Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene will introduce legislation Thursday morning that would abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) if signed into law.
The Daily Caller first obtained the legislation, titled the “Brian A. Terry Memorial Eliminate the ATF Act.”
The bill was named after Marine and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was killed in a gunfight after a group of armed men attempted to rob smugglers who were transporting drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
Terry was part of a high-ranking Border Patrol unit and was participating in operation “Fast and Furious,” which allowed federal agents to let known criminals buy weapons in order to track the purchases to other criminal organizations.
The legislation’s cosponsors include South Carolina Republican Ralph Norman, Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar and Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz. Read more…
