S. 941: To Reform BATFE

NRA-ILA has the news on this.

Quote:
Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) have introduced S. 941, the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform and Firearms Modernization Act of 2009.” The bill would roll back unnecessary restrictions, correct errors, and codify longstanding congressional policies in the firearms arena. This bipartisan bill is a vital step to modernize and improve BATFE operations
Among other things, the bill would eliminate many of the "gotcha" techniques that exist to penalize dealers, and it would "permanently ban creation of a centralized electronic index of out of business dealers’ records," a good thing if the Tiahrt Amendment should be repealed.

The exact text isn't up yet, but it will be posted here when it is.

One wonders if maybe they could fix the barrel ban while they are at it.

I'd say let's ban this most dreadful agency altogether.
