Fast and Furious' Dumb Conspiracy Theory

The right-wing theory of the case in the Fast & Furious scandal is that the Obama administration hoped to generate demand for gun control in the United States by allowing the export of deadly guns to Mexico.

Yet demand for gun control does not respond even to mass murders inside the United States.

If you were a secret gun-snatcher, would you ever imagine that gun crime inside Mexico would produce a better result?

More plausible conspiracy theories, please.
