Has the ATF been thrown into knee-jerk status because of Muslims in the US?

a 63-year-old California man who had explosives with him has been arrested outside one of the nation's largest mosques in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn.

A statement from police says Stockham had class-C fireworks.


You will probably still hear people say, "Class C fireworks," as it is still commonly used, but it is an obsolete term and I discourage you from using it.

So.....? This guy had a few SPARKLERS outside a mosque......and got arrested? It looks like CLASS C is legal in Michigan?

Is this the kind of power you want your government to have?

    I'll just say this: The BoATF has never been known for its restraint and the high caliber of its agents. It also has a history of cherry picking concerns (I've seen this on a local level... it seems to be one of those agencies whose administrators flip a coin or consult a Magic 8-Ball for directives). I'd say that as bad as the DEA is at fearmongering, the BoATF is where the worst goons appear to flock.

    I'll admit I don't know anyone in the ATF, but I do follow the news and I've always found the ATF to be the mentally impaired drooling lump among its brethren agencies. Hell, even Wikipedia paints this agency as collection of thugs. I suppose this is the quality of agents the govt. needs to keep the unwashed masses in check.

    The ATF is our last line of defense against crazy Righties who hate Gubment - and their fellow citizens - and who have no compunction in killing both.

    See - Timothy McVeigh or Eric Rudolph.

    American Citizens who hate Democracy pose a bigger threat to America than any Muslim Extremist.

    Why? Because these Right WIng Americans are COWARDS ... through and through .... that's why they buy all them guns .... to make themselves feel like they are .... something.

    Now, don't get me wrong - I have my share of guns - but only for protection against the Crazy Righties we have in town - - - almost all of whom have a hatred for our nation - - - and almost all of whom are the biggest, full blown yellow bellied cowards I've ever met. .... and stupid too!

    Thanks for your excellent question!
