Guns Across the Border

Just finished this book by Mike Detty where he helped the ATF in their Wide Receiver operation. This was a predecessor to Fast and Furious He was a FFL dealer who helped the ATF in Wide Receiver, but it turns out that what ATF was doing was not trying to stop the cartels, but rather get American guns into Mexico to aid in the attempt at getting an Assault Weapons ban here. It really shows how corrupt, lazy, sloppy, self-protecting civil servants are. It also shows that government cannot be trusted,
Here literally thousands of guns were smuggled across the border with ATF permission, not to catch the cartels but for political reasons to ban assault weapons. The ATF used Mike's patriotic help and risk and then through him under the bus. A good read!
