SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Attorney General is responsible for 
enforcing the provisions of the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA), 18 
U.S.C. Chapter 44. He has delegated that responsibility to the Director 
of ATF, subject to the direction of the Attorney General and the Deputy 
Attorney General. 28 CFR 0.130(a). ATF has promulgated regulations that 
implement the provisions of the GCA in 27 CFR part 478.
    Section 922(g) of the GCA prohibits certain persons from shipping 
or transporting any firearm in interstate or foreign commerce, or 
receiving any firearm which has been shipped or transported in 
interstate or foreign commerce, or possessing any firearm in or 
affecting commerce. These prohibitions apply to any person who--
    (1) Has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by 
imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
    (2) Is a fugitive from justice;
    (3) Is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance;
    (4) Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a 
mental institution;
    (5) Is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States; or 
with certain exceptions, aliens admitted to the United States under a 
nonimmigrant visa;
    (6) Has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable 
conditions;
    (7) Having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced U.S. 
citizenship;
    (8) Is subject to a court order that restrains the person from 
harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of 
such intimate partner; or
    (9) Has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of 
domestic violence.
    The term ``person'' is defined in section 921(a)(1) as including 
``any individual, corporation, company, association, firm, partnership, 
society, or joint stock company.'' Section 925(c) of the GCA provides 
that a person who is prohibited from possessing, shipping, 
transporting, or receiving firearms or ammunition may make application 
to the Attorney General to remove the firearms disability imposed under 
section 922(g) ``if it is established to his satisfaction that the 
circumstances regarding the disability, and the applicant's record and 
reputation, are such that the applicant will not be likely to act in a 
manner dangerous to public safety and that the granting of the relief 
would not be contrary to the public interest.'' The Attorney General 
has delegated the authority to grant relief from firearms disabilities 
to the Director of ATF.
    Section 925(c) further provides that ``[w]henever the Attorney 
General grants relief to any person pursuant to this section he shall 
promptly publish in the Federal Register notice of such action, 
together with the reasons therefor.'' Regulations implementing the 
provisions of section 925(c) are set forth in 27 CFR 478.144.
    Since 1992, Congress has prohibited ATF from expending appropriated 
funds to investigate or act upon applications for relief from federal 
firearms disabilities. However, since 1993 Congress has authorized ATF 
to expend appropriated funds to investigate and act upon applications 
filed by corporations for relief from Federal firearms disabilities.
    An application to ATF for relief from Federal firearms disabilities 
under 18 U.S.C. 925(c) was submitted for Action. In the matter under 
review, Action was convicted in Federal court of crimes punishable by 
imprisonment for a term exceeding one year. Specifically, Action was 
convicted on May 21, 2014, in the United States District Court for the 
Eastern District of Pennsylvania, for violations of 42 U.S.C. 
6928(d)(2) and 49 U.S.C. 5124.
    Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 925(c), on May 22, 2017, Action was granted 
relief by ATF from the disabilities imposed by Federal law, 18 U.S.C. 
922(g)(1), with respect to the acquisition, receipt, transfer, 
shipment, transportation, or possession of firearms as a result of 
these convictions. It has been established to ATF's satisfaction that 
the circumstances regarding Action's disabilities and its record and 
reputation are such that Action will not be likely to act in a manner 
dangerous to public safety, and that the granting of the relief would 
not be contrary to the public interest.

    Date Approved: August 7, 2017.

Acting Director.
