Did WLT readers enjoy the special day with their sweethearts?
If anyone was involved in a lover’s quarrel, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms proposed a Valentine’s Day special for your ex.
The ATF used Twitter to ask disgruntled partners to snitch on each other for “illegal gun activity” as a “Valentine’s Day surprise.”
“Valentine’s Day can still be fun even if you broke up. Do you have information about a former (or current) partner involved in illegal gun activity? Let us know, and we will make sure it’s a Valentine’s Day to remember!” the ATF said in a tweet on Monday.
“We would love to meet and treat them to a Valentine’s Day surprise!” the agency said.
Valentine's Day can still be fun even if you broke up. Do you have information about a former (or current) partner involved in illegal gun activity? Let us know, and we will make sure it's a Valentine's Day to remember! Call 1-888-ATF-TIPS or email [email protected] pic.twitter.com/OdDIPdIzkr

Twitter users humorously responded to the federal agency’s devious attempt to entice former lovers to rat each other out and snatch firearms from the citizenry:

He's not a former or current partner, but here's a tip regarding an illegal gun purchase.

As Summit News noted, it’s another pathetic attempt by the Biden Administration to make Americans turn on each other:
Under the Biden administration, both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have called on Americans to report their own family members to the feds if they see signs of “radicalization.”
Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://t.co/bql36iSbig to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI. #NatSec pic.twitter.com/ZwJp5h5bWD

As we highlighted last week, the DHS issued a new terrorism bulletin in response to concerns over “conspiracy theories” and “misleading narratives.”
A previous bulletin even suggested that Americans who are angry at COVID lockdown rules or who express concerns about election integrity are potential extremist threats.
The American government has clearly identified its number one enemy; The American people.
