Joe Biden’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is working on a number of fronts to undermine, even devalue, the 2nd Amendment’s protections for the right of Americans to keep and bear arms.
And one of the campaigns involves creating new demands for background checks for private gun sales.
Those checks are already required of anyone who handles a firearms transaction while holding a federal firearms license, but to date, they have not been required by law of those selling a gun to a neighbor, a relative, or such.
However, a whistleblower organization is warning that the Biden bureaucrats are pushing for an “unconstitutional” power grab that would now regulate private firearms transactions.
It is Empower Oversight, which recently represented the IRS agents in the Hunter Biden case, that warns in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland that two BATF sources confirmed the White House directed the bureaucrats to “make the change and ‘has drafted a 1,300-page document in support of a rule that would effectively ban private sales of firearms from one citizen to another by requiring background checks for every sale.'”
