Full BATFE propaganda here. We may have temporarily prevented them from denying an import application, but we allowed them to continue their whittling down of what a sporting purpose is, how it is applied and this is clearly an oversight on our part. We the People have an oversight role in managing Congress, whom we have hired to oversee BATFE. Congress has failed to do that and we need to take action to ensure Congress does act to curb BATFE power grabs.
In November, 2011 we made significant strides in curbing some of BATFE’s attempts to suppress Second Amendment rights
The good news is that some of the public comments had an effect , and clearly BATFE sees some of the other public comments as a threat to its authority. So the work isn’t over. BATFE is going to continue to try and suppress your rights. Forever. Unless YOU do something about it. Congress holds the purse strings to this agency, so Congress needs to reign them in.
