Good job on the radio interview, Bob.
Clear concise explanation of the facts.
Keep up the great work!

Careful not to confuse Gun walker/gunrunner with op fast and furious. Gun walker started under Bush to capture straw purchasers (where they actually capture them) as well as a few hundred other ops. Fast and furious is the illegal gun smuggling op started in 2009.

St Marks, you are incorrect on details if correct in your caution.

Gunrunner is the Bush era-program; Gunwalker is the moniker hung around Fast and Furious and it's apparent sister operations.

Yes indeed. Just want to throw a word of caution so your readers are differentiating the differences.

It will be easy for the main stream media to start confusing the two terms, and when the public is confused enough, they can blame it on Bush and Republicans for starting the "project."

I like how Cam on NRA podcast kept on referring to the differences of the two to remind listeners which one is which.

I hope gun bloggers will pay extra attention in reference to these programs [be it as it may, repetitive on referring], create the narrative, and not let anti-gunners run away with their own narratives [and then blame gun owners, and Bush, and generally anyone who's against their communistic world view].
