The ATF is the same agency that sent agents to Ruby Ridge in northern Idaho tobuy a shotgun from Randy Weaver, induced him to cut off the barrel to less-than-legal length, then tried to use the sale to force him to become an informant for them. When he refused, they tried to arrest him. The siege of his home ended after they killed his dog, his son, and his wife, who was holding another child, an infant, when killed. There would have been no "crime" except for the actions of the ATF. All this happened under the watch of President H. W. Bush, so you can't blame it on the Democrat in the White House. The ATF's job is to enforce laws that violate the 2d Amendment of the Constitution. Is it any wonder that it is corrupt?
