The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) is aggressively pushing a “zero tolerance policy” for revoking the licenses of firearm sellers, leaked documents reveal.
Gun Owners of America (GOA) first obtained the documents Thursday, which show ATF updated its federal firearms licensee (FFL) inspection guidance in January 2022 after the Biden regime announced the new policy a year earlier.
The new updates claim that revoking FFLs has become “the assumed action” of violations of its guidelines.
“Therefore, revocation is the assumed action, unless extraordinary circumstances exist, when violations are cited that include” transferring a firearm “to a prohibited person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe the transferee is a prohibited person,” failing to perform a background check, and “making a false or fictitious written statement in the FFL’s required records or in applying for a firearms license,” the guidance reads.
The updated guidelines say the “ATF must establish willfulness” to proceed with revoking licenses, but notes it “does not have to establish a history of prior violations to determine willfulness.”
