Sounds to me like the feds are going on fishing expeditions and won't stop with just Houston,I wonder how come they haven't checked some in over 7 years,if it's required by law then aren't they guilty of dereliction of dutyExtra agents press Houston gun checks
SAN ANTONIO — A four-month manpower boost is helping U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives inspect about 1,000 licensed gun dealers in and around Houston.
Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson said Thursday in many dealers hadn’t been inspected in six or seven years. Then, an extra 100 agents descended on Houston this spring to start clearing out backlogged work.
Dealers are required to maintain paperwork on guns they sell so the ATF can trace firearms used in crimes in the United States. and elsewhere. Melson said leads in gunrunning investigations quickly dry up if dealers don’t keep proper paperwork, so ensuring compliance is important.
The ATF has increased its focus on gunrunning and aiding Mexican authorities as violence involving drug cartels has escalated.
