    It will never end until this rogue agency is disbanded.

    Nice!

    I hope the ATF gets their asses handed to them. I know in Texas and other states the ATF requires they be sent forms if a gun owner is purchasing more than 1 pistol at a time even if the person has a CHL.

    Where is the law that gives them this power?

    BTW: If you buy more than 1 pistol at a time the ATF places you on a special little list.

    Just FYI. Another special government list that we have come to take as the 'norm' here in the US. So sad.

    The same law that gave us many other atrocities. The Interstate Commerce Clause.

    The list is meaningless. Being on it won't stop you from doing anything.

    Agreed. It is meaningless so they should stop doing it.

    How is this even new? That is they way it worked 23 years or more ago when my dad had an FFL. They reserve the right to inspect your records to make sure they are properly filled out. They reserve the right to come check your inventory. I don't see how any of this is a brand new revelation.

    Probably won’t “fix” anything but not as likely to break more.

    When given the choice of voting for a Bush liberal or a Karl Marx radical, I guess I have to go with the liberal.

    It would appear that we are in too deep to surface quickly. Our capitalism and freedoms have been dissolving the deeper into Socialism we have gone. Our system needs to allow time for the socialism to come out slowly.

    But, but, but, we just had a flurry of people over on the other thread insisting that the BATFE folks were good guys and just keeping the guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.

    How could this be?

    This happened under the obama watch or are you going to claim it is Bush’s fault “again”.:yawn:

    I guess maybe they were bored, since they aren't allowed to smuggle guns to Mexico for the time being.. until the heat dies down anyway..

    Seems like a great idea send them to Alaska to cool down from US Mexican border area. Hope they don’t try and run short barrel pistols in to Canada.

    Not defending Obama nor Bush, but this is the way is always been done. At least since I used to sell guns at wa-mart. After filling out the form and customer left, we (the emplyee) would have to fill the customer info in the inventory book, that was later sent to ATF when full. In the years I worked there, not once the ATF went and snoop at the book or requested to take it incomplete, since when we received the guns from vendor, the first thing we would do was to write them down on the inventory book, so it would be idiotic for any agent to take the book when there is still some guns there that were not purchased yet.
