The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office are asking for help from the public in gathering information about the theft of approximately 559 pounds of high explosives from a USFS explosives bunker located near Red Lodge.
We’re not talking just blasting agent either.
How serious is the ATF taking the theft? They’re offering a $5,000 reward. Their warmth and sincerity given the theft occurred with forced entry makes me feel all sorts of warm and fuzzy inside. Doubly so given the propensity of the government, not to mention the BATFE, is more than willing to throw civil rights and liberties to the wind.
[Sarcasm] But remember, it’s me and you that they need to restrict. The government could never fail us. [/Sarcasm]
