FROM The Trace: https://www.thetrace.org/2017/07/atf-gun-regulations-repealed-replaced-trump/ The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is polling outside interest groups about what gun regulations to eliminate following an edict from the Trump administration to cut government red tape. In three closed-door meetings held in May and June, top ATF officials separately asked firearms-industry leaders, law enforcement officials, and representatives from gun-violence prevention groups what current regulations could be eliminated without risking public safety, according to attendees who went to one or more of the meetings. An agenda for a May 22 meeting with gun-industry leaders, obtained by The Trace, asked attendees to consider three questions: what impact current regulations have on gun-violence prevention; what regulations need to be “repealed, replaced, or modified,” and what regulations are outdated. One person present at the meeting with gun-violence prevention groups, which also took place May 22, said officials asked whether there were any regulations that people present “would oppose eliminating.” This person said he feels there are many regulations that the ATF enforces that are essential to public safety, and that he wasn’t prepared to list all of them on the spot. Representatives from Americans for Responsible Solutions, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Everytown for Gun Safety attended the session.
