Next Webinar: California Department of Justice FFL Inspection Preparation
Join us on Monday, May 24, 2021, at 1 p.m. EST for the fourth of 12 free live webinars, “California Department of Justice FFL Inspection Preparation.” FFLs across the United States deal with a litany of federal, state, and local regulations, and must remain compliant with these rules to maintain the licenses needed to conduct business and to do their part to help keep our communities safe. None might know this better than the FFLs in California. Faced with the most complex web of regulations known, California FFLs have to be on top of their game to remain compliant and we are here to help. Not a CA FFL? Understanding the challenges that California FFLs face can help you be better prepared for what may come in your state. During this training, NSSFs CA DOJ compliance experts will help CA FFLs understand what licenses and reporting are required in California and cover what to expect and how to prepare for an eventual CA DOJ inspection.

Webinars You May Have Missed
Webinar 1: What to Expect During an ATF Inspection and How to Be Prepared
The ATF may arrive at your business any day to inspect your compliance with various industry-specific regulations. While the ATF is here to work with our industry, and not against it, there are several things they will be looking for to ensure you are operating within the law. Mistakes can be costly and interrupt the flow of business, but with some training and attention to detail, you can pass your next ATF inspection with flying colors! Retired ATF staffers turned NSSF compliance consultants Wally Nelson and Harry McCabe present tips that help you better understand what to expect and how to prepare for your eventual ATF inspection.
Webinar 2: Straw Purchase Awareness Training for your FFL Team
For over 20 years the NSSF and ATF have partnered to bring awareness to the critical topic of Straw Purchases via the Don’t Lie for the Other GuyTM straw purchase awareness program. This program provides scenario-based training and point of purchase materials that explain some warning signs of a straw purchase, how to deal with an attempted straw purchase, and how policing for straw purchases will help protect your business, staff, customers, and community. This training will also help FFLs better educate the public about the significant consequences that can result from lying on the ATF Form 4473 to purchase a gun for someone who is not legally able to own one. This webinar will be presented by former career ATF investigator Judy Bender and firearm compliance and security expert and founder of PCI Services, John Clark.
Webinar 3: Form 4473 and Acquisition/Disposition Compliance
All FFLs use them, so let’s discuss the Form 4473 and Acquisition & Disposition Records. It’s been 6 months since the industry has started working with the latest version of Form 4473, so what has changed? In this training NSSF’s expert compliance consultants Bill Napier and Wally Nelson will review the latest updates to Form 4473, share what they are seeing in the field, and review the most common errors being discovered by ATF and industry on the Form 4473 and A&D records, and how to avoid them.
