Abolish the ATF
Petition started by ProGunNews.com -- America's newest source for pro-Second Amendment news.
Since its inception, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has led the charge in the gun grabber's war on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
The unconstitutional agency has a long and disgraceful history of using their power to entrap, disarm, abuse, and unjustly kill peaceful Americans in their anti-gun pursuits. At the same time, they have been implicated in schemes which have placed guns in the hands of violent criminals, like in the infamous "Fast and Furious" gun-running scheme which funneled guns to violent drug cartels in Mexico. Some of those firearms were later used to murder Border Patrol agents.
This petition is designed to urge your elected officials to back efforts to abolish this despicable agency, which currently operates with a $1.4 BILLION yearly budget, funded with our taxpayer dollars.
One such effort, the 'Brian A. Terry Memorial Eliminate the ATF Act' (H.R. 3960), was filed by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in June of 2021.
The bill, named after a Border Patrol agent who was killed by a drug smuggler in 2010 at the hand of a gun supplied by the ATF, would force the anti-gun agency to close their doors six months after passage.
