COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. | Outlaw motorcycle gangs are actively trying to recruit former military members in the Pikes Peak region, causing concern for federal agents.

The Gazette of Colorado Springs reports ( ) that a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms says the agency is worried about the effects of people with specialized training in weapons and explosives joining criminal enterprises.

Steve Cook of the Midwest Motorcycle Gang Investigators Association told the Gazette that biker gangs are a natural draw for people who have recently left the military because of their “warfare mentality.”

AN ATF report says the agency has been documenting biker gang members who are former federal employees, active-duty military, reservists and National Guardsmen since 2007.

  1. This sounds like a pile of bull droppings. There are probably a few people who join the gangs, and I suspect there have been some in the past, but I do not believe it is on a scale as large as depicted here. This sounds like a liberal attack on former military which also fits right into the Obama suppression and gun control attempts.
