What is their malfunction? Malevolency.

A case of unmitigated unlawful* persecution for the sole purpose of providing grist for the mill of a parasitic bureaucracy:

"It didn't matter the government had repeatedly failed to replicate automatic fire until they replaced the ammunition with a softer primer type. It didn't even matter that the prosecution admitted it was not important to prove the gun would do it again if the test were conducted today," the magazine said. "What mattered was the government's position that none of the above was relevant because '[T]here's no indication it makes any difference under the statute. If you pull the trigger once and it fires more than one round, no matter what the cause it's a machine gun.'

"No matter what the cause."

This is incredibly absurd. It's an abomination. An aggressively cancerous growth on the idea that justice is meted out with any reliability (approximately the same as that of the rifle's automatic capability). The notion that this could even be brought to trial makes my blood boil.

The BATFE is a brutal and sadistic entity, and while I do not expect them to repent, I would hope that our citizenry would eventually wake up to the nature of its behavior, and pursue a course to abolish it in a peaceful but vehemently ruthless manner.

Always the inveterate optimist, I am. And to that effect, if you feel so moved, here is the defense-fund link for David Olofson via Gun Owners of America. (Note, be sure to read all of the print, the charge is recurring.)

Someone, anyone enlighten me to the goodness and worth of this action, if any exists. I see only evil.

*Unlawful, as opposed to illegal. Lawful denotes something both right and good. Legality entails none of the above.

Thanks, man.

The BATFE has a long and inglorious history of abuse; this is just the latest example. They are the American Gestapo.

It's my pleasure. The BATFE richly deserves it. Plus, I love to sling a little mud for a good cause!
