The ATF expands the definition of Gun Dealer moving closer to Universal Background Checks

Aug 31, 2023

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, under the direction of the Biden Administration, released a new rule redefining who constitutes a gun dealer, thereby vastly expanding the Background Check System to include almost all gun sales in America.

The National Association for Gun Rights has been fighting Universalization of Gun Background checks since the Toomey-Manchin congressional fight in 2013.

“The ATF and Biden are playing definition games with U.S. Code as a means to ban the private transfer of firearms,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “The language of this proposed rule gives the government near universal authority to prosecute anyone who transfers a firearm.”

“Universal Gun Registration is the not so hidden agenda of the anti-gun crowd in D.C., and they don’t care how they get it,” said Brown. “Registration always leads to confiscation.”

The National Association for Gun Rights is gathering petitions from its members and supporters to deliver to the ATF objecting to its 108-page rule during their 90-day comment period.

“I’m not sure why the ATF has a 90-day comment period when the bureaucrats aren’t answerable to anyone and can make up the rules as they go along,” said Brown “We are mobilizing our members to fight yet another power grab by the ATF and we are exploring our legal options as well.”

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
