Lee Williams, known as The Gunwriter, works with the Second Amendment Foundation. Recently he sat down with Bill McIntosh to comment on multiple Second Amendment related subjects. His background working as a writer and newspaper editor covering firearms use, gun rights, crime plus his experience as a police officer and US Army soldier, with experience in gun fights gives him a unique and informed outlook on the exercise of our 2nd Amendment rights plus the actions of the Federal government that can restrict our right to self defense.
Besides discussing open carry; the rise of counties declaring 2nd Amendment sanctuary status; media malpractice; Democrats with pistol permits: the strong virtues of the AR-15 for personal defense; ammo availability: gun calibers; weapons training, gun rights for “people of color” and David Chipman, Lee Williams has a simple and stunning proposal formulated after careful thought-namely to abolish the ATF. Williams comments:
”Well this idea came to me you know over a series of years….no body makes a better case for abolishing the ATF than the ATF, quite frankly. If you look at their history you’ve got Ruby Ridge, ok you’ve got Waco and then you’ve got Fast and Furious and there’s all a lot of commonalities in these three incidents, you’ve got crazy nuts in charge of ATF who are just driven to try to generate some good headlines -that’s all they’re about then you’ve got complete disregard for the sanctity of Human Life, yeah especially at Waco but also at Fast and Furious. Brian Terry, you know, the very decorated Border Patrolman, was killed with one of the weapons ATF let walk across the border, well so were 150 Mexican civilians. That’s a bloodbath, I mean, all because ATF wanted some good headlines…ATF let 2000 guns walk across the border. A lot of their duties are duplicated by other Federal agencies or they’re just non sensical, they’re old fashioned. It’s time to move on. We don’t need them”
