Proposed Changes To National Firearms Act Transfers.

The Department of Justice is proposing to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) regarding the making or transferring of a firearm under the National Firearms Act. The proposed regulations would:

  1. add a definition for the term “responsible person”
  2. require each responsible person of a corporation, trust or legal entity to complete a specified form, and to submit photographs and fingerprints.
  3. require that a copy of all applications to make or transfer a firearm be forwarded to the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) of the locality in which the maker or transferee is located.
  4. eliminate the requirement for a certification signed by the CLEO.
