Meager Progress

Ryan took a look at the 2008 appropriations bill and found this:

The Committee has heard reports that ATF has pursued violation revocations and denials against firearms dealers based on violations that consist largely of record keeping errors of various types that are unlikely to impede tracing investigations or prosecution of individuals who use firearms in crime. The Committee encourages ATF to consider lesser gradation of sanctions for record keeping errors.

The Congress Critters are aware of the problem, so why don’t they actually do something about it beyond talk? In 2006, before the Democrats retook Congress, we had H.R. 5092, the “BATFE Modernization and Reform Act of 2006.”  If the Democrats want to do something for us, other than lip service, they could reintroduce this bill, and move it forward.
