You're a good man, Daniel Ballard.

Good on you for manning up.

I must admit that I haven't paid too much attention to this issue mostly because of the absolute hysterics that rightwingers have been exhibiting, which usually means, to me, that there is nothing there to be outraged about.

Thanks for this post. I learned more about this issue and I appreciate it.

I am unsurprised at this. The real tragedy is that the truth coming out will make a difference only to a rather small number of people who, like you, are interested in truth over partisan politics. There are many out there screaming bloody murder that won't change their minds, alas.

re: #1 Obdicut

Thank you. What gets me is the internal strife at ATF that led to this. Generally whistle blowers form agencies can be trusted to a degree. I think the prosecutors office needs some retraining frankly. maybe a personnel change is in order.

The other thing you have to wonder is if unfilled Fed vacancies from GOP blockage played into the delays.

Dunno. ATF is a little like state dept-Their mid-upper management are often career guys that see Presidents come and go. The relationship with Justice plays a part too. Most of the laws they enforce are anything but new. Frankly I'm really surprised at the reluctance to contact and perhaps arrest straw buyers.

It takes a person of character to post something like this. I sure wish all (or at least MOST) gun owners were as serious and knowledgable about safety as you.

Thank you. My loyalty is to the facts. Only the facts can guide us. Not politics.

re: #9 Daniel Ballard

Thanks for this post, Daniel. You'll probably catch a lot of shit from the usual suspects.

re: #10 Charles Johnson

You are welcome, and thanks for placing it in the featured column. As to the reactions, well at a Tao-Confucian temple they taught me the secrets to simple happiness are liking what you already have, and growing all the right callouses in all the right places. :-)

re: #11 Daniel Ballard

This is one of the best places I've found to build up calluses. ;)

So true, and I needed them here yesterday, I'm the designated Salmon on Voter ID. (Swimming upstream, against the flow here and against the GOP too)

I'm just here to add my 'way to go DB/RWC' to the mix.

This whole story is a sweeping indictment of the main stream media.
Many of them have been bullied into covering this in an inappropriate manner by Fox news.

They literally called out other networks and detailed the exact number of minutes that have been spent on coverage. A few outlets actually refused to cover it until the contempt of congress charge from Issa.

It is disgusting and CBS should be singled out as being totally irresponsible.

I appreciate your integrity Daniel. Wish that a few news outlets would follow your lead.

So, just a *smooch* for "doing the right thing". Which is education!
