Top 10 Reasons the ATF Revokes FFLs
By Kristy Bauer Carney
Under the Biden Administration’s new ‘Zero Tolerance Policy’, the ATF has been directed to crack down on “rogue” gun dealers, meaning even a single violation could result in an FFL being revoked. With stricter regulations and increased pressure from the ATF, it's more critical than ever that FFLs are FULLY compliant to ensure protection from license revocation.
We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 ATF violations the are leading to license revocation under the new policy. As you look through this list, think through your own processes.
- Are you still handling firearm transactions manually? Manual processes take longer and have an exponentially higher risk of error.
- Are your processes digital but you’re bouncing between multiple systems to complete forms, process transactions and update your A&D book? This still leaves you exposed to human or procedural errors that could cost you your license.
- How much time are you wasting, and you still have a chance of error?
The only way to completely mitigate risk is with a fully integrated and fully compliant digital system. Read on to see the common violations that are now cause for revocation and how you can avoid them with Bravo Point of Sale and E4473.
