“Like Fast and Furious down at the border”

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is coming under fire for comments during a live show in which he suggested that the Obama administration could have been responsible for staging the ‘Batman’ massacre – but Mustaine’s remarks were echoed by none other than Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt.
During a concert in Singapore, Mustaine remarked that President Obama was trying to pass gun control legislation.
“So he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the border, Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there, and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple,” said Mustaine, before adding, “I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”
Mustaine has since been savaged by numerous media outlets for his comments despite the fact that the Fast and Furious program, which saw the Obama administration put guns directly in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, has led to the murders of hundreds of people.
However, Mustaine’s suspicion surrounding the recent mass shootings was echoed by Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt, a respected voice in the gun rights movement, who himself shared his own suspicions about the ‘Batman’ massacre during an interview with Alex Jones last month.
Pointing out that some 400 Mexicans have been the victims of “premeditated murder,” along with U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, as a direct consequence of the Fast and Furious program, Pratt told Infowars Nightly News, “Now we have to admit that this is something that maybe our government is capable of, this was only 12 people murdered, they were good for 400 in Fast and Furious.”
Mustaine’s suspicions about the Colorado and Sikh temple shootings are not without foundation.
Police audio, eyewitness testimony and other material evidence clearly suggests that alleged shooter James Holmes had an accomplice.
Eyewitnesses described two shooters, noting that one of the gas canisters was thrown from the opposite side of the theater to where the killer was standing. Eyewitnesses also described the killer talking on a cellphone before the shooting and then standing in the emergency exit and beckoning someone else over.
More than an hour after Holmes was detained, police officers were still hunting additional suspects, having been told by eyewitnesses that there was more than one shooter.
At 1:16am on the police audio recording from the scene, an officer states, “Talking to people making statements, sounds like we have possibly 2 shooters, one that was in Theater 8 seated, another one that came in from the outside into Theater 9. Sounds like it was a coordinated attack.”
“Every unit, possible 2nd shooter still at large… Keep the media away from them,” said another officer.
A second gas mask different to the one Holmes was wearing was also found hundreds of feet from where Holmes was arrested at the opposite end of the theater car park, along with additional items.
Similarly, in the case of the Sikh temple shootings, there were multiple eyewitness reports of additional gunmen.
Speaking with the Associated Press, an eyewitness stated, “Between ten and ten-thirty, four white males who were dressed darkly, dressed in all black clothing, came in and opened fire on our congregation.”
Temple member Amardeep Kaleka, whose mother and father were injured victims in the shooting, also told WISN that his parents said there were “multiple shooters, multiple people” and that the attack was “very well coordinated.”
Kaleka added that his father saw “multiple shooters of caucasian descent.”
An ITN News report also quoted the niece of one of the temple members who said, “An unknown number of gunmen had walked into the kitchen of the Sikh temple and opened fire.”
Another man at the scene told Sky News, “I think they had multiple shooters.”
In addition, the Chairman of the temple stated that the day before the attack there were a “few suspicious men seen on Temple premises,” again clearly suggesting the involvement of more than one person.
