Credible threats and bullshit

Seems ATF finds Red’s Trading Post taking pics as a credible threat. That got some press coverage. And a mention at Instapundit.

The ATF’s push is nonsensical but it continues a trend of bad things for the agency in the last few years, like:

A circuit court smacks them down for their ruling on model rockets;

An agent testified under oath that the NFRTR (the NFA weapons database) was corrupt;

Having budget issues due to mismanagement;

Being investigated for breaking he law at Virginia gun shows.

And they’ve had funds cut for some of their rather, err, dubious programs.

The ATF Director has resigned over excessive and lavish spending.

The now former head of the ATF ordered staff to do his nephew’s homework.

And employees are coming forward with allegations of mismanagement.

And getting smacked down for disregarding the law.

    With a track record like that, I wouldn’t want people taking pictures of me, either.
