ATF Attempting To Stop Private Gun Sales

From Bearing Arms:

The Justice Department submitted a new blueprint today to define more clearly who must secure a federal firearms license for legal secondary market transactions. This new framework would redefine who is required to obtain a federal firearms license to sell guns legally. This license mandates that a dealer run background checks on buyers, among other things.

The proposal represents the latest effort by the Biden Administration to strengthen gun control via administrative rules. With the exception of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, Biden has not had Congressional support for his gun control agenda. So the President has sought to enact changes through federal rulemaking by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).

ATF Wants To Ban Private Sales

From Ammoland:

The Biden administration will use executive orders and the weaponized ATF to issue a rule limiting the private sales of firearms. According to the New York Times and verified by AmmoLand News sources, the new rule is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year.

President Joe Biden plans to announce that he is directing the ATF to close what Everytown calls the “private sales loophole” and the “digital loophole.” The “private sales loophole” is when an individual sells a firearm for profit but does not possess a Federal Firearm License (FFL).

Maryland Attacks Private Transfers


The expanded background check law prohibits a person from transferring a rifle or shotgun to another individual unless a NICS background check had first taken place. Those found guilty of doing so face as much as six months in prison and a $10,000 fine. Few exceptions to the law, such as for police or military service, or for inoperable guns given to a museum, are allowed.
