Well what a surprise more Fast & Furious guns continue to be found in Mexico leaving one heck of a body count. How many guns did the admin hand over to Mexican criminals and the drug cartels in a scheme to usurp the Second Amendment? That my friends is the “why” to William La Jeunesse’s question.
The obama regime was trying to create a crisis to justify heavy gun control to usurp the Second Amendment and take out gun rights away.

The fact that no one (incl Eric Holder found in contempt) within the obama imperial regime to this day hasn’t been held responsible is proof this nation is a Banana Republic (Clinton not being prosecuted will be confirmation).

Fast and Furious weapons have been implicated in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of other innocents in Mexico…more
