What Does ATF Stand For?

Apparently Always Think Forfeitures is one that someone at ATF wants to promote, as in Civil Asset Forfeiture, as in the government being able to take your property without due process.

    That attitude is disturbing, to say the least, and unfortunately it reflects the attitude of too many in law enforcement. However, just because a govt. agency seizes property doesn’t mean that they necessarily get to keep it. There is due process of law, by way of a forfeiture action. But beware, because forfeiture actions are often civil in nature, with the corresponding lower standard of proof. At least that is the way it is in the Great State of Georgia. Here, indigent criminal defendants often attempt to represent themselves in forfeiture actions ( as their public defenders do not handle civil matters) with predictable results.
