I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
ATF Forgot to Comply With Policy, Accidentally Creating Gun Owner Database:
(Sam Rolley) The government’s top watchdog revealed in a new report that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) essentially maintained a database of law-abiding gun owners by ignoring its own policies.
According to Government Accountability Office (GAO) auditors, ATF failed to remove the names of gun purchasers from its Multiple Sales (MS) database and another system called Access 2000 which allowed it to stockpile information on lawful gun owners by scouring the records of out of business federal firearms license holders.
My Commentary: Nothing to see here… Just an “accident”…
