I was always under the impression they never left the gun store unless the ATF had a reason to confiscate them. If they ATF does have them I'd have to say it would be incumbent upon what the purpose was behind their confiscation.
when a gun store goes out of business, they turn the records over to the ATF. I'm wondering if they are public records once that has happened
Call and ask.
As far as I know the atf has some amount of trouble even locating what they have for traces.
These forms are given the same status as a tax return under the Privacy Act of 1974 and cannot be disclosed to private parties or government officials without a proper warrant.
cool, thanks. Didn't even think that wiki would have that.
I wonder what the ATF's reason was when they came to the two local stores with a laptop and copied every single 4473 over the course of three days?
For that, they can't copy them. They can only look at them
...and manually enter them into a database. Plenty of court records that can't be copied that are manually harvested that way year in and year out.
I despise the ATF...
If I ever have to register a lower with them, I might put in the descriptive remarks section:
"Agents That Fly can
Suckle and kiss my gonads
I want full-auto."
