Border shootout: Dept. of Justice denies gun claim

The U.S. Justice Department denies a claim that two guns sold in purchases sanctioned by federal firearms agents were later used in a shootout that left a Border Patrol agent dead near the Arizona-Mexico border.

Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich says in a letter obtained Tuesday by the Associated Press that the claim is false. The letter was written to U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa.

Grassley has said he received information that appeared to partially corroborate the claim received by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee about the guns.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was waiting with other agents on Dec. 14 near the Arizona border city of Nogales when a shootout with bandits erupted. Terry died in the attack.

So….when is someone going to say which gun fired the bullet that killed Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry? And where did that gun come from?

Here is the letter from DOJ to Senator Grassley:

Translated…”Senator…go pound sand”.

Here are Senator Grassley’s letters.
