The Feds Want You To Rat Out Your Ex-Valentine For Illegal Guns
It's Valentine's Day. Sunshine, flowers, candy, romantic dinners, social media posts that ask if your ex-Valentine or even current significant other is involved in illegal gun activity. *record scratch* Wait a minute, what? Did we read that tweet sent by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms right? They want you to rat out your ex or current lover for illegal gun activity? Yes, yes they do.
UH, SIR, THIS IS VALENTINE'S DAY
Granted, Valentine's Day isn't a big deal for everyone and we all celebrate differently. Some people go all out with hearts and flowers and have a day-long love fest. Others are lower key about the day. There might be a sweet card and a heart-shaped box of chocolates. But when did Valentine's Day become the day to solicit information on breaking the law?
THE COMMENTS THO
Whether you take the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms up on their offer to provide information about a loved one of yours illegal gun activity is up to you, but the commenters on the tweet were casting major side eye at the ATF for even sending out a tweet like that. There were some commenters that wondered if maybe the social media person at the ATF had a little too much Super Bowl fun and that's why they hit send on the tweet. It does seem like an odd observation of the day, but take a look for yourself and see what you think.
