    The only statement in that article that surprises me is that an Amish farmer had 600 firearms. The rest is par for the course…
    As per the usual, the ATF is full of ****. They make a rule saying you can’t “buy and sell to turn a profit without a license” and find someone selling a private collection and seize the collection without even knowing if he’s broken any laws. Doesn’t sound like he has, but that’s a large collection. No laws against owning a collection that large, but we’re gonna take it anyway. Guilty until proven innocent and we will drag it out indefinitely. Meanwhile we can lose more guns than that in Fast and Furious games and nobody lifts an eyebrow.
    10:1 the old farmer hasn’t broken one law. The ATF may up and decide he has and make an example of him anyway. Rogue agency that they are.

    If this doesn't scare anyone that has sold guns they legally bought and then legally sold, it should. But most people will just read the "600 guns" tag and not even bother to read that they went after him even though they admit that they have no proof he broke any laws.

    600 guns = a whole lotta cheddar from that dairy farm!

    I'm of the opinion that once you own it, it's none of the government's business what you do with it unless it turns up in a crime AND they have proof you knew beforehand that criminal use was the intended purpose of the purchaser. If I buy a gun, take it to the range, try it, don't like it, sell it, and repeat the process once a week for a year, that's got nothing to do with anybody else, and the government can bite my a$$ if they don't like it.

    ATF and FBI need to be dissolved and their responsibilities compartmentalized. ATF should be held to Article VI and the Second Amendment and only be allowed to police imports if anything. The DOJ may need closer inspection because they are ultimately allowing these constitutional abuses via ATF and FBI and others. The buck stops here it's not acceptable, not ethical, not moral, and NOT constitutional!

    And if you are Amish, do you buy ammo or reload your own?

    Being Amish is not the way it used to be from what I have seen. The one I have been involved with have cell phone and other modern things of use.
