Sheila Jackson Lee blames Bush for Fast and Furious

...Attempts by Democrats to pin the Fast and Furious operation on Bush, however, don’t stand.

...To the contrary, Fast & Furious involved uncontrolled deliveries — of thousands of weapons.
 It was an utterly heedless program in which the feds allowed these guns to be sold to straw purchasers — often leaning on reluctant gun dealers to make the sales.
The straw purchasers were not followed by close physical surveillance; they were freely permitted to bulk transfer the guns to, among others, Mexican drug gangs and other violent criminals — with no agents on hand to swoop in, make arrests, and grab the firearms.
 The inevitable result of this was that the guns have been used (and will continue to be used) in many crimes, including the murder of Brian Terry, a U.S. border patrol agent.

I just wish whenever Americans see Obama exploiting the families of Sandy Hook or otherwise trying to take away the right of citizens to keep and bear arms, that they would remember Fast and Furious and all the guns that he and Eric Holder arranged to have fall into the hands of  the Mexican Mafia.
