Do you want to know how to get your Minnesota FFL? Are you overwhelmed by the heavy handed Federal regulations and confusing laws and rules about being an FFL in Minnesota? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone!
Minnesota is a wonderful place to be an FFL! While the population is somewhat small, gun ownership is very popular and common. Several major population centers help provide a steady market in guns too. With world class hunting opportunities and enormous amounts of flat, open land to shoot in, Minnesota is a hunter’s and sport shooter’s paradise.
Some NFA items are restricted in Minnesota. Only machine guns and short-barrel shotguns that are on the ATF’s Curio and Relics list are allowed. But the great news is that popular best selling NFA items like silencers, AOW’s and short barrel rifles are legal to own in Minnesota.
Ready to get your Minnesota FFL? Great! Let’s look at the simple steps you need to get it.
The ATF has pretty basic requirements to get an FFL. So basic in fact, we’ll only glance at them, because the real problem lies with Minnesota licenses and rules.
To get an FFL, the ATF requires that you basically be a law-abiding US citizen or permanent resident over 21 years of age who can legally own a firearm. Pretty simple stuff really. The paperwork is annoying, and you have to demonstrate you are planning to operate a business, but that’s not too hard.
What is hard for would-be Minnesota FFL holders is that the ATF also requires that you have all appropriate state and local licenses before you can be in business. And that is where the “fun” starts…
Minnesota makes it very easy to get an FFL, because there are no state specific firearms licenses. While some states require a redundant sort of “state issued FFL” Minnesota only requires you to get regular business licenses.
While there are no state-level gun dealer licenses, you must still be successfully licensed with the state and the local area you are doing business in. You also have to operate in a correctly zoned area that matches the type of business you are doing.
Minnesota has a lot of small towns and rural areas with less restrictive zoning regulations than developed population centers. That means if you want to get a home based FFL in Minnesota, it should be pretty easy.
As you can see, you cannot get your Minnesota FFL until you are licensed to do business at the location you choose. Both the ATF and the State of Minnesota require that you be properly licensed locally before you can do business.
It is impossible to describe all the possible local problems getting a business license in Minnesota for your FFL. Typically your biggest issue will be zoning. If you are in town that’s usually pretty cut and dried. If you are trying to set up a home based FFL, you need to make sure that you can get a zoning variance for the kind of business you are trying to operate.
To get your Minnesota FFL, you’ll likely mostly have to satisfy the ATF that you’ve done your homework. Local business licenses shouldn’t be a problem, but there is always the chance that local offices could try and hold you up.
Truth be told you can probably get your Minnesota FFL with minimal effort. But there is more to running a business than just having paperwork in order. That’s where FFL123 comes in!
