Here is another example of our government attempting to take our second amendment right to bear arms. 

Patricia Stoneking, President of the Kansas Rifle Association received an email, from her cousin who lives in Alaska,  concerning this about a week ago. It is legitimate and is happening!

Joel McDurman with American Vision News writes the following:  

Anchorage gun shops are being visited by BATFE agents that are requesting the shops 4473 forms as far back as 2007.

They claim they want to make copies of the “book”. This is defacto registration, against the law, and BATFE knows it.

Please inform everyone you know about this and notify any gun dealers you know that they don’t have to comply. Contact your congressman and senators and demand a full investigation.

Examiner.com explains,

Form 4473 is the official form that gun stores require customers to complete when they purchase a firearm. It is not intended to be a gun registration form but a sales record containing information on who bought the firearm, a photo I.D., and the official background check. The store owner then records this data in what is called ‘the bound-book,’ which is kept in perpetuity by the gun store and submitted to the ATF if the shop goes out of business.

The ATF has the authority to inspect or request a copy of the form if agents are conducting a criminal investigation. 

But nowhere does the law or the rules and regulations of the ATF permit the agency to require gun stores to simply turn over these records en mass as a matter of course. . . .

The ATF is already facing a Congressional investigation into its illegal activity in the Fast and Furious scandal, during which the agency placed thousands of U.S. guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels for the specific purpose of creating false statistics showing that most of the firearms used by Mexican criminals come from the United States. The Obama Administration would then use the false statistics to make a case for new gun bans and massive new gun control laws, according to the whistleblower agents who first reported the scheme in late 2010.

Curiously, the agency is also under fire for using intimidation tactics on various gun store owners throughout the Rocky Mountain and Western states, Idaho and Arizona in particular. The agency has also been shown to intimidate gun owners themselves, attempting to use firearms retailers as spies and making visits directly to the homes of citizens who purchase guns.

Every one of us should be outraged and speak out!

Considering that the BATFE can enter a gun store any time day or night, I'm surprised that they just don't go in and copy what they want under cover of darkness.  

Thank you for your support!
