The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives posted two 60-day notices in the Federal Register today, the first under the heading Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Collection; Comments Requested: Relief of Disabilities, and the second under Certification of Qualifying State Relief From Disabilities Program.
Citing that the information requests will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget, the notice advises interested parties that Comments are encouraged and will be accepted for sixty days until January 22, 2013.

Isn't it funny that when we held the Presidency, the House and the Senate this shameless attack on constitutional rights was never addressed. The unconstitutional Hughs amendment could have been eliminated also.
We never see that though. All we ever see is demorats and rinos ratcheting up their attacks on our freedoms and never a rollback when they are thrown out of power.
The House should bring up the repeal of these vile rules every session until they pass. It sure would be nice to see who stands with us.
Maybe they are afraid that it will pass.
I agree. ALL federal gun control laws need to be repealed.
