Sacrebleu! ATF threatens French-style firing squad for agents who leak secrets

After months of anguished debate over mass shootings, gun control and Second Amendment rights, the Justice Department finds itself on the defensive after a training manual surfaced that suggests federal agents could face a firing squad for leaking government secrets.

The online manual for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — complete with a photo of a turn-of-the-century firing squad — was obtained by The Washington Times from a concerned federal law enforcement official, and it immediately drew protests from watchdogs who said it showed a lack of sensitivity to gun violence and the continuing hostile environment toward whistleblowers.

Disgusting

The current model of governance loses credibility each day

Oh the irony...well, not really.

If you want to know where to find the worst law breakers, look no further than those who enforce it.
