Industry news Industry Sues ATF To Stop Multiple Sales Reporting I n August, the NSSF filed a lawsuit challenging the legal authority of the ATF to require federally licensed firearms retailers in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas to report multiple sales of rifles. In August, the ATF began requiring dealers to report multiple sales of any semiautomatic rifle larger than .22 caliber and capable of accepting a detachable magazine by the same person within five consecutive business days. NSSF’s lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks an injunction to block ATF from implementing the reporting requirement. ATF sent “demand letters” to firearms retailers in the four states, informing retailers they must begin reporting such sales by Aug. 14. In announcing the lawsuit, NSSF officials pointed out the new requirement opens the door for other demands by the ATF of firearm dealers, by simply sending them a requirement letter. “This is the proverbial ‘slippery slope,’ and our industry is extremely concerned about it,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. The NSSF lawsuit is available for review on DIGITAL Click “Industry,” then “Government Relations.” SI Hot Link Otis Honored For New Technologies tis Technology has received the seventh annual Progressive Manufacturing 100 Award.
