    The BATF has been moved from the Treasury Dept. to the Dept. of Justice.

    Think it will make any difference?

    The letter I got from the BATF (that they sent to all FFL holders) said that we would notice no difference in service or regulations.

    They have also changed their name to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, even though they've been in charge of explosives for a long time.

    Thought they were supposed to shed the Alcohol and Tobacco portions of their duties?

    "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives"

    Does this mean we have to change their nickname from "BAT Farts" to someting else?

    Good. Maybe Tom Ridge and / or some former-Marine FBI hardass can give the BATF a good flushing.
