GOP Warns ATF Is Going After Lawful Gun Owners

We all knew this kind of thing was coming, Biden claimed he wants to ban all AR-14s, so we can see his knowledge on weapons is above average… So in order to get everyone’s guns, or at least start the process, the ATF under Biden is looking to acquire purchase records from gun shops across the country.

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.”

This is just the first step. Once Biden and Dems have records like these you know they will eventually be looking to disarm us. They hate it when Americans have the means to defend themselves. Just look at the recent Rittenhouse case, he defended himself from a Pedophile, and somehow he is the villain.
