Federal ATF Gun Crimes Defense Lawyer
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Enforces Federal Gun Laws
The ATF is a Federal Bureau in the Department of Justice formed in 2003 to protect the public against a wide array of illegal activities. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is tasked with enforcing laws prohibiting the use of weapons such as firearms and explosives, and illegal trafficking of tobacco and alcohol.
The ATF’s range of responsibilities cast a broad brush across many different kinds of illegal activities, including:
- The use of bombs and explosives
- Eliminate safety threats posed by gangs and other organized crime
- Contraband alcohol and tobacco trading (with the aim of reducing lost tax revenue)
- Criminal possession and use of firearms
The D.C. vs. Heller ruling in 2008 by the United States Supreme Court upheld an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, defending the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Too often, prosecuting attorneys will pad on weapons charges to inflate felony offenses. They ignore your rights, and you suffer a longer sentence as a consequence.
Milwaukee gun lawyer Tom Grieve has been in the court of defendants subject to such unfair legal treatment. He has stood up against ATF review boards and defended individuals’ right to bear arms. You can trust him to defend your rights when they are under attack on the local or state level.
Wisconsin Lawmakers Propose New Ban on Semi-Automatic Weapons
Lawmakers in the Wisconsin State Assembly have co-sponsored a proposed bill to change the definition of a “semi-automatic assault weapon” to include rifles, shotguns and pistols with any of a large list of specific criteria. The new proposed gun control bill, containing no grandfathering provision, would result in full-fledged confiscation of eligible weapons state-wide.
With experience fighting the ATF, a powerful federal agency, you can trust Milwaukee criminal defense lawyer Tom Grieve to fight for you tooth and nail to defend your right to keep and bear arms should new gun control legislation pass now or in the near future.
Milwaukee Criminal Defense Attorney Protects Your Second Amendment Rights
No matter the prosecuting party, we will stand by your side and defend you against attacks on your liberty. The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution defends your right to keep and bear arms. No local, state or federal governing committee or body such as the ATF can take that away from you.
Gun owner tip:
Putting a firearm in your will or transferring them properly requires special paperwork. Improper paperwork can create fines and criminal liability. Learn more about NFA Gun Trusts.
