The ATF wants you to snitch

The ATF wants you to snitch
Following the passed-under-our-noses Red Flag Law that was signed by Biden a few short weeks ago, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF, or AFT if you voted for that goofball) has teamed up with the Report-It App to allow people to anonymously snitch on their neighbors.

The ATF has said (Paraphrased) that the app will allow people to report suspected gun crimes directly to their local ATF Field Office so the ATF can open an investigation to kick in your door and shoot your dog.

With the ability to anonymously report crimes, the possibility of misuse and abuse by users of the app is very likely.  Currently, if you call Emergency Response to report a crime, they know who you are either by your phone number or by you telling them your name.  With this requirement, individuals are kept honest due to the fact that filing a false police report is a serious crime.  Now, however, with anonymity one screen-tap away, filing a false report will have no consequence, which can lead to extreme problems.

How?  With this “snitching app”, your neighbor can simply lie and say you have an unregistered NFA item.  After that, the ATF (Who love making their own rules) can drive up to your front door with their armored tanks, blow your door off of its hinges, rough you up, shoot your dog, and set your house on fire (Waco, anyone?) just because your neighbor didn’t like a bumper sticker on the back of your car.  People have done worse with less.

Guns & Gear on Youtube has a video that goes into a reasonable amount of depth on the subject.  Enjoy, and stay educated.  If you’d like to skip the in-video ads, skip to 1:28.
