This bill would give the Attorney General and the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) the authority to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of a federal firearms and explosives license to any person if the Attorney General:
Determines that the individual has been engaged in or has provided material support or resources for terrorist activities;
Has a reasonable belief that such individual may use a firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism.
The sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities would be prohibited. Any individual whose firearm or explosive license application has been denied to bring legal action challenging the denial.
The Attorney General would be permitted to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation suits if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would compromise national security. Additionally, the Attorney General could revoke the firearms and explosives licenses and permits of those deemed to be engaged in terrorism.
