NSSF, ATF Launch Operation Secure Store

February 02, 2018  | 

NSSF and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) have announced the launch of Operation Secure Store (OSS), a comprehensive joint initiative to help Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) make well-informed security-related decisions to deter and prevent thefts.

Central to the OSS initiative is NSSF's prior partnerships with ATF to help prevent thefts from FFLs through educational programming, such as the ongoing series of regional seminars hosted by ATF. Additionally, the organizations' matching rewards program becomes an anchor component of the program, effectively doubling the money offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for thefts from licensed retailers, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

"No one wants to prevent the theft of firearms more than the licensed retailers that sell them," said Stephen L. Sanetti, NSSF president and chief executive officer. "There is no one-size fits all solution to helping prevent thefts from firearms retailers, which is why Operation Secure Store will provide access to information and training to allow retailers to make the decisions that are right for them."

"It's clear from the crime guns we recover every day that firearms stolen from FFL retailers are a serious threat to public safety" said ATF Deputy Director Thomas Brandon. "To mitigate this threat, ATF welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with the NSSF to educate and inform FFL retailers on how they can enhance the security of their businesses."
