I am almost bored hearing about how the Obama White House is going to use executive orders to impose some kind of gun control. Stop threatening and do it, already! Let the struggle begin.

But sometimes the news gets interesting. For example, recently Eric Holder tried to get us all to feel sorry for the impoverished agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. When discussing options, Reuters reports

“Those options will have to include a ‘strong and robust’ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the chronically under-funded agency that enforces federal gun laws, he said.”

Poor, poor, BATFE! So weak and frail! So much in need of funds so they can do so much good…

Seriously? The BATFE’s body count is already strong and robust. Ruby Ridge involved other jackbooted agencies, but the BATFE was a major player. And then there was Waco and the David Koresh cult. They insisted on a grand siege rather than simply arresting Koresh when he was out jogging. Their self-serving decision, along with other bad decisions, led to the incineration of women and children.
