ATF - The Jack-booted Thugs of US Law Enforcement

Townhall.com :: News ::Congress Told of ATF Seizures, Threats to Gun Buyers More on the illegal activities of the ATF at various gun shows around the country. ATF - Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a federal agency.

Basically, women were assumed to be straw purchasers. Making a straw purchase - buying for someone else - is of course a federal offense. John White, a former law enforcement officer who is now a licensed dealer, had this to say.
"Every woman that makes a purchase, every woman who comes to my table to buy a gun was automatically [treated as] a straw purchaser," White said.
Blacks were also targeted.

It's funny, but I don't hear the Left screaming about gender profiling or racial profiling. I guess violating the law is OK if only hurts law-abiding gun owners.
