    Found this on another site, thought I might share it here. Just makes me sad seeing all those confiscated guns.:eek: I'd love to go play in there.:D But to be serious, if we just sit back and allow the government to slowy erode our right to keep and bear arms, than all of us might find our firearms in this room one day!!If you got high speed click the first link, if you got dial-up click the second. http://bimmer.roadfly.com/bmw/forums/test/8098907-1.html http://www.davehayes.org/v/guns/batf/?g2_page=1

    Disgusting.

    Those should be in the hands of free citizens.

    It is amazing what these JBT's have confiscated, and that's just the stuff they're showing.

    Who knows the amount of firearms taken from people because of issues with their NFA license....I wonder how many have been confiscated because the owners passed away and never transferred it to a willing party or for other reasons justified or not justified.

    There's no reason for them to keep this cache. None. No technical reason at all. This is the BATFE's trophy room, their shrine of thuggery. That organization is perhaps the worst of all govt organizations when it comes to clannish mentality, us vs. them thinking and a general attitude civilians are scum and should be disarmed. They have that so they can say to themselves "look at what we took"...:barf: .


    Every American should shed a tear when they see that, because there is nothing "cool" or "neat" about it. That is the equivalent of seeing a picture of dead people after a government atrocity. It is like seeing a funeral. In each case, liberty was attacked. The very fact that these arms are in their possession is a testament to the fact that the 2nd Amendment is on its last legs. If the 2nd Amendment stood, like it did in our founders days....those pictures would not exist. Those aren't pictures of firearms, those are photos of the death of liberty.


    Not all of those firearms were taken from drug dealers or mobsters. There are quite a few collectibles there....

    Jefferson is rolling in his grave.

    Thanks for the pics though. Much appreciated.

    What a horrible sight it is.

    Even the guys in the photos(who are suppose to be working for BATF) look like they are enjoying their time in there.


    Thats what I thought. How the heck did they get that into the U.S?!!!

    Lots of guns that were stolen from their rightful owners. After you get over the initial "wow" factor of all the cool hardware those pics, the true nature of the situation hits you. The BATFE is a disgrace.

    Dang. That's a crying shame. A couple of those almost brought a tear to my. To think all of those historic pieces sit and rot in a gov'ment storage facility, never to touch the hands of a mere serf ever again. :(

    The NFA MG registry ought to be reopened, and those things ought to be auctioned back to the citizenry. I'd be about the first worthwhile thing the ATF ever did.

    What's what screwy looking MG on he wall underneath the chauchat?

    You also have to remember that before any firearm can be approved for import, ATFE gets at least two examples for their collection so they can see how easy it is to convert, etc. This is only a TINY part of their entire collection. One of the really rare oddballs in that series is the Hotchkiss Universal, a foldable submachinegun.

    A freakin mini-gun, Krinkovs, AUGs, a FAMAS, Mg34/42s, thompsons, some ungodly anti-tank rifle, USAS12's. After I finished pleasuring myself to these pics I threw up at the though of them rusting away in the bowels of the JBT's lair. All this property should be returned to its rightful owners.

    I think this will stir the stuff so please don't ban me or anything, but I don't see a need to some of that stuff to be in available to the average Joe. I mean yeah it would be the coolest thing in the world to rock an auto sbr at the range or to be reenactments with a MG42 or MP44, but I believe you should have a very good reason to own something like that.

    There is also stuff in there that has me wondering, like the broom-handle mouser ?? pistols of the double barrel shotguns? (assuming the bbl is at least 18")

    How can you say that, with a sig that reads:
    <sigh> We have met the enemy, and he are us.

    It is an upside down and backwards plastic slide action shotgun:

    http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/sh08-e.htm

    And it is my holy grail firearm.

    (Also, several of the people in the other photo have "visitor" badges, so I don't think all of them are BATF agents/employees.)

    OK, I was sorta suspicious til the guy in the FN shirt, now I'm REALLY suspicious.

    Where exactly is the proof that this is ATF?

    I'd be more inclined to believe a private collection, maybe even one outside the USA.

    ATF wouldn't give 2 cents for getting something dirty, why the white gloves?

    That's museum treatment folks, someone that wants to preserve the value of the weapons.

    Might be ATF but the IDs are all hard to read. I'm skeptical at least.

    so who wants to plan a SHTF bugout to their headquaters with me? I'm sure their agents will be so busy stealing law abiding citizens only means of self defense that they won't have enough guards/won't notice a few "sheeple" wandering around:evil:

    What does "need" have to do with anything??

    Seriously, this is how our 2A rights get eroded in the first place.

    But here is my need: the Second Amendment was intended to ensure that citizens be able to be armed equivalently to the militaries of the world. To that end, ALL citizens should have unresricted access to any personal arm they can afford.

    Furthermore, if our purchasing must be need based, say goodbye to designer clothes, sports cars, SUVs, gourmet food, ladies makeup, and everybody's deodorant. 'Cause when you get right to it, we don't NEED that stuff either.

    /rant

    You think we could get a tax cut if they raised enough cash selling that stuff off?

    This, to me, is the most IRONIC pistol in their collection. The WWII Liberator .45, designed to be dropped in mass quantities on Axis-occupied countries for resistance forces to use to fight back.

    And it's kept in a place of oppression, after being taken from someone?
