The Biden Admin Collected 54 Million Records of Gun Owners, Wants Permanent and Mandatory Storage

The Biden administration has amassed records of more than 54 million gun owners, according to the Washington Free Beacon. Additionally, the administration intends to review gun regulations to legalize gun ownership information gathering.

The outlet reported that the federal government collected transaction records of firearm businesses that go out of business and extracted gun owners’ information.

Additionally, an ATF spokesman told the Free Beacon that the National Tracing Center processes millions of similar records every month, highlighting the gravity of the problem.

The gun records are stored at a facility in West Virginia, a building whose floor had collapsed due to the sheer weight of the records, according to the New York Times.

Currently, the law requires that federally licensed firearms dealers collect and keep transaction records for 20 years.
