Understanding ATFs Top 10 GCA Violations and Ways to Avoid Citation

Hartford, CT – Orchid, the leader in FFL technology, payment processing, and firearm and explosives compliance services, is excited to announce an upcoming webinar on the ATF’s top 10 Gun Control Act (GCA) violations, scheduled for September 21 at 2 pm EST. This exclusive presentation will feature Andrew R. Graham, the former ATF Deputy Assistant Director who currently serves as the Chief Firearms and Explosives Officer at Orchid.

This carefully curated webinar is designed to equip Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) with an in-depth understanding of prevalent GCA violations, along with invaluable insights on effectively preventing citations.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) frequently identifies violations related to GCA regulations. In FY 2022, the ATF cited 11,215 violations of the GCA. The most cited violations encompass critical areas such as maintaining accurate records of firearm acquisitions and dispositions, adhering to ATF-prescribed form submissions, and compliance with specific regulations like 27 CFR 478.125(e), 27 CFR 478.21a, and more.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions related to the subject matter and receive real-time responses. Whether you’re a firearm dealer, distributor, importer, or manufacturer, this event is essential for navigating the ever-evolving GCA landscape while ensuring strict compliance. 

Join us on September 21 at 2 pm EST to gain the knowledge and expertise needed to navigate GCA regulations and avoid potential citations. Registration is free and available at orchidadvisors.com/webinar.
