Abstract: Each licensed firearms manufacturer or licensed firearm importer must legibly identify each firearm by engraving, casting, stamping (impressing), or otherwise conspicuously placing on the frame or receiver an individual serial number; which will be used to facilitate VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:14 May 01, 2018 Jkt 244001 investigations about the criminal use of firearms. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 13,868 respondents will utilize this information collection, and it will take each respondent approximately 1 minute to complete each response. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated annual public burden associated with this collection is 85,630 hours which is equal to 13,868 (# of respondents) * 370.4767089702913 (# of responses per respondents) * 0.0166667 hours (1 minute). 7. An Explanation of the Change in Estimates: Although there is an increase in the number of respondents to this collection by 2,654, the total responses, and burden hours have reduced by 401,768, and 6,696 respectively, due to a general reduction of imported firearms. Consequently, the public burden cost for this information collection was also reduced by $ 369,627.
