    WHAT?

    1. i can't believe that the people who run this shop played guinea pig for the ATF. If i were in texas they'd never see a dime from me after hearing about this.

    2. I can't believe that they believe the ATF would ever publicly admit to this or back the the shop up in anyway

    plus they didn't get any kind of agreement in writing.. ugh..
    ugh

    That is bizarre... no way the ATF is ever going to admit to it. That agency is way out of control and has been for years.

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    In print, with something from a DA, and video besides. Record every contact, in audio, reporting the gun sales.

    Assuming I was stupid enough to do this to start with.

    I can almost see the legitimacy of the attempt to ensnare a gun running operation. However the conspiracy side of me says they are trying to prove the US is supplying Mexico with guns to get a gun ban in effect.

    This outta be interesting during the fall out.

    Old Man Carter is in a pickle over this one. Like others have said - he should have gotten the directive from the ATF in writing. Carters Country is one of the largest firearms dealers in Texas - with 4 locations in Houston. My suspicion is that the ATF has been eyeballing these large dealers to try & pin "legal" sales of firearms - to the smuggling across the border. Its just easier to look at the large dealers, due to their volume of sales.

    The ATF needs to go after the orchastrators of the "straw purchasers".
