Federal Court – Gun Dealers Must Notify ATF About Semi Auto Rifle Purchases



” Gun dealers have been required to report the sale of multiple handguns in a short amount of time for some time now, but the rifle requirement is new.

The dealer’s claim holds that the requirement places an excessive burdens on gun dealers and could even be used to create a gun registry.

According to POLITICO,

A unanimous three-judge panel of the court rejected arguments that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives exceeded its authority in issuing the rule, violated Congressional prohibitions against a national gun registry and imposed an unreasonable burden on gun dealers.”
