'I am pushing for $1.5 billion dollars in federal funds for the agency,' Schumer said.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is pushing for $1.5 billion to be allocated by the federal government for gun control actions by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Schumer wants to use the funds to get the ATF to back the Interstate Task Force on Illegal Guns, the New York Post reported.

The task force is mainly focused on ridding the streets of New York of illegal guns.

Schumer expressed a desire to get the ATF involved in the task force:

“The ABCs of beating back the scourge of gun violence depends on three federal letters: A, T, and F," he said.

He added:

“I am pushing for $1.5 billion dollars in federal funds for the agency, so they can help with this work and do much more at the national level,” Schumer said.

“Without the $1.5 billion … these plans will not have their full impact, and we need full impact to address the flow of these crime guns in our communities and across our state.”

The massive gun control push comes following the death of NYPD officer Jason Rivera who was shot earlier this month, and NYPD officer Wilbert Mora was shot and fatally wounded in the same attack.

The shooting suspect in the attack was “on probation for a 2003 felony narcotics conviction in New York City,” Fox News observed.

Last year, Neon Nettle reported New York recorded its second-highest level of annual gun sales ever.

According to a report from Field & Stream:

“FBI pre-sale background checks indicate that New Yorkers are on pace to purchase their second greatest number of firearms since the NICS (National Instant Criminal Background System) check program went into effect.”

In 2021, on Black Friday alone, the FBI conducted 187,585 National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) checks on gun sales.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), Black Friday 2021 NICS checks surpassed those of 2020, which was 186,645.
