U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms a nasty piece of work

August 15, 2008

A postscript to the misfiring AR15 that got its owner 30 month in jail:

A licensed gunmaker who has reported retaliatory attacks on his work by federal agents upset over his testimony on behalf of a man sent to prison for having a broken gun has ordered the government to return one of his projects.

“You have seized company property without any cause or court order to date. The company firmly demands the return of the firearm in question,” Len Savage told John Spencer and other officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in a letter, a copy of which was sent to WND and also later posted online at the War on Guns blog run by David Codrea.

“Therefore please return the property of the company [the firearm in question] immediately,” he wrote.

Is there no way to control vindictive bureaucrats? Or do their superiors actually like them that way.

Thanks to War on Guns for the pointer.
