gc70, the motivation for gunwalking has been revealed, as if it were not already obvious from the design of the program.

Another reason it appears the passage of more gun control was the goal all along is found in e-mails between Mark Chait, ATF’s assistant director of field operations, and William Newell, special agent in charge in Phoenix during Fast and Furious. In one such e-mail, sent during July 2010, Chait asked Newell to pay special attention to multiple long-gun sales at gun stores because the ATF was, at that time, already “looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long-gun multiple sales.”
If you're having trouble hunting down favorable anecdotes, go create them!

That's Fast and Furious in a nutshell.
