    They shoot our dogs

    The ATFs true mission is vital to tackling violent crime in our nation. Unfortunately, it is so much easier to jump on the political bandwagon.



  4. Jdeast 2016 on October 27, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    Registration is for confiscation, no other reason.



  5. Ray Hanes on October 27, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    They need to have their trophy case unloaded. Those guns that are legal should be auctioned. If they are not legal they should be functionally disabled and auctioned.



  6. Spooky DaScary on October 27, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    Thank you nra.



  7. Nicholas K on October 27, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Seems like a pointless agency, since booze running and cigarette smuggling is not nearly as big as it used to be, that only leaves firearms, why not just roll these guys into the FBI? So inefficient to have so many federal agencies.



  8. Damien Vera on October 27, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    0:37 that’s the way it should be



  9. marwar on October 27, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    This is absolutely ridiculous they are not allowed to make those records searchable. F the NRA!



  10. Phil Roe on October 27, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    If you have the gun, you most likely have the perpetrator. That’s all anyone needs to prosecute the crime. The ONLY purpose of firearms tracing is so the ATF can lobby congress for further restrictions on law abiding citizens second amendment rights. It is all about power and control. It has nothing to do with "solving crime."



  11. BladeObsession on October 27, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Did they trace down the guns the Government sold to Mexican cartesl in Operation Fast and Furious?



  12. TJ Marion on October 27, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    absolutely love how hard it is for these scumbags to do their jobs



  13. omghegotagun on October 27, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    You people should be jobless.



  14. Dudley do rite on October 27, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    Yeah but where do you keep the alcohol



  15. Max Killough on October 27, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    Hahahaha



  16. Scout339 on October 27, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    How do we ‘accidentally’ cause some of those records to be removed because of an accidental fire.
    Abolish the ATF and abolish the Patriot act.



  17. Kaldor Draigo on October 27, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Seems like such a waste of paper…



  18. SlowlyLosinIt on October 27, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    In an instance of finding the person that shot my son, brother, or mother (in scenario sense), I’d rather them not be able to trace the gun than for the ATF to trace all guns and have the local sheriff department show up at my door, requesting the acquisition of my firearms or be met with deadly force, on orders of democrats who banned them (scenario sense again). I shall bear arms till the day I day. Whether that’s in my warm bed, family by my side, or shot in vein and cold blood by my own (or another) government. My freedom trumps your falsehood that you call "safety" (or government-forced safety).



  19. firehawk 99 on October 27, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    Criminals by definition do not follow laws so any law that restricts gun ownership is not to impede the criminals it’s to impede citizens who want only to protect themselves.



  20. Jose Garcia on October 27, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    But how many crimes of those 340,000 are actually solved because of this?



  21. Awesome Silver on October 27, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    The harder their job the better I feel.



  22. Brick Coolin on October 27, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    What happens if someone burned the whole building down? Do they keep copies



  23. BLACK GOKU on October 27, 2021 at 5:46 pm

  24. Eagle LeBird on October 27, 2021 at 5:46 pm

  25. Thomas Boccardo on October 27, 2021 at 5:48 pm

  32. ikenbomb! on October 27, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    Gun tracing is unconstitutional!



  33. Scout339 on October 27, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    uploaded in 2016
    has picture of Biden at 1:10
    ATF is so concerned about stomping on your rights that they put up his picture when he was in the Senate because he agreed with them. Hmm…



  34. chris lesley on October 27, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    ATF NEEDS TO BE DISBANDED



  35. ZORAfilms on October 27, 2021 at 6:05 pm

  38. Jaime Martinez on October 27, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    are we supposed to be sorry for the ATF???



  39. Clayton Bigsby on October 27, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    ATF can DIEEE!!!



  40. Skyline_Guy on October 27, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    I’d say lets just make there lives easier and disband the ATF and make it illegal to create a similar organization. Burn all the documents and save the tax payers money.



  41. John Metzger on October 27, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    We don’t need your permission to have fire arms. you children will eat sewer rats in a labor camp after a government gun grab.



  42. OblivionSavage17 on October 27, 2021 at 6:11 pm

    Imagine being able to test guns out all day. I don’t care if it only pays 29k a year ima have fun



  43. no other names to think of on October 27, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    I was gonna bring my dog to the comment section but an ATF agent shot him



  44. tummy sticks on October 27, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    This branch is as anti american as isis along with most media and new sources like gq and youtube



  45. Lex & Cinnabon on October 27, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Handicapped hunters shooting .50BMGs at game half a mile away? Hahaha I wonder who retrieves them.



  46. M D on October 27, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    Even this system is too much. There should be no record at all.



  47. blksubiesti on October 27, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    Imagine if Biden had a searchable database of all the “assault weapons” he demands to ban and confiscate
    People working here playing victim you get it yet? Why our founding fathers were against this? So you can’t assist Tyrants.,. “Bingo”



  48. ikenbomb! on October 27, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    All those weapons stolen under the color of law! Sad!



  49. Bigbearjblaze on October 27, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    The law actually says no registration or confiscation ever. But that’s just the constitution…



  50. FManAngryAmerican on October 27, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    (Plays sad violin music for the ATF)
