• The number of firearms lost or stolen from FFLs is approximately 0.15
percent of the total number of firearms manufactured and imported into
the U.S. in a given year.
• Federal law requires all FFLs to notify ATF and local police within 48
hours of learning a firearm has been lost or stolen.
• NSSF encourages FFLs to conduct inventories and matches ATF reward
offers when firearms are stolen from licensed retailers.
• Proposed ATF regulations mandating physical inventories are
unnecessary and unauthorized by law.
