I would like some clarification concerning employee eligibility/background checks. There seems to be a lot of gray area in the regulations specifically, Section 478.32, concerning whom we can hire. We always do background checks (always post-offer, in accordance with the law) and always operate with a great deal of caution, but we dont want to be overly exclusive of people with pasts. Clarification of specific rulings, examples and such from the ATF would be helpful.
I have a firearm hanging on the wall of my office, which adjoins the sales floor of my store. It is of sentimental value, and thats why I have it hanging there. It is listed in the A&D book and on the computer, though it is not for sale. At our last inspection, it was counted as part of the inventory, and no comments were made. Another dealer was told that any firearm on the premise must have a sales tag on it. What is the official ruling?
