NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Enforcement Programs and Services (EPS) Division has posted a new chart for its form processing times and the latest information is not good.

NFA Forms 1 and 4 are now taking 10 months to process. NSSF is working to get additional resources committed to EPS through the Congressional appropriations process.

NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane issued the following statement:

“The delays and lack of timely customer service, which grows worse every month, is significantly interfering with the ability of members of our industry to engage in the lawful commerce and grow their businesses and create more good paying jobs here in America. It also infringes on the ability of law abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights in a timely manner, and a right delayed is a right denied.”

About NSSF The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 6,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.
