You just cannot make this stuff up!
This should come to be known as the ATF’s “Half-ast & Curious” Operation.
It should be noted that there is now one fully automatic machinegun somewhere in Milwaukee. Were other guns taken in the robbery? They say not, but various shady people were running to Gander Mountain et al buying guns then sellling to the front for the huge pricess they offered.
When asked the agents who ran the place gave fake names to the police, so what is the likelyhood they mentioned any guns they had in store? Zip.
This sounds like a Mafai “break oout.” Get a store fromt, stock it with merchandise secured on credit, sell it for a pittance, stage a break in and load out any remaining loot, stiff the creditors and never pay. The machinegun would bring fancy money too so sell it and declare it stolen. If you have a lot of brass, insure the merchandise and hang around to collect from the insurance company too but that is risky.
The BATFE are NOT on the side of regular citizens. The scope of authority for the BATFE should be to eliminate all ATF&E representations/displays/use in the movies and on TV.
I don’t know how much more dysfunction is possible from one administration. I wish there was a betting pool.
The Peter Principal is going strong.
If there was a law making fully automatic machine guns illegal the criminals would have known not to take that one.
Oh wait!! There is such a law and the criminals didn’t follow it. (Which is typical behavior for criminals.)
So how is banning guns going to stop criminals from getting guns again?
Those hypocrites Barrett and Flynn jump on the bandwagon now that it’s gone national. Where were these sobs before?
I suspect this ATF site was set up to furnish guns to bad guys, in hopes of sparking massacres that could be used for control purposes.
