It's a question that no one in the govt. wants to answer. When pushed, they say that they had reliable info that illegal weapons were out there. There were none, though the ATF kept trying to sell them some, which is a typical sleazy trick that the govt does - sell an illegal weapon, and then bust you for having an illegal weapon. It;s what they did at Ruby Ridge, too. Sell Randy a shotgun 1/16" too short, and then come to bust him for the very gun they sold.
