WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A gun found at the scene of a shootout between a Mexican drug cartel and soldiers where a beauty queen died was part of the botched “Fast and Furious” operation, CBS News reports.

Authorities had said that Maria Susana Flores Gamez was likely used as a human shield and that an automatic rifle had been found near her body after the Nov. 23 shootout.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tells CBS News that the Justice Department did not notify Congress that a Fast and Furious firearm was found at the scene in Sinaloa.

CBS News learned the Romanian AK-47-type WASR-10 rifle found near her body was purchased by Uriel Patino at an Arizona gun shop in 2010. Patino is a suspect who allegedly purchased 700 guns while under the ATF’s watch.

    The only thing about F&F that didn’t go according to the government’s plan was, they didn’t count on getting exposed. Government NEVER intended to track those guns in Mexico.

    Sorry Maria, your just a “bump in the road.” Nothing to see here, move along now, courtesy of Barry “knee pads” Obama and Eric “the red” Holder.

    This happened AGAIN!?
    They did leave out the part that she was also “involved” with one of the senior Sinaloa members and exited the vehicle with a weapon in her hands.
    “Fast and Furious” is the gift that just keeps on giving!

    Oh so NOW the Master’s Media finally pays attention to this, BUT only will report the “guns bad” angle and ignore how the guns got there in the first place. That part will be a “non-starter” story or whatever their “pooh-pooh” phrase of the week is.

    The anti-gun fever is being stoked by the communist leaders in this country but will lead to a civil war that the armed forces will hopefully choose the correct side of hisory.

    Who, and I mean which particular person, has to get killed with a F&F weapon before libtard media and their squirrels storm the whitehouse demanding answers?

    I love how the readers on that website are bitching at CBS. And they’re right to do so.

    I dig how they call the CHEAP WASR 10 an “automatic” rifle. But then again who doubts CBS wouldn’t try and make something look worse than it is to fit their agenda?

    The WASR-10 is a Semi Automatic AKM. Pull the trigger once, one shot goes off. The WASR does not have full auto capabilities. Converting your WASR-10 to full auto sounds cool but it would not make sense economically. Nor would it be legal. In fact it would be very, very illegal.

    Any argument with a liberal about gun control should not be allowed to advance until the lib answers the question, what do we do about Obama and Holder who sent guns to cartels which were used to murder 200 people? Don’t let them move on to assault weapon bans, background checks, gun manufacturer liability etc. until they grapple with the fact that Obama and Holder need to be in jail.
