    Whoops -- ATF's Milwaukee 'Fearless' storefront had little to ward off burglars

    The door had no deadbolt. The few scratches and marks told police the men had little trouble prying it open. Hard to believe it was all that stood between the burglars and a storefront full of goods belonging to federal agents running an undercover gun sting.

    The ATF's machine gun - stolen from an agent's SUV just weeks before the storefront burglary - remains on the street.

    Members of Congress are still waiting for answers from the ATF about how so many things went wrong in the operation.

    Between stories like this and the whole Fast and Furious scandal, I have a hard time believing everybody involved was dumb enough to let this stuff happen.

    I can imagine the headlines if that machine gun gets used in a crime. "Fully-automatic assault rifle used to ___".

    Hmmmm, maybe the so called assault weapons ban should apply only to law enforcement....

    Typical government operation, poorly planned and poorly executed and at a very high cost to the taxpayers as always.
