Fast & Furious.

How do you think the stink from that ATF fiasco, is going to affect all of us, in our day-to-day gun buying and sales? Any way at all, or to early to tell?

I will have no effect at all. It wasnít done by one of us peons so thereís no way to spin it that itís the ďgunsĒ fault. Itís a government agency so in the eyes of the Gummyment (law ?) they can do no wrong. The Gumyment never does! No one gets punished and business goes on as usual.

Editorial: Was Fast And Furious A Gun-Control Plot?

ATF Manager says he shared Fast and Furious Info with White House

Similar to Obama's getting elected. A lot of people will assume it's just the way to back-door gun control (and there's no reason to think it isn't) and buy the guns they want NOW, thinking they may not be legally available soon.
I bought my two AK's this year both after "F and F" went public. Since i live in California and you never know what anti-gun measure the dummies running our state (into the ground) are going to ram through next.

If this gets big enough (it's still growing), we could even see a push to defund or dismantle the ATF, either in part or whole. This could really come to happen if Obama loses reelection, and Republicans gain control of the Senate.
