If a criminal want’s to have a gun, they will. Some of them will come through their crime families/gangs, common friends. Some of them were the one’s stolen from the US Army, along with other much greater and more destructive weapons. Some of them are supplied by the cartels, the anti-gun fear monger elitists supporting all of the US Domestic Terrorist anarchy armies of chaos all across our country send moving trucks filled with them that get handed out to the rioters.
No Gun Law will ever stop any shootings by any criminals.
It just stops us from being able to defend ourselves from all of this insanity.
The number of weapons lost is a small percentage of the total number of weapons. Well, that’s comforting.
No duh they were stolen by criminals. Are you guys trying to morph the narrative to cause fear in the masses?
We need grid lock security all over the u.s.
They ain’t stolen they be selling them and in da hood to
2 Fast 2 Furious
This is so stupid these two girls have no appreciation for facts and looking at things logically and objectively
Grenade launchers are weak. You can just buy a 37mm flare launcher and use it in the same way you would use a 40mm ‘nade launcher.
This fake news because there is no way to do what they are claiming. There is no such thing as a AK 74 rifle in the US military
Mortars, machine guns, bazookas??? Who cares???
Why do they hide the Atomic Bomb components which are missing???
Nothing else matters!
The FBI is fully aware of Terrorist Atomic Bombs coming into USA.
PLEASE!!!! How can this possibly surprise anyone????? I have a great idea, start at the top! The corruption starts with the military industrial complex and everyone profiting from it. People join the military for various reasons, education, patriotism, job training, I doubt many of them join to become criminals. They are promised many things, housing, health care, and a stable life. The dirty reality is they are expected to follow orders no matter what. They are given a salary that keeps them barely above the poverty level, while their leaders live in luxury, money intended to improve their living conditions is stolen and spent on totally wasteful pursuits. These people are witnesses to and victims of horrible atrocities. We have all seen what happens to whistle blowers! If they return home the promises are forgotten. There is no excuse for a veteran to be homeless or ever to be refused medical care. Not in a month a or year, now! Uncovering the sale of 1900 guns is a joke. Take our promises seriously, we have a very sad history of mistreating our veterans, it needs to end now. These same war mongers, profiteers and parasites are even now preventing all legislation that benefits them from being enacted. How can anyone justify trillions going to billionaires, wall street, cruise liners, oil companies, pharmaceutical companies while those need suffer?
"Other 11" and "no title 7" so is "11 other" are tanks and "7 no title" nuclear missiles maybe?
Fund em to buy more weapons….wtf..
What’s news to y’all in common knowledge and understanding where I come from
How did cartels end up with explosive like grenades and rocket launchers someone is getting paid for them to get what they need in military weapons
Stolen how???? Lies
Even though the Obama administration let 50,000 guns go to Mexico from straw purchasers.
Really? How many of those were lost overseas vs weapons gone missing in the USA?
Hey Kristin, it’s an AK 47 not 74, but the question is, where do they get ammo for a M-50/60 or rockets or shells, they don’t come with ammo?
And seriously, Biden is worried about Russia. Look what’s happening in your a$$ Biden.
"Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said in an interview that the armed services can account for 99.999% of their several million firearms." That means the Pentagon admits to having more than 190,000,000 firearms.
Military personnel s were sleeping💤😴?
Did the thieves have a background check?
Stationed in Germany we had a periodic guard duty over an arms and munitions depot; once there was a single hand grenade missing, and the entire battalion pitched tents inside the fence for a month until the soldier responsible confessed.
What’s going on in these American military bases??
Stolen automatic rifles, grenade launchers, machine guns, mortars, high explosives, or anything like that should be a concern to the public.
Looks like ATF needs to figure out its own before messing with civilians the government is garbage america is weak and iam ashamed to say I’m American
I’m sorta wondering why the media is trying so hard to break a story from years ago old news
so if stolen military firearms are ending up with street gangs then why are AK74s being found… is the Russian military here in the US? another mass shooting took place in Chicago yet the news hardly reports on it. i suspect the shooter was the wrong color skin to cover it i suppose. i’d also like more coverage on the G7 and the Southern Boarder.
This report is fake news. Ain’t NO dude in any lower socioeconomic area toting no grenade launcher or M-16A2. These weapons are in the possession of WST! Those militia are toting these guns around.
This is old news, besides, #operationfastandfurious
A long time ago dude was selling vest for 250 an 150 for a grenadine
Obama’s fast and furious
Cant believe some people believe only law enforcement and the military should have guns. Cops and the military can be criminals Too. Ever hear of a court Marshall, or dishonorable discharge
These guns are being sold under the table
Ummm they ummm uhhh uhhhh ummmm umm um um um
Please make and use ALOT of drones and robots to clean up America and our borders. They would help greatly.
Like from fast and furious
Isn’t there gun laws to prevent things like this? O wait criminals by their very nature break the law. Who would have known.
When you don’t increase salary
Veterans have to pay bills 😂🤣
This how you earn 🤣😂
The proud boys forsure
Where is the "ATF"? My bad they’re to focused on infringing on law abiding US citizens 2nd amendment rights. I digress.
Breaking their honor code? Give me a break🤣😜🙃
This has going since the days of Bonnie and Clyde and before that what else is new.
People will join the military, join gangs before or after enlistment. Long story short that’s where it begins.
I’m a Soldier I have this to say, those conducting illicit activities like thos deserve yo be locked up with the key thrown into the field. We swore an oath to protect the US from all enemies foreign and domestic. How you gonna do that if you are the enemy?
No officer, I bought this Predator drone at Best Buy
I say whatever number they give to the media on stolen tax paying Government arms, double it.
