Yesterday afternoon, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms released firearms tracing data to the press from Mexico between the years 2007-2011 during a roundtable discussion and presentation given by ATF Special Agent John Hageman. The data was released at ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. Reporters were allowed to bring pen and paper, but were prohibited from bringing computers or recording devices. When we arrived, despite prohibiting the use of computers, ATF gave us a flashdrive.

“70%”

That’s the percentage of guns traced in Mexico to United States sources or Federal Firearms Licensees [gun dealers] according to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

From the text:

"The majority of the sales linked back to the U.S. according to this trace data, actually come from government to government sales, not from normal sales made in American gun shops.

Despite this fact, anti-gun groups and members of Congress use this misleading data to push for more gun control and regulations on retail stores."

:cool:

Surprised? Why. The atf is owned and operated by the domestic terrorist current masquerading as the chief executive of the nation. He says, "Hop!" The atf ask, "How high?"

I'm not surprised.

The waffen BATFEces thugs lie on affidavits, lie in court under oath, manufacture or destroy evidence depending on what suits their purpose and have never been held accountable for any of the crimes they've committed.

Why would they start telling the truth now?

They will not be held accountable. To follow your very apt metaphor, the fuhrer wouldn't like it.
