View Full Version : DOJ FUD question

A few people here mentioned the recent FFL meeting with DOJ BOF agents where the DOJ people abbounced that they're just waiting for the change of AG to issue an opinion that BBs are illlegal.

I was told that another thing that was said during this (or maybe some other) meeting was that a firearm (including a longarm) must leave the FFL either with a lock on it, or in a locked container.

While I know that this is BS, I'm trying to determine whether the FUD in question comes from DOJ, or from the person who told me that.

So, please, chime in if you've attended that or some other recent meeting between FFL and DOJ agents.

That's what I was referring to, yes. However, the "requirement" to lock a longarm (either with the stupid lock, or in a locked container) when leaving the gun shop isn't mentioned there.

Sorry, wasn't there. However, he may be talking about forcing the issue on the second half of this and just ignoring the "or":

12071.(a)
(3) No firearm shall be delivered:
(B) Unless unloaded and securely wrapped or
unloaded and in a locked container

What exactly "securely wrapped" is, I'm not certain but customers leave my shop with long guns unloaded and in the factory boxes all the time.
