BATFE seeks to circumvent Congress and add onerous regulations to purchasing long arms

Kurt Hoffman brings us up to date on an NRA-ILA alert. This is all in relation to Mexico's assertion that many of the guns used by drug gangs in Mexico originate here in the U.S.  For more history on this, go here.

Of course, the BATFE is trying to enact this new regulation bereft of congressional input at all.  Currently only multiple handgun purchases are required to be reported per the Gun Control Act of 1968.

They are trying to sneak this past without passing a new law.  I can't think of a better time for them to attempt this, than right now, with Congress' collective attention on another Omnibus spending bill that has the nations undivided consideration.
