ATF Agents Lose Their Government Issued Guns, Kids Find Them

Katie Pavlich 2/27/2014

I am continually amazed how many of the very agents in charge of enforcing America's gun laws at the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms are completely reckless with guns.

If the BATFE was a convenience store and was this inept, it would be closed down and its employees, supervisors, and managers would be in prison.

Oh, wait, this is a U.S. government agency. We have to defend all those federal employees’ jobs so nothing will happen; the guilty will be transferred and receive promotions.

I’ve never lost a firearm. I guess I’m not qualified to hold a Federal LEO position.

Well of course. I had that happen too. We never found the boat either.
