#1 There is no conflict between Obama's gun control ideas and F&F. He was just trying to keep the guns out of American hands.

#2 Holder and our DoJ were picking cartel favorites with F&F. They're picking favorites with 'gun control' here in the States as well. Unfortunately, both government picks are bad guys.

#3 Of course he doesn't want those documents to see the light of day.
Obama and his entire staff are guilty as sin.

#4 Most transparent admin evah! But don't bother trying to gin up some outrage. Your average NPR listener has no idea F&F even exists. Thank you mainstream media!

#5 Tell me again what vital national security interests trump the FOIA requirements be met by the 'most open and transparent' government in history? /sarc off

#6 @ P@K: Could it possibly be the planting of US made weapons purchased at Gun Shops and Gun Shows in the SW, which could be captured later in combined US and Mexican Law Enforcement (LE) raids ?

#7 When Sarah Palin was still governor of Alaska the donks used a continuous series of frivolous FOIA requests to harass her and Alaska's government. Now the shoe's on the other foot. How does it feel, Champ?

#8 In Sarah's case I don't think those were FOIA requests but actual lawsuits which the governor was required, by law, to respond to.
Kind of like a Denial of Service attack.

#9 I read in her book about how her staff was kept constantly busy making copies of thousands of documents to comply with the requests to the point where they couldn't get any of the state's business done.

#10 Wonder if there is a tie in (document wise) with the ICE brothel shutdown today???

#13 "Tomorrow (1/19/13) is Firearm Appreciation Day"
For those of us who have a firearm (and don't want/need/can't afford another), any suggestions on what we can do to show our appreciation tomorrow, John? Guess I could buy more ammo, but I'm pretty well stocked up now.

#14 Spousal unit is out trying to buy some more ammo right now. Store was supposed to have a shipment in today. We'll see.

#15 You're a brave, trusting soul Glen. I've kept mine away from guns and ammo since the incident our wedding.

#16 Many Ethics complaints were made against Gov Palin as a harassment tactic. It tied up her and her staff so that they could not get things done.

#17 Fast and Furious is just a small part of the weapons to create a crisis scheme. The State Department ran a much larger operation out of Texas which supplied the Zetas. Further our government has supplied weapons to violent groups everywhere in Central America.
Unfortunately this is just a small window of how far Washington has disregarded the entire body of National and International laws. There presently appears to be no effective means left to stop or even slow down the collapse of our integrity as a nation. Unfortunately the American people have always tended to sit back and do nothing until that certain tipping point where they come off their couches and over-react. Among the many things this administration does not understand about this country, we the people are at that tipping point. The firearms purchases in the last two months would indicate the average person in America does not believe this aborition of our government will end peaceably.
As for me I sit back (clinging to my bible and guns)with the full faith and confidence that when every socialist/communist/utopian/movement(SCUM)has taken over the first people they must eliminate, will be their facilitators on every level.

I think the most likely explanation for that shutdown was someone missed their protection payment.
The State Department ran a much larger operation out of Texas which supplied the Zetas. Further our government has supplied weapons to violent groups everywhere in Central America.
They were also running a similar program out of Indianapolis.

#19 Nope. No ammo came in. Have brass, powder & primers, but none of the right bullets, so can't even reload.
Posted by Glenmore 2013-01-18 15:52||
#20 Don't despair Glen. Tomorrow is another day and reloading.... "is the best revenge".

Firearms and ammo are hard to get right now because many citizens sense what is going on or anticipate what may come. So drink a toast or give a silent thanks to the Founding Father's wisdom and foresight when they put forth an inspired 2nd Amendment in our Constitution to prevent tyranny from abroad or from within. Contrary to the beliefs of some (not those at this site), the 2nd is not about hunting, plinking or target-shooting.
