(AP) – A Connecticut shop that sold a gun to the Newtown school shooter's mother has lost its federal firearms license. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor, about 15 miles north of Hartford, in December. The agency didn't disclose why.

Reason? We don't need no stinking resaon.
Ooops. I posted an exceprt. Just forgot to label it as such. Sorry.
Did they do anything illegal? If not then what’s up?
Aren’t there numerable weapons and ammo factories in Connecticut? And if so, why don’t they close up and move?
I have been there. Nice guys. A while back some guy swiped a 50 call and ran out the door. He was caught, was also a convicted felon, and got almost no jail time. Tell me again who the bad guys are?
My banks no longer hold any positions in municipal bonds in CA, NY, IL, or NJ. They are debating the long term effect of liberalism on the above said other states.
Why? Cause Barry told them to, that's why.
If they really want to close you they will find a reason. Any technicality will do. Look hard enough and you can find one.
“...you need to get out of CA, CT, MA, NH, VT, NY, NJ, MD, IL, DE, CO, maybe even PA....”
States infected with the walking dead caused by liberal communism.
Yeah, ‘bout that.
Been trying and trying ........
They wear suits and ties, are chauffeured in limos and "work" in big marble buildings.
Rather: “The central question, if I may, and I know this is difficult, the central question is why?”
Clinton: “. . . because I could.”
No! Really! They forgot to dot an "i."
So what exactly stops this from being the way that Mr. “If Congress Won’t Act, I Will” does his 2nd Amendment end around? He can simply say that gun violence is so grave an issue that he’s immediately ordering that ATF suspend all licenses pending a review.
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers — and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system.”

Look for more law abidding gun owners and factories to leave CT and head out to the south or west.
"Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris. We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with.--Atlas Shrugged 1957 Ayn Rand
That's obvious - because they sold a weapon to someone who was going to allow herself to be murdered and have her weapon stolen by a mass murderer.
Don't be silly.
“Did they do anything illegal? If not then whats up?”
The Holder Justice department knows that it can always come up with some reason. There are plenty of laws out there. And, really, what difference does it make?
Who is going to prosecute the persecutors?
Maybe the Congress should hold Holder in contempt? (Done that, no effect)
This is the most lawless administration since Franklin Roosevelt.
It is discredit all those evil gun shops and their owners in the media.
The move to cancel their license was made to grab another nation wide sound bite or headline and milk the publicity of the tragedy for as long as possible.
