    That would be great! Im so used to the government adding MORE hoops to jump through, this would be a welcome change.

    They have been talking about this for awhile. Hopefully it will not make the process go even longer, since when you submit your paperwork; you are really starting from scratch.

    I realize you still have to go thru a DOJ / FBI background; but when currently submitting a form by going a local LEO; it has his signature and set of fingerprints to go with it. But if you can't get they to sign, it defeats the purpose.

    Well when the paperwork goes to the ATF you are "starting from scratch" now. There is no change in that. You will still have to submit fingerprints and passport photos for an individual transfer. ATF really does not care about the local LEO sign off.

    All the LEO sign off really says is that there are no local laws that would be broken or that you have some local history.

    If it makes you feel any better Agencies have to go through the same process to get NFA items as we do. Just on a different Form.

    if there is any truth to this, it's still months away. to change the regulation, a
    Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) must be published in the Federal
    Register, including a window period during which comments are submitted
    by the masses. to date, this hasn't been done.
