Contemporary Diversion Methods
Contemporary diversion methods are current practices for moving firearms or firearm components to the domestic illicit firearm market. They include:
- theft from licensed individuals and firearm dealers, including suspected staged theft
- the domestic manufacture and assembly of firearms
- the illegal importation of undeclared firearms and firearm parts, and
- failure to record or reconcile the interstate movement of firearms.
