Gun dealers hardly want to arm normal citizens these days...
Really. Gun dealers hardly want to wait on customers that come in the store.
The Violence Policy Center recommends the following actions:
! All federally licensed firearms dealers should be required to operate from
a storefront business, not a residence. Licenses should be limited to
businesses devoted primarily to the sale of firearms. Gun shops should
be conspicuously identified to the public as such. This will reduce the
number of dealers ATF must monitor.
! ATF should have the authority to suspend a dealer’s license or assess
civil penalties—in addition to revocation authority—when a dealer
violates the law.
ATF’s ability to inspect a licensee’s premises to ensure compliance with
recordkeeping and other requirements should be expanded from once a
year to at least four times per year.
! The loophole which allows dealers to divert firearms from their business
inventory to their “personal collections” and then sell those guns without
performing the Brady background check should be eliminated.
! Dealers should be required to safely and securely store their inventories
! Local law enforcement agencies and regulators should closely monitor
dealers in their areas to ensure that they are in compliance with all
applicable local laws including business licensing, zoning, and any
pertinent local firearm restrictions such as bans on assault weapons and
! Congress should rescind the provision included in ATF’s fiscal year 2005
and 2006 spending authorizations prohibiting the agency from denying
licenses to persons who do not meet the “engaged in the business” test
for business activity.
