• TRUTH BOMB: The ATF Does Want To Put Gun Owners On A List…WHY?

    The Deputy Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Thomas Brandon came right with it…for once. He admitted it would be nice to have all gun owners on a nice neat list.

    From Bearing Arms:

    The head honcho of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) joined Richard Schlesinger to discuss the state of the agency and made it clear he’s gunning for more resources.

    “Public safety is the reason we exist; it’s not to take people’s guns,” the deputy director said. “It’s to regulate firearms that can be misused. You know, we’re a small agency with a big job.”

    In his first television interview, which aired this weekend on the CBS program Sunday Morning, Deputy Director Thomas Brandon made a pitch for the need to provide the agency with a searchable database of gun manufacturing and gun sales.

    Brandon claimed the agency is hampered by ‘not having the necessary technology’, saying the constraints on ATF, such as congress prohibiting the agency from creating a computerized database of gun purchases, doesn’t make sense.

    “But there’s a lot of things that don’t make sense in this town, you know?” Brandon chuckled. “And so yeah, would it be efficient and effective [with new technology]? Absolutely. Would the taxpayers benefit with public safety? Absolutely. Are we allowed to do it? No.”

    It was nice to see the Republican from Wisconsin James Sensenbrenner verbally shoot back what many gun owners think of that idea. No, and HELL No!

    “We ought to get rid of the ATF,” said Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), who introduced a bill to abolish the ATF – the latest version of an idea that goes back to the Reagan years.

    “I think they fail time and time and time again,” Sensenbrenner said, adding that having a searchable database of gun sales amounts to “de facto gun registration.”

    No matter what liberals say, they do want to list sales data, ownership data, and location data…with one end goal…confiscation. They fundamentally see the world as a better place if it is gun free.

    That is a place where unicorns live and it rains lollipops.
