. . . so they have to invent new stuff.
BATF to require "multiple-sales form" for long guns.
The short form is that government at all levels is going bankrupt the batboys want to increase the amount of paperwork that they have available to process. They are planning on doing that by requiring dealers to send a from to the batf any time someone buys more than one semi-auto rifle with a detachable magazine and a caliber greater than .22 at a time.
There is no apparent reason for this except that all the extra forms coming in will of course require a larger budget to hire more people to read and file the forms.
Nothing like overspending your budget to justify a budget increase. Doubly so when the project you are overspending on is senseless. Triply so when the people most likely to be targeted by your silly project are also the people most likely to oppose your budget increase and to oppose the direction the federal government is headed in general.
Now that I've written this I'd better go hide my dog.
