Disband the ATF: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Infringes Second Amendment

Our first Politicist Initiative (P.I.) aims to advocate for the dissolution of the ATF. Through extensive research and after thoughtful consideration, we have discovered that the activities carried out by the ATF directly contradict the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. And we have developed a bullet proof plan to take effective action within the confines of the Law.

The United States Congress, as one of the three branches of government, plays a crucial role in the functioning of American government. It is responsible for making laws, representing the interests of the people, and working within the system of checks and balances to protect the rights and freedoms of citizens. The framers of the Constitution designed a system of government with a separation of powers to prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful.

One of the primary reasons why Congress must adhere to constitutional limitations is to prevent the abuse of power. The Constitution includes a Bill of Rights that guarantees fundamental freedoms such as freedom of speech, bearing arms, religion, and peaceful assembly. By respecting these rights and not passing laws that infringe upon them, Congress upholds the principles of liberty and ensures that individuals are protected from government overreach.

The powers granted to Congress are laid out in Article I, Section 8. They specifically do not include the power to regulate the right of citizens to keep and bear arms because, it is prohibited under the Second Amendment. But somehow the ATF has been able to create a loophole to get around the Second Amendment. It took years of expert research and countless hours of studying to finally discover where the loophole is and how to close it up.

It would be far too difficult and complicated to explain everything right here right now. But we can share a little clue directly from the U.S. Supreme Court:

The provision in the Second Amendment to the Constitution, that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” is a limitation only on the power of Congress and the national government, and not of the States.  Presser v. Illinois, 116 U.S. 252, 253 (1886)

The Constitution grants certain powers to the federal government while reserving others for the states. We know the ATF is a federal agency banned by the Second Amendment, as explained by the Supreme Court-- not a state agency, making it unconstitutional. But knowing the truth is different from being able to prove the truth from extensive historical and legal documentation.

This is what we Politicists are here to do: present the truth with ample documentation in order to protect ourselves, families and communities. And the only way we can do that is by speaking and standing up for our rights. While the Constitution mentions certain rights, they can only be protected and upheld if responsible, law-abiding citizens are willing to do their part.

Together, we can make sure government stays within constitutional limitations while promoting accountability and transparency to create a better tomorrow for all Americans.

Politicists are peace-loving Americans that believe in promoting the common good by encouraging governmental transparency and oversight to strengthen the nation. We accomplish our objectives through informational resources provided for educational purposes, which do not constitute legal advice or create a relationship of any kind. Instead, they are there to assist “We the People” unify and mobilize to uphold the Constitution.
