Lawmakers call for probe into ‘botched’ ATF sting in Milwaukee

BATF LogoWASHINGTON – Several members of Congress are calling for an investigation into an embarrassing series of blunders made by the Milwaukee arm of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after a newspaper reported this week that the agency conducted a months-long undercover operation that cost taxpayers thousands of dollars and netted very few results.

“I am intent on getting to the bottom of the botched ATF sting in Milwaukee,” Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., told Thursday night.

Sensenbrenner along with Sen. Charles Grassley, and Reps. Darrell Issa and Robert Goodlatte, have sent a letter to Acting ATF Director Todd Jones asking the agency to look into allegations reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The newspaper claims that the agency conducted a deeply flawed sting operation that resulted in a still-missing machine gun being taken from an agent’s car, thousands of taxpayer dollars being lost in merchandise and angry residents saying that ATF officials reintroduced crime into their neighborhood. The operation comes on the heels of the botched Operation Fast and Furious anti-gun trafficking program.

Well what do you know? The BATF has blown it again! These guys remind me of an old movie called The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight! 😛           

But take heart America; the BATF may be one of the most incompetent agencies in the world but our Fearless Leader has actually shot a gun!

Obama Shooting

Everyone is so afraid that Obama is going to have his minions come after OUR guns when the fact of the matter is that Obama really IS a gun lover.

And I hear Michelle has some great recipes for cooking *skeet*.

Political theater at its finest!

    So did Saddam Hussein… As did Gaddafi and bin Laden…

    • Washington Armory says:

      As I remember it Hitler had quite the collection of arms after he “lawfully” relieved the original owners of them. Too bad he “disposed” of them (the owners AND the firearms)

  2. BobF says:

    If this picture was factual, it would have been out there before the election to show gun owners he also likes guns.

    He’s trying to divide gun owners between those who believe in the 2nd Amendment as it’s written and those who only have guns for skeet and hunting.

    I hope Michelle knows to marinate the skeet overnight or else it will be really tough.

  4. Bunkerville says:

    I can hardly wait for Michelle to whip up a great low fat, low calorie skeet dinner.

    Arrrrgggg…I have Fox News on while in the kitchen and the host just said the picture is of Obama firing a rifle. It is also in print like that and it’s driving me nuts. There have been so many instances lately with people making false or idiotic comments about guns! One Libber was stating emphatically that we should not have AR-15’s that fire 10 rounds per second. Can anyone pull a trigger 10 times in a second? If so, can you remain accurate?

  6. Katie says:

    The ATF reminds me of the Keystone Kops. They lost quite a few weapons too.

  7. LD Jackson says:

    It’s fine to be poking fun at the ATF and other government organizations, as they truly deserve it. At the same time, it’s scary to think they have the power and authority they do. Coupled with such ignorance, that is a dangerous combination for those of us who believe in the 2nd Amendment.

  8. Gawfer says:

    In ’08/’09, we all talked of the lack of experience that occupies the White House, and had hoped the knucklehead would surround himself with seasoned leaders, but soon saw his choices and appointments had less knowledge and experience that he did.

    Damn near every bureau and agency in the federal gov’t is being run by adolescent grown-ups, and as a result, their attempts to effectual are silly failures that have deadly consequences. But the American people saw fit to add a second 4 years the first, thus confirming the following statement:

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
    Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”
    Most frequently credited to Alexander Tytler.

    We are at the 236 year mark and screaming full throttle toward dependence and bondage.

    Photo-shopped.The experts have already un-covered 3 layers!!!
    The smoke??? Ha Ha
    The stupid liberal gurus phoneyed it in! All shot gun shells today are “smokeless” powder.

    - Preheat oven to 425.

    - Stuff skeet with ground lamb, italian sausage, garlic cloves, thyme, rosemary.

    - Inject skeet with favorite marinade.

    - Insert skeet. Cover with foil tent.

    - Baste with favorite sauce.

    - After 40 minutes, remove foil tent.

    - Leave uncovered for final 5 minutes.

    - Let stand for five minutes; 20 pounds of skeet should well serve a family of 4.
