National Shooting Sport Foundation (NSSF) Offers Tools or FFL Holders

The NSSF is constantly looking for ways to help the firearms trade to deal with the ever changing array of laws and regulations.  One of the tools they provide is an online resource center that helps the FFL holder and Firearms retailer to stay in compliance.

Regulatory compliance is becoming a bigger part of the daily operation of a firearms business.  The basic Tool Box on this useful website includes not only licensing and regulation assistance.  There are articles and videos all aimed at helping the professional maintain a business that is both profitable and in compliance with the myriad of laws and regulations that apply to your business.

NSSF puts on seminars for retailers around the country, the schedule and locations are listed on the site.  An Import/Export Conference is hosted by NSSF as well.  Anyone who has attended the SHOT Show will recognize the “SHOT Show University” a program of training courses designed to improve business skills for attendees of the show.

There is a huge amount of material at the web site that we have not even mentioned here.  If your in the business or are thinking about getting into the gun business this is an invaluable resource you should check out.

Anti Gunners in the Government Create a Problem So They Can Rescue US

It just makes me sick to think that the Justice Department signed off on this.  I hope the Senator investigating never lets go.  The memos mentioned in this report are damning enough to indicate there is malfeasance involved here (For those of you at the justice department, that means your actions are criminal).

Too bad a half dozen of this ATF agents co-workers were not lined up behind him to support his story.  At least he is trying to do what’s right.

Act Immediately to Block ATF Long Gun Sales Reporting!

Time Sensitive!  Act by February 14th, 2011

Act Immediately to Block ATF Long Gun Sales Reporting!
If you’re one of the nearly 71 million Americans who live in the four southwest border states, some of your gun purchases could soon be reported to the federal government. And whether you live in one of those states or elsewhere, your help is needed now to stop the federal government’s plan to register Americans’ gun purchases.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is demanding the authority to require all of the 8,500 firearm dealers in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to report all sales of two or more semiautomatic rifles within five consecutive business days, if the rifles are larger than .22 caliber and use detachable magazines. For example, a dealer would have to tell the government every time a deer hunter in Sacramento or Amarillo finds a good deal on a pair of semi-auto .30-06s like the popular Remington 7400.

The ATF has no legal authority to demand these reports, and the flood of new paperwork will waste scarce law enforcement resources that should be spent on legitimate investigations.

Unfortunately, there are only a few days left to comment on this proposal. Comments will be accepted until Monday, February 14. Every concerned gun owner’s voice should be heard on this critically important issue.
