Free Popcorn!

Brought to my attention by the Appalachian Scribe....

Legendary mountain moonshiner Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton has been arrested.

"ATF Agent Gregory E. Moore wrote in a federal complaint unsealed Friday that an undercover agent has in less than two months bought from Sutton some 300 gallons of the untaxed liquor and was poised to buy another 500 gallons in a single transaction. Authorities instead opted to raid Sutton’s three properties, including a barn and an old school bus he allegedly used to store his ’shine, Moore wrote."

Now, some libertarians might go off on a rant here about how this sort of the thing shouldn't be a priority of the ATF. Well, that's wrong. This is one of the main reasons the ATF was created. It is the ATF, its very existence, that is wrong. Well, I can tell you one thing. in the Blue Ridge Autonomous Zone there would be none of this punitive and moralistic taxing nonsense.
