New Era at ATF? Agency Shuts Down Cheap Gun Manufacturer in Win for Control Groups


(USA Today) – The nation’s gun regulatory agency took the rare step of revoking the license of an American gun manufacturer, a win for a gun control group that has dogged the company tied to illegal trafficking of cheap guns.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives acknowledged in court Wednesday that it would revoke the license of Nevada-based JA Industries, LLC, a reorganization of Jimenez Arms, which has long garnered the attention of Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization that advocates gun control.
