Looking at casualties from 'Fast and Furious'
Over 300 shootings in Mexico directly attributed to weapons from program; weapons seized from cartels match serial numbers

MEXICO — The American people finally have heard of Brian Terry. He is the best known victim of "Fast and Furious," the Obama administration's de facto conventional-weapons proliferation program.
Between November 2009 and January 2011, Team Obama arranged for licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to straw buyers, who transferred them to known violent criminals in Mexico. Among these firearms, two AK47s were found near Rio Rico, Ariz., where suspected smugglers fatally shot Terry, a 40-year-old former Marine, on Dec. 15, 2010.
