It’s been all quiet on the Fast and Furious front since President Obama won reelection and all hell broke loose in Newtown. Meanwhile, the slaughter south of the border continues apace, with unarmed civilians at the mercy of vicious narco-terrorists and corrupt police and government troops. All armed to the teeth. With official U.S. assistance (State Department-sanctioned military and police sales of fully automatic rifles which “seep” to the bad guys). Part of the coverup: a total blackout on the model and serial number of weapons confiscated by the Mexicans. Information that was publicly available until Uncle Sam’s ATF launched Operation F&F in 2010. But every now and then, for some reason, details make it into the media. Make the jump for an excerpt from a report in processo.com.mx detailing yet another gruesome crime. It includes info on the captured killers’ arsenal . . .
Detainees were confiscated an arsenal of two fragmentation grenades (hand) K-400, ovoid, olive green, with lot numbers: HWB95K605-029 and EC-89E605.

Gun store grenades? And while gun control advocates can bemoan the “easy access” to assault rifles [see: above], clearly it’s time for bat control legislation.
