Hice Pressures ATF to Promote Fairness in Firearms Testing

“I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment, and support every citizen’s right to bear arms. Due to the lack of any clearly defined testing requirements by ATF, Georgia’s gun manufacturing industry is punished. Additionally, customers who wish to purchase weapons for safety are disadvantaged because businesses have been forced to close their doors. I’ve introduced this legislation to hold the ATF accountable for this lack of transparency and possible corruption, and it is my hope that this will yield a more productive environment for businesses, Second Amendment patriots, and our nation as a whole. My bill would ensure that the ATF is responsible for recording the testing of weapons on video, and then make that video available to the manufacturer should there be a dispute in the testing procedures.”

Nope. This is rearranging deck chairs on the titanic.
There shouldn't even BE an ATF "testing process" to be videoed BECAUSE the executive branch isn't tasked with crafting the law. The Congress must engage on this front IF it can demonstrate its authority to do so. Oh Wait, it doesn't HAVE that authority either....shall not be infringed.

If a manufacturer produces a inferior product, a flawed product then hold them accountable in the negligence arena within the judiciary. Otherwise, the free market will decide which companies succeed and which ones fail.

Why is this concept, this codified arrangement called Constitutional Process, so hard to grasp?

I submit that this is grandstanding of the highest order. Presenting the false premise that ATF is empowered to MAKE LAW, via "rule making" is a huge red flag drawing my call of bovine excrement.

I know, I know, this is supposedly 'better' and a "step in the right direction", but I see things differently. One can go in a circle forever thinking they are "going the right direction" and that their 'progress: is a :good: thing. They can delude themselves if they want to think such a thing. I refuse. I will Not comply - with that circular motion, that circle jerk. I will call it exactly what it is......pure and unadulterated BULLSHIT.

Anon 3:35pm,
Yes, it would be ideal to be rid of those unConstitutional BATFEces leeches. But until that day, make them prove, with video, the results of their tests.
ANd make them do it on the same, IF NOT LESS, of their current budget.

What makes this moke believe that the ATF would abide by this statute any more than it or any other agency abide by existing statutes? If the barstids in the federal government routinely ignore the Constitution (i.e. the ostensible "supreme law of the land") why would anyone expect them to pay any attention to a mere act of congress? Of course that assumes it actually gets to the floor and is passed, and is passed by the Senate and THEN is actually signed into law by Emperor Barack the First.
