Under the Biden-Harris administration, there has been a considerable rise in gun stores having their licenses revoked by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The Tracereported that 92 Federal Firearm Licenses (FFLs) had been pulled so far this year — this is the highest number since 2008.

And comes nearly a year and a half after President Bidendeclaredwar on ‘rogue gun dealers.’

“The numbers provide the first indication that federal investigators have cracked down on lawbreaking gun dealers following guidance from the Biden administration ordering the agency to take a stricter tack during inspections,” Trace said.

The revoked 92 FFLs account for 1.3% of all the gun shops inspected. The revocation rate under Biden has skyrocketed to the highest in 16 years.

Authored by Tom Ozimek via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Two dozen Republican attorneys general have sent a letter to Visa, Mastercard, and American Express demanding the credit card companies abandon plans to track gun sales in the United States through firearm-specific transaction codes.

Credit card companies face pressure from gun control groups and lawmakers sympathetic to their cause to adopt new merchant category codes (MCC) for firearms, which now fall into the “general merchandise” category.

This, in turn, was prompted by a decision on the part of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a Switzerland-based group that sets and monitors quality standards for various industries,to establish firearm-specific codes.

Crump explained: “The volume necessary means that most online retailers and manufacturers are now cut off from shipping guns through the carrier unless the handgun is shipped using the expensive Next Day Air service.”

UPS told customers it “updated its policy to adhere to nationwide regulations…

Lever Action .410 Shorty?

 

Henry’s New Lever Action Axe .410 caught my eye the other day.

This would make one awesome snake-truck gun.

Would not recommend it for Home Defense though, despite the marketing.

But at around a grand ($1,000) I think I will pass on this snazzy get-up and settle for my old single shot Stevens .410 for now.

May not be as flashy, but she get’s the job done. 😎
