Red's Trading Post Ordeal May Finally Be Over

The Casper Star-Tribune reported on May 23rd, that Red's Trading Post, an Idaho gun shop that went to federal court to keep the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from stripping it of its gun license has reached a tentative settlement with the government. No details are available as of today but it appears that Red's will be able to continue operations. I noted when looking for an update on the case that Red's has shut down their blog.

This was just one more case of BATF overreaching. If you have not already done so, please contact your congressman and ask them to co-sponsor and support H.R. 4900 - the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform and Firearms Modernization Act of 2007.” You can find talking points here that you can use when you contact your congressman.
