Law Enforcement Sources: Gun Used in Paris Terrorist Attacks Came from Phoenix

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations—for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic—but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual. Instead, ATF leaders went out of their way to keep the information under the radar and ensure that the gun owner’s identity was “kept quiet,” according to law enforcement sources involved with the case. “Agents were told, in the process of taking the fully auto, not to anger the seller to prevent him from going public,” a veteran law enforcement official told Judicial Watch.

    Hillary and Holder ought to share the opposite ends of a single rope for Fast and Furious -- That way they could kick each other as they gasp their last, swinging over the Mall, for inflicting this grievous abuse upon us, upon the citizens of Mexico, and now upon the People of France, also.

    And at last we see, perhaps, one of the most fundamental underlying reasons why Obama wanted Fast and Furious to run as long and as far as possible -- to arm muslim jihadists with American arms, in places where schemes such as the Benghazi affair could not reach.

    You have to admit, being able to claim that American arms made it to Europe and were used there for an act of terror, certainly gives credence to the popular liberal view that “arms control must be global in scope, to have truly beneficial effects for society”…

    Corporate charters were never intended to be a commonplace affair in the US, as they have been for 600+years in Europe -- originally granted by Kings, as an exclusive right to do either 1) a specific class of business, i.e. ship’s captains are granted a “Commission” to engage in international trade, or 2) the exclusive right to possession and doing business in a particular area or territory -- i.e. a “Land Grant” such as the American Colonies originally were.

    “Operating a ship without the Grant of Commission by a King” is the original meaning of “privateer”, i.e. “pirate”. It originally had nothing to do with the (real) crime of seizing other ships at sea, or any such malum in se, it was simply about licensure… another way of saying that the King had absolute control of the markets -- who could participate in them, and how much product there would be, and at what price it could be sold.

    This is where we today get phrases such as “Pirate Radio”, i.e. operating a radio station without a grant of license…

    Under the law of Kings, you can do nothing without Grant (license) from the King -- and the King always gets his cut of the deal, up front, in exchange for his Grant of License. This is what the oligarchs aspire to restore, for themselves. And this is *exactly* how and why they interpret the ‘commerce clause’ of our Constitution the way that they do.

    Examined in this light, it makes perfect sense, now doesn’t it?
