Chris Muir, who produces the popular webcomic Day by Day, features a “Project Gunwalker” storyline in today’s strip—hands-down the most on-target and brilliant skewering I’ve seen to date, and I’ve seen some good ones.
Titled “Getting the Message,” the strip revolves around message options a telephone caller receives when trying to reach the White House about the ATF program that put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

This is not the first time Muir has brought his talents to the fore on the Gunwalker scandal. A Gun Rights Examiner column in May highlighted his Sergio Leone “spaghetti Western” spoof “Good, Bad and Ugly” (starring Attorney General Eric Holder!), and also referenced a March strip where Muircompared arming cartels to freeing Al Qaeda rebels in Libya.

Note to newcomers to this story: “Project Gunrunner” is the name ATF assigned to its Southwest Border Initiative to interdict gun smuggling to Mexico. “Project Gunwalker” is the name I assigned to the scandal after allegations by agents that monitored guns were allowed to fall into criminal hands on both sides of the border through a surveillance process termed “walking” surfaced.
