"Fast and Furious" was a government sponsored terror program, which deliberately smuggled weapons to Mexican drug gangs (yes, by the US government). The objective was to enable/create/promote more violence, and THEN blame it on the American citizenry and second amendment to the Constitution. Much of the media, which dutifully parrots anything the government says to them as fact, were duped into believing this frame job against the American people. That is, until some brave and heroic employees broke rank and "blew the whistle".
Here NRA President David Keene offers insight into Eric Holder's Fast and Furious Testimony, and what "Fast and Furious" government-run gun smuggling was really all about.
