    Here's an article from the Milwaukee Journal about a botched BATF operation. The democrats lambast us law abiding gun owners for having semi-automatic firearms (EBR's), but in this article the BATF has a fully automatic M4 stolen!!! A true "assault weapon". Why isn't this story on the evening new??? The incompetance is mind numbing...

    Actual article below (slightly shortened to fit):

    A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.
    Those working behind the counter, however, weren't interested in selling anything.
    They were undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives running a storefront sting aimed at busting criminal operations in the city by purchasing drugs and guns from felons.
    But the effort to date has not snared any major dealers or taken down a gang. Instead, it resulted in a string of mistakes and failures, including an ATF military-style machine gun landing on the streets of Milwaukee and the agency having $35,000 in merchandise stolen from its store, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found.

    This is government hard at work on your dime. These are the brainstorm ideas of idiots. They could not run a one car funeral and have it work right.

    I'm sure there are some honest, hardworking agents in the B.A.T.F. who try to do a good job. However, I don't believe their management could organize a sock drawer.

    This has been on the front page of the Journal Sentinel here in Milwaukee the past few days.
