No, not that bizarre ATF sting operation. This one’s not fast and furious; it’s more like “slow and curious.” It’s the one where the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Squid Tattoos was using mentally disabled people to run phony gun stores. I’m a big law-and-order guy myself, a staunch supporter of police officers at every level, but something just ain’t right over at the ATF.
The formal name of this program was “Operation Fearless,” which demonstrates a dismaying lack of creativity, but that’s not why House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has issued subpoenas. He wants to know more about allegations that facilities used in the operation were abused, merchandise was stolen (including firearms!), mentally handicapped people were involved… and, as Fox News reports, “one operation was located across the street from a middle school.”
