Here's the exchange, from -- of all places, Fox News.
Chris Wallace: Do you have any evidence that White House officials were involved in these decisions, that they knowingly misled Congress, and are involved in a cover-up?
Car Thief Darrell Issa: No we don't.
The "fast and furious" scheme to let guns get into the hands of Mexican drug lords was begun during the Bush administration, and was actually stopped by US Attorney General Eric Holder. That little fact never seems to get in the way of the Regressive republicans' bizarre conspiracy theory that maintains that it was the Obama administration that purposely allowed automatic assault weapons to be handed to criminals in Mexico so that a sudden surge in gun-related deaths would turn the American public in favor of eliminating the Second Amendment and the confiscation of all firearms. See how crazy this is? They actually believe President Obama purposely gave away guns so that he'd have an excuse to take away everybody's guns.
Let's remember that President Obama has never uttered a word about gun restrictions of any kind. Indeed, he was the one who signed the law allowing guns to be taken into national parks. But all this gun freedom, according to Wayne La Pierre of the National Rifle Association, is to lull you into a false sense of security. According to this nutjob, the fact that President Obama hasn't taken all your guns away is proof that he's going to take all your guns away in his second term.
