NRA-ILA Continues Gathering Information on BATFE Demand Letters

Friday, July 29, 2011

As we have previously reported the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives soon plans to take the first step toward national gun sales registration.  In response to the BATFE plan--which will force the reporting of semi-automatic rifle sales by Federal Firearm Licensees in Southwest border states including Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas--NRA-ILA is looking to gather as much information as possible about the BATFE demand letters. 

If you are:

1)      a FFL; and

2)      received a letter from the BATFE requiring you to report multiple sales, or other dispositions, of two or more rifles, as described above, and;

3)      you have conducted such sales in the past and believe that the letter you received requires you to report them to the BATFE,

please contact NRA-ILA’s Office of Legislative Counsel.  The office may be reached by phone at (703) 267-1161, fax (703) 267-1164 or email at ILALegal@nrahq.org.  If you contact the office via fax or email, please be sure to provide your name, contact information, and, if possible, a copy of the letter you received. 

Please do not contact this office if you are not a FFL, have not received one of these demand letters, or do not conduct sales that would require such reporting.
