A Wisconsin congresswoman is demanding federal watchdogs get tougher on gun stores that sell a high number of guns used in crimes, citing a dealer in West Milwaukee that has sold firearms used to shoot six police officers in Milwaukee in less than two years.The revocation of the license was dropped because the owner sold the store to his son and has gone on record that he has nothing to do with the business.
U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to explain why a recommendation to revoke the license of Badger Outdoors in West Milwaukee was never pursued - as reported by the Journal Sentinel earlier this year.
Congresswoman demands tougher gun regulations
With the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel breaking their arms patting themselves on the back for their "investigation" of Badger Guns, they keep piling it on. Saying there are "secret owners" behind Badger's and sounding almost disappointed that a recent shooting of a Milwaukee police officer "appears to have been sold by a different dealer".
The owners of Badger Guns have cooperated with local authorities even, reporting felons at their store.
If the current owners are so bad, why hasn't the ATF come down on them - hard?
