Travis Brown met with the Board to review his request to obtain an FFL (Federal Firearms License). Mr. Brown has applied for two 07 FFLs, one under his name and one under Granite State Munitions. The 07 FFL, allows manufacturing, which is basically putting pieces together and giving the finished piece a serial number. Both are e-commerce businesses, one will be used for government contracts and one will be used for retail sales. He will be set up for appointment only, but most of his business will be on-line, sales will be dealer to dealer. He has gun safes at the residence and will have a required “bound book” to record chain of custody on firearms. There are no plans to sell ammunition. Mr. Brown has written permission from the homeowners and has met all ATF requirements. Advertising will be on-line and in Gunbroker. The Board asked for copies of the ATF materials. Motion to approve a home occupation for Travis Brown based upon the information submitted in Mr. Brown’s letter of description of his proposed business and submission of copies of all documentation from the ATF, Police Chief, and a letter from the homeowners (Bowles/Dufresne). All in favor, motion carried.
