The ATF has issued a new rule that multiple sales of high-powered rifles in border states must be reported to the federal government. The rule would reveal which American dealers are most active in the deadly business of shipping arms to murderous Mexican drug dealers.
The gun-nut wing of the House, apparently thinking that the “right to bear arms” somehow means the “right to sell arms to any bloodthirsty foreign thug who comes calling,” crafted a measure to block the new rule and stuck into a budget bill. The Republicans who voted to do that can Bite Me. But the insane Democrats who supported them can double Bite Me.
