  1. Meanwhile sooo many people are still walking around Scott Free!
    Aaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnd if the Epstein List ever saw daylight you’d have to build a separate prison to house all the politicians and “Elites”!!

  2. How many ATF agents have gone to jail for this?
    Answer none, just following orders. So were the Nazis.
    Sending thousands of guns South killing hundreds of Mexicans and some Americans. No chain of custody on any of the weapons.

  3. Bad luck for that Mexican. He could have killed 100 of his countrymen with that gun and faced no consequences.

    OTOH those responsible for Terrys’ and all those other deaths will never be held to account.

    Imagine plotting this caper out!? Let’s funnel 1,000s of weapons ILLEGALLY into the hands of the cartel and then blame the “lax” gun laws here so we can move the ball farther into confiscation territory…mmmK? Cause that’s exactly their reasoning.

  4. I thought leftists were all about going after gun manufacturers and gun dealers who provided weapons to murderers. I guess not so much, depending on who the enablers are.

  5. @ Dr. Hambone,
    “Eric Holder should be in Super Max.”
    Eric Holder should be dangling at the end of a rope next to the Kenyan long-legged mac daddy.

  6. How many years did fast and furious ring leader Eric Holder get?? Huh?!?
    Obama’s Attorney General Eric Hold was a big time gun runner flooding Mexico with guns. Some which were used to kill Americans. Charge Holder!!!
