    A letter sent to Congress by 32 national and state police organizations and many other individual law-enforcement leaders noted that the "Tiahrt provision puts new and unjustified limits on ATF's disclosure of trace data to law enforcement agencies."
    Wow. 32, huh? Out of how many departments and LEO organizations in this country? If I recall correctly, the Fraternal Order of Police didn't even want this bill to go through, so people called them a 'Fringe Group.' Yeah. Cuz FOP is really 'Out There' with their ideas.

    This is why I don't read editorials anymore.

    Some of these 32 "organizations" are nothing more than a web address. You are correct....The FOP is pro Tiahart.

    Where do these people get the erroneous idea that identifying where a gun came from has any bearing on the crime that was commited with it.

    If you get a DUI, do they check to see which plant the car was built in or what dealer you bought it from?

    I'm sorry but I just don't get the reasoning behind this whole issue. Tracing guns back to their point of origin seems to be a waste of time and a misapropriation of assets to me.

    IMO The reason they are pushing this crap has to be because it is a foot in the door toward total gun registration, which will later serve to make confiscation easier.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    These gun traces are as useful as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    One thing I find interesting. Is that the last 2 biggest terrorists attacks in US history did not involve Firearms. Ummmm Tim Mcveigh used a truck with explosives, and Osama's people used box cutters, and airplanes. Am I missing something?
