This bill would remove many restrictions that currently limit what the ATF can do. It does nothing to make people safer, or catch bad guys.

Here is a list of limitations, and prohibitions, that the ATF must currently observe, which would now be eliminated:

Elimination of limitations relating to firearms trace data
Elimination of prohibition on consolidation or centralization in the Department of Justice of firearms acquisition and disposition records maintained by Federal firearms licensees
Elimination of prohibition on imposition of requirement that firearms dealers conduct physical check of firearms inventory
Elimination of requirement that instant check records be destroyed within 24 hours
Elimination of prohibition on processing of Freedom of Information Act requests about arson or explosives incidents or firearm traces
Elimination of prohibitions relating to curios or relics and importation of surplus military firearms
Elimination of prohibition on denial of federal firearms license due to lack of business activity
Elimination of prohibition on the transfer of the functions, missions, or activities of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to other agencies or departments
Elimination of prohibition on searching computerized records of federally licensed firearms dealers who are out of business
Elimination of prohibition on denying, or failing to act on, application to import certain shotgun models on the basis that the shotgun was not particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes
Elimination of limits on frequency of record-keeping inspections of inventory and records of Federal firearms licensees
Elimination of de novo review and of opportunity to rely on evidence not previously considered
