GOP Hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy to Call for Shut Down of ATF 

On Friday, in his speech at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) convention in Indianapolis, Republican presidential candidate and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy will call for the shutdown of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), as well as expanded Second Amendment rights for Americans,  

“The ATF is an agency beyond repair. I have already pledged to shut down the FBI and rebuild a new federal law enforcement apparatus from scratch. This new apparatus can perform the function of background checks without creating a gun registry or shadow database – and I will shut down the ATF whose culture has become so toxic that it cannot merely be ‘reformed,'” Ramaswamy will say, according to a preview of the speech obtained by Fox News Digital. 

Ramaswamy will also call for expanded Second Amendment rights for Americans, including making constitutional carry the “law of the land.”
