ATF border area "demand letters" upheld
Story here. I tended to think the challenge was very much a long shot. The statute allows ATF to demand that dealers report sales when so requested in writing. That's what was done. The only counterarguments that I can see would be Congress separately provided for reporting of multiple handgun sales, so by inference it did not intend a different power to be used to require reporting of multiple long arms sales. Absent a very favorable judge, that's unlikely to fly.
