Gun Owners of America Senior Vice President Erich Pratt says that the Biden administration is going after gun owners and using the ATF to try to shut gun shops down. 

"Biden has implemented a zero tolerance policy," Pratt said on the Wednesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "If a gun store makes one mistake, the ATF skips the traditional warnings and goes straight to license revocation. These could be just simple clerical mistakes. Licensing revocations are up anywhere from 300 to 500 percent. This is the most since the early 2000s."

Pratt said he received this information about the Biden administration going after gun owners through a Freedom of Information Act request.

"This is an attack on the gun industry and the Second Amendment," he stated. "By closing down gun stores, they make it more difficult for people to get guns to defend themselves."

According to Pratt, this policy and these actions also have an additional agenda. 

"It's also an attempt by the Biden administration to register gun owners because when a store is closed down, the 4473 forms are sent to the ATF and those gun purchase records are being inputted into a database," he noted.

"So the ATF has accumulated nearly 1 billion records in a searchable database which can be used to enforce Biden's recent gun ban," he concluded. "In other words, this is a registration database that can be used to confiscate firearms."
