Just give enough guns to enough killers and watch what happens, no big mystery there.
There's no expectation, except it'll be bad, and whatever happens can be used as opportunities arise.
Budgetary, logistically, systematically, internationally, legislatively, politically.
Short of getting caught, it's a no lose scenario. At every level it was justified or rationalized differently according to needs vs/ personalities.
Why, is cause that's who some people are and that's how people like that operate. While coming out the other side indignant, they would trade lives for the stats....this ensured the stats.
Anti-firearms agenda folks in a position to make change don't care what you think, that's why. They gave guns to killers cause they want people killed, that's why. People are stats. Figuring it out is easy, but the reluctance or reticence to accept, making it fit into your value system...not so easy.
They don't change how they operate, given the chance, it'll happen again. Probobly double down on it and eliminate the stupid low level middlemen by going at it wholesale.
Team players will get promotions and whistleblowers off to Podunk. A good cleansing for the ATF going forward.
The uncomfortable question common to all who have had revolutionary changes imposed on them: are we now to accept what was done to us just because it was done?
