    Whether true or not this is the most logical reason for the F&F operation I have heard. The US government has been known quite frequently to provide one side of a conflict with arms in return for favors hoping to gain control of a situation in the end. I doubt that anything will come of this in the end as it would cause too many problems for too many high ranking people in our government but I really don't doubt a word of what is in that article.

    Default Reese family not guilty on 24 of the 28 Charges.

    Reese family not guilty on 24 of the 28 Charges.
    The jury did convict three of the four family members of making false statements in connection with the acquisition of firearms.
    REESE TRIAL – Remington Reese Closing Arguments

    This is one of the actual FnF arrests of a Gun Dealer.

    After the Reeses were arrested, U.S. Attorney Ken Gonzales declared, “Those who sell firearms knowing that they will be illegally smuggled into Mexico to arm Mexican cartels share responsibility for the violence that has been devastating Mexico.” Gonzales continued, “This case serves to put firearms dealers on notice that they will be held accountable for any failure to comply with federal firearms laws.

    Now for a statement of my own: Those who sell firearms knowing that they will be illegally smuggled into Mexico to arm Mexican cartels share responsibility for the violence that has been devastating Mexico. The Fast and Furious Investigation serves to put The Dept of Justice on notice that they will be held accountable for any failure to comply with the law.

    Under Article 3 section 3 of the Constitution this could be construed as TREASON. Selling or giving goods that might or will bring harm to your people for your personal gain

    That's how I read it, too. Nothing will come of this though. Washington is a nest of snakes.
    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

    Feds seize family’s guns, money

    Now for a statement of my own: Those who sell firearms knowing that they will be illegally smuggled into Mexico to arm Mexican cartels share responsibility for the violence that has been devastating Mexico. The Fast and Furious Investigation serves to put The Dept of Justice on notice that they will be held accountable for any failure to comply with the law.
    These people were first ordered by ATF to allow straw purchases, and subsequently prosecuted for following those orders. Even though they were acquitted on the most serious charges of gun-running etc., the three family members who were convicted of making false statements still face up to five years in prison. This is a travesty of justice, and is just the kind of thing that will eventually spark either the 2nd American Revolution, or a real Civil War (as opposed to a war of secession that non-thinkers still call "The Civil War").

    It's amazing to me that this country still enjoys as much tranquility as it does with instances such as Ruby Ridge, Waco, myriad examples of SCOTUS departures from constitutional adherence, "under the radar" gun control, government operating by Executive Order and on and on and on, have become so commonplace that nothing seems to surprise us anymore, much less inspire national outrage. And still, there's been no resistance other than "get out and vote!" types of calls to "action" from the right.

    The people caught up in the political prosecution highlighted above are us. It really shouldn't go nearly unnoticed on this or any other gun forum, but stories like these unfortunately do go almost unnoticed on an all-too-regular basis.

    Thanks for the mention and links about it golocx4.

    That's how I read it, too. Nothing will come of this though. Washington is a nest of snakes.

    The only thing that could give me any hope that this country could possibly return to a nation of laws and not men would be for some very high level arrests, impeachments, and incarcerations. This would have to go all the way to the top; our president is up to his eyeballs in this thing that was engineered by his AG. I wouldn't be surprised that there was indeed some intrigue with F&F attempting to generate internecine squabbles amongst the cartels. But, considering the incompetence of this administration and the probable taking of advise from amateur police and military wanna-be's we ended up with the debacle (and the dead) we now have. I wouldn't be surprised that there are other reasons why F&F has turned out the way it has but wouldn't even venture a guess due to the depth of corruption in this government. However, I do believe that F&F certainly has (had) something to do with the reduction or elimination of 2nd Amendment rights.

    But like "kerb" said... nothing will come of this.

    One of Tom Clancy's most recent book was about a scheme where the government supplied weapons and other resources to one Mexican cartel so the other one would get wiped out. It didn't work out so well in the book, either.
    Seems like Tom Clancy had some inside information on the Fast and Furious Scheme!
    I agree, someone has to take out the trash....
