If the feds keep arbitrarily “picking and choosing” which laws they wish to enforce, the electorate is left with no other option but the same thing: picking and choosing which laws THEY wish to obey. Or not.

The Ares Armor raid by BATFE on March 15th, Saturday, in National City, Fornicalia.
Though BATFE stacks up for forced entry, you can clearly see the disinterest in the real cop on the scene — the solitary National City police officer who must respond every day for at least 10 hours per shift to actual calls for service — unlike the BATFE, perfumed princesses. As with the bulk of federal law enforcement, they have no case load, great toys, fabulous funding and all day to digest their lunch..
In the above video, you can hear the alarm activating because of the store breach. The single NCPD officer is providing nothing more than potential external threat protection though — at one officer — the perceived threat is minimal at best because, on a weekend day, many more officers would be present if necessary. And they have not responded in kind to perceived “threat.”
At least NPD and BATFE are sufficiently perspicacious to not arrest those who wish to video or photograph, in public, unlike some other LE agencies throughout the US — who have learned those lessons the hard way via large compensations paid against risk management.
Here, in this video, the BATFE cracks the Ares Armor safe inside the business.
And with that, goes much detailed information from private citizens to the US government simply because it deigns it can collect same.
Listen closely to the narrative comments made behind the video directly above. Highly interesting, I submit.
And for those of you who wish to know what an unarmed society yields, I proffer this for your consideration due to the loving embrace of Islam:
Last week Ares Armor, a company that sells firearms parts in San Diego, obtained a restraining order against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The restraining order was approved by Federal Judge Janis L. Sammartino and a federal raid of the business was prevented. ATF planned on raiding the company in order to gain access to a list containing more than 5,000 customer names. The customers on the list had purchased a plastic or polymer lower receiver from EP Armory, a part that is used to build rifles legally at home. The metal version of the receiver is legal due to being stamped with a serial number.
An unarmed nation finds itself abjectly controlled by those in power whose potentiality may overwhelm their rationality, balance, logic and proportion. Little, peaceful Sweden has one of the highest gun ownership rates on the planet and one can clearly see that, despite this fact, the country has not dissolved or erupted into mass chaos and turbulence.
Just what does the possession of firearms in the hands of taxpaying American citizens accomplish?
Oh yes. It keeps you from becoming a victim. A prole. A groundling. A serf. It keeps you free.

A federal raid by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on a San Diego gun-parts store chain has prompted criticism that the primary purpose of the operation was to collect the names and addresses of customers.
Despite a temporary restraining order, ATF agents obtained a search warrant and raided four Ares Armor stores over the weekend, according to San Diego’s KSWB-TV.
What the agents wanted were the stores’ computers, he wrote.
The ATF, which went to a judge privately to obtain the warrant, said it was investigating alleged violations of federal firearms laws that stemmed from the sale of a new plastic version of the 80 percent lowers of AR-15 rifles.
Building a rifle with specific versions of the 80 percent receivers is legal, the TV report explained. But the ATF said the polymer lower receiver appears to be manufactured differently with two parts, making them a firearm and illegal to sell.
But perhaps this is the crux of the biscuit:
The idea of collecting names and addresses of gun owners has been a fear of Second Amendment supporters since President Obama took office in 2009. They cite a historic pattern of governments that intend to confiscate guns establishing gun registration as a first step, to identify the owners.
Further, your loving federal government forcing you to become a felon in your own nation, because you stupidly cling to your ridiculous “gawd” and “gunz”? Perish the thought!
Except when the threat becomes reality:
In Connecticut, a law recently was passed requiring owners of certain firearms to submit their names, addresses and fingerprints. Hundreds of thousands refused, and now the state is faced with the possibility of having a large segment of its working population classified as felons. A similar issue is developing in New York state.
This, of course, on the heels of the BATFE’s operation Fast and Furious — which resulted in the killing of USBP Agent Brian Terry — by a weapon that was allowed to flow into Mexico specifically by the BATFE. The man who personally killed Brian Terry — is he here?
One bottom line?
In the San Diego case, the local Fox affiliate reported customers were getting nervous.
“I’m on that list,” one said, “and I’m waiting for the knock on the door to tell me they are here to remove my Second Amendment rights.”
That could never happen here, though.
Various laws in New York ban firearms upon what amounts to appearance. From the NationalReviewOnline:

Pass a stupid law, get a stupid result. This, Clash Daily reports, is a remodeled AR-15, and it is legal in New York despite the state’s “assault weapons” ban. (see above)

HISSY FIT: The New AR-15 Design is Compliant with “SAFE Act” and Has Gun Control Activists Pouting
by Jonathan S., Guns-n-Freedom
Prototypes for the newly designed AR-15 are hitting gun shops across New York, as gun shops and machinists have designed a rifle that complies with the anti-gun law. At least one gun shop has received a letter from state police saying that the new AR-15 style rifles should be legal in the state as long as they don’t have some of the features that the law prohibits.
The new gun law bans all kinds of semi-automatic rifles that have been labeled with the “assault” term even though these are very common rifles and are no more powerful than the average hunting rifle.
Once again, proving that Leftists predicate all their actions but upon emotions. “Assault rifles” look mean — they look “bullying.”
A mind is a terrible thing to waste, is it not?
