‘Gunwalker’ guns linked to helicopter shooting

CBS News has learned that the recent case of a Mexican military helicopter forced to land after it was fired upon is linked to the ATF Fast and Furious “gunwalker” operation.

How many bloody guns has the ATF sold to the cartels? This article says more than 2,500, which is double the number I saw reported a month ago.  I’m trying to think of a good a reasonable purpose in selling them so many, but I just can’t see it.  If they thought they could track each weapon, why would such a large volume be needed?  If they knew they would lose track of them, why do this at all?

Unfortunately, the cartels have been getting plenty of military grade weapons from the US government without bothering with the ATF at all.  Complete insanity.
