A gun rights advocate is praising a Hispanic media outlet for uncovering a startling revelation about the ill-fated "Fast and Furious" program.

Univision, a Spanish-language television network in the U.S., has obtained a Mexican Army document revealing that three of the high-caliber guns used in the January 2010 bloody massacre in Ciudad Ju├írez, Chihuahua, Mexico, were linked to the gun-walking operation conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Fourteen young people were killed, and another 12 were wounded by assassins tied to the Mexican cartel La Linea.

Pratt, Larry (GOA)Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America (GOA), says Univision's "Aqui y Ahora" is very graphic.

"They show some of the dead bodies; they make this a whole lot more real than the [rest of the] media here in this country," Pratt asserts.

He suggests the report would be much bigger news if a Republican were president.   

"We would have heard no end of this. This would have been lead story nightly news from the time that this broke -- the end of January last year," the GOA spokesman insists. "The so-called mainline media has been doing really a very effective job [of] ignoring Fast and Furious."

So Pratt says Mitt Romney and the Republicans need to make a campaign issue of the government program that allowed more than 2,000 high-powered rifles to "walk' into the hands of violent Mexican cartels.

"They can't rely on the Democrat media to do it; they're not going to be talking about what a bunch of criminals their own guys are," he contends. "The Republicans are going to have to bring it to the attention of Mr. and Mrs. America that your government was engaged in a conspiracy to commit murder."

Pratt is hopeful Romney will bring up the subject during a future debate.
