Always watch for the sleight-of-hand.
Deceptions only work when the deception is something that the deceived want to believe.
I might would buy it, but I believe that it is the only option they have to hide the truth, that F&F was going to manufacture the numbers necessary to prove that many thousands of assault weapons are going from the US to Mexico. I might not believe that with all my heart if the man that wrote the Clinton Assault Weapons Ban wasn't the same man that was running F&F, Dennis Burke.
No one really would want to believe that F&F was to reinstitute the assault weapons ban. Too far-fetched, and Obama has said that he did not want to bring it back. But people would buy another Saddam Hussain type deal, another Osama Bin Ladin deal, etc.
