Pamela Gellar’s “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas was interrupted by two gunmen, one of whom was directly armed by the U.S. government.
Nadir Soofi, one of the would-be murderers shot dead in Garland after an attempted attack, appears to have gotten his firearm as a result of the botched gun running operation Fast and Furious. After realizing that his criminal record would show up on a background check, (drug and assault charges) Soofi went to a gun shop gun shop known for selling illegal guns.
Federal authorities allowed Lone Wolf Trading Co. to sell these illegal firearms with the hopes that they would be able to trace the weapons to drug cartels and other such organizations. Unfortunately, a man with a previous criminal record including assault charges managed to get his hands on a traceable gun provided by the government. It is merely by the grace of God that he didn’t kill anyone that day in Garland.
Soofi’s attempt to purchase this handgun did raise some red flags which put a week-long hold on his ability to acquire the handgun. for some reason, that hold was lifted within 24 hours.
So who is going to be held responsible here? Obviously the gunman is ultimately the reason behind this whole mess, but is the government going to face any backlash for their illegal sale of firearms?
