Sorry guys but that’s sketchy as fuck 🤷♂️ The ATF has been known to ‘infiltrate’ militias, though the level of effort to do so I can only assume was very minimal. These days people post their militias on FB and have uncovered group photos. Threepers have good intentions, they’re just usually really fucking simple and haven’t used common sense with what they’re doing.
