Remember the comments by the pro-gun leadership concerning the Obamists? They don't expect a massive assault on gun ownership as the Slick Willy Gun Ban was. They are expecting an "incremental approach." These increased C&R inspections may be part of the Obamists' strategy.
Let's face it, even with the uptick in firearms ownership in the month before and the months following Obama's election as evidenced by the surge in NICS checks and the massive upsurge in CCW permit applications, the number of shooters and collectors who hold C&Rs is small. We're a soft target. It would not rate real news coverage in the mainstream media if the BATFE started revoking or refusing to renew C&Rs. Were that to happen - and I am not saying it is, or that it will - I'd see it as the thin edge of the wedge of the attack on our Second Amendment rights.
Do keep us advised of what happens when you meet with them, Paper. Their request to meet with you may be the first goose heading south that warns us winter is coming.
