    Evidently, some guys were casing Barrett last week:

    From www.NoisyRoom.net
    It's probably nothing.

    Just some students from the local flight school.

    Maybe they were from the Brady Bunch's sewer. (?)

    HAHAHA oh that was a devious one right there.

    But back to the topic. Its good to see that they are taking a very proactive stance on this, hopefully some security camera's got them on tape. I would not however put this past the brady bunch as a way to shutdown firearms manufacturers. Could also have been a government test to make sure the facility is secure.

    Around the turn of the centry it was the Micks and the Wops. During WW2 it was ze Germans and the Japs. '60's and it was the Blacks. Now it's the Ragheads. Eventually it'll be the Mexicans.

    Sooner or later we're going to run out of ethnicies to cast for our bogeymen.

    The fact that it was "three middle eastern men" (but in a nondescript nice white truck) makes this seem forehead-smackingly obvious that this is some sort of ploy by somebody. My tinfoil hat must just be preventing me from figuring out who: The Feds, the Brady bunch, the Illuminati?

    Zero, you left out the Borg, Goauld (sp?), La Cosa Nostra, and the Smoking Man.

    Good job, Barrett. Either those "midde-eastern" guys were morons or whoever sent them is.

    Barrett employee: "Sure, come on in! How many do you want! You know these things can shoot a 747 out of the sky,right? Oh,and cash is king! *wink wink*"

    Yeah right. I wonder who put them up to this. Brady was probably looking for a cash-and-carry discount.

    I wonder what kind of security Barrett has in place there. I know employees are not discouraged from CCW but do they have an actual guard post? If polite words fail to prompt uninvited visitors to leave, staring down the 25mm bore of one of those XM109's would do the trick :evil:

    Ten to one there isn't any live ammo in that joint because somewhere along the line somebody's lawyer whined about liability risk.

    Security in a gun factory...

    the smart thing would be to issue each employee a bandolier or 2 of ammo to carry while working... if the S hits the F, then you got a pretty good security force at hand...

    They would have to be the world's dumbest terrorists to try something there.

    My money says that it was just a couple random non-Caucasian guys, maybe drunk, who were out wandering around being idiots, or maybe just looking for someplace to rob. Whereas at another time or place it would've been ignored, in this instance their appearance and the location combined to create a higher response level.

    Yeah, because we all know that angry muslims wanting to kill Americans is just some crazy made up fairy tale to scare people. :scrutiny:

    This really can't help the effort to ban fifty-calibers. If terrorists are really showing up at the factory with a trailer, they're obviously having a hard time getting them from gun shows, straw purchases, etc. And why would Barret kick them off the property? Aren't gun makers just ruthless profiteers? Could it be they practice some sort of civic responsibility? :eek:

    This all just sounds a bit too ridiculous to be what folks are supposing.

    If you were an Al Qaeda sleeper cell, preparing for a major attack, would you pick your most conspicuous "A-rab lookin' " members, and send them out with a trailer to go chat up a bunch of white guys at a heavy rifle factory? What plausible COAs would fit in with those facts?

    Wouldn't it make more sense too, I dunno, get $20,000 of laundered money and send your blue-eyed and blond Turkish member to pick up a few fifties at scattered Oregon/Washington/Idaho/Nevada gunshops over the course of a week?

    In other words: darker than Jessica Simpson but lighter than Samuel L. Jackson.


    I bet Wes Janson nailed this one, kudos! Too bad the Pres illegalized online gambling, I'd join Wes and PayPal some cash down on this one.

    Even the Brady's were smart enough to figure that one out. IIRC, in one of their propoganda pieces a few years ago claimed that Al-Q and other like organizations encouraged their members to purchase weapons- legally if possible. Unfortunately, that brilliant spark was attached to an ad that called for stricter purchase requirements- so Al-Q couldn't buy guns.

    I think somebody got all you people scared.

    You are allowed to call people micks and spicks and rag heads and Mexicans and Germans and the Jap's..

    But nobody said the word NI--ER..

    As far as I'm concerned, the Mexicans will not be much of a threat unless the Rag Heads or the Chinese pay them to give us a hard time..

    All these poor Mexicans want is a job and the American Way Of Life.

    I know many of you so called Americans that do not want to work at all...

    I would gladly work with a dozen Mexicans or Afro Americans that want to work - than to work with even one American that does not..

    They should have sold them some guns - and then arrested them after the check cleared - like the US has done everywhere else in the world...

    Correia,

    Nah, it's just some isolated crazies, like the DC snipers, the guy at the synagogue in Seattle, the guy at the safeway, the guys in Florida etc and ad finitum:neener:
