This is a brief opinion about the BATF's move to the Justice Department as well as some BATF history from the pen of Neal Knox.
Also check out a brief rant'o'mine on the subject, as well as this resource on why the BATF means to me what it means to me.
But I will maintain that the move will give the BATF much undeserved esteem. I doubt their history of transgressions against the people will cease. & lest we forget: (Temptations sing!) All federal gun laws are constitutionally prohibited!!!
An agency that enforces a law that violates the U.S. Constitution shouldn't be expected to respect the U.S. Code, or departmental regulations. Face it, when you make you're living violatiing the second, what's keeping you from violating the fourth? or fifth? etc...
