Senate Letter to ATF

Looks like Ken is getting a lot of letters these days on Senate letterhead. This one is protesting the long gun reporting requirement the agency wishes to implement, and reminds them that they do not have the authority. The letter is signed by 17 Senators.

    Rand Paul demonstrates, yet again, that he is the man.

    Yes … but the fact that they also addressed this to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget speaks volumes …

    Yeah – it means “Don’t you be hanging out with that crowd, too.” as well as re-inforcing the message to BATFE. Lets see how much gumption BATFE has.

    Only nearly 1/5th the Sentate is pretty good on short notice, when there’s a health care bill trying to be repealed. Note most of these are old hacks. I’d expect to see Toomey on here if he was comfortable. If anything this makes you sense the value in “safe districts,” even if I, instinctually, hate the notion.

    Long-serving senators know where the bodies are buried… One of the reasons I’m not thrilled by term limits.
