Proof That Fast & Furious Was Done To Promote Gun Control
No Lawyers--Only Guns and Money has an image of an email between two of the BATF officials in which they make it clear that Fast & Furious was to provide anecdotal evidence in support of the firearm sales reporting requirement just imposed by executive order. That requirement alone isn't so bad (although it is a violation of federal law, but what does Obama care about that?), but it does provide pretty strong evidence that Fast & Furious was not just stupid, and illegal, but done for an improper purpose. Arms and the Law makes a good case that this was a violation of the Arms Control Export Act.
