Big brother is pretty real. well, kinda

So.... Last week a friend of ours who lives in NY, posted a picture of our 100% legal party accessories on Facebook. (I have a 10, 08, 20 and 23 FFL/FEL/SOT/LMNOP)..... He came down, we blew up a ton of shit, and had a generally good time. When he got back to his place in NY (mind you, he's got a gun business and is an FFL in NY) he literally had his house raided by the ATF and the local bomb squad. Like they literally went through his whole house, even his underwear drawer. All based on a Facebook post made in Texas.
They took some NFA items to "see if they were legal in NY".... so he's gonna have a hell of a time getting them back.

The ATF agents and local officers where totally professional about it, so thereís no ire directed at them, as theyíre doing their job without being assholes about it.

Yet the idea that someone posting a picture on Facebook without any associated rambling about overthrowing the government, or sending bombs to former NSYNC members because youíre still mad that they broke up; would get your house searched, should be extremely troubling to anyone.

Pretty fucked up, if you ask me.
Not sure if this was someone who hates TXMGO, My buddy Danny, or the ATF has taken note we've tagged them multiple times in FB posts and other tomfoolery they wanted to say hi, but regardless it's pretty fucked up.

We're also not sure if this is retaliation because we sent in an IG complaint over them not transferring a grenade that we manufactured, and now want to posses personally (with a personal FEL as well, mind you)......

picture in question, taken in Texas, Geo-tagged in Texas. Blown up/disposed and destroyed in Texas.

That's a badass picture, but not sure I would post it on FB for any reason.

FB's "AI" probably alerted a mod based on the travel activity and key words. So of course the liberal mod turned it over to the gov who has nothing better to than hunt down home grown terrorists

Hope heís got a good lawyer and a solid plan to get the hell out of that state.


When FB loads pics, sometimes itís slow, and before it loads, there will be text saying itís a picture that may contain________. Pretty creepy that it can detect things like that. Probably hit on it since grenades are super scary and illegal and can kill bus loads of nuns in a single instant.

Iíd love to see what the warrant said...

In the words of Bob Marley, " No Facebook, no cry"

Situation completely messed up, BUT, if social media wasn't involved would he be in this situation?

Out of curiosity, has your friend ever made any posts that were of a political nature or spoke out against any officials?

Oh come on. Times change, dude. Nobody searches the Phone Book for businesses anymore. There certainly aren't a bunch of people listening to Radio ads or people going to local fairs. Social media presence is hugely valuable for businesses these days.

I griped about a post of mine being reported/deleted on facebook. apparently most things are reported to facebook by folks either you or him know and then are either automatically removed or manually reviewed.

I elected for a review of my post and it re-appeared a couple days later.

curious thing would be, who do you or he know that would feel the need to report these images?

one of the big reasons why privacy settings are important, that way you can limit who can at least casually browse what you post.

I don't know if yall know the dudes at TXMGO but Sean gives zero Fu*ks about posting shit on FB and definitely flaunts having an SOT/FEL/Ect. Its quite entertaining, but not surprising an acquaintance of his got raided, he's a habitual shit-stirer with BATFE

Stupid to post up much on the internet about anything controversial, especially weapons or arms. You have to think years ahead as to what you posted 8 years ago will get you a midnight visit and shot. Look at the poor souls in Cali that were not criminals 10 years ago.

That will still get people a visit and hurt. There was a guy recently that is an EOD/UXO instructor that had work done at his house. The person doing work seen some "items" in his closet and reported him. The "items were ALL training aids and inert. The fascists Government did come to his house and it wasn't comfortable for him and his family. The fascists still took some of his items even though it was plainly obviously they were not energetic capable.
I know what you think, what was a contracting doing in his closet? Never found out that answer.
