ATF Buys Guns For More Than Retail - Royal Screw Up - Loses Machine Gun
#1
A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

Those working behind the counter, however, weren't interested in selling anything.

They were undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives running a storefront sting aimed at busting criminal operations in the city by purchasing drugs and guns from felons.

But the effort to date has not snared any major dealers or taken down a gang. Instead, it resulted in a string of mistakes and failures, including an ATF military-style machine gun landing on the streets of Milwaukee and the agency having $35,000 in merchandise stolen from its store, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found.

Lots more here:

It's sad that a federal agency can't run a successful job like that. Lancaster city PD did a successful one a few years ago. Had a pawnshop store front and ended up arresting a couple hundred people as the result, and recovered shitloads of stolen booty, much of which was returned to the owners.

You would think, of all the people who could run an illegal enterprise, it would be the ATF. This just solidifies my trust of the government.

The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.
