I was listening to the local (Louisville, KY) hunting and fishing show on the radio and they spent the entire 3 hour broadcast discussing this issue, as opposed to water temperature and 10+ pointed buck sightings. Apparently, there was an ATF initiative (“Operation Fast and Furious”) to combat Mexican drug cartels, involving the tracking of assault weapons. One of these was used to kill a border patrol agent. As a result the Feds are stepping in and hoping to implement
a plan to require gun dealers in four Southwest border states—California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas—to report the sales of high-power rifles under certain conditions in an effort to stem the flow of guns to Mexican drug cartels.
I’m surprised this hasn’t made a bigger splash in media pool, but I guess we have a two track mind: Anthony and debt, or NFL and NBA lockouts…
I’m no gun nut one way or the other, but I figured it was worth signaling (and forgive me if this was already mentioned in another thread).
