Gunwalker Update: FBI allowed felons to purchase weapons

Whatever happened to their oath to uphold the law?

Feds Silent on How Convicted Felons Bought Guns in ‘Operation Fast and Furious’

By William La Jeunesse & Laura Prabucki | FoxNews

EXCLUSIVE: In the latest chapter of the gunrunning scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, federal officials won’t say how two suspects obtained more than 360 weapons despite criminal records that should have prevented them from buying even one gun.

Under current federal law, people with felony convictions are not permitted to buy weapons, and those with felony arrests are typically flagged while the FBI conducts a thorough background check.

Either the current instant background checks are a feel good program with no actual teeth, or the FBI chose not to enforce Federal Law and allowed hundreds of weapons to flow into the hands of known felons.

The Obama Administration continues to interfere with the investigation.

UPDATE: Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds is also on the case:

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR: How Mexican Killers Got U.S. Guns From Operation “Fast and Furious.” I’m not at all sure that the arming of Mexican cartels was “inadvertent,” and I think we need a special prosecutor.

I agree.  Time and past time for an independent investigation and prosecution under RICO.

UPDATE II: A pair of  gun grabbers legislators is desperately trying to push through new legislation to fix this “problem” by creating more onerous regulations before Gunwalker breaks wide open.
