ATF starts wildfire in Texas

BATF has figured out yet another way to illustrate their complete and utter lack of utility value.

It seems that the clueless anti-gun and anti-useful federal agency was trying to "assist" some local bomb squads east of Lubbock a bit back "destroy some explosives."
Instead, the ATF idiots started a wildfire that torched over 150 acres. The money quote from the story comes from Tom Edwards, the County Attorney for Motley County which is northeast of Lubbock--
Tom Edwards, the county attorney in rural Motley County east of Lubbock, said on Friday that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives was responsible on Tuesday for sparking a fire that consumed 150 acres.

"You can quote me on it: That bunch has a real corner on stupid,"
Edwards told Reuters.

West Texans don't pull many punches, especially when offering their opinion about our idiots in Washington.

They blamed "winds." My ass. I blame incompetency. Who the hell starts igniting and blowing stuff up in gale-force winds during a record drought?

The federal government, I guess.

But Tom Edwards wasn't through--
"We've got the federal government that has refused to provide assistance to the state on the request of Governor Perry because of all our statewide fires, and then in waltzes federal agents and they start a fire," Edwards said.

"We had high winds, we're under a burn ban because of extensive prairie fires, brush fires, and in they rolled with the idea of blowing up things."
Can someone tell me again why we have a gun-grabbing anti-Bill of Rights federal agency whose powers keep expanding in a desperate attempt to justify its existence?

Only the incompetent, twisted feces-for-brains of the federal government could conceive of an agency who would give guns to Mexican criminals in order to study and document how many of those guns would be used in a crime.

Maybe we should give ATF some matches and send them to Mexico instead?
