Wouldn't life be grand without this politically biased turd of an organization...

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., planned to introduce a bill Thursday morning that would abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Daily Caller reported.

Greene’s bill was named after Brian A. Terry, a former Marine and Border Patrol agent killed during a botched operation to track guns smuggled across the southern border.

The congresswoman confirmed the news on Twitter after the Daily Caller broke the story.

"I’m introducing this legislation to #EliminateTheATF to protect ALL gun owners across this country from a tyrannical, power hungry group of bureaucrats who’s goal is to destroy our Second Amendment rights," Greene tweeted.
Greene’s staff told the Daily Caller the bill would include:

  • Alcohol, Tobacco, and other regulatory functions being transferred back to the FBI.
  • Requires the FBI publish an itemized list on its website of all confiscated firearms and ammunition, which must be sold to Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealers via public auction before the Bureau closes.
  • Proceeds from the auction are to be placed into a fund for the families of border patrol officers killed in the line of duty as a result of Operation Fast and Furious, providing grants up to $150,000 per family.
  • Any remaining funds not used by 2032 will be re-directed to a program awarding states grant funds to establish firearm safety programs.

"Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene will introduce legislation Thursday morning that would abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) if signed into law."

No wonder Chipman's eyes are bulging.

Not really an abolishment from what I was reading… more like get rid of recent stupid stuff
It says that the bureau would be abolished six months after enactment of the bill and its responsibilities returned to the FBI. So it would abolish the ATF but the FBI would probably start attacking the 2nd amendment then. Always been .gov’s most hated enumerated right after the 1st.

One can dream, but getting rid of the BATFE would be a great thing for this country! Illegally taxing all the good stuff, simply because it's good ain't a reason, nor was founding an agency to "Oversee" all this! Hand it all over to the F.B.I. and remove the guns, the booze and the tobacco from regulation, Period!
While were at is, make the NFA and GCA go away, both outright infringements and illegal!

Mid-term elections.
Even so... okay...

Fast and Furious scandal under Obama and Holder; not big enough of an issue for Reps to put a bill to abolish ATF, even though it was the ATF who let American guns go across the Border and ended in the deaths of American agents...

Vegas event and the whole bumpstock thing under Trump.. still not a big enough of an issue for Reps to propose abolishing the ATF...

And now the whole pistol brace thing, Chipman, his involvement with the Waco thing.. that is apparently a big enough issue to finally propose abolishing the ATF?? :rolleyes:
