Quote of the Day
It is a sad and ironic twist that the ATF professes its desire to protect the privacy of gunowners, considering this case involves ATF’s covert surveillance program that for years has been spying on, invading the privacy of, and gathering private information about those very persons. It is more ironic still that ATF seeks to protect that information vis-à-vis Plaintiffs, nonprofit organizations whose mission is to protect and defend the rights (including the privacy) of gunowners against government infringement. This Court should deny Defendant’s request to force Plaintiffs to sequester, to not use, and to destroy records about a secret government program that fails to sequester, nefariously uses, and fails to destroy records about gun sales that Congress’s own statutory protective order declares must be destroyed and not used.

Plaintiffs’ Opposition to Defendant’s Motion For Protective Order
If the ATF people had any moral decency this would burn pretty deep. As it is, I suspect this will be regarded as a source of pride.
I hope the judge sees the ATF for what it is. It is a government organization without constitutional authority run amuck. I hope they enjoy their trial.
