In addition to his important inquiry about Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives dealer inspection practices (please see story above), Rep. Don Young asked BATFE officials about other problems that have long plagued rural Alaskans, including: how to identify themselves when buying firearms, and how to complete the "address" block on federal firearm transfer forms, in a state where many people don't have conventional street addresses, or even rural route addresses. In response to those concerns, the bureau has now issued an "Open Letter to All Alaska Federal Firearms Licensees," explaining that a physical description of a person's residence location (e.g., "300 yards North of the Post Office" or "Mile 50 on Old Richardson Highway") is acceptable both on the federal transfer form and on the purchaser's identification, as long as this type of description is considered sufficient by the state.
