The left in "mute" mode about the 300 Mexicans killed by "Fast & Furious" guns

Have you seen any marches or articles from "the gun-control" lobby about the 300 people killed in Mexico?

Is the left marching denouncing the Obama administration for "arming" Mexican cartels?  

The left's silence is rather interesting compared to the "heartburn", "indigestion" and "outrage" that we've always heard about human rights or guns killing people.

Bob Owens of PJ Media has been covering "Fast & Furious" for more than a year.  His new post is about the silence from "the pro-gun control" crowd about dead Mexicans:

"The Brady Campaign, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns have refused repeated requests by PJ Media for comment on the hundreds of Mexican citizens believed murdered with firearms provided by the Obama administration.

Operation Fast and Furious involved a coalition of federal agencies facilitating the sale of more than 2,000 firearms to known drug cartel straw purchasers. At times, federal agents ran interference for cartel weapon smugglers, thwarting local law enforcement. The operation collapsed when a number of agents came forward as whistleblowers following the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, dead following a shootout with a cartel group led by an FBI informant.

Mexico Attorney General Marisela Morales has stated that at least 300 murders can be attributed to weapons provided through Operation Fast and Furious, which would make it the deadliest scandal ever involving a U.S. administration."

Like Bob Owens, I am appalled at the silence from the "pro-gun control" groups in the US.

Perhaps they are embarrassed to admit that this program blew up in their faces.  In other words, "Fast & Furious" was never about helping Mexico fight cartels.  It was always about blaming, and ultimately closing, Texas gun shops legally selling arms on our side of the border.

Or perhaps killing Mexicans doesn't rise to the level of a serious issue.

I don't know but the guns are still loose in Mexico and the death toll just keeps going up every day. 

The American left is still on "mute mode".
  Someone in the left should stand  up and call on Pres BO to take ownership of the failed program.  Frankly, Pres BO's lackadaisical attitude is pathetic.   His support of AG Holder is even more bizarre.

We discussed this topic with Fausta Wertz on the second segment of our Tuesday show:
