Austin gun show documents confirm promoter given ultimatum(TX)
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 11 February, 2010 | David Codrea

Posted on 02/12/2010 6:19:46 AM PST by marktwain

When we last discussed the Texas Gun Shows situation, attorney Jerri Lynn Ward had been temporarily stalled in her Open Records Request to the Austin Police Department for "any and all documents, notes correspondence, summaries, worksheets, memoranda, and/or assignment sheets e-mails and video or audio recordings," when they instead sent her this notice:

[T]he department wishes to withhold some of the requested information and has asked for a decision from the Attorney General about whether the information is within an exception to public disclosure.

That's ostensibly been resolved and they've coughed up some docs. I'll present them here, ask you to take a couple minutes to read through them, and then catch up with you on the other side.

Very interesting insight into the Austin situation. There is no question in my mind that the rights of the gun show promoter and citizens in Austin were trampled on by the "Authorities".

It is interesting to see that BATF tries to hide behind "confidentiality" by labeling the only emails we see from it as confidential.

Par for the course in our "secret laws, secret prosecutions, secret punishment" country.
