ATF to open a store to boost employee morale

Yes, it seems the employees of the agency have low morale and a deep distrust of management, no doubt due to all the scandals. So, they decide to waste tax payer money:

According to information obtained by Townhall, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms will soon be opening up a store inside ATF Headquarters in Washington D.C. in an effort to boost morale.

“Currently the Office of the Director is in the process of coordinating the opening of an ATF store, which will be located in ATF HQ. The mission of the store is to serve current and former employees of ATF, Task Force Officers, and family members by promoting the general welfare and morale of the employees of ATF by providing, encouraging and supporting social, educational, and recreational activities of interest to its employees. In the coming weeks, more information will follow about the ATF HQ store,” ATF Chief of Strategic Management (OSM) Ron Humphries wrote in an email to employees on October 28, 2013.

    One has to wonder at the merchandise to be stocked. Will there be dogs to be shot? Kittens to be stomped? Rights to be trampled? Or will they just go for booze and smokes?

    Can I get an assault ak-15 with a million round clip that shoots instantly fatal 60 gauge cop killer boolits from them?

  4. Billll Says:

    I’m going to think they’re selling automatic weapons and hand grenades as ATF employees are obviously the only ones competent to handle such things.

  5. Kevin Baker Says:

    So they really ARE going to make ATFE into a convenience store?

  6. Bob Smithey Says:

    I hope they sell Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

    Military tried that with the commissary and exchange system. That whole mess took a dive in the 70s when Chambers of Commerce and individual merchants complained that military people’s opportunity to buy reduced-price gasoline, liquor, tobacco, food, etc., was unfair to those people who, for one reason or another, had not opted to become eligible for these programs by joining a military service. It is to the eternal shame of the DoD that they caved, to the point where commissaries and exchanges no longer offer significant savings and we can now do better at WalMart! So go ahead and start your little store – envy will take them down in good time.

    They’re gonna sell those ATF Convenience Store t-shirts right? A little humor should go a long way towards improving ATF morale.

  9. Linoge Says:

    So they cannot get me my permission slip to move an NFA-regulated item from one state to another, despite three phone calls and one letter… because they are too busy opening a morale shop?

    Fuck. That. Noise.

    Sounds like a party store!

    Cash only, no checks or debit/credit cards.

    When I worked in DC at the Naval Research Lab, a fine institution that calibrated guns in WW I, developed radar and air burst fuses in WWII, IR scopes during Vietnam and IFF (identify friend and foe) RF transponders during the first Iraq war, they too had a store selling t-shirts, mugs, stickers and other NRL labeled merchandise.

    We needed morale increased, too, especially during the hot summer months. NRL has a chain link fence separating it from the giant DC sewer treatment plant, right next door on the Potomac. And the store was located right along that fence, as I recall. I only went there once. Otherwise I stayed in my lab building and hoped the wind was right walking to and from my car.

    FBI have them in many locations.

    I picked up a pink t-shirt for her at the Louisville office when it opened. Her favorite soap opera character had one.
