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 1978 to protect the public against a wide array of illegal activities by 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
- 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.
