Will it play in Peoria?

At the very least, it plays in the Quad City Times and that's close enough.
Every kid who ever has played cops and robbers knows that the good guys try to keep guns away from the bad guys. The last thing you'd do is sit around and watch crooks sell each other weapons then sit back and wait for the carnage.

But that's exactly what leadership within the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are charged with doing, in an apparently harebrained ploy to get close to Mexico's drug cartels.

The plan was dubbed Operation Fast and Furious. Foolish and Fatal might be more accurate.
But he lost me when he promoted the "review the nation's gun laws" theme.

The meaning of the phrase "Will it Play in Peoria?"

I left this comment. I wonder if it will show up.

Cummings is nothing but a tool of the anti-gun crowd. This whole plan served one purpose. It was designed to inflate the number of guns at crime scenes in Mexico. That way the Obummer administration could re-instate a new and improved AWB and further restrictions on our 2nd Amendment rights. Now that it's blown up in their faces, Obama and Holder both need to be removed from office. Once they figure out where the orders came from, criminal charges should be filed. The Mexican authorities are wanting to prosecute the people involved for violating Mexican law and sovereignty. I hope holder gets to spend a few years in a Mexican prison.
