    Jacob Anthony Montelongo was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison while Sean Christopher Steward received a nine-year sentence

    PHOENIX — Two men have been sentenced to several years behind bars for their roles in a gun smuggling ring that was part of the U.S. government's Operation Fast and Furious.

    The U.S. Justice Department says Jacob Anthony Montelongo was sentenced Monday in Phoenix to nearly 3 1/2 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy and dealing guns without a license. Sean Christopher Steward received a nine-year sentence for conspiracy and lying.

    During the Fast and Furious operation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents hoped to track illegally obtained weapons to high-level arms traffickers, but authorities lost track of many of the guns.

    The operation led to congressional inquiries. It was exposed after two of the illegally obtained weapons were found at the scene of the 2010 fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

    Lets see, if I lend, give or sell a firearm to a known felon I can be tried, found guilty and then sentenced to a lengthy prison term. If I work for the BATF and do the same I get a promotion, go figure.

    Only if you do it as part of your official duties. Illegally sell a firearm as a private party and you're going to jail.

    The only sentence I want to hear announced is Holder's. he deserves 30 years in a cell and all of the "nonconsentual sex" that comes with it. I dont want him to be able to hold his bowels in by the time his sentence is up.

    And the lambs were sacrificed in repentance. If just one of them would stand on two feet and shout BLAA, perhaps we would get to the crux of the matter, until then more fatted sheep.
