Did Garland Jihadist Get a Gun Through Fast and Furious?
To date, no one has been held to account for Obama’s gunrunning scandal.
When Nadir Soofi attacked the Muhammad art show in Garland, Texas, he may have used a gun the federal government allowed to walk into his hands as part of the infamous Fast and Furious sting. Eric Holder’s Justice Department let American guns float into the hands of Mexican cartels in hopes of tracking the guns through their serial numbers. Instead of an effective crackdown on organized crime, however, the DOJ has the blood of hundreds of Mexicans and at least two American agents on its hands. In 2010, the Islamic terrorist bought a 9mm handgun at Lone Wolf Trading Co. (ironic name, no?), one of the businesses where the ATF was running the sting. While Soofi said he wanted the gun to protect his pizza restaurant, he had a previous criminal record. The Feds placed Soofi’s purchase on a seven-day hold, but mysteriously the hold was cleared after 24-hours. The FBI has not released the serial numbers of the weapons Soofi used. In July, Barack Obama told an interviewer, “One area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws.” Here’s a common-sense idea: Uphold the laws that, when enforced, keeps guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists. Meanwhile, to date, no one has been held to account for Fast and Furious.
