Watch Your Back Gun-Owners, ATF Reportedly Checking Their Lists
According to members of the GOP Biden's Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, and Firearms (ATF) is trying to get their hands on purchases lists to track down gun owners. Their aim? To crackdown on owners of AR-15's.
"Republican Rep. Michael Cloud of Texas led 51 of his colleagues in a letter to acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson on Monday, expressing their concern over a proposed rule by the agency that Republicans fear could eventually lead to a backdoor gun registry around Congress’ prohibition.
The recently-proposed rule essentially removes the 20-year burn date that the federal firearms licensees must abide by, requiring them to preserve firearm purchase records older than two decades.
While the preservation of records may not seem like a big deal, the federal licensees are required to submit their records to the ATF upon closing up shop – meaning every American gun owner’s record would eventually end up in the ATF’s hands.
"The Biden administration is yet again ignoring the real threats against America and instead using political leverage to encroach on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens," Cloud told Fox News in a statement.
"This proposed rule would be a giant leap toward a federal firearm registry, which is explicitly banned by law," the Texas Republican continued. "Requiring federal firearm licensees to preserve records older than 20 years will enable the Biden administration to collect more information on law-abiding gun owners, all with the purpose of eventually having a registry of every gun owner in the United States."
The left is outraged at the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict of 'not guilty'. Rittenhouse was released after jurors declared the teen acted in self-defense during the riots in Kenosha Wisconsin last year. The left is especially angry because they worked so hard to spin several false narratives against the teen. Because the weapon used was an AR-15 it looks like Democrats are going to try to use that same narrative to target lawful gunowners.
