Larry Pratt has been Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for 30 years. GOA is a national membership organization of 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting the second amendment freedom to keep and bear arms as they work to provide legal assistance to those involved in lawsuits with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
This Crosstalk looks at Project Gunrunners, a program that appears to have resulted in firearms that ended up in the hands of Mexicans with the hope that crimes would be committed with them. These firearms would be traceable back to America which would give authorities reason to clamp
down on firearm sales here in the U.S.
Is the ATF really involved in trafficking weapons to the Mexican criminal element? Is there any connection between this project and an international gun-ban treaty being pushed by the Obama administration? You decide when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
