In the Fronteras interview, Coulson also claimed ATF knew that what has come to be known as the “90% lie” was a myth. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and others had been pushing the line that 90% of guns seized in Mexico came from the U.S.

“Among federal law enforcement, that became somewhat of a joke,” Coulson said. “We all knew that was whatever weapons the Mexican government decided to follow or trace back to the U.S. and never took into account the weapons that came in from Central America, from other countries around the world.”
This myth was behind the Justice Department announcement last April 25 that it was making 8,500 gun stores in Arizona, California, Texas and New Mexico report individual purchases of multiple rifles of greater than .22 caliber by law-abiding American citizens to the ATF because — get this — such guns are “frequently recovered at violent crime scenes near the Southwest border.”
This corroborates previous evidence demonstrating that Fast and Furious was nothing more than a sham operation meant to create an excuse to enact more gun control in this country.
Americans seem to believe that they can hold the government responsible through voting, protesting, petitioning, and writing their “representatives.” These beliefs are false because if the populace make too much of a fuss about something the government simple goes from using overt tactics to covert tactics. Passing gun control laws in this country has become far more difficult today than it was back in the heydays of the 1990s. Members of the government, still wanting to disarm the populace, know passing gun control laws is akin to political suicide so they’ve changed their tactics. Instead of passing bills that decree further restrictions on gun ownership they are using their already possessed regulatory power and creating false flag incidents to justify the new regulations.
I realize many people will simply label me a conspiracy theorist (something I’m not, in general I’m very skeptical) for the claims I’ve just made but the proof supports Fast and Furious being a false flag operation so, at the very least, I’m vindicated on this issue.
