ATF Form 4473 revised starting January 16, 2017

Written by

Just a heads up to firearms purchasers that the ATF announced on the 14th that they have revised ATF 4473. For those who are not frequent buyers, it is the Federal used for all firearms purchases through a dealer.
Here is the current one: https://www.atf.gov/file/61446/download

Here is a very detailed description of the changes: http://orchidadvisors.com/atf-form-4473-firearms-transaction-record-form-4473-revised/?utm_campaign=Industry+Alerts&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=37660754&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9aI2FjityVgUS4XcDEvoxR6G8UguI-zGPOduOMd7ITBVqLzwt85dSwevRKX6z74MrJXvXBlrRnhgt2hfG9x7q7efGFoA&_hsmi=37660754

 

To be honest, I only skimmed the article but I did not seeing anything dramatically huge, and it actually clarifies some issues. However, it is definitely something to be aware of for those that may be tempted to skim through the form.

This is ridiculous, she is suing under the guise of "consumer safety" on an item that cannot be legally purchased in her state! 

The only good thing is that the judge told Glock to negotiate the scope of records with her. Her original request does not limit consumer records to just the state of Mass.
Please tell me what consumer personal information in any other state has to do with meeting Mass' consumer protection laws?

Nothing.

Sandy Hook lawsuit dismissed - Some sanity in court.

Written by

Finally, some sanity in th legal world. The Sandy Hook Lawsuit had been previously ok'd in court under the auspices of a legal argument that said the semi-autos used in the Sandy Hook shooting should have been known to be harmful to the public and therefore exempt from the Federal 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act' (PLCAA). This was a pretty weak argument and if you read the law it is actually intended to protect manufacturers from this very type of lawsuit. The previous allowance of the lawsuit to continue was a travesty an willfull disregard of the law. I am glad that law has finally prevailed.

State of Missourri: legal CCW has NEVER been the problem

 "How many more innocent people need to die before we revert to more sensible gun laws?"

Hey!! Isn't that the same line that the anti-gunners used as more and more states began adopting CCW laws in the first place 10+ years ago?
Funny because, now, all States in the Union have some form of citizen CCW and the streets have NOT been filled with the blood of legal CCW.

And speaking of of "sensible gun laws" have the anti-gunners not read:

I'll give you the short version/title: 

Report: Feds, states' lapses allow gun sales to prohibited buyers

 

Hmm....the current laws are not working mainly due to conflicting mental health definitions and infrastructure problems.
So, the resolution is MORE gun laws?????? How does that work?

We should address the actual PROBLEMS. 
And please - less rhetoric.

It appears that Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson is attempting to make a name for himself in the Democratic Party by announcing an "assault weapon" ban and ban on "high capacity" magazines.
The proposed legislation will be proposed next year.

It is hard to say what form it will take since it will be modeled after other states "successful" [sic] bans and focus on new sales. Supposedly, existing firearms will be grand-fathered and there will be no provision for "registration." hmm...we have heard that before. 

I guess we will have to wait and how they even define an "assault weapon" and if it is any closer to reality than the recent MA AG's interpretation: "I will know it, when I see it" ban.

SC adds CCW reciprocity with GA and NC

Written by

SOURCE: http://constitution.com/south-carolina-governor-signs-new-concealed-carry-agreement-north-carolina-georgia/

South Carolina has some restrictive CCW laws. To get an out-of-state license you must own property in the state and they will not honor any CCW license for which you are not a resident.
If you live in a state that doesn't have reciprocity you are out of luck.

I am glad to see that they now honor their border states.

It is interesting to note that in this day and age (all 50 states states now have some form of CCW) that the detractors are still saying that CCW laws cost lives.
