On September 12, 1994, the Violent Crime Control and Law Start Printed Page 58792Enforcement Act (The Crime Bill) was signed into law, amending the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA), as amended Section 923(g) of Title 18 United States Code states that “Each licensee shall report the theft or loss of a firearms from the licensee's inventory or collection within 48 hours after the theft or loss is discovered to the Attorney General and to the appropriate local authorities.”
ATF F 3310.11 is the method used to determine compliance with the provision of the Crime Bill. The title of this form “Federal Firearms Licensee Firearms Inventory Theft/Loss Report,” satisfies the provisions of the Act which requires that licensees report the theft or loss of firearms to the Attorney General and the appropriate authorities. The information on this form is required by 18 U.S.C. 923(g)(6).
A separate form is required for each theft/loss report. The form must be prepared in ink, signed and dated. Upon completion of this form by the licensee reporting the theft or loss of firearms, the original will be forwarded to the Firearms Interstate Theft Program Manager and a copy will be retained as part of the licensee's permanent records.
6. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 4,000 respondents will complete this form. Based on pilot testing, an average of 24 minutes per respondent is needed to complete form ATF F 3310.11.
7. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 960 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take 24 minutes to complete a questionnaire. The burden hours for collecting respondent data sum to 4,000 (4,000 respondents × .24 hours = 960 hours).
