Pushing even anti-gun senators to investigate 'Project Gunwalker' can bear fruit

In corresponding with one's senators in order to urge them to investigate, it's useful to frame one's arguments with some thought into what motivates them. With Senators Durbin and Kirk, for example, remember that both of them are enthusiastically on board with the idea of appointing rabidly anti-gun Andrew Traver as BATFE director (as FOX News' Megyn Kelly so insistently pointed out yesterday). Perhaps they would be interested to know if it is true, as has been very plausibly suggested, that the indefinite postponement of Senate consideration of that appointment is directly related to the "Gunwalker" scandal. Senator Durbin, by the way, as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, would be an especially useful convert to the cause of investigating "Project Gunwalker." [More]
