Clarifying the haze surrounding the ATF

The ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) is a law enforcement agency within the United States Department of Justice. Primary responsibilities include enforcing federal laws and regulations related to alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives, as well as investigating and preventing illegal trafficking. Any law violation results in penalties ranging from verbal or written warnings to the revocation of a store owner’s license to sell firearms.

ATF will seek to revoke the licenses of dealers the first time that they violate federal law by willfully 1) transferring a firearm to a prohibited person, 2) failing to run a required background check, 3) falsifying records, such as a firearms transaction form, 4) failing to respond to an ATF tracing request, or 5) refusing to permit ATF to conduct an inspection in violation of the law.
