Gun Lobby Keeps ATF Under-Resourced, Beleaguered As Industry Grows

A Washington Post investigation found that ATF is inadequately resourced and so beleaguered that it hasn’t had a director in years.

Sources said the gun industry, particularly the NRA, has blocked resources from the ATF, preventing the agency from accessing computerized records of gun sales, for instance.

Despite the growth of the industry, ATF has fewer officers now than it did nearly 40 years ago, the Post found.
