Welcome back to 2A News Now, where we discuss the latest news in the firearms industry. In today's video, we will be addressing the concerning issue of the ATF targeting retail gun sellers and revoking their Federal Firearms Licenses (FFLs) one at a time.
Under the current administration, led by Joe Biden, the ATF has ramped up its efforts to regulate the firearms industry. Previously, ATF inspectors used a five percent rule, where minor paperwork errors would result in minor corrective action such as a warning letter or conference. However, the Biden administration has weaponized the agency, viewing even minor clerical errors as willful violations of ATF rules, putting the dealer's FFL in jeopardy.
The ATF is clearly on the prowl, aiming to revoke as many FFLs as possible. The more FFL revocations they can achieve, the happier the White House will be. President Biden has publicly expressed his concerns about rogue gun dealers, and now it is the ATF's responsibility to deliver revoked licenses by any means necessary.
High volume gun dealers have the resources to fight a revocation, with compliance officers, attorneys, and money at their disposal. However, the ATF is targeting home-based dealers who are easier to take down and typically lack the funds to defend their FFLs from revocation. The ATF is fully aware of this and is abusing the situation.
Recently, the ATF has even started employing new tactics that violate their own policies. Before Biden took office, the ATF did not use gun shop inspections to further criminal investigations. However, that has changed, as ATF inspectors are now teaming up with criminal investigators and creating an unholy alliance. This new alliance provides another mechanism to ensure that unlucky dealers targeted for revocation have no escape.
It is important to note that the ATF's recent revocation spree has resulted in a pattern and practice of civil rights violations. While ATF agents may believe they are immune from internal sanctions because they are following orders, they can still be criminally prosecuted or found liable for violating someone's civil rights. The ATF's actions are morally wrong and should be shut down immediately.
Unfortunately, the ATF's focus on revoking FFLs is distracting them from their core mission of keeping guns out of the hands of lawbreakers. By targeting law-abiding Americans and shaking down honest, hard-working gun dealers, the ATF is doing nothing to deter or prevent crime. It is merely an attempt to curry favor with the ATF brass and the resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
In conclusion, Joe Biden's ATF will stop at nothing to revoke FFLs, and this pattern from the rogue ATF needs to be addressed and stopped immediately.
