Are You Experiencing ATF Administrative Action As A Result Of The 'ZERO Tolerance Policy'?

Firearm Industry Partner,

NSSF® has been closely monitoring the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) enforcement of President Joe Biden's announced “ZERO Tolerance Policy,” which is designed to, “target rogue gun dealers.” However, it is our understanding that the total number of FFL revocations has increased dramatically since the ATF recently implemented that policy.

The truth of the matter is that this new policy has forced ATF to proceed with FFL revocations for infractions that at one time warranted only a correction and/or simple ATF citation. In some cases, it has been reported that ATF’s interpretation of this new policy has caused unwarranted revocations. We cannot allow this to proceed unchecked.

NSSF is calling on those engaged in the industry who are experiencing ATF administrative action (warning conference or revocation) to report their experience to NSSF’s Managing Director of Member Services, John McNamara. Retailers, Ranges, Manufacturers and the attorneys representing these firms are asked to help NSSF collect aggregate information which we can use to monitor and report on the effects of the “Zero Tolerance Policy.”

As a reminder, if you have any compliance-related questions, NSSF maintains an expert compliance consulting team which is standing by to assist our members. These consultants have also assisted in the design of compliance and education tools, with the goal of helping you achieve 100% compliance in order for you to pass each ATF inspection with flying colors.
