The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ramped up a public relations campaign recently at a massive gun show in Northern Virginia, warning gun sellers and buyers not to believe “myths” about the agency.
The ATF routinely sets up tables at gun shows across the country to interact with America’s firearms community and hit the Nation’s Gun Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia, armed with Obama-era handouts titled “ATF Myths – Not everything you hear is true.”
The flyer is a list of accusations and notions about the ATF that the agency wants to set straight about itself to the public. For example, the agency says it is “false” that the bureau “wants to” confiscate firearms. “The ATF supports the firearms industry & works to promote lawful gun ownership.”
The handout also says that it is “false” that the ATF makes gun laws, explaining that “Congress makes federal laws; ATF enforces them.”
The effort failed to impress several gun-rights enthusiasts whom The Washington Times spoke with at the Nation’s Gun Show, which boasted over 2 miles of guns, accessories, ammo, knives, surplus, military antiques and collectible firearms.
