ATF NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT HANDBOOK
This easy-to-follow handbook is for anyone interested in the business of importing, manufacturing and dealing in firearms. The book will be equally useful for firearms collectors who have questions about the application of the National Firearms Act (NFA). While this publication is not a law book, it is a reference book that helps the reader find answers to questions concerning the NFA.
Although the primary focus of the handbook is the NFA, it also covers provisions of the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Arms Export Control Act impacting NFA firearms businesses and collectors.
Covered topics include:
- The definition of “firearms” Under the NFA?
- Registration of NFA Firearms
- Taxes Imposed By the NFA
- Qualifying To Do Business in NFA Firearms
- Manufacturing, Importing, Exporting and Transferring NFA Firearms
- Record keeping and Required Reports and Notifications to ATF
- Penalties and Sanctions
- And more!
"'ATF National Firearms Act Handbook' is an indispensable reference guide for anyone needing to understand the complex provisions in the National Firearms Act (NFA). I was interested in this book because we are seriously considering applying for a Federal Firearms License (FFL), so it is very important to be absolutely sure that we are familiar and compliant with all of the laws and regulations.
This is the definitive guide since it was created in association with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the governmental agency responsible for enforcing firearm laws. The book has been formatted to make finding specific information quickly and it is written, where possible, in mostly layman's terms making it easier to understand both the letter and spirit of the regulations.
If you are new to firearm regulations, the first two chapters will be very beneficial to understanding the terms, acronyms, and the classifications of firearms. The remaining chapters cover the laws and regulations, with Chapter 5 specifically covering the business licensing of firearms dealers. The extensive Appendixes cover the actual NFA, forms, rulings, and sample letters.
This is a great resource for the firearms collector, enthusiast, and business owner.
