Skip to comments.ATF special agent talks to Victor students about 2nd Amendment
Posted on 03/06/2018 4:48:27 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
VICTOR Sean Martineck...(spoke to) the government class of Victor Senior High School teacher Mike Myers ... on ... the ...serious topic of gun violence, the Second Amendment and getting illegal guns off the streets something that takes up a great deal of his time as a special agent for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, assigned to the Violent Crime Task Force in the Rochester satellite office.
Martineck read (the Second Amendment), noting it was passed in 1791.
What did our Founding Fathers mean by that? he asked. Do you think our Founding Fathers envisioned the type of world we live in today?
He then reviewed a history of laws governing firearms and events that triggered them, starting with the 1934 National Firearms Act that required tax stamps on machine guns, sawed-off shotguns and destructive devices like a pipe bomb.
My stance, as an ATF agent, is if they say this is the law, Im going to enforce it, Martineck said, noting he personally believes no one but police and military should have assault weapons.
He was bothered by the students seeming acceptance that there is nothing they can do to stop school shootings because they are not old enough to vote, and believing the momentum in the wake of Parkland will fade like it has after previous shootings.
I dont feel like there cant be a change. If you want something changed, you can do it. You shouldnt feel like status quo. Congress needs to hear you guys. You guys are our future. Theres nothing more precious in our society than our kids. If thats not the tipping point, I dont know what is

Like the IRS, the FBI, and the CIA, the BATFE has been weaponized to push the Leftist narrative in service to the Deep State against the people of these barely-United States.
shall not be infringed
What did our Founding Fathers mean by that?
I wonder if he mentioned the comma....those are two distinct phrases with the key point being the right to keep and bear arms will not be abridged. Furthermore, I wonder if he discussed what exactly a militia was in those days given the constitution did not envision a standing army.
Sounds like a character you’d write, Matt.
The Nazis and Soviets also believed that no one but the police and military should have “assault weapons” also. How’d that turn out? And they call PRESIDENT Trump, Hitler.
Do you think our Founding Fathers envisioned the type of world we live in today?
YES! It's exactly why 2A!
“You guys are our future. Theres nothing more precious in our society than our kids. If thats not the tipping point, I dont know what is”
There’s nothing more precious in our society THAN OUR LIBERTY. The kids of today are the guardians of that liberty tomorrow. Instructing them to destroy the Constitution of the United States IS a tipping point, once you go Communist you never (can) go back.
And therein lies the problem. His belief leaves the citizenry completely at the mercy of those that are armed. Target rich environment and makes We The People nothing more than peons. This ATF agent needs to find employment elsewhere.
The president needs to fire the attorney general and install one who will ferret out Marxists in government agencies.
One nit to pick. Hitler did not confiscate the guns from German citizens. The Weimar Republic did that prior to Hitler's rise, in order to prevent he and his followers from taking power. It had the obverse effect, which is a precursor to events of this day.
Batfe is to the Second Amendment is what the einsatzgruppen was to Jews during World War II.
“he personally believes no one but police and military should have assault weapons”
Like China, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany?
Leave it to a gubmit control freak goon to have that conclusion.
Thanks for the clarification!
This traitor should be put in prison for the lies he put in those kids’ heads.
