The "Breaking News" section has had ALL of the AWB Letters and FAQ removed.

WHY?
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 7:10:50 AM EST
It's not just the sunset, folks...

All ATF AWB information is gone, including the old 'how to comply with the AWB' FAQ...

It's as if the thing never existed....

They have scrubbed the entire web site of anything to do with assault weapons except for a letter dated 1998 from Bill Clinton.

Enter "assault weapons" in the ATF search engine.

According to the NRA, the AWB doesn't end until midnight tonite...

FINAL COUNTDOWN ON CLINTON GUN BAN IS HERE--
Take Nothing For Granted!!!!

With Congress back from its Summer District Work Period, only one legislative work day remains before the Clinton gun ban is due to expire at midnight September 13!

As time runs out on this flawed and ineffective legislation, we are once again asking you to call your lawmakers to ensure they know that their voting constituents do not want to see this ban extended even one second longer than its scheduled demise.



Received this from the ILA this morning...

Does this mean we have to have another party at midnight tonight?
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 7:17:21 AM EST
It's a trap! The AWB actually expires tonight and now they are going to take all the threads from today of people posting pictures of their illegal assault weapons and send them off the Club Fed.

Crap, I seem to have lost my tinfoil.....

GO TO WWW.ATF.GOV

Look under "What's New"

The FAQ is still there.

Hehehe, I sent the ATF an email, the webmaster just replied with "Thanks, I have been busy and I probably deleted the link by accident. It should be up now, please check."

It's back on the front page.
