My How Times Have Changed: Upcoming Senate Hearing on Firearm Regs Not What You Think

From all reports coming in now, next week's hearing in front of a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee appears to have to do with protecting firearms dealers. Specifically, giving the BATF more latitude in dealing with dealers who have minor paperwork violations. Currently, there is no "justice" when a minor error is found. Today's agency rules require that a dealer be thrown into the depths of hell, metaphorically speaking, if even a comma is out of place, or if someone writes the word meaning a number, instead of using a numeral.

Of course, all eyes will be watching. The Committee will be reviewing bills that are supported by the National Rifle Association and National Shooting Sports Foundation.
