Real Title: ATF’s New Devastating Appropriation Bill – Previous Industry Protections Appear to be Lost!
By Joshua Prince, Esq. | January 17, 2014
On January 15, 2014, the Congress approved H.R. 3547 – the “Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014,” which is now awaiting the President’s signature. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 seemingly removes key protections for the Firearms Industry.
.........That which is extremely clear from H.R. 3547 is that the Administration is dedicated to destroying our Industry and our Congressional lobbying efforts are NOT sufficient. The removal of the above-mentioned protections for FFLs is indicative of the lack of understanding and comprehension of those issues that face our Industry. If our Industry is to survive this Administration, we must come together, through organizations and trade associations, to challenge the Administration and provide for additional lobbying efforts.

Done. Good reading. Thanks for posting.
Interesting, but a little premature to be calling for battle stations.
While it is worth keeping your eyes on, it does not authorize the ATF to start spending money on employees to change the C&R rules. What it may do is to allow for the ground work to have it happen in the future if the House adopts the Senate language.
The Legislative intent of previous bills was to provide "futurity", that is permanence of the language by intent and it appears to have done so. But it is disconcerting for the Executive Branch to ASK for exclusion of that language as it is laying the groundwork for future changes.
And BTW: the State Department has de facto implemented new C&R importation rules by banning the importation of M-1 carbines and Garands from Korea, even though they are of high interest to collectors and have historical significance. Those are the people we need to target.
From ITAR, to C&R, to the Keystone Pipeline and onto who we align ourselves with in the World, the State Department is being used as the blunt instrument to implement the "change" really intended by this administration.
Barry`s just Lurking for Any chance to push his Anti-Gun Agenda. This scum will try Anything so "We The People" Need to be Wary and Pay Attention as not only does he Lie but he`ll use anything to get his way. I`ve Never seen any President as low as he is.
The current administration is very good at talking, not so good at accomplishing things. When they do get something implemented, it generally blows up in their face and they need to rush to the next crisis in an attempt to make us forget about their failure. Currently they are running away from Healthcare and are trying out "Income Inequality" after "Immigration Reform" went nowhere. I wouldn't be surprised if gun control is the next attempted distraction but I seriously doubt they will have any more luck pushing that agenda to the people than everything else they've tried since Obamacare turned into such a fiasco.
Well, this is a more subtle and less political attempt than any of the things you mention which makes it more dangerous as it is out-of-sight for most people. But with that said, it does not have implications beyond an attempt to lay groundwork for the years ahead.
I read this as a budget battle not a transfer of rights. In 2003 Bush made the DHS at the same time he shifted the ATF from treasury to justice. Now comes the fly and ointment. DHS has al the budget. ATF is a step child of Justice they are into attorneys and laws not enforcement. The step child ATF is over shadowed by most other agancies and I think this is their attempt at getting a budget so they can grow and get some of the clout back that they lost.
I could be way wrong but that is how I read this.
In the wake of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, on September 11, 2001 President George W. Bush signed into law the Homeland Security Act of 2002. In addition to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the law shifted ATF from the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Justice. The agency's name was changed to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. However, the agency still was referred to as the "ATF" for all purposes. Additionally, the task of collection of federal tax revenue derived from the production of tobacco and alcohol products and the regulatory function related to protecting the public in issues related to the production of alcohol, previously handled by the Bureau of Internal Revenue as well as by ATF, was transferred to the newly established Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), which remained within the Treasury Department. These changes took effect January 24, 2003.
