Is it time for local governments to regulate the federal government? Typing that was hard but I had to ask. Yesterday’s events at the “range” got me to thinking. Apparently the explosive “experts” are anything but that. Apparently they have no concept of how weather, natural surroundings, or any other factors effect the sound of ordinance detonation.
It’s not like anything bad has happened in our area. So needless to say when calls started coming in of loud explosions all over Hamilton County, local fire and police departments were quick to roll out. Of course it wouldn’t have been a big deal had the ATF been even a little courteous. You know, like:
“Hey bro, we’re about to blow stuff up. If you get any calls just tell them the feds are showing off to the lawyer bros.”
But they didn’t give a heads up. And it scared a bunch of people. They called into 911, and local departments went out investigating, as they should.
So, is it too much to ask for a little courtesy? Calls don’t cost a dime nor a quarter anymore. Or should Hamilton County pass an ordinance requiring anyone, federal officials induced, detonating ordinance to notify local authorities as of time, date and location?
