In 2021, the Biden Administration announced a new “Zero Tolerance” policy for revoking the licenses of firearm sellers, known as Federal Firearms Licensees or “FFLs.” As part of this new policy, the ATF recently updated its “Federal Firearms Administrative Action Policy and Procedures.”
Gun Owners of America obtained copies of this updated ATF order, revised under the Biden Administration in January of 2022, along with the prior versionthat existed under the Trump Administration.
Based on a review of changes in ATF’s policy, it is clear that the Biden Administration is seeking to weaponize ATF’s bureaucracy against the entire Second Amendment industry.
Here are the ATF’s leaked internal guidelines for FFL revocation: (scribed documents in link below)
The Biden Administration’s new Zero Tolerance policy is overly harsh—seemingly intentionally so—on honest gun stores.
In fact, between January and September of 2022, ATF field offices in Charlotte, Columbus, Houston, Louisville, New Orleans, and St. Paul revoked licenses more frequently than they issued “warning conferences”—a much less severe penalty that ATF’s own manual deems is necessary to “assess the FFL’s potential to achieve compliance and determine any potential risks to public safety and firearm traceability.”
In other words, under the Biden Administration, ATF has changed its focus from regulating the gun industry to destroying it by whatever means possible—eliminating access to firearms by putting as many gun dealers as possible out of business.

There was at least a 200% increase in FFL revocations since enactment of ATF’s Zero Tolerance policy. Of course, license revocations are a lengthy process, and this number almost certainly will continue to increase. Compare Biden’s Zero Tolerance policy to ATF’s prior policy:
The Communist Biden Regimes goal is to disarm the law abiding, unleash criminals upon them, incite civil war, and invite China in to restore order.
The rest is easy to figure out.
