While awaiting the studio call to appear on American Trigger Sports Network Television in Houston on Dec. 17, Sean C. Young, Mark Walters’ producer for Armed American Radio, asked me to join him for an impromptu on-camera interview dealing with the origins and developments of the Fast and Furious gunwalking story.
I have been dealing with Sean for some time now–for as long as I’ve known Mark, but over the phone, as his operations are based in Dallas. It was great to finally spend some time with him in person, and I’m grateful he made the 4-hour drive to Houston so that we could. I’m glad he did. The guy’s a patriot, and a genuinely warm and nice man.
See the sidebar media player for our interview. Young does make one misassumption in his introduction–the guns found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry traced back to Lone Wolf Trading Company in Glendale, AZ, not Dallas, TX, as Gun Rights Examiner demonstrated in a Feb. 9, 2011 post, presenting–at the time–an exclusive on a detailed document obtained from a confidential source that included traced purchase information. The confusion over Texas is understandable, as that’s where the gun that killed ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was traced back to, and indeed, as we’ve seen time and again here at Gun Rights Examiner and at Mike Vanderboegh’s Sipsey Street Irregulars blog, gunwalking has hardly been confined to ATF’s Phoenix field division, mainstream media and administration talking points notwithstanding.
UPDATE: Mr. Young has issued a corrected version of his video, which I have posted in the sidebar media player.

- A Journalist’s Guide to ‘Project Gunwalker’ for a complete list with links of independent investigative reporting and commentary done to date by Sipsey Street Irregulars and Gun Rights Examiner. Note to newcomers to this story: “Project Gunrunner” is the name ATF assigned to its Southwest Border Initiative to interdict gun smuggling to Mexico. “Project Gunwalker” is the name I assigned to the scandal after allegations by agents that monitored guns were allowed to fall into criminal hands on both sides of the border through a surveillance process termed “walking” surfaced.
Spead the word
Regular readers: If you agree that mainstream press coverage of the gun rights issue demands a counter-balance, please help me spread the word by sharing Gun Rights Examiner links with your friends via emails, and in online discussion boards, blogs, social media sites, etc. Then get more commentary at The War on Guns: Notes from the Resistance.
