**FILE** Peck Canyon near Nogales, Ariz., is seen here on June 7, 2011. The ATF is under fire over a Phoenix-based gun-trafficking investigation called "Fast and Furious," in which agents allowed hundreds of guns into the hands of straw purchasers in hopes of making a bigger case. Two of those weapons were found in December 2010 at the fatal shooting of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. (Associated Press)
