Feds exerting muscle over states gun rights, ATF sends letters to gun dealers and manufacturers

Earlier this year Utah told the Feds to butt out when they did not require its residents to register firearms if the weapons were made in Utah and are meant to stay in Utah thus getting around the "commerce act" that gives the Federal Govt its teeth in that law.

Now, Tennessee has followed suit in a closely worded law (to Utah's) and in response, the AFT has sent all the gun manufacturers and dealers letters stating the must register each gun sold or manufactured in accordance with Federal law or face consequences?

The stage is being set for a confrontation between States rights vs. Federal bully tactics. This is just another example of States flexin their 10th Amendment muscles.
