Subject: BATF Site
Date sent: Mon, 20 Aug 2001 12:41:24 -0600

Dear Sir --

I was browsing the BATF web site and came across an area of the FAQs that seems to imply that BATF is attempting to reframe the Second Amendment right to bear arms into a Privilege (See Restoring Gun Privileges). I can not believe that this type of transgression can be allowed to go un-challenged, and although the web page contains information relevant to convicted Felons, the use of the word privilege rather than stating it as the restoration of a right is rather dangerous. Once the common language for a right becomes "privilege" it is that much easer to have "public" acceptance of "regulation" restricting the right. But of course you are all to aware of this already.

I was wondering if this would be a good topic for a commentary or article on your web sight, I for one would enjoy good scholarly writing on this issue.

Thank you for your site and patriotism,

Garth R. Leadbetter
