    Rant - DEA agents can not ID a common weapon.

    I was watching the TV series "DEA" last night. They were in Jersey working on busting a crack house, that turned into a drawn out hunt for a pot dealer.

    When they finally found the first line importer, and his 20# of pot, they also found a gun. They opened the case and I immediately knew what it was. A Kel Tec Sub 2000. Nicely folded in half in a nice soft shell case.

    So what do each and every one of the DEA agents tearing apart the house call it? A MAC 10!


    This is a Mac 10


    This is what the DEA agents find. A Kel Tec Sub 2k


    As I am watching the guys fumbling with it, I am saying to myself, "If you don't know what it is or how it works, stop messin' with it!"

    Then in their commentary after the bust they were so stoked that they got a "Machine gun" and lots of bullets off the street.

    Must of been the same DEA agent who was "the only person in this room who's professional enough to handle a Glock .40" right before he shoots himself in the thigh!

    Everyone remember that video?

    It's easy to see how the drug lords are so successful in getting drugs into the country. I know there's a rigorous screening for DEA agent candidates but it sounds like they're screening for the wrong thing...political correctness comes to mind.

    and the media can mess it up too. How often do you hear a magazine called a "clip"?

    A mac 10 sounds much more ganglike than a Kel tec...

    My guess is the script told them what to say and the Director didn't like the sound of Kel Tec...After all, when's the last time you heard Kel Tec mentioned in a rap song?

    Who cares? Their job is to be experts on illegal drug trade, not to be gun geeks.

    ... but when their jobs spill over and fuel the gun-hating media frenzy due to uninformed pap, then folks should care.

    When the speaker indicates it's a "machine gun," then the person is complicit in the frenzy. That was the point.

    Honestly, I doubt most of the people on this forum could tell the difference between an automatic rifle and a semi-automatic rifle.

    The example was a Mac 10 vs a KelTec 2000. The point was, feeding the monster is what it is: complicity, shooting one's mouth off about what isn't known to be true.

    It's like the difference between a sheriff's deputy reporting the man shot the intruder, versus saying the man murdered another. Two different worlds, and by golly if one is going to claim the worst then it bloody well better be correct. Granted, this Mac10/KelTec distinction is a bit more subtle, but shooting one's mouth off about "machine guns" when that hasn't been established isn't too different.

    It all comes down to one thing. It's what is considered "reality" TV. It's scripted and it's BS and not worth watching. Almost as entertaining as American Idol, which have never watch either.

    Remember they are DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency). I wonder if they have ever sampled the product?
