Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has written a terse letter to Kenneth E. Melson, Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), concerning Melson's failure to comply with a subpoena issued last month to turn over documents related to Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious. "If you do not comply with the subpoena, the Committee will be forced to commence contempt proceedings," Rep. Issa wrote. Cam Edwards speaks with Dave Workman, Seattle Gun Rights Examiner and Senior Editor of Gun Week, about this new development. Originally aired 4/20/2011.
