Breakfast with the ATF

Colene Domenech, ATF Portland Office

Colene Domenech, ATF Portland Office

We had a great speaker today.  Colene has over 20 years experience as an ATF agent.  We learned a lot about the operation of the agency.  Many people think they get all the paperwork on all guns sold in Oregon but the info stays with the dealer.  Perhaps our laws need some fine tuning to make it  possible for the agency to have those records (like they do in Hawaii).  When a gun is used in a crime it makes it a lot easier to track down ownership.  She gave the example of the shooting death of Sgt. Godding in Seaside.  Because the gun was originally sold in Hawaii, they were able to track it to the killer.

Because of their unique investigation, they were able to settle the case of the Woodburn Bombing several years ago.

Some things to remember…

  • Monday is Troop 870 Court of Honor at Mountain View Middle School, 7:00 PM.  Let’s show support for  our scouts and their leaders.
  • Car Seat Clinic, Saturday, October 22nd, 9 – 11:30 AM at Providence St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
  • Tip-A-Cop, Beaverton Red Robin on Canyon. We would like to attend as a group.  Hope to see you there at 5:00 PM.

If you missed the Thursday breakfast, you can view it on Youtube.

Have a good weekend.
