‘Fast & Furious’ .50-Caliber Rifle Found in ‘El Chapo’ Raid

So not only was Fast & Furious a stupid idea, but we put weapons capable of taking down a helicopter in there too.

Liberals claim they don’t like guns, but gave all these high powered weapons to criminals.

It’s almost like they were hoping they’d be used for high profile crimes so they could pointed to for a reason for gun control. And that my friends is the simpled minded liberals in power.

A .50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

A .50-caliber is a massive rifle that can stop a car or, as it was intended, take down a helicopter.

After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one Mexican marine, officials found a number of weapons inside the house where Guzman was staying, including the rifle, officials said.

When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.

Federal officials told Fox News they are not sure how many of the weapons seized from Guzman’s house actually originated in the U.S. and where they were purchased, but are investigating.

Out of the roughly 2,000 weapons sold through Fast and Furious, 34 were .50-caliber rifles that can take down a helicopter, according to officials.

Federal law enforcement sources told Fox News that ‘El Chapo’ would put his guardsmen on hilltops to be on guard for Mexican police helicopters that would fly through valleys conducting raids. The sole purpose of the guardsmen would be to shoot down those helicopters, sources said.

Liberals put innocent people at risk with not only their schemes but their policies.

Their utopia view of big government controlling everything while providing what they believe are your needs is a recipe for tyranny.
