Yesterday we alerted our readers about the injunction issued to Red's
Trading Post allowing them to continue operation despite the ATF's
efforts to shut them down ( www.jpfo.org/alert20070501.htm
). We have more information on the specifics of the injunction that
we found very revealing.
According to the Times-News ( http://www.magicvalley.com/articles/2007/05/02/news/top_story/111336.txt
), US District Judge Edward Lodge found that the BATFE had exaggerated
and omitted some of its findings used to justify revoking Red's license.
According to the article, some of the issues Judge Lodge had with
the BATFE included double-counting violations, and hiding the fact
that although violations were found during investigations in 2000
and 2005, additional investigations in 2001 and 2007 revealed NO violations!
In other words, Red's fixed the problems found by the BATFE, but
that wasn't good enough. THe BATFE _still_ wanted to shut
them down. This is another example of not just incompetence but the
outright malice exhibited by this rogue agency.
JPFO has been on the offensive against the BATFE for years. We're
taking it to the next level with our forthcoming movie _The Gang_.
to learn more about this soon-to-be-released documentary that chronicles
the the agency's sordid history and why it must be abolished.
Can a government agency be abolished? ABSOLUTELY! The Interstate
Commerce Commission, a regulatory body introduced around the turn
of the century, was abolished in the 1990s. You can read more about
this originations and eventual dismantling of this agency at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_Commerce_Commission
We CAN abolish the BATFE. There are 100 million gun owners in this
country, and only 2300 agents. So why are we putting up with this

. You'll find an article and an audio recording by a victim of the
1970 Kent State University shooting of students by National Guard
soldiers. In the recording, says the former student, you'll hear a
National Guard officer command, "Right here! Get Set! Point!
The federal government has always maintained that a formal order
was never given.
