ATF arrives on scene in Waco as weapon count fluctuates

Chris Eger for wrote an update on the Waco biker shootout, reporting that,

Authorities have revised the count of weapons recovered from this weekend’s biker battle down from over 1,000 to 318 as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has arrived to assist.

This news came just hours before gun control advocates parroted the count of more than a thousand weapons of all kinds recovered at Twin Peaks restaurant after a dispute between rival outlaw motorcycle clubs ended in nine deaths.

“The first number I gave this morning was a best guess estimate from looking at the overall crime scene and was over estimated,” noted Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton in a statement. “My apologies for the confusion and I should have waited to release a more specific count not estimate.”

….Meanwhile the ATF has disclosed that members of their Fort Worth Field Office have arrived in Waco to help process the crime scene and released images of what appears to be agents inspecting an AR-15 style rifle.

The agency also noted that they have been very active in prosecuting members of outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) for weapons violations.
