  1. Non factual internet "news items" like this piece of work published by Justin Koski at Western Journalism do nothing to further the education of non firearms folks on existing federal firearms laws. Crap like this just adds fuel to the fire. Those with twitter accounts will find his info so, feel free to let Mr. Koski know your thoughts.

  3. Red Flag Customer Questions (dealer input please)

    I received (off line) FFL dealer input and all give the same advice. For all of you non dealers who gave input here, I thought it would be helpful to let you know a couple of things. FFLs report to ATF field agents not local law enforcement agencies. In this case the local LE has no authority to investigate since it could be a possible NFA violation, which falls under the jurisdiction of ATF Criminal Enforcement. Additionally, ATF field agents' responsibilities are mostly field operations such as FFL compliance inspections and new dealer interviews. ATF field offices have special agents who are Criminal Enforcement and those are the folks who would conduct investigations in cases like this, if reported. As far as profiling, my policy is as follows: "Our firearms are available for purchase by eligible US citizens who can read, speak and comprehend the English Language. All other folks can buy elsewhere." We FFLs are permitted to transfer firearms to nonimmigrant aliens admitted to legally hunt, foreign diplomats, officials and LE, and permanent resident aliens (green card holders) Fortunately, we can also decline to sell and transfer firearms to anyone for no reason given whatsoever. So, there's no opportunity for pulling any "profiling card" If you order a rifle from us, you'll have to have a live telephonic discussion about it first. We are not interested in shipping out as many rifles as we can to anyone clicking a box on a web site. I had a person who could not comprehend simple instructions which were emailed to them concerning current lead times, tell me recently, "That's ridiculous. What if S&W had a sales policy like that?" I told him that if he bought a rifle from S&W, he wouldn't be buying it from us now would he… It's my company and that's the way I have chosen to operate it.
  4. While answering questions about the function and necessity of an AR15 front gas block by a customer over the phone, he got very agitated and defensive accusing me of not wanting to sell him an AR15 due to him having an accent. All I had told him was that if he didn't know what the A2 style FGB/front sight was for, then perhaps he should take some time to educate himself (google it) and then call us back. He later gathered his composure, apologized and said he'd check that out along with some of the other firearms available on our web site and get back with us. After he had obviously digested the product information on our site, he emailed me the following question about our 7.62 x 39 AR15. Would it be as easy to make this gun automatic as it is an AK47? This guy doesn't know what a front gas block is for on an AR15 yet obviously knows that it is easy to convert an AK? And obviously has expressed the interest in / information on converting an AR15 from me, a licensed dealer. I am thinking that he should be reported to the ATF Criminal Investigative Branch. What say you Licensed Firearms Dealers? We do have responsibilities when it comes to incidents like this, I'd like to get some of our fellow FFL's input.
