Conservative bloggers and pundits — as well as a handful of reporters in the mainstream media — have been inquiring into the administration’s “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal, “the only border gun operation that was undertaken with the full intention of the straw-purchased guns leaving the control of law enforcement officers and reaching the armories of drug cartel murderers.” This operation was run out of the Obama Justice Department.
So, naturally, we should be pleased when the nation’s one-time paper of record takes on gun-running. Only problem is is that they’re faulting the Commonwealth of Virginia for repealing its law limiting gun purchases to one per month: “The retreat means gunrunners can once again stock up in Virginia without inhibition and then deal guns in neighboring states where sales are more restricted.”
Sounds like Times editors must have decried the administration’s program to allow representatives of Mexican drug cartels to stock up in Arizona with their active encouragement and then use this guns in a neighboring nation. And demanded that the administration cooperate fully in the House investigation of the program.
