this form also leap tall buildings in a single bound? President Obama must be kidding.
I find Wayne’s public rhetoric often sounds a bit contrived, but I think mockery is absolutely the correct way to deal with this, and the messaging here is good. The idea that you’re going to disarm drug trafficking networks with billions of dollars is absolutely ludicrous. Laughably ludicrous.
