ATF's latest appropriation bill
Joshua Prince has thoughts.
Past appropriations bills had restrictions protecting FFLs, and forbidding use of funds to narrow the curio and relic list. These were missing from the current bill. But, Prince discovers, prior appropriations restrictions had contained language forbidding use of funds appropriated then "and in any fiscal year thereafter," which is a legally valid restriction, operating into the future, so it does not have to be repeated in later appropriations acts.
