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?

Insurance “lightning?”

They may have been wearing white turbans.

Reichstag prep:

“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 problems selling SKS rifles that I know of. They seem to sell will at a profit.

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.

Atlanta...Stolen rifles...Sons of Obama I reckon.

On another note, does anybody remember that old Daniel Boone episode "50 Rifles?" Perhaps the Shawnee were in on this!

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)

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.

I was gonna say. Those pistolies weren't boosted, they just grew some legs, got up and "walked away!"

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.
