    BATF Notice Bans Private Gun Sales In Texas

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is actively issuing directions banning private sales of guns without licenses at gun shows in Texas, despite there being no law to justify such demands.
    A caller to the Alex Jones show brought attention to BATF notices handed out at the entrance of theTexas Gun And Knife Show, on North Lamaar, in Austin this past weekend.
    The flyers (pictured below) state that anyone selling a firearm “will be asked to comply with” conditions including operating through a licensed FFL dealer.
    The notice also states that “Selling firearms in the parking lot will not be permitted.”
    “The lady at the front desk used her ‘mommy voice’ to get everyone’s attention.” Scott from Austin told The Alex Jones show, noting that the owners of the private building where the gun show was held were contacted by the APD and the BATF and directed to hand out the notices.
    Scott also told listeners that a petition in protest of the directions was being handed around at the show.

    Other attendees posted the flyer on web forums. One poster noted:
    “Here is a public notice from a gun show in Austin, Texas this weekend. Do any fellow Texans know of any law changes that took effect recently that make person-to-person gun sales illegal? Has anyone else seen similar notices?”
    “It was not handed out in the parking lot, it was posted at the entrance of the venue.” The forum user writes.

    “I spoke with the man who runs the gun show and he said he was told on Thursday to post this (the gun show was Saturday and Sunday). Of course, the owner of the venue has the right to prohibit almost anything he wants on his property, but that’s not what this notice says. It says ‘at the direction of the Austin Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms’ and that’s what bothers me.”
    The direction “asks” visitors to comply with its demands precisely because there is no law or regulation against private gun sales.
    Infowars is in the process of arranging interviews with the Texas Gun Show operators for comments on this issue.

    What a bunch of crap. Scare tactics, plain and simple. We don't want you to do this, even though it is not against any law. I wonder how many people complied?

    When is the gun show? if it's not over I say we throw a pro 2A protest or a rally or something. Scan it print it if you have one make a copy and send it in a WTF letter to a senator, congressman and the Governor of Texas who just so happens to like class lll weapons!

    And now we have three threads on the same topic...

    Only FFLs at Austin Shows?!?

    Can a mod merge them into one?

    And Kurt, it was from the show this weekend (17-18 Jan)...

    Here's an interview with the gun show owner:

    So why did you post in this thread, then went ahead and started yet another thread on the same topic?!?

    And how can the TGS gun show in Austin be the "oldest gun show in Central Texas" when the first one was in December?!?

    I wanted to make sure my buddies that monitor the Houston forum saw what was going on Austin.

    Why are you from San Antonio and you are patrolling the Houston forum? Are you a moderator or do you have nothing better to do?
