Is it even possible to 'reform' the BATFE?

The bill's introduction in the Senate, this time, with a Democrat as the first co-sponsor, perhaps signals an increase in Senate support for this important measure. I must confess to a rather strong dose of skepticism on that score, though--in 2006, the very similar H.R. 5092 seemed likely to pass, but virulently anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was able to block it unilaterally, despite Republican control of the Senate. With the Senate now firmly under (filibuster-proof) Democrat control, and with even "pro-gun Democrats" like U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY), who, as a U.S. Representative, was a co-sponsor of H.R. 4900, now saying that she would not support it as a Senator, I have my doubts.

What reform is possible for an agency whose charter is forbidden by the constitution?

The agency's only purpose from its inception was and is to violate the Constitution of the United States of America and the rights of the citizens therein guaranteed.

None of its activities are allowed under the constitution. Not a single thing it does is permitted by the constitution. That was true at its inception, that is why it was originally disguised as tax enforcement agency.
