18 U.S.C. 922(t)(1)(C): IDENTIFICATION OF TRANSFEREE 27 CFR 178.124: FIREARMS TRANSACTION RECORD Licensees may accept a combination of valid government-issued documents to satisfy the identification document requirements of the Brady Act. The required valid government-issued photo identification document bearing the name, photograph, and date of birth of the transferee may be supplemented by another valid, government-issued document showing the transferee's residence address. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty is a resident of the State in which his or her permanent duty station is located, and may satisfy the identification document requirement by presenting his or her military identification card along with official orders showing that his or her permanent duty station is within the State where the licensed premises are located. ATF Ruling 79-7 is superseded. ATF Rul. 2001-5 The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has received numerous inquiries from Federal firearms licensees (FFLs) regarding the acceptance of identification documents that do not show the purchaser's current residence address. FFLs have asked whether they may accept other documents, such as tax bills or vehicle registration documents, to establish the current residence address of the purchaser. It has been ATF's longstanding position that licensees may accept a combination of documents to establish the identity of a firearm purchaser. ATF Rul. 79-7, ATFQB 79-1, 26, interpreted a licensee's obligation to obtain satisfactory identification from a purchaser in the manner customarily used in commercial transactions, pursuant to the existing regulations under the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA). The ruling held that satisfactory identification of a firearms purchaser must include the purchaser's name, age or date of birth, place of residence, and signature. The ruling also held that while a particular document may not be sufficient to meet the statutory requirement for identifying the purchaser, any combination of documents that together disclosed the required information would be acceptable. ATF Rul. 79-7 has been superseded by an amendment to the GCA. The Brady H
Ive been out of the loop lately but got a big surprise today. Went to Runnings in Jamestown NY to buy a handgun. After I picked the gun I wanted and after handing the clerk my drivers license and NYS pistol permit, she asked of I had anything with my middle name spelled out. I said no but had...
* * If you plan on purchasing a firearm, make sure your ID has your current address and FULL MIDDLE NAME. If it does not, bring government-issued documentation that does include your full legal name, per new ATF regulations. * * https://www.thefiringpinny.com/
How is this a hoop? Your ID should have always have your middle name on it. Every legal document I have ever signed has always required me to sign my full legal name. In the car business if your NYS required car insurance card did not have your full middle it was not considered valid. Been that way for years. I can’t tell you how many customers insurance companies I had to call back and get them to redo the insurance cards because it did not have their legal name on it.
All four in my family have our full names on our DL's. It's required on the application. Same on my old GA license and Concealed Carry card. This isn't a hoop. In my opinion every single citizen who wants to VOTE should have a legal ID with their full name on it. None of this BS where you can bring a couple of bills that might have a first and last name spelled out.
Why would not be there in the first place?
your legal name should always be the same everywhere.
This is very important when traveling too as many countries have 2 parts last name made from father and mothers maiden name.
So in any legal documents one should print all legal names that way there is no opportunity for anyone to create any conflict based
First off... If it's a Govt issued ID, whatever name in it's is adequate enough. Period!
Pistol license(s) here and in other States have middle initials and that's all that's legally required! And for identity theft consideration, all that should be needed...
I agree, that this is just another bullshit hoop to jump through implemented by the anti-gun Progressivism of the current administration...
All just big bullshit!
And oh, no need for ANY ID to exercise that silly RIGHT, the one to VOTE! So ANY Identity requirements then to exercise other rights become arbitrary and capricious, burdensome!
Watch and wait for the ridiculous burdens they will place on carry permits and more once the SCOTUS rules that possession outside a home is a Right ... Oh boy! Wait for the Exorcist head spinning for sure!
