time an armed sociopath goes on a murderous rampage, leftists — before
any facts are even known — quickly and collectively demand additional
gun control measures. But in cities like Chicago, hundreds of lives are
taken every year, mostly by gang members, though the majority of
Americans generally won't find news of their deaths floating across
their television screens. The reason has to do with the circumstances.
The same deafening response to issues like urban violence will be
repeated regarding the scores of people we now know have been murdered
through Barack Obama's Fast and Furious gun control scheme.
According to Judicial Watch, "Justice Department documents [reveal]
that weapons sent from the U.S. into Mexico as part of the Obama
administration's Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program have
been widely used by major Mexican drug cartels. According to the new
records, over the past three years, a total of 94 Fast and Furious
firearms have been recovered in Mexico City and 12 Mexican states, with
the majority being seized in Sonora, Chihuahua and Sinaloa. Of the
weapons recovered, 82 were rifles and 12 were pistols identified as
having been part of the Fast and Furious program. Reports suggest the
Fast and Furious guns are tied to at least 69 killings."
All lives matter. Sadly, the media believes mass killings are worth
covering only when the circumstances surrounding their deaths fit the
narrative. That narrative doesn't include a government-sanctioned
program that resulted in dozens of murders.

Not my title. Hell, the Left don't acknowledge anything that's
contrary to "the mission." I'd call it "Wanted: Brock Obama
and Eric Holder for voluntary manslaughter."
