The proposed information collection OMB 1140-0024 (Report of Firearms Transactions—Demand 2—ATF Form 5300.5) is also being revised due to a reduction in burden, since there is a decrease in the number of respondents, responses, and total burden hours from the previous renewal in 2015. The proposed information collection is also being published to obtain comments from the public and affected agencies.
Comments are encouraged and will be accepted for an additional 30 days until July 5, 2018.
