As usual, our resident Baboon is adding his two cents of dog shit! The ATF ran a whole series of "gunwalking" sting operations between 2006 and 2011 starting in Tucson and then moving the operations to Phoenix under the supervision of William Newell who later started operation “Fast and Furious’. It started small, to the objections of many involved in it, as it grew bigger and bigger with each new operation. The goal was to track the firearms as they were transferred to higher-level traffickers and key figures in Mexican cartels, in theory leading to their arrests and the dismantling of the cartels. Firearms "walked" by the ATF have been found at violent crime scenes on both sides of the Mexico–United States border ever since its inception in 2006, including the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one U.S. federal agent. Eventually dissenting ATF agents came forward to Congress in response to having become increasingly controversial in both countries, and diplomatic relations have been damaged as a result. Curiously, the very Gov’t official who finally put an end to the highly questionable program is now being prosecuted for it – is this a great country or what?!
There are rumors of "gunwalking" in at least 10 cities in five states. The most widely known and controversial operations being the ATF's Phoenix AZ field division.
