Congress To Consider “Protecting The Second Amendment Act”

posted on April 10, 2017

A U.S. Congressman from West Virginia has introduced HR 1976, the “Protecting the Second Amendment Act,” which is being supported by the National Rifle Association.

The measure states that no federal firearm licensee (FFL) could be subject to any generalized or ongoing reporting requirement based on the FFL’s geographic location or on sales of multiple long guns. It would amend the Gun Control Act (GCA) to permanently prohibit executive actions like the Southwestern Border states’ rifle sales reporting initiative launched under the Obama administration.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2011 directed thousands of FFLs in southwestern border states to file ongoing reports to the government of any sales of two or more rifles of certain types to the same customer within a five-day period. This was the third broad-based reporting requirement ATF imposed under Obama.
