If the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is not trying to create an electronically accessible database which contains all the firearms sold to citizens in the U.S. (past and future), then my some thirty years in the information technology field has taught me nothing.
Red Pills sounds a bit worked up, but after reading the entire post, it probably isn’t without reason. Of course, it’s possible that the ATF is constructing this system to facilitate their lawful activities, but given all the bad we see from them on a regular basis (Red’s Trading Post, anyone?), it’s sort of hard to believe in their good will.
Like the man said, time to get cranking on the emails. It’s elections season, so they’re a lot more likely to listen to us now.
