The media and Congress talk about a common-sense approach to gun control. Why don’t we start by shining a light on the issues and lack of resources at the Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Inspectors? CBS News aired a program on July 31, 2016, titled “ATF under the gun.” A quote from that program:
“So far, the ATF has actually survived, however its critics have actually scored major success in efforts to hobble the bureau. Technically, the bureau has been intentionally kept in the last century. They should trace guns used in crimes the old-fashioned way: On the phone. They did this 370,000 times last year.”
This explains why an individual can stock 23 assault rifles without red flags going off. There is no place for warnings to go off to.Write your congressional agents and inquire to do their job and bring the ATFE innovation into this century. Where are the funds to enforce the current laws?
