    This Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011 picture shows part of a cache of seized weapons displayed at a news conference in Phoenix. The ATF is under fire over a Phoenix-based gun-trafficking investigation called "Fast and Furious," in which agents allowed hundreds of guns into the hands of straw purchasers in hopes of making a bigger case. Two of those weapons were found in December at the fatal shooting of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, igniting a scandal that has resulted in a congressional investigation and review by the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General.

    Rifles, some that have been smuggled into Mexico, which were confiscated in crimes and are stored as evidence for trial or waiting to be melted down, are displayed in a "vault" at the local office of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) in Phoenix, Arizona, July 6, 2007. A war without quarter for control of cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin trafficking routes has killed 1,300 people this year in Mexico, and has created a huge demand among rival drug gangs for weapons of all kinds, authorities say.
