Joe Biden’s corrupt Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) has admitted that literally “thousands” of guns and gun parts have been stolen from their warehouses.
With inflation, prices are up pretty much across the board, but if you’re looking for a new gun for recreation or self-defense, here’s a hint: the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is offering them at an absolute steal. Seriously, the federal agency tasked with enforcing firearms regulations has such poor security that thousands of guns and gun parts once in its possession disappeared in the hands of thieves. And it has yet to fully implement recommended reforms.
“Since September 2015, the ATF has utilized the National Disposal Branch (NDB), formerly the National Firearms and Ammunition Destruction (NFAD) Branch, to centralize and streamline the disposal process of forfeited and ATF-owned firearms. Each year, the ATF destroys thousands of firearms at the NDB,” the U.S. Justice Department’s Inspector General noted in announcing a recent report. “The DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) undertook this audit following the discovery that thousands of firearms, firearm parts, and ammunition had been stolen from NFAD from 2016 to 2019.”
So, for three years, the agency that enforces every petty and intrusive federal regulation regarding firearms (as well as alcohol, tobacco, and explosives) let its own security personnel (“a DHS contract security guard was convicted in connection with these thefts”) pilfer its inventory.
Think about this, folks…
These illicit members of the “law enforcement” community — an agency that should not really even exist in the first place — spends its days attacking Americans, raiding their homes and businesses, stealing away their private property, and often accusing Americans of not storing their guns safely…. has…. has had such lax security that thousands of guns have been stolen from them.
Worse, they didn’t even know this was happening until a local police officer performed a traffic stop on one of the thieves and caught him with the goods!
What a joke.Commentary
