The Office of Inspector General report on Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking released Wednesday included a significant portion of its findings discussing the Operation Wide Receiver gun trafficking investigation from the previous administration, including numerous references to a Tucson-based FFL acting as a Good Samaritan informant who had contacted ATF over a suspected straw purchaser and who then agreed to assist the Bureau in obtaining evidence. Regular readers of this column know that individual was Federal Firearms Licensee Mike Detty, the subject of numerous Gun Rights Examiner reports that have now been substantially corroborated by this weeks OIG release.
Responding to inquiries about his impressions of the report, Detty shared his candid observations with Gun Rights Examiner.
