This from David Codrea's recent Examiner column.
I know many of you will focus on the "M-4," but another question might be why are IOIs, compliance/paperwork inspectors who do not carry firearms in the course of their duties, receiving firearms training in the first place?
Indeed. One might also wonder what would have happened in the Red's Trading Post fiasco if the out-of-control IOI's had been armed and with a mere sketchy bit of training.
Which begs another question: What is it that the ATF knows that we don't? Why are they getting ready to put firearms in the hands of ALL of their employees, including the clerks, cooks and bakers? It would seem that this is the ATF equivalent of the Volkssturm, Hitler's last ditch force multiplier of very old men and young boys and girls.
"Here, Patty, take this M-4 and go arrest that gun criminal."
Like I said, what do they know that we don't?
That they are going to be going to war soon against the armed citizenry of this country?
