Traction on ATFgate?

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley is looking at claims that guns illegally transferred under ATF authorization were used to kill Border Patrol agent.

A U.S. senator is examining a claim that two guns sold in purchases sanctioned by federal firearms agents were later used in a December shootout that left a Border Patrol agent dead near the Arizona-Mexico border.

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa said in a letter provided Monday to The Associated Press he had received information that appears to partially corroborate the claim received by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee about the guns.

Somehow the ATF has managed to stay in existence despite it’s long record of abuse and failure. I hope this is the nail that puts that out of control agency out of business.

    Nope … just a few rogue agents.

    Nothing to see here …. move along.

    Not only will this not do a thing to curtail or even shrink the ATF, but even if the ‘rogue’ agents involved do get any sort of wrist-slapping, should they actually be terminated they can always get jobs as shills for HS Precision.

    Woodsman, HS has higher standards for their shills. Gunrunners need not apply, they only use assassins.
