Federal authorities were hunting Friday for more than 100 rifles stolen from a boxcar parked in an Atlanta train yard.

Gee, they don’t say who owned the weapons....
Was it a load of SKS that they have to sell at or near cost. (IF they can find buyers)?
Thieves knew just which car to rob?
inside job..Howd they know what was in a train car?
They may have been wearing white turbans.
“The naaasty anti-guv guys did it, the ones who ripped off all those riiiifles....”
Choom gang operatives will politely place them into the hands of scum-bags, who will attack any govt target they designate, and then law abiding people will be blamed.
And this provides the premise for removing some, “dangerous form of liberty”.
GayMuzzie’s way of doing things is so well established that it’s RADICAL to just assume anything else.
No you need to be like Johnny and me and hope that they were wearing ‘Brown Coats’!
Must’ve been right by the door. Smart.
Here you go Johnny!
“bammy boyz loadin’ up....
Check the rail lines going over the border.
I am sticking with my first guess.
No problems selling SKS rifles that I know of. They seem to sell will at a profit.
Maybe you'll get a visit from Holder for some face time, iffin' you are lucky.
I can’t help but wonder if ATF stole the weapons, or if they’re investigating it. Why investigate semi-autos? This reminds me of the FBI raiding Broadwell’s house.
Holder probably ordered it.
On another note, does anybody remember that old Daniel Boone episode "50 Rifles?" Perhaps the Shawnee were in on this!
The ATF is out of control.
Yes, inside job.
And, believe it or not, the thieves didn’t bother to apply for an FFL, or even a carry permit!
Stricter gun laws would no doubt have prevented this... (sarcasm)
Ask Eric Holder...Those rifles apparently walked away.
Fast and Furious continues in the US. Dateline: Atlanta.
These “stolen” weapons will be allowed to “walk” into the underworld, used in crimes.....to yet again try to tail wag the dog to push for assault weapons ban.
This is “FAKE” unless they provide specific info as to WHO owned the weapons and to where they were headed. From FFL to FFL and who the shipper was.
This is NOT secret info, unless they make it so.
Holder *graced* us with his presence this week, coincidentally the same day the 111 S&W handguns were reported stolen in Stratford.
Today, in Hartford, they are holding *gun-buy-back*. Heh.
“My thinking is that ‘Brown Coats’ did it! “
Up the Rebels!
Happens a lot. Just ask BeeHOe and his boy holder.
(I know, I know, they were riffles, but I was thinking "holy pistolies batman!" at the time)
***Thieves knew just which car to rob?***
This has been going on for many years. Back around 1968, gun companies shipping by rail were required to label the packages in red letters, FIREARMS.
It was said that the conductors would wait till they were passing a certain crossing and toss the boxes labeled FIREARMS to waiting cars.
Back about 1971 or 72, Mike Wallace did a 60 MINUTES interview with some getto kids who were robbing boxcars. They said the last breakin was a load of meat, but the best haul they ever made was...GUNS.
In the 1970s Skeeter Skelton, the handgun editor for SHOOTING TIMES, sent an engraved Browning pistol to Peoria, Ill, for photographing. It never arrived.
In 1968, I ordered a handgun from Walter H Graig in Selma Alabama. It did arrive by railway express, and it had the tape labeled in big letters FIREARMS. I figure the conductor knew it was a junk gun and let it pass. The shipping cost as much as the handgun.
>> Yes, inside job.
Doubtful unless that’s the same as an outsider having knowledge of the shipment whether provided with or without wrongful intent.
