Tobacco, firearms and the BATFE

The USA Today article quotes a federal government estimate of $5 billion per year in tax revenue lost to smuggling, with that figure only likely to grow. This black maket is, in other words, big business, and becoming a bigger and bigger priority for the BATFE.

That will, no doubt, greatly displease the Brady Campaign's Paul Helmke, who as far back as last August, was very offended that the BATFE wasn't acting like the BFFFF (Bureau of Firearms, Firearms, Firearms, and Firearms). [More]
