The Assault on Gun Dealers

Alan Gottlieb, Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and the Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation notes that the $31.8 billion gun industry is under increasing pressure from ATF enforcement of onerous regulations that threaten to put the industry out of business.
Every gun sold requires a Form 4473 which is a six page questionnaire that includes 132 items. If one item is not answered accurately the government can revoke the gun dealers license and the onus is on the gun dealer to prove the accuracy of every detail, a task that is virtually impossible. Questions include the ethnic background of the gun purchaser.
The number of ATF field inspections has doubled since 2005 and under Obama the number of violations uncovered has jumped 30 percent according to the ATF Industry Operation Inspection Results, a report tracking the agency’s 2013 audits for the industry.

“They are burying the industry in often intrusive and irrelevant paperwork,” notes Gottlieb, who observes that gun dealers have been attacked for the most minute clerical error. “The process could be handled with a simple one page form. The purpose of this administrative assault on the gun industry is harassment and an attempt to gather private information about gun owners,” says Gottlieb.
