Reverse the Tiahrt Amendment to RE-empower the Bureau of ATF

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Reverse the Tiahrt Amendment and allow the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to do its job.
There are currently 249 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is the organization empowered to monitor gun sales and to enforce our current gun laws. However, its hands are tied due to a 10-year-old amendment titled the "Tiahrt Amendment," which essentially restricts the ATF from doing any monitoring, oversight, or enforcement of gun laws. This reversal will help the country prevent illegal sales, monitor background checks effectively and enforce the current laws.
