Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Certain Rifles
Overview of this Information Collection…
(2) Title of the Form/Collection:
Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Certain Rifles…
(4) Affected public who will be required to respond, as well as a brief abstract:
Primary: Business or For-Profit.
The purpose of this information collection is to require Federal firearms licensees (FFLs) to report multiple sales or other dispositions whenever the licensee sells or otherwise disposes of two or more rifles with the following characteristics:
(b) a caliber greater than .22 (including .223/5.56 caliber); and
(c) the ability to accept a detachable magazine, to the same person at one time or during any five consecutive business days.
This requirement will apply only to Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) who are dealers and/or pawnbrokers in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.
(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents:
ATF estimates that 8,479 respondents will be subject to the reporting requirement. However, ATF anticipates fewer than 30% of the potential respondents will be required to report multiple sales of the subset of rifles that is the subject of this collection. This estimate is based upon the fact that, during fiscal year 2010, 2,509 FFLs in the affected states submitted reports of multiple sales of hand guns. ATF estimates that a similar number of FFLs are likely to submit reports of multiple sales of the subject rifles.
(6) The estimated average burden per respondent: In fiscal year 2010, 36,148 reports of multiple sales of hand guns sales were submitted by FFLs in the four southwest border states. Because the specified rifles ((a) semi-automatic; (b) a caliber greater than .22 (including .223/5.56 caliber); and (c) the ability to accept a detachable magazine) are a subset of the long gun category, we estimate we will receive 18,074 reports of multiple sale of the specified rifles from FFLs located in the four southwest border states. We estimate that each report will take 12 minutes to complete. If we receive 18,074 reports from 2,509 licensees the total burden is 3,615 hours. The estimated annual burden per respondent is 1 hour and 26 minutes.
