Judicial Watch sues ATF for info on proposed AR-15 ammunition ban

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a component of the Department of Justice, seeking records of communications related to a proposed reclassification that would effectively ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition as armor-piercing. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00600)).

We'll be digging into dusty paperwork to find out exactly what happened during Obama's pen and phone period for quite a while, I suspect. But Judicial Watch usually gets results eventually. They recently obtained another batch of IRS documents related to the targeting scandel; it looks like this batch of documents is mostly training manuals, but the IRS guarded them jealously and the timeline of changes to the training materials may be instructive.
