Didn't realize that used hanguns are subject to the roster without one of the exemptions.
In the eyes of DOJ this is no trivial matter, and we were told that the gun would be collected from the buyer. Not good....
Had we done this on purpose, it's grounds for losing a license.
We were also told by DOJ that they are following SSEs VERY CLOSELY. He did not really comment on the legality, but indicated that those FFLs that do them, had better not get caught UNDOING them.
I'd like more information, but it pretty much scared us off trying to do any SSEs.
Your DOJ inspector sounds typical...SSE is allowed as described in the sticky as of today. They don't like it so they float the FUD and see if they can buffalo FFLs into not doing them.
That being said, based on the story above it sounds like your boss needs to figure out how to do the basics before moving on to services like SSE handgun transfers.
