Report: ATF Looks At Repealing Some Gun Regulations

posted on July 13, 2017

According to a report at Bearingarms.com, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is working to determine what firearm-related regulations need to be “repealed or replaced.” ATF’s efforts come on the heels of an executive order from President Donald Trump that requested that the department “alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people.”

Law enforcement officials, along with leaders from both pro-gun and anti-gun groups, were present in a handful of meetings to discuss the topic with ATF. Following one gathering, National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Larry Keane wrote that, “It is a unique opportunity to work with an administration that wants to advance the contributions of the firearms and ammunition industries to our national, state and local economies.”

For its part, Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun mouthpiece thetrace.com noted that gun control groups “expressed concern” over an internal agency white paper from Ronald Turk, ATF’s associate deputy director and chief operating officer. They bemoaned that a report labeled “Options to Reduce or Modify Firearms Regulations” should spell out the Second Amendment, and questioned whether the “firearms industry has too much influence.” In other words, business as usual for Bloomberg’s faux news site.
