What A 2nd Amendment Supporter Did To An ATF Booth Will Make You Laugh
Independent Journal Review ^ | January 17, 2014 | soopermexican

Posted on 01/18/2014 7:19:15 AM PST by Texas Fossil

When you’re the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and you set up a booth at the largest gun show in the world, you’re gonna have to expect some shenanigans from the gun enthusiast attendees.

One particularly clever 2nd Amendment supporter snuck up to the ATF booth and committed one of the more hilarious acts of political commentary we’ve seen in a long time:

While we cannot condone vandalism, we salute the wit of the gun right advocate in his modest act of civil disobedience.

The next time the guy needs to put a couple of SS labels on the podium.

Good morning. I hope you are doing well.

You posted this on your fb page. I got a big kick out of the guy trying to peel the sticker off his sign.

Easier to remove than a boot.

” I’m told that since there is no perfect transliteration of the original Greek into English, “Molan Labe” is a reasonable version as well as the more traditional “Molon Labe.”

There’s no perfect translation of Molon Labe, but the sentiment today is exactly the same.

I’m surprised they showed up. The ATF guys looked like comic book control freaks. More shots (that is camera shots) of the goons with faces and names would be nice.

I just read that they had their budget cut by $86 million and had to lay off a bunch of people.

Molan labe is exactly what they intend to do.

Am I the only one or is anyone else creeped out by the big brother wall hanging behind the agents?

What I want to know is why these batfe thugs have a booth at the show?

Instant background check on purchases?

Gathering pics for ID/Facial recognition use?

Strutting around to look useful?

Do they think some one is going to apply for a job?

I mean just how many times has anyone been at a Trade/Gun Show and heard anybody go “Hey look, a batfe booth, hurry before they close!!!”

They try to project a gentler image.

I have even talked with them at Farm Shows. They were there to talk about ELF and others destroying crops.

Told them about intentional arson on one of our fields and 2 of our neighbors. Drive by type. We were able to put them out in time so no significant damage was done. All 3 fields were totally ripe and ready to harvest.

I had no problem with them being at the farm show. But that was not under Obozo.

Cool. Except the proper Greek transliteration should be "Molon Lave". the Beta "B" has the "V" sound.

If we're going to bait the bureaucrats and tax collectors we should strive to perfect our Greek.

Uhhh... Our Koine Greek that is. It's not like we're liberals or anything.

Yes, they know it is not going to happen in Texas.

It was tried once before, that did not work out very well.

They are there every year.

They advise dealers and manufacturers how to comply with regulations, to avoid getting their doors kicked in at 3AM for paperwork violations.

This is the first time in decades I’ve heard of the slightest show of disrespect to them at this show, other than giving them a wide berth as I do.
