You guys didn't do your job the first time.
The proposal will be published in the government's Federal Register on Friday seeking comments for 30 days, according to a copy obtained by Reuters on Thursday.
It was first published in December and had a 60-day comment period that garnered almost 13,000 responses. About 30 percent opposed the reporting requirement and 70 percent favored it, ATF said.
The second round of comment is typical for new regulations, according to ATF, and no substantive changes were made. After reviewing the new comments submitted, the proposal could be implemented or altered.
C'mon guys, pick up the slack. If the antis are beating us more than 2 to 1 something's bad wrong. Are you willing to concede that they are a more determined minority than we are?

SURELY you don’t believe the reported percentages coming from the ATF, Mike. But I emailed them the first time around and will do so again.
A local gun peddler sold 250 M4’s to one person at Christmas, the BATF**KS had a chit fit over that. They went to the purchaser, an 84 yr old farmer about it and he told them to piss off. They searched his farm to discover that there were no guns there. The BATF**ks are seeking revenge.
OTOH, why would we let the agency that will gain in power and mandate if the reg is adopted count the votes?
