ATF Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is a federal agency under the umbrella of the different law enforcement organizations under the Department of Justice. The agency was organized under the Homeland Security Act of 2002. The ATF was initially created pursuant to the initiation of the Office of the Internal Revenue to create its own department that will be responsible for the enforcement of the tax law and at the same time to perform as a tax collecting body. When the Homeland Security Department was created and organized, the ATF was then formally transferred to become part of the Department of Justice.
