Now is not the time to give up. Time to double down and make this congress, who claims an interest in cutting budgets, to de-fund the ATF. Put them out of business and I do mean out of business not consolidate them into some other alphabet soup agency.

Do we need a massive federal law enforcement bureaucracy to make sure alcoholic beverages and tobacco products get taxed, as well as enforce federal firearms laws? Is it worth what we, the tax payers have been forking over? Considering the record of the BATFE over the past few decades, why don't we just pull the plug on tax dollars for abuses of law?
