Presidential Executive Orders

As far as Gun Shows go nothing has changed. 

On the ATF website the top of the home page is a link to the new publication, "Do I Need A License To Buy and Sell Firearms?" On Page 2 it says, "The guidance set forth herein has no regulatory effect..." This is because it must go through our Congress. Plus, everything else reads the same.  It seems scary and onerous, because it is and it is what we have been dealing with along. Bottom line, if you are in the business of selling firearms you need to get a license just like before.  If you are selling your personal collection or are a collector improving your collection you can make an occasional sale and / or purchase. All persons who transfer firearms, regardless of whether they are engaged in the business of dealing in firearms, must ensure that any transfers are in compliance with federal, state and local laws. 

Do I Need A License To Buy and Sell Firearms?
ATF Publication 5310.2
Published January 2016

NFA Trusts now require background checks for members of the trust.  That is a good thing.  Chief Law Enforcement Office (CLEO) no longer needs to authorize NFA transfers, etc. just must be notified.  That is great!

Lost Firearms in Transit - Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) must report it to ATF the lost or stolen firearm if FFL and if he has knowledge and within 48 hours once FFL has knowledge.

Mental Health - The $500 million for the mental health budget in 2017 fiscal year is GREAT!  We have been saying that we have a Mental Health Crisis in this country for decades. It must go through Congress and it needs to be DONE RIGHT! 

We need to care for those that cannot care for themselves and while doing so we can do mental health threat assessments to assess whether the person is a threat to himself or others.  We hope this is balanced approach and not some effort just to remove firearms.  People who lose loved ones or go through dramatic life events such as divorce and seek help for depression should not be punished and become fearful of seeking help.  That will have the reverse of the desired effect.  Unnecessary targeting of our military service people is strongly offensive.  We need people that will serve.

NICS - National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)
Upgrading this system and hiring more people is great but they also need to focus on and increase budgets for the Point of Contact (POC) States that initialize that background check.  These states go down far more often and for hours.  Then FFL's lose many sales and some purchasers, not wishing to wait 3 hours like this last Saturday afternoon in Chantilly, VA, go through private sales, therefore purchases that initially would have gone through a background check do not.

This is a brief summarization that only touches on the changes.

How Australias Gun Ban on all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns worked out in 1996/1997

It's an attention-grabbing claim, but the general listener could get the impression that those numbers are solely victims of mass shootings or murders. They're not.


“Gun deaths also vary dramatically by type. The vast majority (77 percent) of white gun deaths are suicides; less than one in five (19 percent) is a homicide. These figures are nearly opposite in the black population, where only 14 percent of gun deaths are suicides but 82 percent are homicides.”  The Brookings Institute


Hot Air reports that when all is said and done, according to the 2011 stats, 850 homicides were caused by a person with a legally purchased and licensed gun compared to, for example, “700 beaten to death by somebody with their bare hands” that same year. That's not quite “33,000.”

Hillary Clinton Supports

Australia-style Gun Confiscation

The shutdown of a gun ring supplied with more than 200 guns bought in Virginia for resale in New York City has reinvigorated calls for a state law that limits handgun purchases to one per month.


Proponents wanting to restore a so-called “one-gun-a-month” measure in Virginia say it would stifle the flow of guns from the state to crime scenes elsewhere, and that a law repealed in 2012 after nearly 20 years on the books did just that.

of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and to always honor their families-the mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, sisters,

"The dedication of the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument to those who gave one or more of their loved ones is long overdue, and it says to all those who suffered that loss, We have not forgotten. We will remember."
