I hate to break this to you folks but the ATF has been doing this kind of crap for decades. I personally witnessed dozens of so-called “audits” (ie gestapo shakedowns) on small Mom and Pops Gun Stores in TX where actual completed 4473 forms have been physically REMOVED from the premises and taken to Washington D.C for and I quote “Further Review” never to be heard from again.
The ATF is nothing but a modern day Gestapo who makes the rules up as they go along.
Along with the FBI, DEA and IRS they are just another useless Govt. Agency that needs to be done away with.
