The White House says tracking the bulk sale of high-powered rifles from border states gunshops which legally sell thousands of assault weapons that end up in Mexico each year is not an emergency, and has rejected a request from the U.S. agency that monitors weapons sales to do so without public review.Instead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' proposed requirement that firearms dealers near the Mexican border to report multiple purchases of high-powered rifles will undergo a standard, three-month review period, opening it to public comment.

You might remember Pat Sellers for his “Referendum” designed to protect the “Saha Farm” from eminent domain and as a rigorous campaigner for the infamous “Bloc of Four” Coatesville City Council. Pat Sellers allegedly has a connection to Larry Pratt.
Some other local connections to Larry Pratt are Colin Hanna and the Valley Forge Patriots, Let Freedom Ring, and the Coalition for Advancing Freedom; all of them Christian Nationalist pro-militia groups all of them here in Chester County. Larry Pratt’s followers are not just into alleged gunrunning, there are also right wing extremists among them that could turn into violent domestic terrorists. I believe that Sellers and Hanna and the groups they feed need to be watched, not for what they do but what their followers may decide to do.
