Breaking: GOP Warns Biden’s ATF Plans To Go Full Gun-Grabber On Lawful Owners



Well, this was a matter of time. The left is distraught that the fight to turn the Kyle Rittenhouse case into a racially charged vigilant terrorist went south. Biden himself came out with a statement claiming to be ‘angry’ that Rittenhouse was protected under self-defense laws. During the case, liberal media painted a picture that the teen smuggled an AR-15 across state lines. We all know now it was a complete lie. Rittenhouse was just 15 minutes from his home and did not arrive at the scene with a gun.

That’s not going to stop the left from targeting lawful gun owners apparently. The GOP issued a warning that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, and Firearms (ATF) is trying to get their hands on purchases lists to track down gun owners.

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.”

If allowed access, the ATF could use the purchase list to target lawful gun owners in some mass gun-grab under Biden’s watch. I can’t imagine this will end well.
