The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is reportedly looking to trim some regulatory fat with regard to firearms in the United States.
According to The Trace, the ATF held three closed-door meetings in May and June with firearms industry leaders, law enforcement officials, and reps from gun control organizations, asking each group which on-the-books gun regulations could be removed without posing a risk to public safety.

The Trace obtained an agenda for the May 22 meeting held with firearms industry leaders in which the ATF asked attendees to consider these three questions: what impact current gun regulations have on gun-violence prevention; what regulations need to be “repealed, replaced, or modified,” and what regulations are outdated.
In the meeting with the gun control groups, also held on May 22, the ATF asked attendees—including representatives from Americans for Responsible Solutions, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Everytown for Gun Safety—if there were any gun regulations they “would oppose eliminating.”
