SB Tactical Supports ATF Accountability Legislation

Bradenton, Fla. – SB Tactical stands behind the Firearms Regulatory Accountability Coalition, Inc., (FRAC) and lawmakers Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) in their joint, bipartisan effort to pass legislation aimed at improving the transparency of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

FRAC has worked with Rep. Crenshaw and Rep. Cuellar to introduce the ATF Accountability Act of 2021, which is much needed legislation that creates a transparent appeals and review process against arbitrary and capricious rulings and determinations by ATF—particularly, the Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division (FATD).

As a FRAC member, SB Tactical wholeheartedly supports the ATF Accountability Act of 2021 as it promotes sound regulatory procedures for an industry struggling to keep pace with an agency that has been issuing private legal interpretations in an ad hoc and inconsistent manner for years. The proposed procedures will help alleviate regulatory uncertainty and allow licensees to ensure compliance with federal law through a more fair and transparent process within the ATF.

In 2020, FRAC was successful in alerting and mobilizing the industry to pressure the ATF to remove harmful and reckless guidance on the classification of pistol braces that would have cost the firearms industry over $1 billion dollars in lost revenue and thousands of American manufacturing jobs. SB Tactical is sincerely appreciative of Rep. Crenshaw’s and Rep, Cuellar’s resolve in introducing this legislation, as it will give small businesses an opportunity to immediately address ATF rulings that are contrary to law or arbitrarily inconsistent with prior rulings, without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal lawsuits.

SB Tactical encourages everyone to take action and contact their congressional representatives and encourage them to support the ATF Accountability Act. It’s as simple as clicking and filling out the form.
