Coming to us from the “Reap What Ye Shall Sow Department,” Richard Serrano and the LA Times reports that more guns from the Epic Fail known far and wide as “Fast and Furious” have turned up at eleven more violent crime scenes.

You just knew this was gonna happen. Here we’ve been focusing on the ATF lo these many weeks.
