ATF should be shut down.

WASHINGTON - The ATF lost 76 weapons and hundreds of laptops over five years, the Justice Department reported Wednesday. Thirty-five of the missing handguns, rifles, Tasers and other weapons were stolen, as were 50 laptops, the internal audit found. Two of the stolen weapons were used in crimes. Ironically, if any of us did that the ATF would arrest us and put us in jail.

Additionally, ATF employees did not report 13 of the 76 lost weapons, or 365 of the 418 missing laptops, to internal affairs as required. ATF officials also did not report much of the lost equipment to the Justice Department.

They concluded that nine of 20 ATF field offices surveyed did not have proper accounting methods for ammunition. And they want to tell you how to sell your guns. There are more guns missing from ATF than from Gun Shows. ATF is worse than those they are trying to regulate.
