Some lawyer or news organization should sting em. Buy two weapons and secretly record the thugs when they visit. Maybe have the homeowner kinda shady looking to make ATF act more menacing and then cue the crying kids and wife. Pull some community organizing, rabble rousing, activist tricks on em.According to several gun dealers in Austin as well as one of our own staff members, the ATF is visiting peoples homes, demanding to be allowed inside without a warrant, and implying that gun owners could be terrorists for purchasing two or more firearms at a time.
Illustrating how lawless this is, a central Texas gun dealer who provided Alex Jones with the ATF letter, contacted Daniel Jones, the head of the ATF in Austin two weeks before receiving the letter to ask about news reports that President Obama was going to order the investigation of citizens that bought two or more rifles. Agent Jones told him no that law is not going to pass, and we cant enforce something that isnt law so dont worry about it. Of course, the law didnt pass but the ATF later enforced it anyway.
This is all based on a directive from the federal government that is completely outside of the law and unconstitutional. The law that would have required gun dealers in border states to report sales of two or more semi-automatic rifles to the ATF was stripped entirely from the text of the regulation when it came up for a vote in Congress on April 15, but as part of the Obama administrations dictatorial zeal to accomplish its agenda outside of the law, the program is going ahead anyway.
The federal government is enforcing a law that was never passed.
Followed by an immediate call to 911. 'Some poser with a badge and a gun is trying to force their way into my house. My wife and children are in danger. I may have to defend myself. Please get a sheriff here ASAP'May I see your warrant? Oh, no warrant? You're trespassing. Get off my property.
