The US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) on Monday released a Valentine's Day post, using the occasion to encourage people to go to the authorities with dirt on their ex-romantic partners who may be involved in the trafficking of illegal firearms.
"Valentine's Day can still be fun even if you broke up," ATF posted, "Do you have information about a former (or current) partner involved in illegal gun activity? Let us know, and we will make sure it's a Valentine's Day to remember! Call 1-888-ATF-TIPS or email ATFTips@atf.gov."
The Biden administration has been in favor of stringent gun control measures. In April 2021, they released a new initiative designed to combat what they called a "public health epidemic" of gun violence.
President Biden has also publicly called for a "red-flag law" at the national level so that people's guns could be confiscated preemptively, if that person was reported to present a potential danger to themselves or others.
Replies by Twitter users made fun of the post:
"He's not a former or current partner, but here's a tip regarding an illegal gun purchase," said one reply from Deb Heine, a recognized author who was the inventor of the term "Blue Anon."
"Name: Robert Hunter Biden," the tweet continues:
Human Events' Jack Posobiec wrote, "You mean like this guy?" captioning a photo of Hunter Biden:
Hunter Biden reportedly purchased a gun illegally after making false claims on a background check form in 2018.
