Our Benevolent Overlords

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Our government, specifically the ATF, has released a request to vendors containing the following (emphasis mine):

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms requires the following items, Purchase Description Determined by Line Item, to the following:

LI 001, EXACT MATCH ONLY – Leatherman Micra Color: Blue – Part number 64340101K Engraved with:… “always think forfeiture”

A “Leatherman”, if you are not familiar, is a Leatherman multi-tool — similar to the once-ubiquitous Swiss Army Knife. The “Micra” requested is a small model suitable for a keychain, presumably to be given out to agents.

How nice of them to confirm where their priorities lie. Never forget — governments always want to tighten their control over their citizens, and it’s a lot easier to control an unarmed populace.
