Sacramento ATF Attorney
Defense for Firearms and Violent Crimes
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, also known as the ATF is the federal organization at the frontline against violent crimes. Although you may not be familiar with all the ways the ATF monitors, tracks and works to remove illegal weapons from circulation, they have a variety of programs and actions in place to do just that.
The ATF fully understands the impact firearms and other weapons play in the commission of drug crimes, sex crimes, domestic violence and other violent crimes. That is why they are taking an active role in pursuing an integrated strategy to regulate and enforce laws concerning the possession and use of firearms.
One of the top priorities of the ATF focuses on first time and repeat offenders of violent crimes; career criminals, drug traffickers, gangs, as well as domestic and international arms traffickers. Dangerous criminals armed with firearms can expect to be facing heavy sentences including fine and significant jail time when they are charged and convicted.
The ATF also works closely with state and local officials to educate them and increase the awareness of the federal prosecution options available for individual facing weapon charges.
