Among the other God-knows-what in this,
The Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives (ATF) is looking to revive a rule proposed way back in 1998
that would block domestic abusers from owning guns.
the regulation makes it illegal for some who has been convicted of
a misdemeanor domestic violence offense to own a gun.
It's ALREADY illegal for someone with such a conviction to own arms; so just how are they planning to 'revive' it? By expanding the definition of 'abuse', probably, so as to screw as many people as possible.
The ATF is also looking to prohibit the mentally ill from owning
firearms, which is attracting even more criticism from gun rights
Think of the shit they've been doing to vets with the VAs help, expanded to EVERYBODY.
And you can bet the new AG is right in the middle of this. Which means every Senator who assured us all was fine when they voted for Lynch needs to have their ass kicked for giving her the approval of the Senate.
