When we last left our dear readers, I was sharing my hopes and dreams when it comes to the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the process that is required to both transfer and make NFA regulated weapons. Aside from scrapping the law in its entirety, it seems that we all have just to hope for a swifter and easier process. Today, the ATF has announced that the EForms system for Form 1 “Making” applications is back online for both entities and individuals, a category not included in past iterations of the system. The announcement seen on the EForm home page also states that the ATF is working hard to restore Form 4 “Transfer” applications to the system.
Currently, there is no way to submit electronic fingerprints into EForms; applicants must print out an email confirmation cover letter and mail in their prints through the USPS.
One small step for short barrels, one giant leap for government bureaucracy. Kidding! We will take all the help we can get.
TFB will keep you posted.
