Marjorie Taylor Greene’s New Bill Would ‘Eliminate’ ATF

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced legislation this month that would “eliminate” the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Along with disbanding ATF, the bill would also “remove firearm restrictions on lawful gun owners, and provide funds to surviving families of border patrol agents killed as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.”

Rep. Greene was clear about her intentions on social media.

“I’m introducing this legislation to #EliminateTheATF to protect ALL gun owners across this country from a tyrannical, power hungry group of bureaucrats who’s [sic] goal is to destroy our Second Amendment rights,” she said on Twitter.

Gun owners are well aware of the ATF’s latest moves to restrict 2A rights via bureaucratic deference. Pistol braces and DIY firearms parts and kits are currently on the chopping block and may end up getting bump stock or NFA treatment in the coming months.

The pro-2A community is now making its voice heard to stop these infringements by publicly commenting on the proposed rule changes in the hopes that it convinces the agency to back down.

Tens of thousands have submitted responses thus far but the ATF is not obligated to follow the word of concerned citizens, even if they represent an overwhelming majority, as is the case with the agency’s guidance on stabilizing braces and homemade firearms.

What would stop the ATF dead in its tracks is, of course, if it ceased to exist. This is where Greene’s bill comes into play. Which raises the question: Could she succeed in shutting down a federal agency that’s been around for more than a century?

Highly unlikely.

The bill only has three sponsors — U.S. Reps. Ralph Norman (R-SC), Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) — and faces an uphill climb in the Democratically-controlled House and Senate. Not to mention the fact that the Harris-Biden administration is the most anti-gun ticket in modern history.

In that regard, it’s safe to assume, President Biden would never sign a bill to dismantle the very agency that gives him the best chance to foist gun control on the American people. No chance!

That said, you can’t blame a girl for trying. Plus, symbolically, it may help to put the agency on notice.

    I just gained a nephew and I look at him and beg God to guide us in leaving a free America for him and countless others to thrive and preserve for his children. Congresslady Greene is likely thinking the same thing every morning she awakes. As for you haters in these comments.my your hate poison you and the weapon you raise in evil turn upon you and destroy you.

  • Ej harbet June 28, 2021, 8:51 am

    I like her! A lion of liberty and lovely to boot. Her husband and the state of Georgia are freedom loving Americans are lucky to have her.

  • survivor50 June 28, 2021, 8:07 am

    Can we vote for her all the way from TEXAS ??? Is that OK with DOMINION ??? Can we bring extra ballots too ?

    Just asking for a friend…

  • Tim Taury June 26, 2021, 2:56 pm

    Hope the bill passes.

  • Shooter41 June 25, 2021, 2:39 pm

    She’s a proven moron and pointless moves like this just continue to make that case. The co-sponsors are also jokes that have zero ability to do anything in congress but vote on the stuff that other congress members are doing. I would love to see the ATF disappear but that’s less likely than me winning powerball. So why is she doing this? Because the less-than-intelligent people that support her eat this s**t up and she knows it. It ultimately hurts us gun owners because we look like clueless fools. Wise up people…

    • Jim Hottois June 25, 2021, 9:57 pm

      Well shooter41, The reason our gun rights are in so much trouble is because of so many setting on there rear end and doing nothing.. So just keep setting there doing nothing till they come for you… Because you wont be law abiding for long if you have anything..

  • Norm Fishler June 25, 2021, 12:51 pm

    Is it any wonder that the Liberal, Progressive Left hate her so much?

  • Jim Parker June 25, 2021, 11:31 am

    Outfits like the CDC and the ATF are way past the expiration date. Back when whisky was a key revenue source for the federal government the ATF (may) have been useful, but it long ago became a means for illegally messing with gun owners and folks who distribute and sell guns.

  • Ben June 25, 2021, 11:25 am

    Maybe she can help it through her committees.

    • Shooter41 June 29, 2021, 2:36 pm

      I see what you did there…(she’s been kicked out of her committees for being an attention-seeking idiot)

  • Kane June 25, 2021, 10:20 am

    Since Gaetz is mentioned in this article I just wanted to raise a couple questions, where are his supposed victims? The accusations go back years and if he has any first hand accusers they should give testomony as adults without delay. Also, there was such a big fuss when Goldberg was cutting a deal and now nothing. The treatment of Gaetz seems very suspicious to say the least.

  • Ken June 25, 2021, 9:48 am

    Isn’t this bill an attempt to defund a police force?

