Are there any JPFO members here? I've been looking thorough their site and wondering if they are looking to go a little far or not. Abolishing the BATFE entirely sounds great, but a little extreme at the same time.

Eliminate BATF

I don't see anything extreme about eliminating BATF as a federal law enforcement agency. Just create a special unit in the Department of the Treasury to license gun dealers and manufacturers and check their records to see that they are following the laws passed by Congress. Then if they find any violations, or THINK they find violations, they issue a warning and tell the violator how to fix the problem. If that doesn't work, they turn over a summary of the evidence to the U.S. Attorney's Office for possible prosecution.

Oh, wait a minute. That's pretty much what we have now. So maybe we better keep it. Until we get rid of ALL federal gun control laws and all regulations on the gun industry, we need somebody to help catch lawbreakers.

Nope. Part of the Homeland Security reshuffling was to move the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms tax collectors from Treasury over to the Department of Justice, so that they can pretend to be real law enforcement rather than overbearing revenue agents. This was a very bad move, in my humble opinion.
