Default PPT Gun Lock

Sorry to did this up again but I did read through this previous post and did not come away with a exact consensus.

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...highlight=lock

I want to know as some stated in the thread that if an approved lock is provided when the PPT is initiated, with out a receipt, will that fly?

Also, how do built in locks apply to the law?

Thanks

Legally, if the seller provides the lock, it is a part of the gun sale and it is GTG.

Whether or not that will fly with the FFL is the issue.
There have been reports of FFLs that make customers buy a new lock when they buy a new gun that has a manufacturer-provided lock.

That's what I took from the other thread as well. So the internal lock satisfies it, or not?

Either way I sent an email to Turners to see what their EXACT policy is. I'll post the reply if I get one.

I don't believe the internal lock qualifies.
I was referring to the cable/padlock provided by Ruger, Springfield, etc....

depends on the lock.

That S&W lock mentioned above might not be on the FSD roster, but the Springfield ILS internal lock is on the roster. As such, no additional lock shoudl be required. But that didn't recently stop a SoCal shop from requiring that a PPT buyer buy an new lock

I'll be dipped. There is one in there.

This device will properly function with firearms that meet the following description:

I don't see how you found that. The search on the DOJ site is terrible.

I don't think I would have if Jack hadn't mentioned the manufacturer specifically.

If you listen to what the BATF says, although they have not officially printed it, the FFL is supposed to provide the lock, not the buyer nor the seller. I suspect that is why some FFLs demand that people buy a lock. The Federal law is poorly worded, to say the least. It could also be that they want to make more profit as well.

Does the law really say the dealer must be the provider?

Quote:
18 U.S.C. 922(z), regarding secure gun storage or safety device, states in part that it shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer to sell, deliver, or transfer any handgun to any person other than any person licensed, unless the transferee is provided with a secure gun storage or safety device for that handgun at the time of the firearm sales transaction.

There is more to the law that just what you quoted. One sentence mentions that the FFL must provide, but the sentence you highlighted does not say who and is unclear. If the transferee has a safe, that does mean that "the transferee is provided"?

Remember, I did not say what the law says, just what the BATF says, specifically the BATF lawyer.

I do not think that the law requires the FFL to provide the lock OR the safe, but ...

Remember, it is not what the law says, but how it is enforced. Remember the 2nd Amendment.

I guess I'm too dense for that one.


Which sentence in the law says the dealer must provide it. I must have missed it.

You need to be more specific. Who is providing the lock? If the lock is in the case with the gun when it comes in the door, then I would accept it as the seller provided it no different than if it was a factory new Glock with a lock provided.

If the buyer brings it in, I would not accept it for that transaction without a dated receipt.

I would however take the DAC CL551 lock from the buyer and throw it in a box of locks. I would then take out a Regal RC15 (or whatever the number is) and then provide the customer with that lock for the transaction.

Nothing prohibits me from giving people locks. Nothing prohibits customers from giving me locks out the kindness of their own hearts. In fact nothing is prohibited at all except for delivering a firearm without an approved FSD or signed affidavit (Federally, all handguns must now come with a lock).

Remember, (e) only gives you an exemption to (a).

As far as internal locks, if they are on the list, they apply. Now would they apply to a handgun for the federal law? That is a tough one. I would consider the internal lock a safety device.

Better yet, if the handgun has a safety device like a 1911 thumb safety or a Glock Safe Action Pistol trigger safety, that would seem to work too!!!

It appears it would.

Quote:
(z) SECURE GUN STORAGE OR
SAFTEY DEVICE—
(1) IN GENERAL- Except as
Provided under paragraph (2), it shall
be unlawful for any licensed
importer, licensed manufacturer, or
licensed dealer to sell, deliver, or
transfer any handgun to any person
other than any person licensed under
this chapter, unless the transferee is
provided with a
secure gun storage
or safety device (as defined in sec
tion 921(a)(34))
for than handgun.


Quote:
921(a)(34) The term "secure gun storage
or safety device" means—
(A) a device that, when installed
on a firearm, is designed to prevent
the firearm from being operated without
first deactivating the device;
(B) a device incorporated into the
design of the firearm that is designed
to prevent the operation of the firearm
by anyone not having access to
the device; or

(C) a safe, gun safe, gun case,
lock box, or other device that is designed
to be or can be used to store
a firearm and that is designed to be
unlocked only by means of a key, a
combination, or other similar means.
sure looks like an internal lock would comply with 921(a)(34)(B) but I don't think that "Better yet, if the handgun has a safety device like a 1911 thumb safety or a Glock Safe Action Pistol trigger safety, that would seem to work too!!! " would be acceptable

Talk to the BATF attorney, not me. I don't think that the dealer has to provide it, but I am not the one who enforces it. The BATF has not done what is required either, but I can't do anything about that either.

http://www.atf.gov/press/releases/20...ety-locks.html

Page 2:

http://www.atf.gov/publications/news...er-2006-03.pdf

Go look at CA PC 12020 and see what the law says and then look to see how it is enforced. That is just another example or many.

have the regulations ever been approved and published?

Thanks guys for all the info. I did just find out from the seller that a "factory" lock is included in the deal I'm doing this weekend.

Again, thanks for the lesson.

I like how even though the regulations that implement the statute have not been approved and published, you are still required to comply with the statute.

So can you bring in your own lock from a store? Or is the receipt sufficient that you bought a gun lock in the last 30 days? I have a ton of locks a safe and I dont need anymore gun locks. Especially not for 15$ from the gun store for a lock that costs 1.50$

If you bring in the lock and you want to be exempt from (a), then you need a receipt showing your purchased it within 30 days so you can meet (e).

In my store, if you brought in a gun lock and gave it to me. I would make sure your handgun came with a different model gun lock.

I call it the trade in program.

Many dealers probably won't do that because they actually sell gun locks. I haven't sold one in probably three years.
