You all were warned that Project Exile would be misused against non-violent "criminals". Read this and see if you still support the program: [url]www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3afbfe4a6fa0.htm[/url] Then Bob [Bob Glass] mentioned this: "Project Exile makes no statutory distinction between a crack dealer with a murder record who lounges on the street corner looking for a robbery victim, and a single mother who carries an unregistered .38 in her purse without a CCW permit." Rich Marianos, Agent-in-Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, replied that he makes the decision whether someone "is a criminal or not".

I think that it is insane. A criminal should be sentenced based on the crime and intent, not whether he or she chose to use a gun, a knife, a baseball bat, or a car. Do you think that Susan Smith's two little boys are any less dead than they would be if she had used a gun instead of rolling her car into a pond? If she had shot them, it would have been treated as a gun/domestic violence crime. Nobody considers it a car/domestic violence crime or a water/domestic violence crime. Consider also the wackjob b*tch that led her kids into the shed a couple of years ago here in Phoenix and lit the shed on fire. 2 of her kids are dead and she is getting her day in court. Nobody is calling that a fire/domestic violence case. Anyone who thinks that treating gun crimes differently than any other crimes is a good idea has lost sight of the basic principals of gun rights. We've always argued that "guns don't kill people, people kill people," but some of us don't apply that simple logic, and instead capitulate to the antis. -Andy

"Politically Right" is BS. It's a compromise, and we all know about Neville Chamberlain compromising with Hitler. -Andy

to: SomeGuyInAHat. Very true. Why would it matter what weapon you use. The victum is still dead.

Oh yea. And who would want some loony at ATF deciding if you're a criminal or not. Sounds like a God complex or something. Those types scare me.

The real scary thing about this is that this kind of crap from the ATF isn't even suprising anymore. I mean it pisses me off to no end obviously, but after all the other heinous things they've done it just doesn't suprise me anymore. What does suprise me is that the masses just don't seem to be to bothered by it all.
