Romney on gun violence: Fast and Furious is ‘the greatest failure we’ve had’ – Operation Fast and Furious saw its presidential debate debut during Tuesday’s town hall-style faceoff when Gov. Mitt Romney brought up the scandal in response to a question about gun control.  “The greatest failure we’ve had with regards to gun violence, in some respects,” Romney said, “is what is known as ‘Fast and Furious,’ which was a program under this administration. And how it worked exactly — I think we don’t know precisely — but where thousands of automatic and AK-47-type weapons were given to people that ultimately gave them to drug lords [in Mexico].”
