The government and their allies in the mainstream media want you to believe that the existence of a federal gun registry is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. But in a bombshell development, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have admitted that they manage a database of 920,664,765 firearm purchase records.
This news was uncovered by the Washington Free Beacon, and shows that the database includes both digital and hard copies of these transactions, in violation of longstanding federal statutes.
For decades, the ATF has been insistent that they do not maintain searchable records of firearm transactions, as the following video shows:
Their new admission shows that they have consistently lied about this.
According to the Free Beacon, the Biden Administration expanded this database by over 50 million records in 2021 alone.
Rep. Michael Cloud (R., Texas) is speaking out following this news, stating that Biden could use such a database to infringe on the rights of citizens.
“A federal firearm registry is explicitly banned by law. Yet, the Biden administration is again circumventing Congress and enabling the notably corrupt ATF to manage a database of nearly a billion gun transfer records,” Cloud told the Free Beacon. “Under the president's watch, the ATF has increased surveillance on American gun owners at an abhorrent level. The Biden administration continues to empower criminals and foreign nationals while threatening the rights of law-abiding Americans. It's shameful and this administration should reconsider its continued attacks on American gun owners.”
Clearly the ATF believes they are above the law.
Do you think the ATF should be abolished?
