HR 1093 BATFE Reform Act of 2011

Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Jason Altmire (D-Pa.) have introduced H.R. 1093, the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform Act of 2011.” The bill would roll back unnecessary restrictions, correct errors, and codify longstanding congressional policies in the firearms arena. These bipartisan bills are a vital step to modernize and improve BATFE operations.

Of highest importance, H.R. 1093 totally rewrites the system of administrative penalties for licensed dealers, manufacturers and importers of firearms. Today, for most violations, BATFE can only give a federal firearms license (FFL) holder a warning, or totally revoke his license.

H.R. 1093 would allow fines or license suspensions for less serious violations, while still allowing license revocation for the kind of serious violations that would block an investigation or put guns in the hands of criminals. This prevents the all-too-common situations where BATFE has revoked licenses for insignificant technical violations—such as improper use of abbreviations, or filing records in the wrong order.

Please contact your Representatives and ask them to support this bill.

Since we know from everyday experience that what they tell us is their intent and what they actually try to do are polar opposites, I would like to if the NRA lawyers have gone over this bill with a fine tooth comb.

I agree with winghunter to have an outside legal opinion, from a 2-A based organization. I also feel that no legislation should take place until, and after, litgation to resolve the “Gun Runner – Gun Walker” apparently illegal acts by the BATFE, as well as the other illegal acts alleged by the 16 BATFE agents in a letter to California Congressman Darrell Issa.

I agree. Bet there’s some hidden language that benefits the ATF and takes away some rights of the citizen.

No, simply no. The ATF doesn’t need revision, or an update; what it needs is to be scrapped completely. I’ll support that bill, and probably no other involving the ATF.
