Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- Those of you who contacted BATFE about their proposed regulation to collect data across the country from dealers who sell more than one semi-automatic rifle to a customer, got the following response.
Looks like the BATFE has backed off,,, for now:
ATF would like to thank you for your submission of comments for OMB Collection 1140-0100/ Report of Multiple Sales or Other Disposition of Certain Rifles. ATF has the authority to collect this information in accordance with 18 U.S.C 923 (g) (5) (A). The OMB Collection 1140-0100 has not been extended to any states outside of the Southwest Border, as it was originally intended.
This collection is merely an extension of the existing collection, which has been successful in ATF’s efforts in reducing and preventing violent crime. The Southwest Border is targeted due to a culmination of crime statistics deriving from these states that indicate many crimes are being committed with not only handguns, but also with certain types of rifles as well. By requiring the reporting of multiple sales of the specified rifles, this extension provides significant investigative leads to law enforcement in pursuing firearms trafficking to Mexico and along the southwest border.
