The Obama administration overreached and violated gun buyers’ rights by requiring additional reports by the ATF on purchasers who buy two or more rifles with certain characteristics in southwestern border states. Congress is right to end that regulation.
The regulation that this bill would repeal was part of the Obama administration’s effort to keep assault rifles out of the hands of “straw buyers” that purchase them in the U.S. and then sell them to drug cartels in Mexico. It should stay in effect.
