Very interesting news:

CONGRESS CONFIRMS LACK OF ATF TESTING STANDARDS

Tuesday 01, 2005

GUN OWNERS, 1 - ATF, 0
MAJOR DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS
We're proud to announce a major breakthrough in the long battle to curb the abuses of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The Congressional Research Service (CRS), an arm of the U.S. Congress, has issued a memo telling the world what we've always said (http://www.jpfo.org/batfearticles.htm (http://www.jpfo.org/batfearticles.htm)): that ATF "experts" use arbitrary, made-up standards when they bring charges against gun owners and testify against us in court.

Is this one safe to comment on or will I hear black helicopters and see strange sedans parked out in front of my house?

This is one of those situations where hopefully the parties that have exposed the bureau have a well thought out plan for how to proceed, or this potentially turns into "be careful for what you ask for. Once the rules are opened for revamping, both sides can play

I would think that the green book (Reference Guide) ought to incorporate the
classification or determination letters prior to filing them. They would then build on a knowledge base over time and maintain some semblance of continuity.
Strikes me as strange that one of the "office manager" types haven't devised a cross referencing system to retrieve these classification or determination letters before sending them to the basement. They are each information for the next determination.

Then again, efficiency is not required to work in government.

Hey, if they didn't start from scratch each time they would have to find some other way to justify their budget for all those positions

All I have to say is FINALLY! Someone find out how crooked they are. I hope in the future they will do the RIGHT thing.
