"Always Think Forfeiture" no more?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has decided, under Congressional pressure, to drop its use of the decade-old slogan "Always Think Forfeiture".

This does not mean, as you might suspect, that they will also drop the mindset that lead to the slogan, at least in my humble opinion.

"We've had it brought to our attention from several different congressional members," Browning (Robert Browning, chief of ATF public affairs) said. "In hindsight, we certainly would not have used this slogan if we knew that it would cause so much concern among the public. Nothing in this program is intended to deprive the rights of law-abiding gun owners."

Sure. Right. The check is in the mail.
