Without citing any genuine justification, the BATFE is dictating to manufacturers and dealers to ignore the newly-enacted Tennessee State law. http://www.tfaonline.org/downloads/ATFfirearmsfreedomact.pdf

Federal jurisdiction over FFL-licensed manufacture and sale of firearms is based on established Federal jurisdiction over interstate commerce. If a gun doesn’t cross a state line then that is intrastate commerce, and hence outside of Federal jurisdiction.
