The ATF isn’t any gun owner’s favorite agency. There are a number of reasons for why this is true, including a long history of hyper-aggressive actions by its agents trying to enforce unconstitutional gun laws on the American people.
Who am I kidding, that’s mostly it.
And while I catch a lot of flak here for supporting the enforcement of laws that I generally disagree with and think are unconstitutional, there is a line even for me. Stuff like what is being suggested here, for example, is about a mile on the other side of it.
Although I cannot disclose all of the occasions where ATF has recently reversed its prior determinations or devised a new interpretation of the law or regulation, I can disclose a recent prosecution, of a veteran, where ATF devised a new interpretation out of whole cloth and was successful in convincing the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio to prosecute. The case is U.S. v. Wright, 3:18-CR-162 and it should have the entire Firearms Community alarmed.
