Description

The Post's detailed examination of the federal Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms and the lax regulation that allows abuses to go unchecked reveals that: the average weapons dealer can expect an inspection from federal regulators about once every 20 years; getting a federal license to sell rifles, shotguns and handguns can be as easy as sending in a two-page form and paying a $30 fee; chances are nearly nine out of 10 that no one will interview you beforehand; and, renewal of the three-year license are nearly automatic. (Nov. 29 - 30, 1992)
