ATF working on its next "Economic Waco"? Richard Celata sends a clarification on his targeting by the ATF.

Received this email from Richard Celata after posting his story last night:

Thank you Sipsey for posting this.

I would like to clarify the comment on “the rumor is going around Montana that Richard might be interested in manufacturing firearms consistent with the Montana Firearms Freedom Act (MMFA).”

It is true that I am interested, I had input in writing that law, BUT, I have never acted on that interest.

I am waiting for the law suit Gary Marbet filed. So, I do not believe this terrorist aggression by the ATF is related to MFFA. At this point we do not know what it is related to.

So, the ATF is once again either

a. Jumping at shadows, or,

b. Deliberately targeting people it can wreak "economic Wacos" on simply because of their political opinions.

My bet is "B."

The BATFE has been trying to destroy Mr. Celata for years--I've been following that, off and on, since 2006. In 2007, they "arreested" part of his inventory--Len Savage would recognize that BATFE strategy.

I'd love to see the 80% market really take off, so the feds couldn't track anything.

c. Getting him to sign a firearms app as an entrapment ploy they can exploit as his 'admission' he was doing what they accuse him of.

Seems that would be a handy thing to have to get a judge to sign a warrant, as well as useful to wave in front of a manipulated jury.

45superman, what was the final disposition of Mr. Celata's property in the older case?

To tell you the truth, I never found out how that was resolved (if it has been resolved).
