Urge Support for S. 1854 / H.R. 3790, the Federal Firearms Licensee Protection Act
There has been a troubling increase in the number of burglaries and robberies of federally licensed firearms retailers. According to ATF, over the past five years, FFL burglaries and robberies have drastically increased by 48% and 175%, respectively, resulting in the theft of approx. 7,758 guns which all too often end up being misused by criminals. The Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Protection Act would enhance penalties for thefts of firearms from FFLs, send a strong deterrent message to other criminals who might engage in this nefarious activity, and help to ensure that justice is served.
