White House says no to giving ATF broad powers on border guns

The White House has rejected a request from the U.S. agency that monitors weapons sales to give them emergency authority requiring firearms dealers near the Mexican border to report multiple purchases of high-powered rifles. Instead, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' proposed requirement will undergo a standard, three-month review period, opening it to public comment....----Full article here---- Here we go again. This story is obviously written by some anti-gun 'journalist" totally ignorant about firearms ("high-powered rifles"? Scare-tactics language!) and clearly a running dog for BATFE. This "emergency authority" is nothing more than sneaky backdoor gun-banning by unconstitutional bureaucratic regulation, based on unproven outright lies and myths. The fact that they tried to ram this through under the nose of the public proves the point, and the only reason it has been delayed by "the white house" was because whistle-blowing righteous BATFE agents let the cat out of the bag. This thing needs a stake hammered through it's heart, never to be resurrected! (S9)
