Who has an FFL license?

Josh Sugarmann, head of the Violence Policy Center. That's who.

Check yourself at the ATF's FFLeZCheck Website. Go ahead and enter the numbers above 1-54-XXX-XX-XX-00725

Now in order to get an FFL you have to have a retail store. Notice also that the address listed is for Washington DC where it is pretty much illegal for regular citizens to buy guns. With the FFL Josh gets to bypass said DC restriction and buy as many guns as he wants. He also gets buy said guns over the internet and through the mail without having to go to an FFL holding retail store.

VPC is also a Tax-Exempt organization 501(c)(3). This means they are not allowed to attempt to influence policy. Besides that however the FFL license held by Josh is reserved for retail establishments who are in the business of making money.

Besides all that having an FFL in Washington DC allowing Josh to bypass the DC Gun ban is nothing short of hypocrisy.

Now that the word is out Josh good luck keeping that FFL and your Tax-Exempt status. Oh yea and those guys knocking on your door to inspect your bound book and retail establishment? Those are the same guys that you and your ilk keep sending after legitimate FFL holders like Red's Trading Post.
