The BATFE Apparently Can’t Understand The Plain Meaning Of The 10th Amendment.

Without citing any genuine justification, the BATFE is dictating to manufacturers and dealers to ignore the newly-enacted Tennessee State law.

In actuality, manufacturers and dealers should ignore the BATFE.

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.

The BATFE director needs to read the Tenth Amendment, and the precedent-setting Lopez decision, and take a chill pill. No nexus means no jurisdiction.
