  •  Waco (7+ / 0-)

    Actually, Waco didn't have machine guns, but good job parroting the ATF party line.  Local law enforcement had already been allowed to inspect the relevant pieces of weaponry, they gained access by knocking on the door instead of conducting a raid in force.  They concluded that the relevant weapons were lawfully possessed.  As I recall, the County Sheriff attempted to relay this information to ATF but was rebuffed.  ATF also had ample opportunities to arrest Mr. Koresh when he was in town, but declined to take them.

    Now I don't think it was a deliberate plan by jackbooted thugs to oppress the American people.  I tend to go with the saying, "Never attribute to malice that which can be attributed to incompetence."

    Still, it's pretty sad that you've not only got your facts wrong but you seek to use such a tragedy to further a political objective.  Sick.

    There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap box, ballot box, jury box and ammo box. Use in that order.
