Citizen Asks ATF: Do I Need a Federal Firearms License to Sell Thousands of Guns to Mexican Cartels?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has posted a link to their Facebook page clarifying requirements for people selling guns to obtain a Federal Firearms License. The link was posted after President Obama released new executive actions on gun control this week. My buddy over at the The Patriot Perspective caught an important question in the comment section. 

 

Well played, Bre Ve.

Of course the reference is to Operation Fast and Furious, when ATF (under guidance and direction from the Department of Justice) purposely sold thousands of firearms to Mexican cartels between 2009 and 2010. The result? Thousands of lost guns, the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the slaughter of hundreds of Mexican citizens.
