Even the leftist press hates the ATF

  1. You know things have gotten out of hand when the leftist press says ATF has run amok.

    The newest report about the ATF in St. Lou.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...e-weak-mentally-challenged-and-drug-addicted/


    "The operation, mainly in 2013, had two strategies. One was a “storefront” undercover operation offering cash for guns and drugs. The other enlisted armed helpers in fictitious plans to rob drug dealers’ “stash houses.” . . "


    “I thought about these cases long and hard,” U.S. District Judge Audrey Fleissig said during the sentencing of Bobby Barnes for one St. Louis stash house case last year. “Frankly, I’m not a huge fan of this whole sting operation,” she added, saying she questioned the value of creating criminal opportunities that defendants “hadn’t thought of.”

    Do they hate the ATF or is it who was targeted that bothers them?

    They only hate that they use shady tactics to stop criminals...... Now against legitimate average gun owners, they're all for that.

    Yeah, I think that they are more concerned about potential entrapment issues than they are about the ATF going after FFL establishments.
