Oops! Airsoft diktat officially rescinded! Was this a Chief Counsel's Office attempt to manipulate Melson into discrediting himself?
ATF Chief Counsel's Office slips Deputy Director Melson another exploding cigar.
The ATF Pressroom admitted to me by phone this morning that ATF Ruling 2010-4, seen here in Google cache, has been rescinded!
It would seem that I was right when I speculated that somebody maneuvered Deputy Director Kenneth Melson into signing something he did not understand would blow up in his face. He is beginning to look like Charlie Brown and the football. This is not by accident. The Chief Counsel's Office has run ATF for years as temporary directors came and went and they are not interested in any competition. Nor are they interested in cleaning up their act.
Meanwhile, in a barely noticed apologia, General Sebastian Snowflake presents the NRA party line on this ludicrous carnival sideshow, proving once again that there is nothing he will not excuse if his "Lairds of Fairfax" Homintern masters tell him to.
Teresa Ficaretta sets up Deputy Director Melson, again.
