B.A.T.F. Approves Drive-Through Gun Sales

Had I not checked this out myself, I would have thought this to be an April Fools joke. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has authorized all FFL licensees to sell firearms through drive-up windows of their stores.

Or in outdoor kiosks.

Or in parking lots.

Life is good!

The ATF’s April 10 letter to FFL licensees issued the new guidlines  in response to the coronavirus disease (WU HAN  virus 武漢病毒).

“In light of the March 13, 2020, declaration of a national emergency concerning the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and the Department of  Homeland Security’s subsequent classification of firearms businesses as essential, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has received questions from industry members  regarding the legality of firearm sales and deliveries exterior to the brick-and-mortar structure at which the firearms business is licensed. Specifically, Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) have requested guidance regarding whether they may verify customer identity and permit the completion of paperwork, including for purposes of the National Instant Criminal Background  Check System; accept payment; and deliver firearms or ammunition to customers (collectively, “the requested activities”) in the following settings:

(1) a drive-up or walk-up window or doorway on the FFL’s property;

(2) a temporary table or booth located in a parking lot on the FFL’s property; and

(3) a nearby space that is not located on the FFL’s property.As is further detailed below, pursuant to the Gun Control Act (GCA) and its ATF Federal Firearms Licensees. ”

According to USA Today . . .

“The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, in new guidance to federally licensed firearm retailers, said Friday that dealers can provide drive-up or walk-up service to reduce health risks posed by the coronavirus.

The guidance was issued, the ATF said, in response industry questions about how business transactions could be restricted following the declaration of a national health emergency.

The move was made at the request of the National Shooting Sports Foundation in an effort to expedite background checks and make the firearms sales process as safe for both gun retailers and customers as possible given COVID-19 武漢病毒  social distancing guidelines.”

As might be expected, the usual whiny libtard  snowflakes are having a meltdown.

This is too much. The Trump administration and continues to outdo itself in taking every possible step to pander to the gun lobby during a national crisis and global pandemic. #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge #COVID19 https://t.co/wJ15a21V22

Kris Brown (@KrisB_Brown) April 11, 2020– First, the Trump administration declared gun stores “essential.” Now, the ATF is promoting them to operate “drive-through” windows. Let’s be clear, gun stores are NOT McDonalds. You shouldn’t be able to buy an AR-15 like you do a burger and fries.

Ain’t it sweet, the gubbermint is letting us have permission to buy guns. Well at least they haven’t outlawed those yet in the “land of the free”.

“You shouldn’t be able to buy an AR-15 like you do a burger and fries.”

After all, A.T.F. should be the name of your local convenience store.

Videos are posted hourly of the idiotic behavior of employees and customers at McDonalds and other fast food places that were historically “family friendly”. No longer trust that the food won’t be tainted so it can be posted for a laugh, or a violent rampage occurs in the line waiting for your order – the videos of these behaviors show the bystanders circled around like hyenas!😕 On the other hand, I would trust Gun stores, the owners of gun stores don’t put up with any crap. the world us getting more dangerous and divided and if good people can protect… Read more »

Yeah, I don’t see any reason to buy fast food. Even if they’re actually behaving in a socially-appropriate manner, you still have the possibility of folks coming to work sick and spreading it to you so they can earn their $15/hr wage to pay the daycare on their 8 kids while they work.

“Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms” sounds like the name of a local biker bar.

Guns won’t be “outlawed” until the Feds are able to TAKE them from us.
