Skip to comments.ATF quietly laying groundwork to expand multiple rifle sales reporting
Posted on 05/09/2014 8:31:00 AM PDT by HammerT
A little noticed and virtually unreported April 15 notice posted in the Federal Register suggests the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives intends expanding the multiple rifle sale requirement currently imposed on four border states (Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas) to all states.
Titled Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed eCollection eComments Requested; Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Certain Rifles, and assigned OMB Number 11400100, the 60-day notice abstract declares The purpose of this information collection is to require Federal Firearms Licensees to report multiple sales or other dispositions whenever the licensee sells or otherwise disposes of two or more rifles within any five consecutive business days with the following characteristics: (a) Semi automatic; (b) a caliber greater than .22; and (c) the ability to accept a detachable magazine.
Comments are encouraged and will be accepted for 60 days until June 16, 2014, the notice advises. That means much of the comment period has already passed with most unaware it ever began. And the ATF website offers no additional information other than links to the notice and to various forms.
The question now becomes, especially with a seeming total lack of publicity, is ATF attempting an under the radar action to impose on the entire country what they previously imposed (over objections that could have been stronger) on southwest gun buyers and sellers?
Now that ATF is saying straw purchasers are altering their behavior, expect that to be used as justification to expand this requirement to all the states,.
Those wishing to make comments within the 41 remaining days the period will be open can find further information on the Federal Register proposal information page, and then click on the Submit a formal comment button — or you can try to.

Next itll be reporting on just one gun, then all guns and hello! Registration!
And we all know what happens then
DICTATORS cannot have an armed citizenry out against them.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
Oh, wait! That wasn't us! That was the FBI/BATFE/DOJ!
You cant very well redistribute the wealth without a monopoly on the use of force.
Were getting well past that consent of the governed concept.
The current laww imposed on border states alone is unconstitutional.
Hmmm maybe there should be restrictions on the actions of the FBI/BATFE/DOJ?
Just sayin ..
Thats a nice compact set up that would be easy to hide somewhere out of gun grabbing hands
Do they realize that we dont necessarily have to keep all our guns in one place?
Comment everyone! They cannot do this without repealing FOPA 1986. This action is specifically prohibited by Federal Law!
They are committing an illegal act!
I am kicking myself in the arse for not buying a crate of 10 for $650 years ago.
I’ll give you $700! Meet me in the alley behind McDonalds!;-D
Citizen: "My lawyer advised me never to talk to law enforcement without him present, but I'll indulge you. You see, I lost all of my firearms in a horrible boating accident last year and I am simply trying to get back to where I was. Unfortunately, I was travelling with them in my canoe yesterday when I reached for a beer , and lo and behold, I flipped the canoe losing everything I have bought recently. Good day!"

What are those?
Looks like RPK’s but I’m not sure.
It doesn’t matter what the law says in plain text. It is only illegal if someone takes them to court and the court agrees it is illegal. Not very likely.
You don’t want those old things. Not a single picatinny rail among them! Now, I’d be happy to take them off your hands...
