Federal Gun Registration In North Carolina?

Just got back from my favorite “Fun” store. They had their ATF inspection last week. Notable in that the two ATF compliance tax agents were female. One black and one white. What is notable about that? It seems to me as if they hired a bunch of anti-gun non shooting sports types to work for them. Also notable is that they mentioned that North Carolina has been “given” 20 additional compliance teams. Also noteworthy (especially) is the NEW additional part of the inspection.

The black tax inspector spent the entire time photographing every single 4473. She even photographed all of the deferred or declined 4473s. Registration is here in North Carolina. If you own any firearms that you bought in a gun store on a 4473, you had better start trading them around. Fortunately I do not. Now I shall have to see if this was done at work since we had ours last month. Did not occur to me to inquire as that is not my department. (m21308)

We heard about this in Alaska, wherein attention was brought to bear by contacting their Senators.  Has it been happening elsewhere?  I thought this was a direct violation of a couple of federal firearms statutes?  (And the race and gender of the agents is of no concern to me! – Guffaw)

Re:  the ‘anti-gun non shooting sports’ types, I was lead to believe one couldn’t be a gun rights advocate, sport shooter, hunter or firearms collector and work for the ATF, as that was considered a conflict of interest!

Has this changed?

Funny, one can own and drive cars and work for the DMV…

  1. IIRC it is against the law for the ATF to copy 4473’s.Photos would be considered copying. I had a agent show up wanting to see a couple of my 4473’s, He took a few notes and left, which was fine with me. Usually they call me and I call them back with the info they need. They never tell me why they need it. Too bad, could be some pretty juicy gossip. I did go through one audit. The agent was nice enough except for the time she spent chewing my ass. But then, a good ass chewing beats having your FFL revoked. She wasn’t hard on the eyes either.

  2. The illegal actions of agents making photocopies of 4473s here in Anchorage is still a sore point with many.
