Welcome to the Live2Shoot podcast. My name is Jeff Duddle and I've been a licensed firearm dealer for the last 17 years. In this podcast, we talk about all things related to Second Amendment anything else going in the news or something in my personal life, or we've been actually throwing in some history about firearms as well. So welcome, welcome, welcome. Today we want to talk about more tyranny and trying to take away our freedom and infringe upon our Second Amendment rights. And that comes from, yes, the ATF, the one that is definitely trying to overreach their powers constantly. And, and in previous podcasts, we've talked about some Second Amendment or some Supreme Court cases that are challenging the, the Chevron doctrine. And that that's legal theory that if a law is passed in the. Congress isn't specifically clear about how to enforce it. It gives the enforcing agency the power to do that interpretation, and in some cases, Rewrite the law. And that has been a theory that's been out there. And there's a couple of Supreme court cases that are challenging that. And if they win and we can throw out Chevron deference, it can, we'll seriously cut the legs out from the ATF because that is what the ATF is about. And in their latest attempt, they are trying to again, prevent the private sale of firearms the whistleblower group, group and Howard. dot us, empower us, and they're representing the IRS agents that are whistleblowers in the Hunter Biden case. They have sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, and what they have said that they've got two sources that have told them that the ATF, directed by the White House, It is drafting a change and has drafted a 1, 300 page document in support of the rule that would effectively ban private sales of farms from one citizen to another by requiring background checks for every sale. So, Now, you know, if you, if you buy a gun and it's out of state and it has to be shipped, it comes through FFL and they have to you have to go in and do the 4473. And if you don't have a license to carry or whatever, you know, particular state requirements are, and you have to sometimes have a background check done. But if you do that, what's called a face to face sale, where you are residents of the same state, you can essentially and, you know, certain states, certain municipalities may be a little different, but broadly, you can, transfer that gun over legally. You can gift it to family members, whatever, without any type of background check. Now, last year in the, the Safer's Community Act, or creating Safer's Community Act, I'm not sure with camera what it was, you know, they created a few other new rules. And in that, the ATF essentially Or they essentially tried to change the definition and what's required an FFL dealer where now, you know, they're really making it very vague that anybody that sells a gun for profit may be considered an FFL dealer and have to have an FFL. So that's one attempt they've made. Now they're blatantly coming out and really depending on what this rule, this rule that they're drafting says, you know, it's going to say that no matter what you buy, you have to go to an FFL and Run a background check before you can purchase it, so you know again very expansive it's gonna And it treats all private citizens as FFL dealers And it's gonna completely circumvent the powers in the Constitution with grants legislation powers to Congress because they're the ones that have to write the laws and this is a law that has to be written. The ATF just can't go and willy nilly create a rule that says this is the way we're going to start doing things now. It is again very much an overreach of power. We're going to have to keep our eye on it because what they're going to do, they're going to try and slide it under and you know here they are going to overwhelm us with a 1300 page document and we're going to just basically put it out there for comments and if we Don't all be diligent and comment, contact our congressman. You know, they could very well get this slipped through, but you know, fortunately we do have these groups like Empower Oversight and keep an eye on it and just, you know, Keep your ears open. I will be following this story and I will let you know more as it unfolds. What we need to do just a short update for you today. Appreciate you listening. And again, keep your eye on this because the ATF is sneaky and they are going to come for our guns. That's all they're about is coming for our guns, especially under this administration. So keep fighting, appreciate listening and take care.
