ATF’s War on Privately Made Guns Based on Fake Numbers ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. -( I’m Charlie Cook and welcome to another Ammoland News Second Amendment Update.

Was the ATF’s war on privately manufactured firearms based on bad information?

That is the question that AmmoLand News wants to be answered.

For a bit of background…. the ATF’s attack on unfinished frames and receivers was largely based on the work of former Special Agent in Charge of the Los Angeles Field Division, Carlos A. Canino.

Special Agent Canino told the Bloomberg-funded propaganda website,, the Trace,,, that 41% of all firearms recovered were “ghost guns.”

But was that number truely accurate?

That is what the Second Amendment Foundation’s Investigative Journalism Project wanted to know. So, they reached out to the ATF to get answers. And to their credit. ATF’s Public Affairs Spokesperson, Erik Longnecker, actually answered SAF’s email.

Longnecker stated that he contacted the ATF’s LA Field Division, the source of the suspicious number, but they could not verify Canino’s wild claim.

Keep in mind this now unverifiable data is what kicked off the BIDEN-ATF war against homemade firearms.

This bogus information will shut down American companies and cost 1000s of people their jobs when the new rule surrounding homemade guns is unveiled later this month. More importantly, Americans will be severely hampered in their ability to make their own guns because of bad data.

So, what is the point of pushing flawed data?

Well, that question is easy to answer. The gun grabbers want to confuse & conflate stolen guns with obliterated serial numbers,,, with perfectly legal homemade firearms. That way, they can demonize a historical American tradition and push for it to be banned.

The ATF teaming up and providing unverifiable information to the propaganda arm of the Bloomberg anti-gun machine is just another example of why it is time to defund and disband the out-of-control government agency.

One of the main problems with the data about unserialized firearms is that most statistics do not separate home-built firearms from factory-made guns that had the serial numbers scratched off. Most cops have never even seen a gun made from an 80% kit show up at a crime scene. It is easier for criminals to buy a stolen gun on a street corner than it is to build a pistol from a Polymer80 kit.

It is part of the gun-grabbers playbook.

When they didn’t like bump stocks, they exploited a tragedy to empower the ATF to change the rules to ban the device. These underhanded tactics aren’t new. This is what they do.

What do you think?  Should the ATF be disbanded?

Of course the AFT should be disbanded,as it is not a Constitutionally authorized agency to begin with,it should have never been formed as with many other alphabet agencies.


Nailed it. Nothing else to say.


batfe exists to violate and infringe on the 2nd Amendment, and should be abolished via memo, the same way the plague on justice was birthed.

Dean Weingarten

If the numbers were correct, they would not justify a ban on homemade firearms. Making your own gun is protected by the Second Amendment. It is an American tradition.

With nearly 500 million privately owned guns in the United States, a few hundred thousand homemade guns additional a year has no significant effect.


a few hundred thousand homemade guns additional a year has no significant effect.

That’s true because we know it’s the home made mentally defective people that commit the murders that are the problem regardless of how many guns are homemade or manufactured and sold.


Dean, there’s an old Soviet rule of propaganda and control which Alinsky condensed in his rules for radicles, “The message is never about the message.”


This article is dealing with an action under Step 4….. The 8 steps to communism These are the eight levels of controls by Saul Alinsky to transform a nation through socialism into communism. 1. Healthcare – control healthcare and you control the people. 2. Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you provide everything for them to live. 3. Debt – Increase the debt level to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes and this will produce more poverty. 4. Gun… Read more »

You can’t believe anything that the U.S. government puts out as fact, they have lied to the American people for so long and the national media is right there to push the story.


BATF lie , FBI lie see a pattern here ? Time to desolve these unconstitutional alphabet soup agencies .


Yes, the ATF should be disbanded. I think it’s outlived it’s usefulness. Things have changed since it’s inception. There are now more citizens skillfully trained in the safe use of firearms, than there are all federal, state, and local government agencies combined. The money saved by cutting this agency out, could be better used by other agencies, enforcing the laws already on the books. We need less government, not more, but this argument is lost before it even gets started with the democraps!


YES! The Bureaucracy of the AFT(biden) has broken Constitutional LAW! Considering the ‘atf’ was formed by a “director in the irs” WITHOUT being authorized by Congressional votes! THUS, ALL of the UNLAWFUL “rules and regulations” coming out of this ILLEGAL bureaucracy ARE NULL and VOID!! YES, DELETE, REMOVE, DISOLVE, DISMANTEL OBLITERATE this bureaucratic organization! The ATF and all of its tentacles MUST BE DISBANDED and all of the GUN REGISTRYs formed must be DELETED, even the OVERSEAS registries of American Citizens —- Permanently! ANY and ALL searchable data base(s) created by this UNLAWFUL ‘atf’, no matter how they classify it,… Read more »

Good analysis and accurate conclusion!!!


Absolutely, the ATF should be disbanded and certain managers and agents should be prosecuted for civil rights violations.

We should make it abundantly clear to anyone wanting our support for office, they have to be prepared to implement an agenda of a a house cleaning of all agencies, and really harmful ones disbanded, or functions divided up.

Certainly the ATF, DOE, DHS, FBI, Tony Fauci’s agency and the Patriot Act need to go.


Defund, dismantle, disarm and destroy the rogue, woke, demon rat infested alphabet agency!!!! After the searchable registry they have to be eliminated because no one in there right mind would trust them to destroy the registry!! That is against the law and no one’s above the LAW!!

Wild Bill

Yes!!! And welcome to the site.


A state, is called the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly lieth it also; and this lie creepeth from its mouth: “I, the state, am the people.” It is a lie! Creators were they who created peoples, and hung a faith and a love over them: thus they served life. Destroyers, are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state: they hang a sword and a hundred cravings over them. Where there is still a people, there the state is not understood, but hated as the evil eye, and as sin against laws and customs. Friedrich Nietzsche,… Read more »

Expect the following sequence of events:

  1. The new ATF rules make it more difficult for the criminal element to construct their own firearms.
  2. Theft of firearms from the law abiding goes up because criminals can’t build their own.
  3. Because of the steep rise in firearm theft there will be a push for storage requirements within your home and auto.
  4. Because the otherwise law abiding will tell the government to shove their storage requirements where the sun don’t shine, there will be a push to punish those that “allow” their firearms to be stolen.
  5. etc.
Wild Bill

The only event, in the sequence, that I don’t see happening is the criminal element following the new ATF rules.
