If the FLA ID is issued after 22-Jan-2018, it isn't your problem, it is the problem of the state for the background check.

It is all about agendas and slowly leading the sheeple down the path without a clue of what it will result in.

I think we'll probably follow a path similar to Ace's idea even after DOJ "confirms" FLA's are OK.

We'll probably require some other form of identification on top of the FLA as a policy. It beats rejecting the transaction and mandating the REAL ID.

For one thing, I wish to avoid giving any illegals the idea that they can purchase anything from the shop. Another is to avoid any other governmental scrutiny down the line whether DOJ or ATF.

The DOJ webinar the Field Rep said you can take if issued after 1/22/18. He also said they have drafted a memo that he has seen and its with the Lawyers, but no ETA on when it will be released.

I can't feel very confident about taking the FLA pre-bulletin if it's taking their own lawyers forever to determine if it's legal or not...

They don't want to admit their mistake. It isn't about being legal or not. If people were denied being able to buy a firearm due to their mistake, they have a problem if they admit it.

While catching up on this thread I decided to call the DROS hotline and ask the question yet again. The nice young lady gave me an answer that was significantly different than the previous standard, "refer to the 2016 bulletin". She basically said pre 1/22/18 FLA is no go and post 1/22/18 is "at the discretion of the dealer". When asked if a bulletin was coming, she basically had the tone of "I hope so". I think we are moving in the right direction, but I'm still hesitant until I see something in writing. Maybe next week I will call again and record the call, of course letting them know I am doing so, and see if they repeat the "dealer discretion" thing. If you as an FFL has changed your policy in regards to accepting post 1/22/18 FLA licenses, please UPDATE your poll response.

Cheers!

typical government employees. when you call/talk to different people, you will get different answers unless you have a chance to ask supervisor.

To be fair this is typical of most any place you call depending on the training that level of employee has received. E.g., I was trying to order a Big Mac and Filet-O-Fish for $5 (2 for 5 deal) at McDs and the cashier said "they have to be the same" ... I asked "Are you sure?" ... she punched it in and was like "Oh, I guess not.."...

Now the folks that answer the DES line I would argue are a bit brighter than who was helping me, but they are probably in the same location in the org totem pole.

I called again today, to shutup a know it all, and I got "pre 1/22/18 FLA is no go and post 1/22/18 is no go." She was obviously reading from a script, paused, and said WTF, why would there be a division if it is the same answer.

I clarified "so yes or no?" She gave a solid "no!"

Why would anyone call the DES number and not their DOJ rep?

The reps are giving the green light on FLA’s

Did you take the basic dealer webinar. On the hand out PDF on page 4 they show a FLA license and wrote:
Quote:
Check Issue Date on license - Before 1/22/18 NOT valid for DROS purposes
That and a email from my rep are my fall backs.

I didn't take the most recent one. Is the handout available in DES? If not, can you post a link to it?

Agreed. Based on the new dealer handouts plus the email from the rep assigned to us we have updated our FLA policy today. We are now accepting with additional proof of citizenship. E.g. passport, green card, Visa etc...

Ugh, back to this thread again that just wont go away. But I have to chime in on this one. If you start your DROS with your original ID (normal, not FLA non REAL ID) then decide to go get a Real ID, DO NOT go during your 10 day wait and come back here to pick up your gun with either a paper printout "Driver License" or hole punched ID.

Thanks, my PSA is done for the day.

So many variations of this over the past few months.

It's the FFL's fault, right?

So, here's a new twist on things. I just had a kid in my shop that wanted to buy a 10/22. I had to refuse the sale when he revealed that he was a DACA kid with a work authorization card. Here's the kicker though. He had a REAL ID! WTF?!? I thought that was the whole idea of the AB60 licenses in the first place?!?

DACA folks can get temporary REAL ID's because DACA exempted them from deportation.

https://www.nwpb.org/2018/01/03/real...ca-recipients/

Quote:
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s website, immigrants with temporary protected status like DACA can update their driver’s licenses to become REAL ID compliant.

If he didn't say so, you would've never known. That's the BS behind all of this.

Interesting article.

The first thing that tipped me off is that his expiration was not his birthday. That always means they are non-citizen on an I94 or green card. In this case he was DACA.

Yes, that would be the determining factor. I suppose we'd have to train our staff to look for that and follow-up with questions re: their status. Do you recall if the ID stated "Temporary" anywhere?

https://www.dhs.gov/real-id-faq-implementation

Quote:
Q. How should a "Temporary" or "Limited Term" license be marked?

A. Temporary and limited term cards need to clearly indicate both on its face and in the machine readable zone that they are temporary and include the expiration date.

I don't recall anything stating temporary on it. I just notice the different expiration date whenever I see it. I'm pretty sure this always indicates a person that has some sort of alien status.
