Same ATF that gave guns to Mexican Drug Cartels closes gun shop that LEGALLY sold gun to Newtown Shooter's mother

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) was found to be responsible for telling gun store owners in Arizona to sell high capacity, semi-automatic weapons (AK-47's and .50 Cal) to straw purchasers, whom they knew would 'walk' those guns into Mexico. Those thousands of guns were placed into the hands of drug cartels who proceeded to murder hundreds of Mexicans and at least one Border Patrol agent (Brian Terry).

Now, that same ATF is has shut down a gun store that sold weapons to the mother of Newtown shooter Adam Lanza.

Via Reuters:
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said on Friday it had revoked the federal license of a Connecticut gun retailer that sold a weapon to the mother of Adam Lanza, who killed 26 people at an elementary school in December.

The agency on December 20 revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor, Connecticut, ATF spokeswoman Debora Seifert said. The revocation was reported in The Journal News, of Westchester County, New York, on Friday.

"We did revoke their federal firearms license," she said. The agency did not publicly disclose a reason for the closure.

A woman who answered the telephone at Riverview on Friday, and did not give her name, confirmed the store had sold a weapon to Lanza's mother, Nancy, and that its license had been revoked. She declined further comment.
This may just be one of the most boldly audacious and outrageous moves by the Feds in some time. In operation Fast and Furious, the ATF has the blood of hundreds of Mexicans on its hands for telling gun store owners to sell weapons to buyers it knew would give them to drug cartels. Yet, no one at ATF has paid any real price. Now, the same ATF is shutting down a gun store that did nothing illegal?!?!

I sent the following email to Rep. Darrell Issa's press secretary, Becca Watkins:
Becca, where are you guys on this????

Without explanation, the ATF shuts down gun shop that sold guns to Adam Lanza's mother. Yet, the ATF FREAKIN' TOLD GUN STORES to sell to straw purchasers who put thousands of guns into the hands of cartels, who then proceeded to murder hundreds of Mexcians!!!

Where is Chairman Issa??????

Is he still there????
Issa is head of the House Oversight Committee and knows as much as anyone about what went on in Fast and Furious.

Video: Interview with Jim DeMint (Best candidate for POTUS in 2016?)

When Jim DeMint, by far the most principled Senator in the U.S. Senate, announced that he was stepping down to lead the Heritage Foundation, most viewed it as a step down for conservatism - because DeMint was that good. As the dust has settled since that announcement, the seat held by DeMint has been filled by the very capable conservative Tim Scott (R-SC) and DeMint is prepared to impact the political landscape as a marketing tactician in a world rife with technological marketing tools.

The seat once held by DeMint is in good hands and effective April 4th, so is Heritage. On his first day as president of Heritage, DeMint sent out an open letter that explains what he's done during the transition and what he'd like to accomplish during his tenure. In many ways, he may just be more effective than if he'd stayed in the Senate.

In fact, if he does this right, DeMint may just become the obvious choice for president in 2016; he is certainly up to the task.

This morning, Ed Morrissey interviewed DeMint about his new role.
