Western Journalism is reporting on a recently surfaced e-mail that shows Kenneth Melson and other officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives did indeed know about the operation despite continued denials of that knowledge. The e-mail from January 2011 shows Director Kenneth Melson and chief council Steve Rubenstein discussing the operation.

Please Support S. 2188, the "National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012" As a law-abiding gun owner who believes in the Second Amendment and in the inalienable right to self-defense, I urge you to support S. 2188, the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012." Every state except Illinois, provides a legal mechanism for law-abiding gun owners to carry a firearm for self-defense. In passing these laws, states recognize that the right to self-defense does not end at one's front door. Passage of S. 2188 would ensure the right to self-defense doesn't end at one's state border. The 49 states that allow for the lawful carrying of firearms have proven that recognition of this right does not lead to more crime. Those licensed to legally carry firearms are among the most law-abiding citizens in the country, and they pose no threat to society. In fact, armed citizens are proven crime deterrents that make all Americans safer. Just as driver's licenses are recognized across state boundaries, so too should carry permits be recognized. I urge you to support S. 2188 and vote to pass this bill without any anti-gun amendments. I would appreciate hearing back from you on your position on this bill and how you intend to vote. Sincerely,
