MANSFIELD, Ohio—
The streets of Mansfield are a whole lot safer after illegal guns and drugs are now off the streets.

Sixty-four people were indicted Tuesday in a massive firearms and drug trafficking undercover operation in Mansfield.

It was a surprise to people downtown.

"Anytime you get that kind of stuff off the streets, it's a good thing," said Lynn Finfgeld, of Mansfield.

Traffic was stopped and BTW, Mansfield is a shit hole except for the Panera there

This is interesting. I always thought Mansfield was just a stop with some fast food on 71.

You're missing the point.

This isn't about enforcing a law, this is about trying to get good press for the ATF.

I guarantee that the news release today was not expected or desired by the people working the case(s).

Gosh, I guess the ATF really are the good guys now. The previous several decades of bullshit is all forgiven. I take back everything I have said about them.

The only reason I might ever venture to Mansfield is to take a tour of the old prison there.

Maybe someday I'll get around to it.

Does the NAACP and the CBC know about this nefarious profiling...?!!

I always find the term 'illegal guns' a bit irritating.

Because it is a very rare thing for the gun to be illegal itself, sure the possession of a gun might be illegal by that individual, but the gun itself is not illegal, (stolen maybe, but not illegal)

I hope Perry dissolves the ATF. If he doesn't nothing else, dear Lord let him do that.

Assuming of course, he wins.

I would think that if any of the guns were stolen, they should return them to the rightful owners.
