Judge Napolitano explained that the government is supposed to gather that information for statistical purposes only, and they are mandated to destroy identifiable information such as names and addresses.

The report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), however, found that the ATF is not adhering to that policy.

“Congress decided that since the states regulate guns – not the federal government – the federal government would never be able to keep a list of every gun owner and every gun owned by that person,” Judge Napolitano said. “But they are.”
