Gun dealers are crying foul as the Biden administration pursues an apparent crackdown on legal firearms sellers, whose licenses have been revoked at an unprecedented rate over the last two years.
“This policy is designed to be a backdoor violation of the Second Amendment,” Anthony Navarro, a Greeley, Colorado, dealer who lost his license last year, told the Wall Street Journal.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has taken away the licenses of 122 gun dealers since October — up from just 27 revocations in all of fiscal year 2021, a 350% increase in the first nine months of this fiscal year alone.
Dealers complain that many of the violations leading to the loss of their businesses amount to little more than paperwork errors.
Navarro, for example, said he informed the ATF immediately when he found that a lax employee had been mishandling buyers’ purchase documents — and lost his license as a result. (Read more from “Biden Admin Crackdown on Legal Gun Dealers Leads to 350% Rise in License Loss” HERE)
