Do you have the capless filler?

LINK? SOURCE?

Google it and all you get is this BITOG thread. But lets carry on for more pages about the horrors of the alphabet agencies and the gubm't goons...


(edit) and this is in the "interesting articles" forum? I would think conspiracy/off topic would be a better fit.

Meh...wouldn't think twice about it. there are lots of things that congressman ask agency to look into or crazy bills they try to get added on to other bills. It's all show for the constituents back home.

Wouldn't the ATF be a logical regulator? Alcohol, Tobacco, and Funnels. Get them out of guns and explosives.

Overall we need to do one of two things: Stop making stupid non-functional regulations, or revive the old mental hospitals and confine all the people that think they are helping (anything).

I suppose it would also work to restrict the rule making to people with sufficient intelligence and knowledge, and not reporting in one form or another to a politician owned by some special interest group with more money that one can easily imagine. Naah.
