ATF Copying A&D Books

ATF auditor illegally recording an FFL’s A&D books

With video.

No registry? Here’s our ATF auditor copying every single page of our A&D books with her cell phone camera using an app that reads text. This data includes make, model, serial number, buyer’s name and address, and even the seller. We have over 20 minutes of footage of this happening in our shop in public view. Yes, this is illegal.

Damned right it’s illegal. The “no registry/database” was the “compromise” that FOPA gave us when we lost new machineguns.

It was compromise the feds could afford to make, since they had no intention of obeying the law anyway.

Oh, and note that Twitter’s censors hid the video behind a “The following media includes potentially sensitive content” warning.
