    ATF doubles down.

    Just when I thought the ATF would be totally embarrassed by the poorly conceived, Operation Gunrunner, I see this:

    ATF promotes supervisors from border gun operation - latimes.com

    Seems those running the operation have been promoted.

    From the article: "McMahon was promoted Sunday to deputy assistant director of the ATF's Office of Professional Responsibility and Security Operations — the division that investigates misconduct by employees and other problems.

    Kenneth E. Melson, the ATF's acting director, said in an agency-wide confidential email announcing the promotion that McMahon was among ATF employees being rewarded because of "the skills and abilities they have demonstrated throughout their careers."

    It's official, the BATF is a government agency.

    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    I don’t mean to split hairs here, but there is some confusion in terms that the left are already exploiting.

    GunRUNNER was a legitimate operation started several years ago and it had some success and there was nothing really wrong with it.

    GunWALKER on the other hand is a term coined by David Codrea, the National Gun Rights Examiner for the fiasco of project “Fast and Furious”. This is the project that is now under congressional investigation.

    There is a vast difference between the two.

    You called it.
    I don't see any other explanation. In business they would have been fired.

    Can't have any hit the administration. It's the Chicago way.
