Drive Up Gun Shops Coming to a Place Near You?


This one is sure to break Ralph Northam’s heart. The ATF confirmed that gun shops can provide services on their property even if it is outside of their physical store.

(1) An FFL may carry out the requested activities through a drive-up or walk-up window or doorway where the customer is on the licensee’s property on the exterior of the brick-and- mortar structure at the address listed on the license

This comes an appropriate time at which people are worried about social distancing and that has become somewhat of an excuse to shut down gun shops during this pandemic.

The ATF further clarified that it's not limited to drive ups, either

(2) An FFL may also carry out the requested activities from a temporary table or booth located in a parking lot or other exterior location on the licensee’s property at the address listed on the license, but any such activities must occur in a location where the licensee has the authority to permit ATF’s entry for inspection purposes. Whether the FFL has the authority to permit such entry, and whether a location constitutes the FFL’s property, is likely to be a fact- specific inquiry. An FFL carrying out the requested activities from an exterior table or booth should maintain its inventory and records securely in the interior of the brick-and-mortar structure and ensure that the records of each firearms transaction are stored in the interior.

There are also some restrictions, obviously, such as not being able to conduct services outside of the licensee's property listed on the license (I.e. not green lighting the sale out of your house if you're not listed as an FFL at that location).
