ATF Stalling On Ammo Docs

From Breitbart.com:

We sued after the agency failed to respond to our May 14, 2018, FOIA request for the 1,900 documents about the Obama administration’s AR-15 ammo ban efforts. The documents include ATF talking points about the “Armor Piercing Ammunition Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” and other records discussing ammunition classification.

New ATF Ruling Makes It A Crime To Use A Business’s Machinery To Make Your Own Gun

From The Examiner:

The ruling, signed by ATF Director B. Todd Jones on Friday, also holds that the businesses must “identify (mark) any such firearm and maintain manufacturing records,” and that Gun Control Act requirements may not be avoided by allowing persons to perform processes on machinery, tools and equipment a business controls access to. Excluded from the ruling are weapons and devices regulated by the National Firearms Act.

The “80% Lower” Situation

From The Bang Switch:

Here’s a not so well kept secret, there’s no such thing as an 80% lower in the eyes of the BATF — it’s either a gun or it isn’t. The phrase “80% lower” was coined by a cleaver marketer of incomplete AR lowers years ago and it stuck.

The actual regulation in the Gun Control Act that all this hubbub is based on states, “(A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon.”

ATF Used Mentally Disabled Teens to Run Sting Then Arrested Them

From Reason.com:

If you thought the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) couldn’t stoop any lower, you’d be wrong. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the agency responsible for setting off the events that led to Waco and were at the center of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal are using mentally disabled teenagers to advertise businessess that are actually fronts for ATF sting operations.

ATF Raids FPSRussia With No Probable Cause

From Guns.com:

When Guns.com talked to the ATF about this incident the ATF spokesman Richard Coes said he didn’t know why ATF agents suspected Myers of wrongdoing.  However, he told local media that “the claim is that he was using explosives and getting paid for it via YouTube.”

Tannerite is used in many of his videos, which is legal to own. Expect the ATF to “make a ruling” that tannerite is now illegal.
