Reports in AZ prove the ATF gun strategy a failure.

"Reporter Lori Jane Gliha and photographer Matt Anzur at KNXV-TV in Phoenix spent months digging into local ties to the controversial ATF "Fast and Furious" case that was run out of the Phoenix ATF office. After the ATF denied Gliha's Freedom of Information Act request for gun trace records, she began investigating the old fashioned way, by building sources. Those sources pointed her to local police department records and eventually, she was able to definitively link assault weapons allowed to "walk" as part of the government's strategy to crime scenes here in Arizona. Weapons were found after drug trafficking busts in Glendale and other drug related crime scenes in Phoenix, proving these weapons did not just go to drug lords in Mexico. They are starting to turn up in communities on the US side of the border as well."
