Protecting the Public: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' Compliance Inspections Effectively Targeted Firearms Violators

By United States Department of the Treasury


Description
Government Reference Publication

Excerpt
Excerpt: The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) established the first comprehensive Federal licensing system for importers, manufacturers, and dealers in firearms to the retail level. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is responsible for enforcing the licensing provisions of the GCA, which requires the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) to maintain detailed records. Once a license is issued, ATF may inspect an FFL's inventory and records without warrant to ensure compliance with recordkeeping requirements of the GCA. Since 1986, however, the law has limited ATF to one such inspection during a 12-month period, absent consent of the licensee.
