Operation fast and furious was slowing down in deadly to the guns were found at the scene of the killing of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
The agency's dream of gathering guns all transactions into one database failed.
So they instead -- the idea to give drug dealers guns to follow them.

The system family of border agent Terry not so good.
The president assured us that he didn't think his attorney general Eric Holder would have approved a plant like fast and furious really.
He heads the DOJ in the ATF reports to the DOJ.
About this idea.

And using that billion dollars to hire a bunch of Border Patrol agents are stronger border would stop Mexican drug violence and -- gun runners and what.
Could there be -- American hero like border agent Brian Terry.
-- now is former Colorado congressman Republican Tom Tancredo who's also author.
Of the book in mortal danger the battle for America's border and security -- What do you think of that idea to shut down the ATF and use that money for border agents.
I love it and I love it -- should've -- ATF is a great idea in and of itself.
Then using them ready to support a stronger defense on the border is even better use of the -- I think it's a great idea there is no way on God's Green earth.
That anybody would could believe if you know anything about Washington about the way the government works there's no one.
In this country they can believe.
That Eric Holder did not know about operation -- walker nothing like that is going to be put in place.
Without going up the chain of command it is in -- -- and if it did.
Everybody below holder should be fired because that is and in that it is simply be goes against every single rule that operates within that department.
Eric Holder knows no other agency of this government.

Potentially more insidious reason for that -- for operation -- walker.
They wanted guns in Mexico so that they could eventually say look at the blood of guns from the United States -- -- Mexico.
Causing all this violence let's do something about.
About guns in the United States I think that was behind all of -- Are represented is is there are any indication I listen I've read a lot we've heard from mom.
Whistle blowers they said they'd been telling the Department of Justice for a long time that this program is a problem and it should be stopped.
How do we find out if in fact the DOJ or -- couldn knew that -- that there -- there was gonna be you know future violence brought -- by these guns and he did nothing.

Where that where's the justification what does he ATF to tell our viewers -- -- -- are supposed to -- -- well alcohol tobacco and firearms right.

These -- they.
You know we we have an event here every in Colorado every year we.
As independence institute if you have a discover advice and then there's we've -- -- -- and shoot guns smoked cigars pick a little afterwards.
If it's if you know the fact is that ATF has now become politicized -- and -- itself -- it is really involved with as I believe it is.
Trying to advance it caused it to can curtail these this ownership.
The sale and ownership of guns in the United States it definitely should be abolished all right so I think we should at least -- -- -- in your neck of the -- the FT -- firearms.
Tobacco and then alcohol is that okay.
That's right it's buying argues that they're divided by the wake up -- -- I would love and thank you very much of the top ten credit thank you -- -- but the.
