I just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the solicitation of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms for the purchase of a quantity of Leatherman Multi Tools.

What is troubling about this purchase it that ATF requests that the tools be engraved with the Words “Asset Forfeiture" and “Always Think Forfeiture


Here is the DOJ contracting officer in charge of this procurement:

Yea, I read about that crap on another forum this morning. Sent my congresscritter a copy of the article. What a bunch of arrogant, jack booted thugs they are. Of course, we all knew that already.

Is there something wrong with that link or did they remove it from their sight?

Someone probably complained and they removed it.

The irony that a company by the name Freedom Enterprises will be making Leathermans for the ATF with an "Always Think Asset Forfeiture" engraving.

I just think that Tim is still pissed at the Shooting Sports community because of his support for John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential Election. He wrote some very corrosive and rude comments in public forums about firearms owners.

I wonder who else is as worried as I am that a federal agency is using our tax dollars to order equipment for their officers and agents to use that is engraved with wording encouraging them to seize assets of citizens?

They're spending taxpayer dollars to engrave on equipment? Anything more than USG Property? And they're primarily interested in seizing property? Is this the government by for and of the people? What's the next step here? Because it either advances in that line of thinking or reverses itself.
