Obtaining a Home-based FFL

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

A federal firearm license (FFL) is the requirement needed for individuals to buy and sell firearms; the federal government issues this license. Though many people who are interested in obtaining an FFL would love to own and operate their own firearm shops, some do not have access to the capital or location to run a retail, brick and mortar firearm business. Truthfully, many who apply for an FFL are more interested in the benefits of the license rather than starting a business from scratch. Though the federal government requires some sort of justification for an FFL (helping others …

Leaked ATF White Paper

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

On January 20th 2017, someone leaked a white paper intended for Ronald Turk, the COO of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosive (ATF). With most leaks in recent memory stemming from some negative activity on the part of the government, this leak is a breath of fresh air. The white paper in question is titled, “Federal Firearms Regulations: Options to Reduce or Modify Firearms Regulations.” Quite a change in tone from the previous eight years.

 

This white paper details proposals to change regulations for many different aspects relating to the firearm industry. As has been …

Blueprint to Building an AR-15

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

AR15 is one of the most popular models of rifle on the market. According to Fox Business, over 30,000 AR’s were sold during a seven-day period at a single store. Though the reason for a purchase can range from a simple competition firearm to trying to beat gun bans, it is obviously that it is one of the most popular models. Due to its aesthetic design and its similarity to the military’s M4, those who are not familiar with firearms have allowed ignorance and fear to dictate their political agenda.

This has resulted in bans like …

President-elect Donald J. Trump signifies a massive shift in American culture. For the last decade, media outlets have been blatant with their bias towards left-leaning topics, while the hard workers have been marginalized and treated like deplorables, simply because we hold different values than their so-called, “tolerant,” way of life. One of the keys battlefields of this debate involves gun violence.

I know that this is going to sound like nails on a chalkboard, but the left isn’t trying to be evil, honestly they are just naive. They believe by …

Whether you’re a combat hardened veteran or an anti-gun nut, due to popular media, “Glock,” has become a household word.

(Note, not all models are available for civilian purchase, in order to get full access to the products and have an order shipped to your house from an online vendor you will need an FFL …

Under the Gun Isn’t the Honest Documentary It Claims to Be

Released in May 2016, the Katie Couric-backed documentary Under the Gun claimed to be a neutral exploration of gun violence and gun safety in the U.S. However, the film was plagued with criticism from its first showing. Journalists proved that the documentary had deliberately been edited to make pro-gun advocates seem stupid. In an even bigger controversy, the film’s director actually admitted to breaking federal gun laws during filming.

What Happened Behind the Scenes of Under the Gun?

While filming Under the Gun, a producer who lived in Colorado traveled to Arizona …

Why Gun-Free Zones Don’t Make Sense and What We Should Do About It

Many communities, facilities and businesses in the U.S. have established “gun-free zones” where no one is allowed to carry or possess firearms. The supporters of such zones claim that they cut down on violence and help protect people. In the wake of recent mass shootings and tragedies, though, it’s time to question whether or not gun-free zones keep us safe.

Do Gun-Free Zones Really Make Sense?

Gun-free zones were originally created by well-intentioned people who thought that removing guns from such areas would help keep citizens safe. However, these well-meaning …

Hawaii Becomes First State to Track Law-Abiding Gun Owners

Hawaii has taken action to become the first state to list all licensed gun owners in a federal database. Passed on June 23 by a Democrat-controlled legislature with support from Honolulu Police Department Maj. Richard Robinson, Hawaii Senate Bill 2954 takes effect immediately.

With Democrat Governor David Ige’s signature, Hawaii is the first state to utilize the FBI’s Rap Back Next Generation Identification (NGI) system to track the activities of firearm owners. The new law allows Hawaii police departments to evaluate and monitor whether an individual should have the right to possess firearms, …

Can We Predict Gun Politics?

Protecting Our Rights in the Election Year

Should politics play a part in gun ownership rights? Whether we like it or not, firearm legislation is a hot issue in American politics and media. Considering the attempted legislative restrictions on gun rights in the past few years alone, we all feel the uncertainty that lies ahead, especially in a presidential election year.

Ironically, for all the gun restrictions proposed during the Obama administration, he did not emphasize gun control during his campaign. This year, presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is making a point of being tough on gun issues, and she’s already gone …
