The Biden administration is using the ATF to shut down gun stores and establish an illegal gun registry.
The administration established an insane zero-tolerance policy. In addition, when a gun store goes out of business, it must turn over all its records, which are then put into a downloadable and searchable registry. It is against the law.
In 2021, the Biden Administration announced a new “Zero Tolerance” policy for revoking the licenses of firearm sellers, known as Federal Firearms Licensees or “FFLs.” As part of this new policy, the ATF recently updated its “Federal Firearms Administrative Action Policy and Procedures.”
Gun Owners of America obtained copies of this updated ATF order, revised under the Biden Administration in January of 2022, along with the prior version under the Trump Administration.
Gun Owners of America found that the administration wants to weaponize the ATF against the entire Second Amendment industry.
Minor violations that used to warrant a warning and now used to shut down stores, even if it’s a simple mistake. Instead of regulating agencies, they are closing as many as possible. It’s become the norm to shut down the store.
They are also reopening closed cases to use against store owners. The ATF deems every violation as willful so they can shut the store down.
Lock and load.
The just keep picking away one of these days they are going to go too far
Long ago the ATF was barred from registering guns belonging to the citizens of the United States. Now we have a runaway administration and that adminstration has fueled a runaway BATFE. NICS checks were not to be kept. But I knew that was a ruse as the data would be backed up for archiving purposes. But that makes the issue one of a bureaucracy run amok and not giving a damn about rules.
Doesn’t matter. If they close them all, we will still get guns. We will either build them or smuggled them in.
We can just go to Afghanistan and buy the latest and greatest right off the street.
No matter how overtly corrupt the ATF becomes, nobody in DC will stop them and none will be punished (see the DOJ/FBI). Or the GOP will have a an inane hearing resulting in no action, and declare victory.
