SpotsCat I believe that "Fast & Furious" was implemented to create the "need" for more gun control by falsely placing blame on America's gun retailers. They did this with long guns already. In fact, there was an e-mail, obtained by Congressional investigators, from Mark Chait to ATF Agent Bill Newell, the manager of "Fast & Furious": "Bill, can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same FFL and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks. Mark R. Chait, Assistant Director Field Operations."
