Jim's Wins

From the Good News Department (yes, contrary to popular opinion, there is some good news to be had), a federal judge has cleared Jim's Gun Jobbery of Fayetteville and Wilmington, NC of charges that they willfully failed to keep their government-mandated records properly--and ATF has been ordered to stop harassing the company:

"According, the court finds [the BATFE] was without authority to revoke peittioners' licenses and ORDERS that respondent's previously issued orders revoking petitioners' federal firearms licenses are hereby overruled and set aside," the judge said.

If you've been following things gun-wise, you'll know that this is a common tactic used by ATF in order to revoke the licenses of as many FFLs as possible.

Sometimes, the good guys win.