    And if it does make it into law… can she next try to defund the DEA and maybe my local dog catcher… you see the dog catcher keeps interfering with my dog’s right to pee on the neighbor’s bushes.

    She has become a joke…. a dumb blond joke.

    • Kane June 25, 2021, 10:07 am

      And you get so upset whenever there is a Democrat calling for deunding the Police? Greene gave a steller presetation on all the riots and the disparity on the Capitol.

  • Stephen Graham June 25, 2021, 9:32 am

    BATFE. What are redundant and antiquated agency. Further, It is bloated compared to any police force. What a great idea. Perhaps when conservatives have control of all three branches, we can get some sanity in government.

    • Rusty June 28, 2021, 10:04 am

      PERHAPS when conservatives have control, we can get something done!!

      Conservatives HAD control 2016-2018. Maybe I am deaf, but I have not heard that suppressors made it off NFA, I am still waiting on National Reprocrocity for concealed weapons.

      Oh, wait, the ONLY significant firearm related development to come from THAT era, was the executive BANNING of a firearm accessory; ironically OKd in the previous “anti gun” administration.

      Of course I am talking of the TRUMPSTOCK BAN, which sets the precedent for other sweeping executive orders/actions to further restrict the second A .

      THE Slippery Slope, started by OUR guy…….

  • Big Al 45 June 25, 2021, 9:13 am

    All that needs to be done is to remove the Unconstitutional Enforcement authority of the ATF.
    It was NEVER intended as a ‘Policing’ body, but a regulatory body.
    Enforcement was supposed to be by the FBI, and the ATF was never supposed to have agents with guns arresting people, and making raids.
    ATF’s job was to oversee manufacturing and distribution paperwork and to track guns for the FBI.
    But is was made into a SWAT team, and therein lies the problem, as ATF agents were never held to the same standard as FBI.

  • D.J. June 25, 2021, 8:58 am

    ” A” for effort , however , I doubt it will go anywhere .
    There is little chance that tyrants will voluntarily give up any
    power that they believe they have .

    ” If we did not wish to be sheared , we would not be sheep .”

  • Carol Powell June 25, 2021, 8:41 am

    Does the government not understand that the lawful gun owners will rise up like never before to defend their Second Amendment right to bear arms

  • Jack June 25, 2021, 7:54 am

    if every politician worked liked Marjorie green we would have no issues,that woman is god sent,for all you fear mongering, government loving ,biden voting communists,this is what our world has come to.im disgusted,and can’t wait for when the real division comes and we stand up and actually do something about this.

  • Dr Motown June 25, 2021, 7:42 am

    Should’ve been done years ago when Republicans controlled the Legislature…..but we had cowards like Paul Ryan and John Boehner in charge

  • Nick June 25, 2021, 7:37 am

    I am going to ask my congressman to put in a bill to kick MTG out of Congress. She is a pathetic fool except that she is doing or attempting to do what her constituents want, which is “go after the libs.” She is nuts. There’s a governing philosophy though…do nothing except chase after liberals.

    • MagnumOpUS June 25, 2021, 8:58 am

      Tardlet.
      Awwwww…

    • Kane June 25, 2021, 10:13 am

      What did AOC do for the small businesses like the bar owners that used to be her employers in places like NY or Boston?

      Greene is more in touch with the struggling middle class than any other politician I can think of but go ahead and put a name out there with which I can compare your politician to mine.

  • Wilko June 25, 2021, 7:36 am

    It won’t go anywhere, but bless her for trying.

  • shrugger June 25, 2021, 6:54 am

    If she reintroduces it in January 2023 it might actually go somewhere.

  • Slim June 25, 2021, 6:28 am

    Marjorie Taylor Greene is the type of Congress Person we all need.

    • Jd June 25, 2021, 7:34 am

      Yes, we all need more representation like her that is actually doing something to protect our rights and get rid of the ones that simply give us “lip service” promises that mean nothing. Thank You! Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene,

  • SuperG June 22, 2021, 10:22 am

    No chance a federal agency will ever be dismantled, especially one that does the bidding of the Democrats.

    • deanbob June 25, 2021, 6:40 am

      You’re probably right; but, there are just too many “agencies” that congress has delegated authority to. This essentially makes them unaccountable DIRECTLY to the voters, something the founders saw as serious problems in other world governments and one they eliminated in our “representative” form of government.

  • DeltaLimaEcho June 21, 2021, 9:39 pm

    Heart’s in the right place, we need more like her.
