The “Fast and Furious” gun running scandal still continues to baffle detractors in its scope, as a gun was just found in an incredibly high profile mass shooting case.
It’s really tough to believe:
Yup – Obama ran guns into illegal gun buyer’s hands, and one actually ended up at the awful terrorist attack in Paris.
Here’s more from Judicial Watch:
One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”
A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.
I know this will fuel crazy conspiracy theories, but there really is a simple explanation – illegal guns eventually end up in exactly these kinds of situations because terrorists can’t purchase guns legally.
Still, that’s a hell of a coincidence.
