If I remember correctly, there was a Gun Talk radio / podcast I believed that what the ATF / BATF was against the law. It was a big stink because they were going to all of the stores and collecting all of the material.
Quick google found this info - I believe this was what Tom G' was talking about...
BATF in Alaska DEMANDING "Bound Book" from Gun Store to copy in its totality!!http://www.examiner.com/conservative-in-national/breaking-confrontation-between-alaska-gun-store-and-atf
Anchorage, Alaska indicates that a local gun store has refused to comply with an order from the ATF to turn over to the agency the official 'Bound Book' that firearms retailers are required to keep on site on customers and their purchases, photo I.D.s, and background checks.
The store's refusal has provoked a confrontation with the ATF, which claims that the Bound Book is 'their property.'
An initial report was published here yesterday concerning this new illegal activity on the part of the ATF.
According to a memo from the Anchorage Second Amendment Task Force, the Great Northern Guns store in Anchorage was asked to give their Bound Book to the ATF so it could be copied in its totality. The store refused, citing their legal rights and the fact that to do so would be a violation of the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986.
