Mashup fun: Archie comic strip with the lyrics from Pulp’s “Common People.”
On a site where government agencies advertise bids for private contractors, the ATF advertises for a Leatherman Micra engraved with the words “always think forfeiture.” You know, in case any of its agents forget what’s really important.

What happens if one of the kids, who in my case ,is autistic, should hit the link?! I would be GUILTY!! But, in my eyes, I would still be innocent. Just seems like a bad precedent to set.
What happens if the wrong link gets tagged when I am trying to get something near it on the page? It happens to me all of the time, if I am not real careful.
I also have the problem of getting pop-ups that just show up on my computer. I get rid of them immediately, but the damage has been done. Porn popped up on my computer!
I just think they are going to get a lot of false raids out of this. How many SWAT teams are going to be used? And how many innocents will be affected? Like the Frederick guy who shot someone breaking into his house. Sadly, it was a cop and he was killed. Now Frederick is a murderer?
Just more bad news, on the police state, we are now living in!
Regarding the FBI story, one has to wonder if the best way to reduce crime might just be to get rid of all law enforcement agencies. Sure, it would embolden criminals, but think of all the crime that would disappear just because the cops were no longer there tricking people into it.
Regarding ATF forfeiture, the ATF recently (~3 wks ago) raided a Gilbert, AZ rifle manufacturer. Rumors say that the warrant just said “Seize everything.” They did not shut down the manufaturer or suspend their FFL. No one was arrested. The ATF just showed up with some semis and news crew, and took damn near everything. It’s been almost 3 weeks, no charges have been filed, and everything is still sealed. The manufacturer is struggling to stay open and with a large outpouring of support from the Arizona shooting community, has managed to.
