A sledgehammer?….Really? You couldn’t get through MY front door with one! Poor security if you ask me? The first hit should have set off alarms!

The Guns will likely show up at a Mass Murder false flag attack by the Left (Deep State) Thugs while gathering Anti-Gun Media coverage. I say capture the SLIMES and hold a World Wide PUBLIC Execution……………..

I’m with you on that: apparent breasts, slender legs and arms, small, slim hands . . . . . and possibly a mask.

ATF more worried about the “guns” involved in crime than the criminals. Nail criminals to the wall, execute violent ones swiftly and watch this crap change. Disband the atf.

@Brad, You are on time and on target! Disband that organized band of gun runners known as BATFE.

inside job. notice thrasher doesn’t seem to be wearing glovesas his prints would be found there naturally anyway. analysis of surveillance cameras and comparison of body size/structure should reveal employee, regular customer or family/friend of employee.

weaver, professional criminals don’t wear gloves, anymore, except an an expedient. The pros paint the pads of their fingers with clear nail polish, so that they don’t look out of place and avoid leaving prints. Just a heads up.

I believe we will see more of this, very likely done by far-Left anarchists, in preparation for some planned violence either leading up to or following the election, depending. Call it a gut feeling. Don’t be surprised.
